Showtime has renewed their Masters of Sex TV show for a third season. There will be another dozen episodes and production will begin early next year.
Masters of Sex follows the unusual lives of William Masters (Michael Sheen) and Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan), researchers whose work touched off the sexual revolution. Others in the cast include Caitlin FitzGerald, Teddy Sears, Annaleigh Ashford, Beau Bridges, Allison Janney, and Julianne Nicholson.
Airing on Sunday nights, initial viewings of season two episodes have been averaging 810,000 viewers each week. That’s down by 24% when compared to last year’s airings. The 12 episodes of season two are expected to finish running on September 28th.
What do you think? Are you still watching Masters of Sex? Are you glad that it’s been renewed for a third season, or should it have been cancelled to make way for something else?
