When Sex Education season two dropped on Netflix in January, Twitter users were just as excited as they were a year ago, when the charming British coming-of-age story first debuted.
More of Gillian Anderson and Asa Butterfield’s chemistry as mother-son duo Jean and Otis Milburn is obviously always welcome, but it was some of the characters outside the sex therapists’ home that were given a chance to shine brighter this season, in particular Aimee Gibbs (Aimee Lou Wood), who goes through an achingly relatable #MeToo ordeal on a public bus that Glamour‘s Jessica Radloff describes as the series’ “most crucial” moment to watch.
Meanwhile, Maeve (Emma Mackey) and Otis’s never-ending drama goes on, Maeve makes a heartbreaking decision regarding her mom, and Adam (Connor Swindells) had a declaration for Eric (Ncuti Gatwa). One of the greatest things about Sex Education is its unflinching forays into topics often ignored on other “high school” series, which is why season three can’t come soon enough. Here’s everything we know so far.
It’s happening. Netflix announced the news in February 2020 with a lofty monologue from Principle Groff (Alistair Petrie).
Not a lot was revealed in the one-minute clip, but it does look like we’ll be delving further into the relationship between “cherubs” Adam and Eric. Who else can’t wait?
Fans freaked out. Let’s just say, the folks on Twitter approved.
We finally have a release date! Well over a year after the initial season three announcement, Netflix has confirmed a drop date! Drumroll, please….September 17, 2021!
As usual, there will be eight episodes total, but that’s not all we know. Netflix dumped a lot more information on us on June 24.
Here’s the synopsis, per Deadline: “It’s a new year, Otis is having casual sex, Eric and Adam are official, and Jean has a baby on the way. Meanwhile, new headteacher Hope (played by Jemima Kirke) tries to return Moordale to a pillar of excellence, Aimee discovers feminism, Jackson gets a crush and a lost voicemail still looms. Prepare for commitment animals, alien phenomena, vulva cupcakes, and much more of Madam Groff.”
You read that right! There are some new players in town. Aside from Kirke, People reports that Dua Saleh will make their acting debut as Cal, a “nonbinary student at Moordale, who instantly clashes with Hope’s new vision for the school.”
There are more pics! One vision for the school seems to be new uniforms…and Adam seems to be returning to Moordale?
