“‘There’s a bit of a time-jump since the season two cliffhanger. Otis is back at school but he’s got different things on his plate. He’s grown up a bit and become slightly more sassy. It’s been fun to portray his newfound charisma. Don’t worry, though, he’s still tragically awkward too.’
“On Otis’ will-they-won’t-they relationship with Maeve (Emma Mackey): ‘Their relationship continues to develop in season three. We also explore why Otis was running his sex therapy clinic in the first place. Was it just to be close to Maeve or does he get fulfillment from helping people?'” (Asa Butterfield, The Guardian via Games Radar)
The return of a clever, brilliantly well-written show is always a welcome thing.
Even more so when it’s Sex Education, a series which shown time and again that it can be sassy & funny and serious & introspective without breaking a sweat.
It also benefits from universally nuanced performances, and a willingness ask some reasonably tough questions while being thoroughly entertaining.
There are some interesting cast changes coming up in season 3 including Jemima Kirke as the new school principal as well as some tasty plot developments – see Games Radar again – all of which means we will be glued to our binge-comfy chairs when Sex Education (season 3) premieres on 17 September via Netflix.
