Netflix’s raunchy hit, Sex Education, is coming back for a second season on Netflix. The U.K. dramedy will be renewed for more eight episodes, with production beginning sometime in the spring. Netflix had also recently revealed that 40 million households had tuned in to Sex Education within its first four weeks of release. Even though that’s not a telling how many of those 40 million households completed, but it’s still a fairly large number. You can check out the release video below.
Sex Education follows the life of 16-year-old Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfield), an inexperienced, socially awkward high-school student whose mother is a sex-therapist (Gillian Anderson). Otis soon realizes he is some sort of an expert on sex advice. His best friend Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) comes to realize that Otis can use this knowledge to gain status at their high school. Otis also teams up outcast Maeve (Emma Mackey) to set up an underground sex-therapy clinic for their fellow peers.
“Laurie Nunn has captured the awkward teenage experience with a lot of heart and humor in Sex Education,” said Cindy Holland, the vice president of originals at Netflix. “Along with the Eleven team and executive producer and director Ben Taylor, she’s created a universally relatable series that has resonated with our members around the world.”
Creator of the series, Laurie Nunn, also shared, “The reception to season one has been so exciting. Seeing how people across the world have connected to characters that began as ideas in my head is incredible. I’m hugely grateful to every person that has taken the time to watch the series, and I can’t wait to continue this amazing journey.”
You can stream season one of Sex Education now, on Netflix.
