Sex Education season 3 was a long time coming. The difference between the first two seasons was only one year, meaning the third was probably because of this past January. However, as with everything, the Netflix series has been hampered by the ongoing pandemic — but production now continues.
While we wait patiently for Sex Education season 3, there a fair amount of news out there to digest, including casting statements, behind-the-scenes photos, and some hints about what we could anticipate, as shown by Asa Butterfield, that plays Otis. Here’s what we know so far about Sex Education season, including our very best guesses at when we can anticipate a trailer and a launch date.
Sex Education Season 3 Release Date:
The first two seasons because of this series were released in the first half of 2019, and 2020 respectively. The makers have similarly planned the 3rd Season. Season 3 was expected to launch in early 2021 but the pre-production got delayed as a result of this COVID outbreak.
The makers have said that the shooting is not yet been launched for the episodes and then post-production is demanded. Thus, we can expect the release of season 3 at the end of 2021 or early 2022.

Sex Education season 3 plot
As far as confirmed plot details go, we don’t have much so far, but Asa Butterfield (who plays Otis) gave us the very first hints of what we could expect from Sex Education season 3 in an interview with The Guardian.
“There’s a bit of a time-jump because the season two cliffhanger,” Butterfield said. “Otis is back at college but he has different things on his plate. He’s grown up a bit and become slightly more sassy. It’s been fun to portray his newfound charm. Don’t worry, though, he is still tragically awkward also.”
On Otis’ will-they-won’t-they relationship with Maeve (Emma Mackey), Butterfield added: “Their relationship continues to grow in season three. We also explore why Otis was conducting his sex treatment clinic in the first place. Can it be just to be close to Maeve or does he gain satisfaction from helping people?”
The new cast announcements also give us a small insight into what might happen in Sex Education season 3 — for instance, we know that there’s a new headteacher in the city, in the shape of recently throwing Jemima Kirke, so we can guess that there will be a few adjustments in Moordale High.
Additionally, there are several loose ends at the end of season 2 to tie up, therefore we can hazard a guess at what’s to come. For one thing, Jean finds out she is pregnant at the season finale — following her relationship with Jakob (Mikael Persbrandt) has broken down. Additionally, Jean and Otis aren’t talking to each other after she learned about the gender advice clinic that he had been running at college, therefore Otis has yet to learn.
Meanwhile, Adam simplifies his insecurities to publicly declare his feelings for Eric, so we’ll undoubtedly get to see how their relationship develops in season 3. Meanwhile, Otis attempts to do exactly the identical thing, leaving Maeve a voicemail apologizing for his behavior and telling her that he loves her. However, Maeve’s buddy Isaac (George Robinson) deletes the message and sends Otis off in regards to see her — will Maeve ever learn how he feels?
Elsewhere in the season two finale, Maeve finds out that her mum (Anne-Marie Duff) is using drugs and calls social networking on her behalf. The authorities take away her little sister, leaving Maeve on her again, which can be bound to have psychological repercussions which can be researched in season 3.
