As a result of its progressive attitude, brilliant characters, and, well, Gillian Anderson, it is safe to say we are obsessed with Netflix’s Sex Education. We lapped up the initial series, desperately sneaked down to the release of this second period, and we’re ecstatic that a third installment is on the way!
This is what we understand about Sex Education Season 3, from release date to potential storylines and trailers and teaser pics.
Sex Education season 3 release date: When is it coming to Netflix?
Give us an easy question why not! It is unclear at the moment during Sex Education season three is expected to be released on Netflix, though there’s a rumor (started on Reddit) it could premier in June or July. Fandom has reported the show will debut on Netflix after this year.
Seasons two and one premiered on the platform in January — 2019 and 2020, but as a result of the difficult past year we have all endured, the next installment of this series began filming later than originally intended.
On 9th September 2020 Netflix declared that season three of Sex Education was officially in production — sharing a picture of a script covered in doodles of the aubergine emoji, hearts, along with the classic”cool S”:
Obtaining going ASAP was particularly important because they show is reliant on filming during long summer days, which can help give Sex Education its American-style aesthetic.
Sex Education season 3 cast: who we expect to return
Even though a full cast list for season three is yet to be confirmed, Netflix announced some fascinating new names to the Sex Education season 3 cast in September. Jason Isaac’s Peter Groff should prove an excellent foil to his headteacher brother, with recording artist Dua Saleh as a returning student who clashes with the new headmistress, Hope, performed with Jemima Kirke (Girls, Tiny Furniture).
We also feel pretty confident in assuming that the characters featured in the teaser movie are returning. Series headliners Asa Butterfield (Otis Milburn) and Gillian Anderson (Dr. Jean Milburn) are featured, along with a sizable chunk of this supporting cast including Emma Mackey (Maeve Wiley), Ncuti Gatwa (Eric Effiong), Connor Swindells (Adam Groff), and Patricia Allison (Ola Nyman). Given how heavily season 2 leaned to an outfit narrative approach, it would be difficult to envision the series returning without the bulk of the cast reprising their roles.
What will happen in Sex Education season 3?
At the beginning of June, Asa Butterfield, aka Otis, tweeted, “Lemme only say, you lot are not ready for season 3, trust me.”
He also revealed in a meeting from January 2021 the next series will not begin where the second series left off (e.g. from the cliffhanger, where Otis admitted his feelings for Maeve at a biography, which had been deleted by Isaac.)
“There’s a small time-jump since the season two cliffhanger,” Asa told The Guardian. “Otis is back in school but he’s got different things on his plate. He has grown up a little and become marginally sassier. It has been fun to portray his newfound charm. Do not worry, however, he’s still tragically awkward too.”
He continued, “We have snapped by paparazzi while filming, and individuals have been freaking out about Otis having a mustache. I can only reveal it’s not real.
“it is a stunt’tache and thankfully it doesn’t last the whole season. I don’t think anyone could endure looking at that thing for long.”
