However, Sarah Shahi recently criticized the current season, claiming that she did not receive adequate assistance from Netflix and threatening to sever her working relationship with the streaming service.
Speaking on the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast, she said: “I’m not going to put it down, but I definitely did not have the support that I did the first season from the people involved in the show. It became a much different thing for me, and I’m not afraid to say that.
“I struggled with the material. I just felt the thing that it had the first season — I mean, I’m never gonna work for Netflix again now after saying all this, but I can’t lie. And it was definitely a challenge.”
In comparison to the first season, Sarah Shahi stated that there were “more gimmicky moments.”
“Those kinds of things for me are always really hard to read… But I didn’t have to do them. The boys did,” she said. “There were other things that I just felt I couldn’t get behind, and it was just challenging.”
On Friday (April 7), a Deadline report revealed that a Netflix representative confirmed that the show had come to an end, saying that the second season “brought the series to a natural close.”
Interestingly, Stacy Rukeyser, the showrunner of S*x/Life, told The Hollywood Reporter following the broadcast of season two that the finale was not written as the show’s ending and that she expected another season to tie out the tale.
“The episode was never intended to be a series finale, that’s for sure,” she said.
“I know there are always more stories to tell with these characters in the S*x/Life universe, and I hope we get the chance to tell those stories. It was important that we get to a meaningful place with each character this season.”
