Season 2 of Sex Education is nearly upon us.

George Robinson, Sami Outalbali and Chinenye Ezeudu have joined the cast of Sex Education as Isaac, Rahim and Viv, respectively.

When we last left Otis (Asa Butterfield), our protagonist was getting closer to his crush, Ola (Patricia Allison). And, his relationship with Maeve (Emma Mackey) was about to get a whole lot more complicated. When we rejoin the kids in season 2, Moordale is "in the throes of a Chlamydia outbreak" and Otis is learning to face his newfound sexual urges head-on.

As for the new kids on the block – Isaac, Rahim and Viv – they've seemingly got their own fair share of drama to contend with once the show picks back up for season 2. While we don't have full character breakdowns, new descriptions of Isaac, Rahim and Viv hint at exciting things to come.

Sami Outalbali plays Rahim

Rahim is described as "a French student who turns heads when he joins Moordale Secondary". Sami Outalbali is a French actor known for roles in Grown-Ups, Vive la Colo and Lola.
