Sex Education season 3: release date, cast and plot of the Netflix show
The series follows the lives of students as they struggle to understand each other and grow. Its honest and raw storylines have attracted a host of loyal fans.
With the season two finale handing out an array of tantalizing cliffhangers that have left fans eager to find out what will happen next, we all look forward to the next series.
What is the release date for Season 3 of Sex Education?
Following a delay caused by the coronavirus outbreak, production of Sex Education Season 3 began in September.
The second series started a long time ago in January 2020, but Ted Sarandos, director of content for Netflix, has promised that the third season will air in the second half of 2021.
Who is in the cast of Sex Education season 3?
Viewers should expect to see the return of the main actors in sex education for season three: Otis (Asa Butterfield), Maeve (Emma Mackey), Eric (Ncuti Gatwa), Jean (Gillian Anderson), Adam (Connor) Swindells), Aimee (Aimee Lou Wood), Jackson (Kedar Williams-Stirling), Ola (Patricia Allison), Lily (Tanya Reynolds) and Mr. Groff (Alistair Petrie).
You would also expect to see Steve (Chris Jenks), Miss Sands (Rakhee Thakrar), Mr. Hendricks (Jim Howick), Ola Jakob’s father (Mikael Persbrandt), Maureen (Samantha Spiro), Sofia (Hannah Waddingham) and Roz (Sharon) Duncan-Brewster) and Remi (James Purefoy).
Jemima Kirke also joined the cast ahead of the series’ third round. The Girls star landed the role of the new director of Moordale High, seeing her succeed Mr. Groff.
Jason Isaac also joined the series’ stellar lineup as the – more successful – brother of the disgraced director.
What is the plot of Season 3 of Sex Education?
Although an official script has yet to be confirmed, in an interview with The Guardian Asa gave us a glimpse of what to expect.
“ There’s a little time jump from the cliffhanger in season two, ” Asa said.
“ Otis is back to school but he has different things on his plate. He grew up a bit and got a bit more sassy. It was fun portraying his new charisma. Don’t worry, though, he’s still tragically awkward too.
He also explained Otis’ will-power relationship with Maeve: “ Their relationship continues to develop in season three. We also explore why Otis ran his sex therapy clinic in the first place. Was it just to be close to Maeve or did it come true by helping people?
There are also a lot of details from the previous series that need to be fixed.
For example, Jean learns that she is pregnant in the season finale after her relationship with Jakob has already broken down. Adam has also finally publicly stated his feelings for Eric, so we’re sure to see how their relationship develops.
Additionally, Maeve’s friend Isaac (George Robinson) deleted Otis’ voicemail message to Maeve telling her that he loves her. Maeve also found out that her mother (Anne-Marie Duff) was using drugs again and called social services for her.
This is only the tip of the iceberg, as there is still a lot to discover and explore.
Is there a trailer for Season 3 of Sex Education?
Unfortunately, no trailer has yet been released for the third series.
Fortunately, we have received a teaser to allow us to continue while we wait.
The third sex education series is slated to air on Netflix later this year.
