Sex Education is the best comedy on Netflix right now. The series is also one of the most popular shows on Netflix around the world.
Unfortunately, it’s been a while since we’ve seen these characters in new episodes. Everyone is waiting to see what happens with Otis (Asa Butterfield) and Maeve (Emma Mackey), along with the rest of this great cast of characters.
Luckily, there have been a few developments lately about the Sex Education season 3 release date. We’ve shared those release date updates below.
How many seasons of Sex Education are there?
There are currently two seasons of Sex Education to stream on Netflix. The first season premiered on Netflix in January 2019. The second season followed in January 2020.
Now, we’re just waiting on Sex Education season 3.
Is there going to be a season 3 of Sex Education?
Yes! Netflix renewed Sex Education less than a month after the second season’s premiere. Unfortunately, Sex Education season 3 was delayed because of the pandemic.
Under normal circumstances, we would have seen Sex Education season 3 on Netflix by now.
Hopefully, Sex Education season 4 is already in the works at Netflix.
How many episodes are in Sex Education season 3?
It doesn’t look like Netflix has confirmed the episode count for season 3 yet. There are eight episodes in each of the first two seasons on Netflix. We have to assume there will be eight episodes in the third season of the series.
We’ll let you know more about the third season’s episode count when we find out. Plan on watching eight new episodes of Sex Education season 3 later this year.
When is Sex Education season 3 filming?
As mentioned, Sex Education season 3 was delayed because of the pandemic. We expected filming to start last spring, but that didn’t happen.
Production started on season 3 in September 2020 and continued through the fall and winter and into the spring of 2021.
Filming wrapped in March 2021.
Sex Education season 3 release date
Netflix confirmed a 2021 release date for Sex Education season 3 in its quarterly letter to shareholders.
It’s good because Sex Education season 3 might be released before Q4 (October). We could see the new season between July and September. It’s possible with such a short season.
It’s bad because the season 3 release date is still up in the air.
Based on when the season wrapped, I’m guessing it’s going to be a little later than July 2021. We know Never Have I Ever season 2 is coming in July, so I don’t think Netflix will stack the month with two of its best teen comedy shows.
I think it’s more likely that we’ll see Sex Education season 3 in September or October 2021. That’s much more in line with what we’ve seen from Netflix shows lately with the six-month-ish gap between the end of production and the release of the season.
So, that’s our prediction for the Sex Education season 3 release date: September or October 2021. We’ll let you know the official release date when it’s announced.Next: Best Netflix shows coming in 2021
