When Sex Education season two dropped on Netflix in January, Twitter was just as excited as 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’ 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 just announced with a lofty monologue from Principle Groff (Alistair Petrie).
Not a lot is 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?
I’m guessing we’ll have to wait until January 2021. It stands to reason that since seasons one and two launched almost exactly one year apart in January, season three will continue the trend. At least a couple of members of the cast have other projects going on at the moment. Anderson will be taking on the role of Margaret Thatcher in The Crown season four. Emma Mackey, on the other hand, will be interrogated by Kenneth Branagh in Death on the Nile.
Fans are freaking out. Let’s just say, the folks on Twitter approve.
Unfortunately, that’s literally all we can say with confidence for now. Make sure to check back here for updates.
