Sex Box is no more, but the advice series may see a second life in a new form.
EW has confirmed that WEtv pulled Sex Box from its schedule after five original episodes, the last of which aired on March 27. The Hollywood Reporter originally reported the news.
“Sex Box was a bold programming swing that broke new ground but did not connect with large numbers of viewers,” a representative for WEtv said in a statement. “We are working with our production partners on a potential reformatted version of the show and are thankful for the efforts of everyone involved.”
The series invited couples onto the show to have sex in a soundproof, camera-free box on stage. Afterward, they analyzed their sex life with a panel of therapists and counselors. There is currently no specific information about what the new format, if it moves forward, would keep or alter.
Sex Box is the second sex-related reality show in as many weeks to get the ax, following Neighbors with Benefits, which A&E canceled earlier this month. Neighbors with Benefits, a show about swingers, only lasted two episodes before getting pulled. Both it and Sex Box originally received nine-episode seasons.
