In Netflix’s British comedy Sex Education, the lives of the pupils at Moordale Secondary School are interesting. But that’s only half of what makes the streaming service’s blockbuster adolescent series about unlicensed teenage sex therapist named Otis (Asa Butterfield), his classmates, and his genuine sex therapist mother Jean (Golden Globe winner Gillian Anderson) so appealing. The program, created by Laurie Nunn, is not only humorous and extremely wholesome, but it’s also established a loving ensemble of varied characters, each with their own deep tale about adolescence and coming into their own.
Netflix revealed the series was extended for a third season in February 2020, shortly after the second season premiered, implying that more sexual frustrations, experimentation, and learnings are undoubtedly on the way. It’s been a while since new episodes of the program have been released on Netflix, so it’s reasonable to ask when we’ll be able to take a trip to third base with Season 3. We’ve compiled a list of everything we know about Sex Education Season 3 thus far.
Season 3’s eight episodes will be aired on September 17, 2021, according to Netflix.
We were given a cheeky first glimpse – which features some of our favorite characters in uniform, hinting at a significant departure from past seasons – when the news was announced on Twitter.

Netflix released the first Season 3 teaser. However, it is not always a preview of the forthcoming episodes. It’s more of a parody of a private school advertising you would see when channel surfing or during the early local advertisements at a suburban movie theater called the “Official Advert” for Moordale Secondary. In the video, virtually all of your favorite, recognizable people shout, “Choose Moordale!” to prospective students—but, although looking as happy as ever, it appears like they’re coerced into those grins and the campaign. Mrs. Holly Haddon portrayed by Jemima Kirke, who appears to be the new headmistress, appears to be at the heart of it all.
New Cast Members
Jason Isaacs will play Peter Groff, Alistair Petrie’s Headmaster Groff’s “more accomplished and not particularly humble” elder brother. Dua Saleh, a musician, will make her acting debut in the next season as Cal, a nonbinary student fresh to Moordale High. Indra Ové will also appear in the program as Anna, the new foster mother of Maeve’s half-sister Elsie, who was placed in the care of Child Protective Services last season.
Finally, Jemima Kirke will portray Hope, Moordale’s new headmaster who is keen to enhance the school’s academic status. Meanwhile, all of your favorite cast members will return, including Otis, Eric, Jean, Adam (Connor Swindells), Aimee (Aimee-Lou Wood), and Jackson (Kedar Williams-Stirling).

According to Netflix’s summary for the new season, it’s a new era for almost everyone. After losing his virginity last season, Otis is having casual sex; Eric and Adam are officially lovers after two seasons of unresolved sexual tension; Jean is expecting a baby, Aimee discovers feminism, and Jackson has a crush. Oh, and remember that message from Otis that Maeve never got to hear because of a shady Isaac (George Robinson)? That will be a factor.
So we’ll have to wait for Season 3 for the time being. Seasons 1 and 2 are now available on Netflix.
