Leighton Murray leaves Essex College.

‘The Sex Lives of College Girls’ star Reneé Rapp will not be returning as a series regular on the Max comedy, Variety confirmed. Rapp, who portrays wealthy college student Leighton, will appear in a few episodes of Season 3 as a recurring character, but will later leave the show.

Renewed for Season 3 in December, “The Sex Lives of College Girls” follows four roommates from the fictional Essex College as they juggle school, sexuality and friendships. Season 2 ended with Leighton finally hitting her stride after coming out as a lesbian to her dad and quitting her sorority.

The show, created by Mindy Kaling and Justin Noble, also stars Pauline Chalamet as Kimberly, Amrit Kaur as Bela, and Alyah Chanelle Scott as Whitney. Premiering in November 2021, “Sex Lives” performed well critically and commercially, bringing solid ratings to the streamer.

Along with starring as Regina George in the upcoming musical “Mean Girls,” Rapp has a burgeoning music career. She signed with Interscope Records last year and released her debut EP, “Everything to Everyone”, in November. Her debut album, “Snow Angel,” is due out August 18, and she’s embarking on an international tour from September.

“Colleges took me to Los Angeles and introduced me to some of my favorite people. Two and a half years later – it gave me all of you and this community,” Rapp wrote on Instagram after the breaking the news, “Thank you Mindy, Justin and everyone at Max for believing in me. A lot of queer work is understated – but playing Leighton changed my life. I love who I am 10 times more than before I knew her. I hope she gave you a little too. She is such a small part of the performance, but even the smallest parts matter. I wouldn’t be half the person I am without her and all of you. I love that female dog more than you think. I’m so excited for this season and can’t wait for you to see what we have to come for her and the girls.

Kaling posted on her Instagram story in support of Rapp, writing, “We love @reneerapp so much and of course we will be so sad to say goodbye to Leighton Murray! But we can’t wait to see our friend on tour!! »

Talk to Variety in the fall, Rapp said pursuing music full-time was always his end goal, even after landing “Sex Lives.”

“[I thought], I can do music on the side, I can just hustle. And now I just kept playing, because it keeps supporting the music…Playing was my way of fooling everyone that I deserved attention, so I could have this interview with you,” he said. she declared.

Deadline Hollywood was the first to report the news.
