‘Sex Education’ Season 2 Sets January Premiere Date at Netflix

A follow-up course in Sex Education has been added to Netflix’s winter curriculum: The streamer announced Monday that Season 2 of the acclaimed British comedy will drop all eight episodes on Friday, Jan. 17.

Netflix unveiled the premiere date along with the following mural, which features the show’s main characters: Otis (played by Asa Butterfield), Eric (Ncuti Gatwa), Maeve (Emma Mackey), Jackson (Kedar Williams-Stirling), Aimee (Aimee Lou Wood), Adam (Connor Swindells), Ola (Patricia Allison) and Lily (Tanya Reynolds).

Sex Education follows the aforementioned Otis, a socially awkward high schooler who lives with his sex therapist mother, Jean (Gillian Anderson). In Season 1, Otis and his friend Maeve set up a sex clinic at school to capitalize on his intuitive talent for sex advice.

When we pick up in Season 2, “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,” according to the official logline. “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.”

Gillian Anderson and Asa Butterfield are back in first ‘Sex Education’ season 2 photos

Ready to head back to school?

The first photos from season 2 of Netflix’s comedy Sex Education are here — and, of course, Gillian Anderson’s Jean is looking as impeccable as always. Season 1 of the series saw socially-awkward high schooler Otis (Asa Butterfield) contend with puberty, crushes, and a sex therapist (and slightly intrusive) mother (Anderson), while also endeavoring to advise his fellow students on all things sex with the help of new friend Maeve (Emma Mackey).

When the show returns for its second season, Otis finds himself having to master his own newly-discovered sexual urges while he tries to make things work with his girlfriend Ola (Patricia Allison) and maintain an even relationship with Maeve (Mackey). Elsewhere, Otis’ bestie Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) notices his recent burst of self-confidence is attracting unfamiliar kinds of attention and things get complicated for Jean when her relationship with hot handyman Jakob (Mikael Persbrandt) is discovered and they have to figure out how to make things work with their kids (Otis and Ola) also dating.

‘Sex Education’ Renewed for Season 2 at Netflix

Good news! The somewhat confusing British school with an American vibe & 70’s fashion aside, I actually quite enjoyed this series, so I’m happy to see it return for another season!

Netflix is bringing back awkward comedy series “Sex Education” starring Gillian Anderson and Asa Butterfield for a sophomore season.

The streamer announced the season 2 renewal Friday, with production on the eight-episode season slated to begin this spring in the U.K. According to Netflix, the series is among its most popular recent originals — on track to be viewed by more 40 million members worldwide within the first four weeks of season one’s Jan. 11 release.

“Sex Education” centers on 16-year-old Otis Milburn (Butterfield), an inexperienced, socially awkward high-school student who lives with his sex-therapist mother (Anderson). Otis is a reluctant expert on sex but comes to realize he can use his knowledge to gain status at Moordale High School, teaming up with bad-girl Maeve (Emma Mackey) to set up an underground sex-therapy clinic for fellow students.

In addition to Anderson, Butterfield an Mackey, “Sex Education” stars Ncuti Gatwa, Aimee-Lou Wood, Connor Swindells, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Tanya Reynolds, Patricia Allison and Alistair Petrie, who are set to reprise their roles. Creator Laurie Nunn will return for season 2 and executive producer with Jamie Campbell set to executive produce alongside Nunn. The U.K.’s Eleven will continue as the production company for the second season of the breakout series.

“The reception to season one has been so exciting,” Nunn said in a statement. “Seeing how people across the world have connected to characters that began as ideas in my head is incredible. 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.”

“Laurie Nunn has captured the awkward teenage experience with a lot of heart and humor in Sex Education,” said Cindy Holland, Netflix’s VP of original content. “Along with the Eleven team and executive producer and director Ben Taylor, she’s created a universally relatable series that has resonated with our members around the world.”

“Sex Education” season one was created and written by Nunn and executive-produced by Eleven’s Jamie Campbell and Ben Taylor, and co-executive produced by Sian Robins-Grace. Taylor also served as a director on season one along with Kate Herron.
