Netflix has shared the release date for the upcoming Sex Education Season 3 of their hit show. The show will bring back the entire main cast.
Season 3 of Sex Education, with its new 8 episodes, sees new faces join the cast, such as Jason Isaacs, who plays the role of Peter, the older brother and who is much more successful in Mr. Groff’s life; singer-songwriter Dua Saleh, who makes her acting debut as Cal, a non-binary student who arrives in Moordale; and Indra Ové, who plays Anna, Elsie’s adoptive mother.
We dug a little deeper and gathered some information: there were some exciting new casting announcements, so we can expect to see new faces in Season 3, and we did our best to guess when we might have a trailer. Asa Butterfield, who plays the role of Otis, also gave some hints about what we can expect from the plot of the new season. But what interests us at first is the date of the broadcast of Sex Education season 3.
Sex Education Season 3 Release Date
Production of Sex Education Season 3 began in September 2020 (it had been delayed from April due to the coronavirus). A busy new year begins in Moordale: Otis is sexually active, Eric and Adam’s relationship is official, and Jean is pregnant. Meanwhile, new principal Hope (played by Jemima Kirke) tries to make the school the pillar of excellence she once was, Aimee discovers feminism, Jackson falls in love, and a missing audio message is brought to light… Sex Education returns with season 3 on September 17, 2021, only on Netflix (“Riverdale Season 6, Money Heist Season 5 & Sex/Life Season 2“).
On the casting side, good news: many familiar faces will be back to pick up where we left off at the end of Season 2. Asa Butterfield will be back as Otis, and Gillian Anderson as her sexologist mother, Jean. Other Moordale students returning are Ncuti Gatwa (Eric, Otis’ best friend), Emma Mackey (Maeve), Aimee Lou Wood (Aimee), Connor Swindells (Adam), Kedar Williams-Stirling (Jackson), Patricia Allison (Ola), and Tanya Reynolds (Lily).
Alistair Petrie will also reprise her role as Adam’s father and former school principal, Mr. Groff. There are also some new faces in the cast. Actress Jemima Kirke will play the role of Hope, Moordale’s new director, while musician Dua Saleh will play non-binary student Cal. Jason Isaacs will play Peter Groff, Groff’s older brother.
What will Sex Education Season 3 be about?
As for the details of the confirmed plot, we don’t have many at the moment, but Asa Butterfield (who plays Otis) gave us the first clues of what we can expect from Sex Education Season 3 in an interview with The Guardian.
“There’s been a little jump in time since the end of Season 2,” Butterfield said. “Otis has gone back to school but he has different things to do. It has grown a little bit and has become a little more daring. It was fun to illustrate his new charisma. But don’t worry, it’s also tragically awkward. »
Regarding Otis’ relationship with Maeve (Emma Mackey), Butterfield added: “Their relationship continues to develop in the third season. We also explore why Otis ran his sex therapy clinic in the first place – was it just to be close to Maeve or is he getting satisfaction in helping people?
Meanwhile, Adam overcomes his insecurities to publicly state his feelings for Eric, so we’ll no doubt see how their relationship develops in Sex Education Season 3. Meanwhile, Otis tries to do the same, leaving Maeve with a voice message to apologize for her behavior and tell her that he loves her. However, Isaac (George Robinson), Maeve’s friend, erases the message and sends Otis back when he comes to see her.
Will Maeve find out how he feels? At the same time in the season 2 finale, Maeve discovers that her mother (Anne-Marie Duff) is taking drugs again and calls social services. The authorities take her little sister, leaving Maeve alone again, which will certainly have emotional repercussions that can be explored in Sex Education Season 3.
