Speaking with the cast of Mean Girls, a movie that played a dominant role in my upbringing, was an honor. In school, everyone would playfully quote, “You go Glenn Coco!” Or the classic, “I don’t think my father, the inventor of Toaster Strudel, would be too pleased with this.” Expectations were very high with the release of a 2024 iteration of Mean Girls. And the expectations were not just met, but exceeded.
Exclusive: Pauline Chalamet, Reneé Rapp, Alyah Chanelle Scott and Amrit Kaur talk Season 2 of The Sex Lives Of College Girls
It’s a new semester at Essex College and Kimberly, Bela, Leighton, and Whitney are up to even more in the highly anticipated second season of the fan-favorite The Sex Lives of College Girls. From the exquisite minds of Mindy Kaling and Justin Noble, the series once again follows the four roommates as they navigate sex, relationships, passions, futures, and so much more. The show perfectly captures the ever-so-unique time period of being a college freshman, something that isn’t exactly comparable to anything else in life. The beauty of the series is that pretty much any viewer can see a representation of themself on screen, in the high highs and the low lows of the time in which the girls are constantly navigating.
In Season two, we meet the girls right as Thanksgiving break draws to a close and It’s time for a new semester. The girls (Pauline Chalamet’s Kimberly, Amrit Kaur’s Bela, Alyah Chanelle Scott’s Whitney, and Reneé Rapp’s Leighton) are not the same people that they were at the beginning of last semester, especially Kimberly, who is navigating the many changes that her life has seen. “You’ll see a Kimberly that’s facing much bigger problem and who is growing into herself,” Pauline said. “She’s forced to kind of grow up a little.”
We sat down with Pauline, Renee, Alyah and Amrit to talk all about season two! Check out the conversation below!

There are few parts of life that come with more uncertainty, awkwardness, freedom, and triumph than being a girl in her freshman year of college. Through living with people you’ve never met before and navigating the fact that there’s an entire world outside of your comfort zone, it’s a time of triumph that comes with so much more to discover alongside. Mindy Kaling’s new HBO show depicts all of these struggles in such a lighthearted and hillarious way, that sums up the ever present message; it’s okay to have sex. The importance of this show is not lost on viewers, even through the hilarious plot lines and the charm that all of the characters carry within themselves. Starring Pauline Chalamet as Kimberly, Reneé Rapp as Leighton, Alyah Chanelle Scott as Whitney, and Amrit Kuar as Bela, the show centers around a group of four randomly assigned roommates that the incredibly prestigious Essex College.
