With filming wrapped up recently, the release date for Season 3 of Sex Education on Netflix is fast approaching. In the meantime, at the editorial staff of Urban Fusions, we have decided to give you a little recap of everything we know so far about Sex Education season 3.
Among all the information that has been leaked regarding the new episodes, there have been several interesting casting announcements. So we can expect to see some new faces in Season 3. Asa Butterfield, who plays Otis, also gave some plot lines for the sequel to Sex Education.
What is the release date of Season 3 of Sex Education
Sex Education Season 3 began production in September 2020 (it was delayed from April due to the coronavirus), but unfortunately we still don’t have a release date. However, we did some math to try to figure out when we might expect it. Netflix announced that Sex Education was renewed for a season 2 on February 1, 2019, and that the season will launch on January 17, 2020. The season 3 announcement was also made in February 2020; Obviously, a start date in January 2021 is not an option since filming has been delayed this time around. If you factor in that five-month delay, Season 3 of Sex Education could air after the summer.
Sex Education Season 3 Casting
Good news, many familiar faces will return to pick up where we left off at the end of Season 2. Asa Butterfield will be back as Otis, and Gillian Anderson as her sex therapist mother, Jean. Other returning students from Moordale are Ncuti Gatwa (Eric, Otis’ best friend), Emma Mackey (Maeve), Aimee Lou Wood (Aimee), Connor Swindells (Adam), Kedar Williams-Stirling (Jackson), Patricia Allison (Ola) and Tanya Reynolds (Lily). Alistair Petrie will also reprise his role as Adam’s father and former school principal, Mr. Groff. There are also a few new faces in the cast. Actress Jemima Kirke will play Hope, the new director of Moordale, while musician Dua Saleh will be the non-binary student Cal. Jason Isaacs will play the role of Peter Groff, Groff’s older brother.
Sex Education Plot: What’s Going To Happen?
As for confirmed plot details, we don’t have many yet, but Asa Butterfield (who plays Otis) gave us the first clues as to what we can expect from Season 3 in an interview with The Guardian.
“There’s a little time jump since the end of Season 2,” Butterfield said. “Otis has gone back to school but has different things to do. He grew up a bit and got a bit more daring. It was fun to illustrate his new charisma. Don’t worry, though, he’s also tragically awkward. “
Regarding Otis’ relationship with Maeve (Emma Mackey), Butterfield added:
“Their relationship continues to develop in the third season. We also explore why Otis ran his sex therapy clinic initially – was it just to be close to Maeve or did he feel fulfilled helping people? “
Meanwhile, Adam is overcoming his insecurities to publicly state his feelings for Eric, so we’ll no doubt see how their relationship develops in Season 3. Meanwhile, Otis tries to do the same, leaving Maeve a voicemail for her. ‘apologize for his behavior and tell him that he loves him. However, Maeve’s friend Isaac (George Robinson) erases the message and sends Otis away when he comes to see her. Will Maeve find out what he’s feeling? Elsewhere in the Season 2 finale, Maeve finds out that her mother (Anne-Marie Duff) is on drugs again and calls social services. The authorities take her little sister away, leaving Maeve alone again, which will certainly have emotional repercussions that can be explored in Season 3.
