Sex Education season 3 is on its way to Netflix after months of delays, but when will the release date be and who is in the cast?
A release date for Sex Education season 3 has finally been confirmed by Netflix after moths of delays, and the trailer is also finally here!
After a dramatic set of episodes in the previous series, we've been left wondering what's next for the pupils of Moordale High – here's everything you need to know about series three of Sex Education, including release date, cast and more...
The trailer for the new series of Sex Education is finally here and Otis has a moustache, Maeve's got new hair and Moordale has a brand new head teacher.
Adam and Eric's relationship is also blossoming!
The release date of Sex Education season 3 is 17 September 2021.
Netflix confirmed in September 2020 production for the new series had finally begun and wrapped in Wales earlier this year.
The first series of Sex Education dropped in January 2019, with the second dropping exactly a year later on 17 January 2020.
Asa Butterfield seemed to hint the new series was on its way to fans when he tweeted on 8 June: "Lemme just say, you lot aren’t ready for season 3, trust me."
Oh, we definitely are.
There isn’t yet any confirmation about who will be in the cast of Sex Education series 3, but the cast between series one and two remained the same with a few new additions, so we know the original characters Otis, Maeve, Eric and Jean – played by Asa Butterfield, Emma Mackey, Ncuti Gatwa, and Gillian Anderson respectively – will return for season three.
Aimee (Aimee Lou Wood), Jackson (Kedar Williams-Stirling), and Adam (Connor Swindells) will also likely return after having a key role since the start of the show.
Ending on an embarrassing low for Otis, season two saw the star of the show make a cringe-worthy speech at a party where he slated both ex-girlfriend Ola (Patricia Allison) and close friend Maeve, before drunkenly sleeping with and losing his virginity to Ruby – which he doesn’t remember the full antics of the next day.
Otis later rings Maeve to apologise, leaving a heartfelt voicemail which is then deleted by her new pal Isaac.
Meanwhile, Eric and Adam finally make their feelings about one another official by starting a relationship.
Otis’ mother Jean also finds out she’s pregnant with Jakob’s baby – after dumping him for her ex husband.
