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.
Starz announced today that The Girlfriend Experience will be returning for a third season. The good news should please fans who have been awaiting the show's fate; it has been nearly three years since its last renewal and more than a year and a half since its Season 2 finale.
As it did in its sophomore run, Season 3 will once again follow a completely new story. This time the setting is London, where a young neuroscientist in the city's tech scene begins exploring the 'girlfriend experience', only to become entangled in the various relationships she creates.
The cable network has ordered 10 episodes for Season 3 of The Girlfriend Experience, which will return in 2020.
