Sex Life Season 2 has revealed some insane updates on its cast list. Here is everything we know.
Sex Life season 2 has added five new cast members, including Krypton actress Wallis Day. Sex/Life is based on BB Easton’s novel “44 Chapters About 4 Men.” Black Adam star Sarah Shahi plays Billie, a married mother of two facing a severe midlife crisis.
One of those new cast members is Wallis Day, who will play the character Gigi. The day is best known for her role as Catherine Hamilton-Kane on the CW series Batwoman. She also starred in ITV’s period drama Harlots and the BBC One film King Charles III.
Sources tell Deadline that Gigi, who is described as “a fully embracing woman who has been liberated from her old life,” will be pivotal to the show’s narrative. The series is also in the process of casting a leading man for Billie — but after having seen Wallis Day in person, she’s a contender.
