FX Renews Denis Leary Comedy Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll


LOS ANGELES: FX Networks has ordered a sophomore season of the FX comedy Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, created by and starring Denis Leary.

The ten-episode second season will return in 2016. Leary, Elizabeth Gillies, John Corbett, Elaine Hendrix, Robert Kelly and John Ales are all set to return. In addition to creating Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, Leary serves as a writer, composer and director, as well as an executive producer, along with Jim Serpico.

“We are thrilled with Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll and it proved to one of the highest-rated new comedies on cable this year,” said Eric Schrier, co-president of original programming at FX. “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.”

Leary commented, "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 kick-ass 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."
