Showtime’s period drama Masters of Sex was one of the most pleasant surprises of the 2013-2014 season, and is a series that’s helped the network repair its tainted reputation. Don’t get me wrong, they’ve certainly put out some great shows over the past few years, but have not managed to garner the same positive reactions that other networks, like AMC and HBO, have.
Now that Mad Men and Game of Thrones are on break until next year, we’ll need something to fill the void left in our television-loving hearts, and Masters of Sex is certainly the show to do it. Luckily, we won’t have to wait long to satiate our appetites. The show returns on July 13th, and until then, we can feast our eyes on this first trailer for the upcoming season.
Last year, Dr. Bill Masters (Michael Sheen) succeeded in expanding his study on human sexuality. However, he struggled with defining the line between professional and personal dedication to his work and struck up a relationship with his research assistant, Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan). By the looks of it, things are about to get even more complicated this season. As their relationship continues, Bill’s tense marriage comes to a head and his work and personal career are put in jeopardy.
Check out the trailer below, along with a new official one sheet, and make sure to let us know if you’re excited for Masters of Sex season 2 in the comments section!
