Christine Reade is a law student and an intern at a prestigious firm but her focus quickly shifts when a classmate introduces her to the world of transactional relationships. Known as GFEs, they are women who provide "The Girlfriend Experience" - emotional and sexual relationships at a price. Juggling two lives, Christine is drawn into the GFE world, attracted to the rush of control and intimacy.
It is being reported that Starz has handed out a second-season renewal to The Girlfriend Experience. The freshman drama premiered earlier this year with a 13-episode run, drawing modest viewership while being overall well-received critically.
The episode count has been bumped up by one to 14 for Season 2, and while the same showrunners will be returning, fans can expect all-new characters and storylines for the show's sophomore season. Rather than continue with Christine's journey from Season 1, producers will be exploring fresh GFEs, clients, and relationships.
