STARZ's anthology series The Girlfriend Experience was a success within two installments. The 2nd round of the legal thriller has even surpassed its predecessor in the ratings (+10.74%). By the way, both critics and viewers have positively met both seasons.
In fact, numerous positive factors pointed out the possibility of renewal. First, as mentioned above, the second season premiere has garnered 0.402 million viewers with a 0.10 demo rating among adults (P18-49). Though the key demo indicator has dropped up to 9%, the premiere has gathered more viewers. However, we can't say the same about the season finale since it has drawn only 176K viewers.
