FX Renews Denis Leary’s ‘Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll’ For Season 2

Denis Leary’s musical comedy “Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll” has been renewed for a second season, FX announced Wednesday. The half-hour series will return with 10 new episodes in 2016, starring Leary, Elizabeth Gillies, John Corbett, Elaine Hendrix, Robert Kelly and John Ales.

The announcement was made by Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, Presidents of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions

“We are thrilled with ‘Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll’ and it proved to be one of the highest-rated new comedies on cable this year,” Schrier said. “We thank Denis and the rest of the cast, along with Jim Serpico and Tom Sellitti, for a terrific first season and look forward to indulging in more ‘Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll’ in season two.”

Added Leary, “The only thing that could make me happier about this announcement is if David Bowie decided to be a guest star during Season Two. In which case, my head would explode. Hopefully on-camera so we get a kickass viral video out of it. Not to mention awesome Live+3s. I look forward to once again creating new episodes of television with John Landgraf’s exceptional FX team. And scoring some cool ‘Bastard Executioner’ swag.”

Leary created the series and also serves as a writer, composer, director and an executive producer along with Jim Serpico. “S&D&R&R” is produced by FX Productions and Fox 21 Television Studios.
