Sneak Peek of Season 1 and Season 2
In the first season, the story revolves around Otis Milburn, who is an insecure teenager. He studies at Moordale Secondary School. His mother is a Sex therapist and, on a contrary note, is very frank about all aspects of sexuality. But on the other hand, Otis has mixed feelings or contradictory ideas about sex due to his mother’s profession. After getting bullied at school due to his sexual performance anxiety, he thought to set up a sex-advised business with his troubled classmate named Maeve, which will lead to help their classmates to deal with their individual sexual problems.
In the second season, Otis was in a relationship with Ola. After being in the relationship, he actually faced reality and the pressure of high school romance. Further, the romance was tested by new classmates, who challenges various existing affairs like social-political issues at Moordale and chlamydia outbreaks that cause difficulties with tropical issues.
We have already come to know previously prior to its official announcement that there will be a renewal of the Sex Education series but now we can confirm that Netflix is all set and has renewed the series for its third instalment.
All thanks to Production Weekly, we have learned that the third season of Sex Education is reported that it originally began its filming in the month of May 2020 and ended in the month of September 2020. But it did not happen as we will get into it in just a second.
Further, the creator Laure Dunn has added the Sex Education has already confirmed that she is writing for the third season.
Dunn originally confirmed that she began writing for the third season regardless of the series renewal status:
“That’s just a very normal part of the process because we work on such a tight schedule, and season 3 hasn’t been greenlit yet or officially commissioned.”
After some rescheduling due to Covid-19, Netflix has officially confirmed that the Sex Education Season 3 has begun its production. The revelation of the script of the first episode is for sure will excite the fans, and hopefully, we’ll see some photos on set soon.
The UK & Ireland Twitter of Netflix has also revealed its own beginning productions for Sex Education.
At the beginning of December, Netflix UK’s Twitter account has dropped some behind-the-scenes photos of life on set for the cast of Sex Education.
Netflix dropped even more images for us to speculate on what’s happening in the third season!
The fans are very much thirsty regarding season 3 of sex education. In the teaser trailer of season 3, Alistair Petrie- principal Groff narrating playfully. It is almost like season 2, where Gillian Anderson gave a sultry speech about sex education. In the teaser, the principal was walking to the halls of Moordale High School.
Some passing portraits of the main cast of sex education have also been noticed. It seems that they all will be present in season 3. The teaser of season 3 closed with a welcome note in search of more sex education season 3.
Trailer and its Synopsis
In the month of July, Netflix has released the teaser of Sex Education Season 3, which gave us a glimpse of the new Moordale and student body. But finally, after a long wait, today on 7th September 2021 Netflix has officially released its trailer.
The new principal of the Moordale High School is Hope Haddon aims to fix the school’s reputation after it has been dubbed as the “sex school”. Hope has said in her welcome speech that “Seems that there are students here who get a kick out of giving us a bad name. It changes today.” In the trailer, it was further followed by a short glimpse of a complete makeover of Moordale. It has also shown us that Otis, Maeve, Eric, Aimee, Adam, and the rest of the Moordale is experiencing growth while they are getting used to the school’s new system. On top of Moordale’s transition, it was also seen that Otis is also exploring his sexuality, while Eric and Adam are planning to take their relationship to the next level. However still now by seeing the trailer we have not found the answer that whether Otis and Maeve will end up together? As the saying goes, the third time’s the charm.
Here we present the trailer:-
Expectations from the season
The creator and writer of the web series Laurie Nunn said in an interview that they have a very tight schedule regarding the shoot and production of the series. They are taking a bit longer, but they will be back stronger. She also says that she loves writing and playing with the characters.
She thought that the theme of the series is wonderful and practical, which will reach all generations of people, especially teens, and the theme is based on sex and relationship. With this, she can offer an endless story opportunity to please and mesmerize the audience.
In season 3, there is a prediction that Otis will profer his love for Maeve again- this time in person at the beginning of the third season. We also want them to get together in the new episodes.
Though there are not too many spoilers but Asa Butterfield, who plays Otis, reveals a huge plot point while speaking to The Guardian. He said that season 3 would start after a time jump. He shared, “There’s a bit of time jump since the season two cliffhanger. Otis is back at school, but he’s got different things on his plate. He’s grown up a bit and become slightly sassier. It’s been fun to portray his newfound charisma. Don’t worry, though, he’s still tragically awkward too.”
There are many more exciting and new plots and new attractions and expecting to come in this new season. Along with this Netflix series, many more series will have their new season coming in this year.
