Season 2 of Netflix hit series Sex Education gets a release date

Starring Asa Butterfield and Gillian Anderson, the Netflix series centers on a socially awkward teenager named Otis (Asa Butterfield) and his sex therapist mother, Dr. Jean F. Milburn (Gillian Anderson). Season 1 followed the story of Otis and his friend Maeve (Emma Mackey) as they set up a sex therapy clinic to help offer up advice to their peers, all while tackling more serious social issues along the way.

The comedy-drama was such a success, hitting over 40 million viewers within the first four weeks of release, that Netflix quickly began production for season 2 earlier this May. Netflix also released a full description of season 2, which explains that in the second season, "Otis must master his newly discovered sexual urges in order to progress with his girlfriend Ola whilst also dealing with his now strained relationship with Maeve." Meanwhile, at Moordale Secondary, the school is "in the throes of a Chlamydia outbreak, highlighting the need for better sex education at the school," and this time around, "new kids come to town who will challenge the status quo."
The upcoming season of the show, written and created by Laurie Nunn, will consist of eight episodes. Newcomers to the cast include Sami Outalbali, George Robinson and Chinenye Ezeudu. Fans will however have to wait longer for the trailer’s release.
