The UK series Sex Education starring Asa Butterfield and Emma Mackey gained a lot of popularity ever since its premiere. The first seasons showed up on Netflix in January. Fortunately, it was renewed for a second season but we do not know the details as of yet. But that doesn’t mean we cannot speculate on Sex Education season 2 release date.
Unique Story Coupled With Talented Cast
The story revolves around a group of teenagers in high school trying to figure out love, relationships, and most importantly sex. It’s witty, heartwarming and contains the right amount of emotional depth. It tackles on issues like homophobia, abortion, closeted gays, bullying and generally removes the stigma of discussing sex.
The stellar cast includes Otis (Asa Butterfield) who offers guidance to those dealing with problems regarding sex. Otis was given this business idea by Maeve (Emma Mackey) who becomes his business partner and eventually close friend. The best part about it is that Asa Butterfield’s character is able to offer good advice only because he is the son of a sex therapist, played by the unbelievably talented Gillian Anderson (Jean).
We also have the brilliant Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) who is Otis’ gay best friend. He likes to crossdress and is bullied by Adam (Connor Swindells). Though, we find out that he actually has a crush on him and that leads to an OTP we didn’t know we needed. Seriously, Sex Education season 2 better explore this relationship more.
There’s Maeve’s boyfriend Jackson (Kedar Williams-Stirling) though they break up as Sex Education season 1 came to a close. Maeve was about to confess to Otis but then we see Otis rekindling his flame with Ola (Patricia Allison). Fans were really rooting for Otis and Maeve, even notable celebrities such as Riverdale’s KJ Apa.
Moreover, the creator Laurie Nunn had this to say about the upcoming season:
“I love the idea of getting different characters together – if not together in a relationship, just together in the space. Like, I never thought those two characters would have a conversation and there will be loads of opportunity for that.”
But oh well, something might happen between them on Sex Education season 2?
