Netflix’s heartwarming and daringly steamy latest popular series Sex Education has been renewed for season 3. It will start filming in May 2020 and will run until September 2020. Confirmation of the new season hit our radar less than a month after the premiere of its previous season on Netflix, which was admired heavily by critics and fans in January of this year.
The first series follows the story of Otis Milburn, a socially awkward teenager, who is ambivalent about sex, despite, or perhaps because of, his mother being a sex therapist who is frank about all aspects of sexuality. After inadvertently assisting the school bully with his sexual performance anxiety, Otis sets up a sex advice business with Maeve—a confident but troubled classmate—to educate their fellow students on how to deal with their own sexual problems.
The second series follows Otis who, after finally securing a relationship with Ola, is hit with the reality and pressures of a high school romance. That romance is further tested by the introduction of new students who challenge the status quo at Moordale High and a chlamydia outbreak that causes students to question and struggle with the topical issues.
