Sex Education is a British teen comedy-drama series created by Laurie Nunn, its first season premiered on 11 January 2019. The good news is that Netflix announced a second round back on February 1. “The reception to season 1 has been so exciting. Seeing how people across the world have connected to characters that began as ideas in my head is incredible,” series creator Laurie Nunn said in a press release. “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.” Netflix has confirmed that season 2 will be released in 2020 with eight new episodes.
The show follows awkward teenager Otis (Asa Butterfield), who discovers he has a talent for solving his classmates’ sexual problems. Capitalizing on his newly realized skill set, he and school bad girl Maeve (Emma Mackey) set up an underground sex clinic to help their peers and earn a bit of cash. Sex-positive and heart-warming, Sex Education sensitively tackles storylines like abortion, revenge porn and coming out, resulting in an intelligent – and laugh-out-loud – comedy.
We’ve got some plot points! Here’s what Netflix just released about season 2, “As a late bloomer, Otis must master his newly discovered sexual urges in order to progress with his girlfriend Ola whilst also dealing with his now strained relationship with Maeve. Meanwhile, Moordale Secondary is in the throes of a chlamydia outbreak, highlighting the need for better sex education at the school, and new kids come to town who will challenge the status quo.”
“Maeve and Aimee’s BFF relationship is stronger than ever since Aimee ditched ‘the Untouchables. Eric notices his new-found self-confidence attracting unfamiliar kinds of attention. Adam is at military school, still conflicted by his feelings for Eric. Lily has hit pause on her sexual endeavors to focus on her creative talents and finds a newfound friend in Ola.”
“Jackson is forced to flex his mental rather than physical muscle and is still buckling under the pressure from his parents to succeed. Jean and Jakob’s relationship is discovered and they have to learn how to operate as a blended family. Jean forms an unlikely connection with Mrs. Groff and friendship between the two women begins to form.”
Star Emma Mackey said: “For Kedar [Williams-Stirling] and my sex scenes, we had literal choreography. We timed it. You do this for seven seconds. You do this…’ So it was like a dance. It’s really interesting to have it like that. It just automatically debunks… It gets rid of all the fear. So it was great.”
Co-star Aimee-Lou Wood added: “It actually makes it easier, rather than worrying like, ‘Does this look real?’ It’s been confirmed by someone that, ‘This works. We’ll do it fully clothed. Let’s rehearse it fully clothed a few times, go through it, eight thrusts, do this, do that…’ And then all that fear goes away. And then it’s really fun, actually.”
