Sex Education season 3 should be on its way this season. We don’t think that anybody is all that amazed to find out that people are excited to keep watching one of those best Netflix displays around, particularly as it could just be the finest Netflix first of all-time.
The series is good for plenty of reasons, but most of those come from the wonderful ensemble cast. The initial premise of Otis giving sex advice at school for money while his mother, Gillian Anderson’s Jean, plied her gender therapist vocation responsibly, has now been left behind. The series is much better than before thanks to the additions of lots of new characters and their particular tastes both in and out of the bedroom.
It was normal that filming for Sex Education season 3 could wind up at the behest of the outbreak, but with filming having resumed back in September last year we’re hopefully looking at a launch in the coming weeks. The great news is that we have got some set photographs below to help make the slow crawl towards more news more bearable.
We are going to be taking you through all you need to learn about string including the throw we know so much, the latest production upgrades, and whether or not the character you personally ship will be doing any sailing together.
Sex Education season 3 release date
Production for Sex Education season 3 began in September 2020 (delayed from April because of, you guessed it, coronavirus), but sadly we don’t have a release date yet. However, we’ve done some calculations to attempt to work out when we might be able to expect it.
Netflix announced that Sex Education had been renewed for season two on February 1, 2019, and the season premiered on January 17, 2020. The statement about season 3 also happened in February 2020 — obviously, a January 2021 release date is not on the cards since filming has been delayed this time around.
If we consider this five-month setback into consideration, we’re potentially looking at Sex Education season 3 dropping in June 2021. As for if we can expect to seek out (if our prediction is correct), season two’s release date has been announced around two weeks before it aired, so keep a lookout at April 2021.
Sex Education season 3 cast: who we expect to reunite
Even though a complete cast list for year three is yet to be confirmed, Netflix announced some exciting new titles to the Sex Education season 3 cast in September. Jason Isaac’s Peter Groff should prove an excellent foil to his headteacher brother, with recording artist Dua Saleh as a returning student who clashes with the new headmistress, Hope, performed by Jemima Kirke (Girls, Tiny Furniture).
Also, we feel quite confident in assuming the characters featured in the teaser movie are coming. Series headliners Asa Butterfield (Otis Milburn) and Gillian Anderson (Dr. Jean Milburn) are featured, along with a sizable chunk of the supporting cast including Emma Mackey (Maeve Wiley), Ncuti Gatwa (Eric Effiong), Connor Swindells (Adam Groff), and Patricia Allison (Ola Nyman). Given how heavily season 2 leaned into an ensemble narrative strategy, it would be difficult to envision the show returning without the bulk of the cast reprising their roles.
And, if you are available for filming at the show’s locations, such as Newport and Cardiff in Wales, you could be at the cast, also. Casting agency Mad Dog is currently looking to get 18-26-year-old extras for Sex Education season 3, as well as singers for a choir.
Sex Education 3 spoilers: What will happen in the next season?
So far, nothing has been confirmed along with the throw are being very tight-lipped about what might potentially happen in the third season.
Season 2 finishes with a lot of things up in the atmosphere. Some storylines are abandoned on big cliffhangersothers leave room for potential play in season 3. Season 2 sets up a lot of narratives that will lend themselves to a very interesting new season.
The two large storylines will revolve around Jean Milburn’s surprise pregnancy along with the voicemail which Otis left on Maeve’s phone, declaring his love. Of course, if you managed to reach the end of the season (if you did not, what are you doing reading this?!), you will understand that Maeve’s neighbor Isaac deleted the message after listening to it.
Asa Butterfield and Ncuti Gatwa both agreed that they’d love to see more of Eric and Otis together. “I want to see more Otis and Eric. I want to see more of Eric’s family. I need Otis to view more of Eric’s family,” said Asa, with Ncuti agreeing: “I wanna visit Otis eating Jollof and seasoned food. I would like to find that [laugh].”
