<i>Sex Education</i> Returns (Again)

Sex Education is set to return for Season 3. The dramedy starring Asa Butterfield as the shy Otis Milburn, the unofficial sex therapist for his high school who delves into quandaries of his own as he embarks on a relationship with Ola Nyman (Patricia Allison) in Season 2, has proven to be a hit with Netflix’s audience. The talented ensemble cast, including Gillian Anderson, Emma Mackey, Ncuti Gatwa, Aimee Lou Wood, Connor Swindells, Kedar Williams-Stirling and Tanya Reynolds, is part of the show’s many charms—plus, the series has a knack for treating sex with sensitivity and wry, plucky humor.

A new promo video accompanies the announcement, which comes just a few weeks after the show debuted Season 2 on Jan. 17. In the video, Principal Groff (Alistair Petrie) walks through a school hallway with uncanny portraits of the cast flanking the wall. There is Otis with “an arousing wheel of Brie”; “Eric asking the old question, ‘he loves me, he loves me not’”; “Lily and her violets, a Greek symbol of lesbian and bisexual love”; and Dr. Jean Milburn, “a pomegranate, a symbol of fertility.”

Sex Education Season 3 will air in 2021. The first two seasons are currently available to stream on Netflix.
