Netflix Confirms ‘Sex Education’ Will Return for Season 3

Share on Facebook

Since it first aired in 2018, Sex Education has been one of Netflix’s biggest hits – becoming one of the most talked-about shows on the platform.

As you’d expect, the second season, which dropped just a few weeks ago, has already raked in heaps of praise from viewers, who quickly rallied for a third offering of the show.

Well, there’s been some good news…

Sex Education became one of Netflix’s unlikely smash hits.

The British comedy-drama, created by Laurie Nunn, took the world by storm when it hit our screens in 2018.

The show centers on Otis, the awkward, slightly nerdy son of a sex therapist.

Otis decides to go into business with Maeve (an edgy girl who he has a massive crush on) and give out sex advice to the teenagers at their school.

There’s no doubt that it has been a smash hit with viewers, with many eager to binge their way through the episodes.

Sex Education plays into the high school stereotypes we all know…

The troublemaker, the jock, the nerds, the outcasts… But it does a great job of subverting those clichés and making its characters three-dimensional.

The show tackles a range of hard-hitting and important issues including abortion, sexual assault, sexuality, and race.

And it’s always been in the back of our minds while we’ve been watching.

From the ’80s clothes to the American high school with British kids – many people couldn’t get their heads around when and where the series is meant to take place.

This makes so much sense now…

And it’s safe to say that the show’s second offering was no disappointment.

And the “shocking” opening scene attracted a lot of attention.

But would we expect anything less of Sex Education?

And fans really didn’t know what to make of it. We really were thrown in at the deep end with this one…

Make of it what you will…

The second season of the coming of age epic has raked in tons of praise from viewers.

Especially since there were many answered questions.

Viewers quickly declared their desperation for a third installment. Keep scrolling for all the info…

And it seems our prayers have finally been answered…

Netflix has confirmed that the show has been renewed for a third season!

“Alistair Petrie guides us through the Moordale High art exhibition, with a surprise revelation at the end. Sex Education Season 3 is coming,” the video was captioned.

And fans instantly took to Twitter to express their delight.

Speaking to LADbible last month, co-creator and writer, LaurieNunn said: “I’ve started writing series three, but that’s just a very normal part of the process because we work on such tight schedule, and season three hasn’t been greenlit yet or officially commissioned.”

As of yet, there’s no official release date. Fingers crossed we won’t be waiting long! In the meantime, keep scrolling to learn more about another binge-worthy Netflix offering.
