Woohoo!!! My favorite has-been, Johnny Rock (creator/writer Denis Leary), his up and coming talented daughter Gigi (Liz Gillies), and the rest of The Heathens turned Assassins, Flash, Rehab, Bam Bam, and Ava (John Corbett, John Ales, Robert Kelly, and Elaine Hendrix), will return for Sex&Drugs& Rock&Roll season 2! Good job FX!
More on this and enjoy the SDRR music videos below.
I might be more excited than the cast at this announcement (ok, I’m probably exaggerating), but I have been praising it from the start, and I’m so happy that fans and FX agree. Another 10 episodes have been ordered, and we can all rest easy and look forward to more crazy antics from my favorite fictional band (sorry Stillwater!).
Eric Schrier, Co-President of FX Original Programming said of the renewal:
“We are thrilled with Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll and it proved to one of the highest-rated new comedies on cable this year.”
Denis Leary added:
“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.”
So everybody who has not yet jumped on the SDRR “band”wagon, let’s go. Catch up on season 1 now!
Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll centers on “Johnny Rock” (Denis Leary), lead singer of a legendary early 90’s New York band called The Heathens. Known for living up to their name, the band partied so long and so hard that even Keith Richards thought they needed to slow things down. The Heathens were on the brink of becoming famous for their kickass live shows and the release of their highly anticipated first album. Until they broke up. The same day the album dropped. Because lead guitarist Flash (John Corbett) found Johnny in bed with his wife. So the band became legendary for all the wrong reasons – like self-destructing sooner than any group in rock-n-roll history. 25 years later, the only thing bigger than Johnny’s ego is his prostate. The drugs he really needs now aren’t cocaine and marijuana – they’re Crestor, Cymbalta and Cialis. He’s out of work, out of money and out of show business options. That’s when a massively talented young singer named Gigi (Elizabeth Gillies) shows up – with a burning desire to be famous, a throwback appreciation for The Heathens’ only album, and a stack of cash big enough to bring the whole band back into the studio. Only this time, SHE’S the lead singer and Johnny’s just a behind-the-scenes songwriter. John Ales, Bobby Kelly and Elaine Hendrix round out the rest of this dysfunctional rock and roll family. The race is on to see who gets famous first – and for what reason.
