The hit Netflix show will return on Friday, September 17 for a third season after the second season ended on a cliffhanger back in January 2020.

The third season will see regular characters such as Otis and Maeve return, with a handful of new characters such as a fresh new headmistress of Moordale High, the school which is the main setting of the show’s plot.

Production of the hit show came to a halt after Coronavirus restrictions were brought in around the world, making the wait between the second and upcoming third season of the show longer than anticipated.

Asa Butterfield, who plays the main character, Otis Milburn, said that the third season will not immediately pick up where the second season left off. At the end of the second season, Otis finally declared his love for his school friend Maeve in a voicemail that he left to her, only for the message to be played and then later deleted by Isaac, much to fans’ despair.

Asa told The Guardian:

“Otis is back at school but he’s got different things on his plate. He’s grown up a bit and become slightly more sassy. It’s been fun to portray his newfound charisma. Don’t worry, though, he’s still tragically awkward too.”

Season 2 of Sex Education tackled many prevalent issues within society, such as Aimee’s trauma due to a sexual assault she experienced, as well as gender identity issues portrayed by Ola’s character arc and sexual identities.

Several characters, including Otis (Asa Butterfield), Maeve (Emma Mackay), Jean (Otis’ Mum, Gillian Anderson), Otis’ friend Eric (Ncuti Gatwa), Aimee (Aimee Wood), Adam (Connor Swindells), Ola (Patricia Allison), Ola’s dad Jakob (Mikael Persbrandt) as well as Season 2’s headmaster Mr Groff (Alistair Petrie) will all feature in Season 3.

Sex Education Season 3 is now only a week away and premieres September 17 exclusively on Netflix.
