According to Deadline, the Netflix hit series Sex Education is on track to be back in production by August. Producer company Eleven had their hearts set on August for filming. The show, now being managed by Sony pictures, have confirmed filming will take place in August, following proper safety protocols due to COVID-19.
“It’s all [good] at the moment,” said Sony’s president of international production, Wayne Garvie via Deadline. The British series was originally set to begin filming in May, but was delayed due to COVID-19. Sex Education relies on the long British summer days for their filming, with the sunshine important for the on-screen finish.
Production throughout the industry has been difficult to maneuver with the constant changes and safety updates regarding the virus. “It will be different,” Garvie told Deadline. “The next couple of years will be tricky, there’s going to be a few false starts — productions starting up and then stopping again — it’s going to be a bit messy. But then it will come back.”
Sex Education stars Asa Butterfield (The Boy in the Striped Pajamas) as socially awkward high school student Otis Milburn, who teams up with an unlikely classmate, Maeve Wiley, played by Emma Mackey (Badger Lane) to educate students through their sex clinic. The series also stars Gillian Anderson (The Crown) as Jean Milburn, Ncuti Gatwa (Stonemouth) as Eric Effiong and Connor Swindells (Jamestown) as Adam Groff. The show has 12 various nominations, with Broadcasting Press Guild Award win for Gatwa.
