The Girlfriend Experience is coming back, but not like you’ve ever seen it before. Season 2 of the Starz show will not only feature brand new characters, but the action will also be split between two different story lines.

As seen in the new trailer, one track will follow Anna Garner (Louise Krause), a high-class provider of the titular “girlfriend experience,” as she gets involved with big-money Republican financier Erica Myles (Anna Friel). The two attempt to blackmail a dark money fundraiser, and the journey promises lasting consequences for both of them.

The other plot line revolves around Bria Jones (Carmen Ejogo), a former escort who enters the Witness Protection Program in order to escape an abusive ex. Placed under the watch of U.S. Marshal Ian Olsen (TV on the Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe), Bria nevertheless is drawn back to sex work, even as she must stay one step aside of her relentless ex.

Season 2 of The Girlfriend Experience premieres Nov. 2 on Starz. Check out the trailer above.

The Starz series, based on Stephen Soderbergh’s film of the same name, explores the life of a call girl, played by Riley Keough.
