Creator Laurie Nunn has already started writing Sex Education season 3, ahead of season 2 release date.

Season Education season 2 is just about to drop on Netflix and the new season is already promising some brand new relationships, brand new drama and a whole host of new sexual advice inquiries.

But even though the new season hasn't been released yet, fans and even the creator of the series, Laurie Nunn, are already looking ahead to season 3.

Now, before we get into it, Sex Education season 3 hasn't been confirmed at Netflix just yet. But, thanks to the popularity of the series, it's likely that we will be returning to Moordale for another year. Speaking to LadBible, Nunn even went as far as to reveal that she's already "started writing series three."

Uhhh, is that good news or what?!

Writing the next season, regardless of the status of the shows renewal, is standard practice, which Nunn went on to explain: "That's just a very normal part of the process because we work on such tight schedule, and season three hasn't been green lit yet or officially commissioned."

Nunn also revealed that she hopes the show can continue beyond that potential third season: "I love writing these characters," she said. "It's such a big ensemble and I think the theme of the show - in terms of it being about sex and relationships - it really just offers up endless story opportunities."

"So I think the show definitely has legs if Netflix are nice enough to let me keep writing it and let Ben [Taylor] keep directing it!"

Meanwhile, speaking to PopBuzz on the red carpet at the Sex Education premiere in London, Nunn revealed that she kind of knows when the series might end.

When pressed about what we could expect in a potential third season, Laurie explained that she's "percolating ideas" and "thinking about where I can take these characters next." But the creator also revealed that the series has a definite end date, which will likely happen when we have to send our fave characters off to university.

"I always feel that teen shows should maybe stop before university. Otherwise, you get the point where people are 30-years-old and they're playing teenagers," she told us.

With the students of Moordale fast approaching the end of high school, here's hoping Laurie can deliver on a few more seasons.
