Sex Education Season 3 Given the Green Light by Netflix

Netflix announced today the streaming service has given the green light to Sex Education Season 3, a little over three weeks after the second season debuted on January 17. Sex Education Season 3 will launch in 2021.

Sex Education is about Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfield), a socially awkward high school student who lives with his sex therapist mother, Jean (Gillian Anderson).

In Season 1, Otis and friend Maeve Wiley (Emma Mackey) set up a sex clinic at school to capitalize on his intuitive talent for sex advice…

In Season 2, as a late bloomer Otis must master his newly discovered sexual urges in order to progress with his girlfriend Ola whilst also dealing with his now strained relationship with Maeve. 

Meanwhile, Moordale Secondary is in the throes of a Chlamydia outbreak, highlighting the need for better sex education at the school and new kids come to town who will challenge the status quo.

Maeve and Aimee’s (Aimee Lou Wood) BFF relationship is stronger than ever since Aimee ditched ‘the Untouchables’. 

Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) notices his new-found self-confidence attracting unfamiliar kinds of attention. Jean and Jakob’s (Mikael Persbrandt) relationship is discovered and they have to learn how to operate as a blended family.

Adam (Connor Swindells) is at military school, still conflicted by his feelings for Eric. 

Lily (Tanya Reynolds) has hit pause on her sexual endeavours to focus on her creative talents and finds a new found friend in Ola (Patricia Allison).

And Jackson (Kedar Willaims-Stirling) is forced to flex his mental rather than physical muscle and is still buckling under the pressure from his parents to succeed.

The series is written and created by Laurie Nunn and produced by Eleven. Season 2 is directed by Ben Taylor, Alice Seabright and Sophie Goodhart.

Jamie Campbell, Laurie Nunn and Ben Taylor are also Executive Producers on the series.

The series stars Asa Butterfield, Gillian Anderson, Emma Mackey, Ncuti Gatwa, Connor Swindells, Aimee-Lou Wood, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Chaneil Kular, Simone Ashley, Mimi Keene, Tanya Reynolds, Mikael Persbrandt, Patricia Allison, Jim Howick, Rakhee Thakrar, Samantha Spiro, and Alistair Petrie.
