Great news for fans of the Netflix series Sex Education! The series will be returning on the streaming service for a second season!
The series, which racked up over 40 million household views within its first 4 weeks, follows a young teen named Otis Milburn (played by Asa Butterfield) who lives with his mother (Gillian Anderson), a sex therapist. The series also stars Emma Mackey, Ncuti Gatwa, Aimee-Lou Wood, Connor Swindells, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Tanya Reynolds and Patricia Allison.
The official synopsis says, “Meet Otis Milburn – an inexperienced, socially awkward high school student who lives with his mother, a sex therapist. Surrounded by manuals, videos and tediously open conversations about sex, Otis is a reluctant expert on the subject. When his home life is revealed at school, Otis realizes that he can use his specialist knowledge to gain status. He teams up with Maeve, a whip-smart bad-girl, and together they set up an underground sex therapy clinic to deal with their fellow students’ weird and wonderful problems. Through his analysis of teenage sexuality, Otis realizes he may need some therapy of his own.”
Sex Education will be returning for another 8-episode run and is expected to begin production this spring in the U.K. The original cast is set to reprise their roles for the second season along with Laurie Nunn returning as creator and executive producer, and Jamie Campbell set to executive produce alongside Nunn. Eleven will continue as the production company for the second season of the breakout series.
In a statement, Nunn said, “The reception to season one has been so exciting. Seeing how people across the world have connected to characters that began as ideas in my head is incredible. I’m hugely grateful to every person that has taken the time to watch the series, and I can’t wait to continue this amazing journey.”
