Billie is back at long last in Sex/Life season 2, and we have a feeling things are going to take a turn for the messy in the Netflix original. 

Our protagonist's erotic journaling in the series debut made her question what—and who—she wanted out of life: her reliable husband, Cooper (Mike Vogel), or her bad-boy ex, Brad (Adam Demos). It's been a minute since the steaminess (and that viral Adam Demos shower scene) but we have a feeling once we catch up with the with everyone, we'll be thrusted right back into the drama, temptation and longing.

Sarah Shahi and Adam Demos (a.k.a. Billie and Brad) might be a solid couple in real life, but on TV, they play a toxic on-again, off-again pair that should be really off...considering Billie's married with two children. 

However, her sexy scribbling caused her to revisit the past, ultimately tempting her to reunite with her volatile-yet-mesmerizing ex. We were left on quite a cliff-hanger at the end of the first season, and we're definitely curious to see which route Billie pursues. Plus, someone has her eye on Coop, so perhaps temptations will grow?

What did we tell you about the steaminess and temptation? Though we are treated to much in the way of plot, the teaser makes it clear that Billie has some choices to make.

When speaking to E! News after the series premiere, Shahi made it clear she really wanted to delve into Billie's confusing journey and uncover all the possibilities she has.

"For me, what it comes down to is having the guts to say I want more and going after that. And that doesn't make you a bad parent to want that," Shahi said. "You can still be a wife and a mom and be a sexual goddess at the same time."

What is the 'Sex/Life' season 2 release date?

Mark those planners: Sex/Life season 2 will make its way to Netflix on March 2. 

Is 'Sex/Life' based on a true story?

Many have asked, "Is Sex/Life based on a true story," and the answer is yes...though Netflix has taken some liberties with the material, of course.

The series is inspired by BB Easton's memoir, 44 Chapters About 4 Men. A real-life school psychologist, Easton adjusting to late-night feedings with her new baby and dug into a few erotic stories while up late. This inspired her to keep a sexy journal of her own...which her husband discovered.

A school psychologist adjusts to life as a wife and new mom by keeping an erotic journal of her past love lives. But what exactly happens when her husband finds out about her new creative endeavors? 

You'll want to hold onto your hats: the escapades continue with a spinoff series with four entries—Skin, Speed, Star and Suit—each dedicated to a lover from 44 Chapters.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Shahi explained that she is looking forward to bringing the story to life through a female's perspective.

"A lot of times, when you have female sexuality onscreen, it’s portrayed through the male POV, but this time, we really put it on its head by portraying everything through the female gaze," she revealed to the outlet. "So I thought that was just something that was so important to be a part of."

We'll be ready come March 2.
