Netflix has announced the release date for season 3 of their comedy series “Sex Education” as well as sharing some brand new photos. The show stars Gillian Anderson and Asa Butterfield and will return on September 17th. It originally premiered in January 2019 with Season 2 following on in January 2020. The series was officially renewed in February 2020 just before the Covid-19 pandemic affected schedules all over the world hence the reason for the delay!
Season 2 brought with it new cast members including Chinenye Ezeudu as Viv a super intelligent student, who is talented at everything but love; Sami Outalbali will play Rahim a new french student who turns heads; and George Robinson as Isaac who creates waves when he moves into Maeve’s caravan park.

Meet Otis Milburn – an inexperienced, socially awkward high school student who lives with his mother, a sex therapist. Surrounded by manuals, videos and tediously open conversations about sex, Otis is a reluctant expert on the subject. When his home life is revealed at school, Otis realizes that he can use his specialist knowledge to gain status. He teams up with Maeve, a whip-smart bad-girl, and together they set up an underground sex therapy clinic to deal with their fellow students’ weird and wonderful problems. Through his analysis of teenage sexuality, Otis realises he may need some therapy of his own.
