After binge-watching Sex Education series two, Netflix lovers are eager to know about season three – and when the release date will be.

The Sex Education cast including Emma Mackey, Asa Butterfield, Ncuti Gatwa, and Aimee Lou Wood, returned for a second series of the hit Netflix show on 17 January and it's already been confirmed there will be a season three.

Where Is Sex Education Set & Where Is The Netflix Show Filmed?

After a dramatic set of new episodes, 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...

Will there be Sex Education series three?

Netflix confirmed on 10 February there will be a third instalment of Sex Education by posting a video of Principal Groff posing as an art historian as he discusses each of the character's promotional posters.

After reaching Eric and Adam's picture and pondering, "what is in store for these two cherubs?" he teased: "I guess you'll have to find out in season three, won't you?"

Release date

The first series of Sex Education dropped in January 2019, with the second dropping exactly a year later on 17 January 2020, meaning we can probably guess a third series will hit Netflix in January 2021.

There isn’t yet any confirmation about who will be in future series of Sex Education, but the cast between series one and two remained the same with a few new additions, so we can assume the main characters – played by Asa Butterfield, Emma Mackey, Ncuti Gatwa, and Gillian Anderson – will return for the third season.

Aimee (Aimee Lou Wood), Jackson (Kedar Williams-Stirling), and Adam (Connor Swindells) have also played a key role since the start of the show in 2019.

How did Season 2 of Sex Education end?

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.
