Everything we know about season two of Netflix’s Sex Education
Firstly, we need it
This year, Netflix blessed us with one of the best British comedy series' we've seen in a while, in the form of Sex Education. It's unapologetic diversity, simple and natural humour and all round relatable insights into the reality of being a teenager, has left us desperate for a second series.
The show follows a bunch of 16-year-old sixth formers who are all either trying to figure out how to have sex, or how to have better sex. The son of a sex therapist teams up with his edgier and cooler classmate (played by Emma Mackey) to set up their own sex clinic, and earn some cash. Rather than tying up all the loose ends, episode eight leaves you with more questions than answers. Without any spoilers, there are relationships and plot lines that are just beginning – so this can't possibly be the end.
So, is there going to be a second series? Here is everything we know.
Will there be a second season of Sex Education on Netflix?
It is currently unconfirmed that there will be a second series, but judging by the end of series one, it can't be over. Creator of the series, Laurie Nunn, has basically confirmed it's just a matter of time before we know it's happening though.
She told Thrillist: "We have started working on it, but we will not find out obviously whether we will get another series for another couple of months. It's all up in the air. We definitely started thinking about it. So we have some ideas which is exciting."
When will the second season be released?
This is another detail that hasn't been confirmed. But, Netflix does seem to follow a similar pattern when scheduling its shows. If Sex Education follows the usual time frames, a new season could be expected early in 2020!!!
Which cast members will be returning?
If there is a season two, it looks like a lot of our fav cast members from season one would return. Laurie Nunn told Thrillist: "I'm just totally in love with all the characters and I just want to spend more time with them. Series one is very much Otis' journey and I think he will again, if we're lucky enough to get a series two we will always come back to Otis. He's a fantastic leading character but the fact that we've got this great ensemble and these amazing young actors who have also just brought so much to those characters. It just feels like they could go anywhere."
What could the plot be like?
Laurie Nunn hinted there is space for lots of new relationships, should there be a second series. She said: "I love the idea of getting different characters together. If not together in a relationship, just together in the space."
Emma Mackey, who plays Maeve Wiley in the show, told Teen Vogue she would like to explore character relationships more, if there was a new season. She said: "I hope if there is a Season 2 that Maeve and Aimee have a lot more time together, that their friendship comes to the forefront and centre stage because I think there’s something really beautiful there… A focus on female friendships would be amazing."
If the show picks up where it left off it means we could expect a lot more from Otis and Ola, and we would find out what happens to Adam – who is dating Aimee IRL btw!!!
