Netflix is known for making some engaging, entertaining, and downright amazing original content, and one of their best series has to be Sex Education. The comedy-drama, which straddles the line between being extremely American and incredibly British at the same time, is refreshingly honest, informative, and just an all-around great show. Season 2 ended with a major cliffhanger in terms of the relationship between Otis and Maeve, and thankfully we’ll have a chance to see what happens since Netflix just confirmed that Season 3 is on the way!

- Series creator Laurie Nunn always believed in the show. The future of Sex Education was previously up in the air and it was unclear whether there would ever be a Season 3. However, Nunn has been enthusiastic about the show and its characters, telling The Hollywood Reporter earlier this year that she believes the show has at least a few more seasons in it if Netflix wants them. “I think I could do some more with them if we’re given the chance,” she said. “[Netflix] is very supportive and really wanting us to tell the stories that we feel passionate about. It really feels like we’re all on the same page, wanting to make the same show.”
- Hopefully everyone will return. Sex Education has such a great cast of characters that it’s hard to imagine Season 3 without all of them on board. So far, we haven’t heard any confirmation from any of the cast members besides Gillian Anderson, who tweeted a characteristically, erm, exuberant photo of herself confirming the new episodes that was later retweeted by the @NetflixUK account.
- We can definitely count on the show to stay on the cutting edge. One of the great things about Sex Education is that it covers literally every single issue surrounding sexuality that you could think of, even the smallest things that you would assume no one else has gone through. So far, they’ve covered everything from masturbation shame to vulvodynia to the morning after pill and more. In other words, the show isn’t afraid to talk about real-life issues affecting teens and adults, and it’s incredibly refreshing. Bring on Season 3!
- No word on when the new season will premiere, but keep your eyes peeled. Hopefully Netflix gives us a ballpark figure of when we can expect Season 3, but in the meantime, at least we know it’s coming!
