We’re heading back to Moordale Secondary School sooner than you’d think! Sex Education has been a major hit for Netflix since the British series debuted back in 2019. The show follows protagonist Otis (Asa Butterfield), a high schooler whose mom, Jean (Gillian Anderson), is a sex therapist. Though Otis is a bit awkward and dorky, he soon becomes popular when he starts giving sex and love advice to his fellow classmates.
The second installment of Sex Education proves to be more complicated for Otis as he comes to terms with his feelings for Maeve (Emma Mackey) and has a few ups and downs with his best friend Eric (Ncuti Gatwa).
The characters in Sex Education are so fun, complex, and relatable, it’s hard not to become obsessed once you start watching. And fortunately, Sex Education season 3 is on its way.
When is Sex Education season 3 coming out?
While we don’t have the exact release date for Sex Education season 3, we’ve just got confirmation that it will debut at some point in 2021. According to a shareholder letter published by Netflix on April 20, the comedy series is on the lineup of returning shows for the back half of the year. How exciting!
Netflix also confirmed a handful of other shows will be returning this year, writing:
We anticipate paid membership growth will re-accelerate in the second half of 2021 as we ramp into a very strong back half slate with the return of big hits like Sex Education, The Witcher, La Casa de Papel (aka Money Heist), and You, as well as an exciting array of original films including the finale to The Kissing Booth trilogy and large scale, star-driven features like Red Notice (starring Gal Gadot, Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds) and Don’t Look Up (with an all-star cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Cate Blanchett, Timothée Chalamet, and Meryl Streep).
Sex Education season 2 ends on a cliffhanger for Otis and Maeve, so I’m desperate to find out what happens next between them. In case you forgot, Otis finally works up the courage to tell Maeve how he feels, but when he heads to her place she’s not home. Before leaving, Otis tells Maeve’s neighbor Isaac, who also has feelings for her, to tell her to check her voicemail.
Of course, Otis leaves an adorable message for Maeve to hear, but unfortunately, she never will. Isaac decides to delete the voicemail from her phone, and so it looks like Sex Education season 3 will involve another love triangle for Otis and Maeve.
We’ll keep you updated once we get the confirmed release date for Sex Education season 3. For now, I’m just thrilled to hear it will be hitting Netflix in the coming months!Next: 5 Netflix shows that could be canceled and 5 shows that could be renewed
