Sex Education season three has officially been released.
Headmaster Groff announced the highly-anticipated third installment in the Netflix Original Series in February 2012.
Production began in September 2020. In June 2021, the first glimpse was taken at the future series.
So what are our Moordale students in store this term? Asa Butterfield (Otis), stated that we are not ready for season 3.
Sex Education season 3 release date
Netflix has now confirmed that Sex Education season 3 can be streamed starting Friday 17th September 2021.
Sex Education season 3 cast: Who’s returning and who’s new?
As season two ended, viewers can expect to see a variety of new relationships. Otis (Asa Butterfield), Maeve(Emma Mackey), Eric [Ncuti Gatwa], Jean (Gillian Anderson], Adam (Connor Swindells], Aimee (Aimee Lou) Jackson (Kedar Wilkins-Stirling), and the villainous Mr. Groff (“Alistair Petrie”) all appeared in the series’ renewal video.
Olivia (Simone Ashley), who was also cast as a lead role in Bridgerton Season 2 along with Tanya Reynolds and Ruby (Mini Keene), Anwar [Chaneil Kular], Ola (Patricia Allison], Ola’s dad Jakob (“Mikael Persbrandt”), Maureen (Samantha Spiro”), Miss Sands (Rakhee Thkrar)and Mr. Hendricks” (Jim Howick)
We may see more of Steve, Sofia, and Roz (Sharon Duncan–Brewster), as well as Remi (James Purefoy).
A few of the key cast members have been added to the show since its inception. Season two added three new cast members: Rahim, (Sami Outalbali), Jackson’s friend/tutor Viv (Chinenye Ezeudu), and Isaac (George Robinson). Unfortunately, the last one proved to be quite controversial at the season finale. They are still very important to the plot of season 2, so fans can expect them to be back in season 3.
Netflix has also announced several new additions for season 3. It is now known that the new headteacher will be played by Jemima, Girls’ star. We know she is a former pupil, and she wants to make Moordale a better place. Star Trek: Discovery star Jason Isaac joins the show’s stellar lineup as the successful, younger brother of Mr. Groff, a disgraced headteacher.
Cal will be played in the role of Cal by Dua Saleh (a gender-nonconforming singer and songwriter).

Maeve is back with Erin, Maeve’s mum (played beautifully by Anne Marie Duff), but Sean, Maeve’s brother (Edward Bluemel), hasn’t been seen since the first season. It seems unlikely that he’ll make an appearance in season three.
Bluemel indicated that he hopes to return to the show one day, but did not rule out appearing in season 3.
He said that he will wait and see if a return is possible. It’s something that has been talked about, and I believe, judging by those who have watched the show it makes sense for him to return.
“It’s interesting to play a character whose whole schtick is that it’s never there. Because you’re like, ‘Oh yes, we’ve been cast in this brilliant role’, but his main thing, which is that is never, never there. So it’s quite funny waiting.”
The star said, “I’d love for him to return.” According to what other people said, I think they would as well, so we may see Sean back down the road.
“The longer they keep him offscreen, the greater the effect when he comes back onto the screen. He might even die offscreen,” he stated. “Which could be thrilling in a different way to discover about!”
Laurie Nunn, Sex Education creator, about the show’s approach toward characters – old and modern.
“We take characters that we are familiar with, such as the school bully, loser, or popular girl, and we look into them to uncover the surprising aspects,” she explained. “Then you will realize that all of them are the same. They just want to fit in and feel accepted.
What’s the Sex Education, season 3 plot?
Sex Education prides its self in telling multiple stories with many characters. Otis, a teenage boy, started a sexual clinic for his high-school classmates. He explains the details of sex as well as sexuality and gender to them. He has seen a great sexual arc: from not feeling any sexual attraction to feeling it all the way through. He has casual sex with his girlfriend in season 3.
But does he know of other potentially fatal events? We learned that Jean the sex therapist was pregnant with the baby of the plumber. Maeve is his sexy feminist lover interest. Isaac deceitfully deleted Otis’ declaration of love via her voicemail. Otis is likely to believe that his love wasn’t reciprocated since season three has a longer period than season two.
Eric, Otis’s best buddy, has entered into a new relationship. Eric can’t seem to forget the bullying. After the shocking finale of season two, Aimee, a beautiful, but ditzy, discovers feminism. Jackson, a former swimming champ, has a new crush.
Mr. Groff, an old-fashioned and strict headmaster has been taken off the payroll. Hope, the headmistress who strives to make Hope’s school an outstanding one, replaces him. She started with school uniforms.
Netflix says we should prepare for “commitment animal, alien phenomena”, vulva cakes, and much more Madam Groff.”
