Sex Lives Of College Girls Season 3 Is Finally Filming

It's been soooo long!

The end of Season 2 of The Sex Lives of College Girls brought with it the end of the titular girls’ freshman year of school at Essex College. That means when they return, they’ll be sophomores — older but not necessarily much wiser. And sadly, it sounds like one of the main girls will be transferring out of Essex in the new year. Here’s everything to know so far about The Sex Lives of College Girls Season 3, including who’s returning and when it might hit Max.

Max announced The Sex Lives of College Girls’ Season 3 renewal on Dec. 14, the day before Season 2’s final two episodes hit the streamer. The announcement came as a relief to fans, especially once they saw all the wild cliffhangers Season 2 ended on.

Warning: Spoilers for The Sex Lives of College Girls Season 2 follow. From Leighton (Renée Rapp) rekindling things with her ex, Alicia (Midori Francis), to the brewing love triangle between Kimberly (Pauline Chalamet), Whitney (Alyah Chanelle Scott), and Canaan (Christopher Meyer), the girls’ sex lives are messier than ever before. And to top it all off, Bela (Amrit Kaur) found herself at such a low point academically and socially that she left the season trying to transfer out of Essex.


With all that up in the air, there’s a lot of story to cover in TSLCG Season 3.

The New Trimester Is Coming Soon

The SLOGC team finally dropped the announcement fans had waited over a year for in February 2024. Cast members Renika Williams and Ilia Isorelýs Paulino both shared photos from the season’s first table read, which took place on Feb. 19, according to the script pages.


With production finally underway, fans can hopefully expect the new season to begin airing in mid-2024.

1 Main Character Is Transferring Out

It seems like TSLCG is making a habit out of parting ways with major characters each season. After Season 1, Gavin Leatherwood left the series, and now his on-screen sister is following in his footsteps. On July 10, Deadline reported that Reneé Rapp will be leaving Sex Lives of College Girls in Season 3. Rapp will reportedly only appear in a few Season 3 episodes as her character Leighton, and then permanently exit before the season’s finale.


The show’s co-creator Justin Noble confirmed the news of Rapp’s exit on Instagram, sharing his support and writing, “We will miss both Reneé and Leighton.”


Rapp shared her own farewell message on her Instagram Stories shortly after the announcement. “Playing Leighton has changed my life,” she wrote. “I love who I am 10x more than I did before knowing her.”


Rapp’s departure is definitely a shock considering she’s part of the show’s main foursome, but so far, she’s the only announced cast member who’s not returning. Although Season 2’s ending teased a potential exit for Amrit Kaur’s Bela, she’ll be sticking around alongside her suitemates Kimberly (Pauline Chalamet) and Whitney (Alyah Chanelle Scott).

The first two seasons of TSLCG are streaming on Max now.
