Sex Education is possibly the only TV show focusing on teenagers and having a pretty accurate portrayal of them. Add that with an incredible cast, intriguing story lines and brilliant writing to get the perfect show. Sex Education, starring Asa Butterfield and Gillian Anderson, tackles difficult topics such as racism, homophobia, abortion, sexism and well gives enlightening new advice for any teenager wondering about the experience of sexual intercourse. Since Sex Education season 1 went so great, everyone is desperately to hear any news about it’s second installment. So, here’s everything we know about it!
Sex Education Season 2 Release Date
There are no official news on whether another season was picked up by Netflix or any other TV network as of yet. But one of their genius writers Laurie Nunn has given us the good news. She’s stated that they are working on it!
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.
But we reckon that we’ll hear something official by the end of March!
Cast and Plot line of Sex Education Season 2
We obviously can expect the main duo of the series to be there. Asa Butterfield as Otis, and his sex therapist mother Gillian Anderson will be coming back on the show. They both made up after a messy fight in season 1’s finale. Therefore, we can hopefully see their dynamic change for the better in the Sex Education Season 2.
We’ll obviously be hoping to see other cast members such as the brilliantly wise feminist and businesswoman Maeve Riley played by Emma Mackey. She was about to confess to Otis about her true feelings after she broke up with Jackson who’s played by Kedar Williams-Stirling. But since Otis was seen kissing Ola (Patricia Allison), she stopped. That was certainly a bittersweet moment for the audience.
But it’s obvious that we will see more of Otis and Ola’s relationship in the next season. Maybe, Jackson and Maeve will get back together. However, many fans are still not letting go of shipping Otis and Maeve who seemed perfect for each other. Let’s see what comes of this elaborate love triangle.
Another thing we saw was Aimee-Lou Wood who plays Aimee finally depart her Mean Girls group and be openly friends with pal Maeve. Aimee was a wonderful character on the show but we didn’t see enough of her! We’d want to see more of her in the next season.
Eric and Adam Story Line Needs More Attention!
However, the most pleasantly surprising moment was when we saw Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) have a sexual encounter with his on-screen bully Adam Groff (Connor Swindells). We didn’t even know we shipped these two until the show lured us into it! However, fans would be wanting to see more of them in Sex Education season 2 as well. It’s a bit tricky since Adam was forced to leave for military school by his father. The heartbreaking last glance he and Eric share will have you reaching for those tissues! What does it mean for Eric and Adam!
Perhaps Adam and Eric would somehow find a way to be together? Maybe Adam leaves the military school and goes off on his own. It would be interesting to explore how a bully becomes your lover. Moreover, although the TV show did have same-sex couples on the show, it didn’t give us an in-depth view on it. The homophobia Eric faces is something the show perfectly tackled, showcasing just how difficult it is to be a member of the LGBTQ+ community. But there is much more to be explored here.
Harassment and bullying can be detrimental for mental health of LGBTQ teenagers. Hopefully, by giving these issues attention, Sex Education can hope to raise more awareness like this blog does.
Season 1 of Sex Education is available on Netflix.
