It’s almost four months since Netflix announced the renewal of ‘Sex Education’ for a third season. It was not a surprise that we were caught by surprise given the great popularity of the series created by Laurie Nunn, but it never hurts to have confirmation from the platform.
Below we will review everything you know about the third season, from its history to its distribution, also going through how it has been affected by the coronavirus.
This third season will have to solve all the loose ends left at the end of the second, but the most important is undoubtedly Isaac’s decision to eliminate the voice message with which Otis expressed his feelings towards Maeve.
Of course, Maeve is sure that she is very busy thinking about her decision to report her mother to social services. For his part, Eric finally decides on Adam, who maintains his particular path to become a better person, something that cannot be said about his father.
Also, Aimee seems to be gradually overcoming her traumatic experience on the bus, while Jackson seems to have found his place in life as a teenager after leaving swimming. And we will have to see how the relationship between Ola and Lily evolves.
Let’s not forget either that Jean has found out that she is pregnant with Jakob, Their relationship seemed doomed to failure because of her inability to commit, but this will certainly complicate everything further.
The return of the characters of Otis (Asa Butterfield), Jean (Gillian Anderson), Eric (Ncuti Gatwa), Maeve (Emma Mackey), Aimee (Aimee Lou Wood), Adam (Connor Swindells), Jackson (Kedar Williams- Stirling), Ola (Patricia Allison), Lily (Tanya Reynolds), director Groff (Alistair Petrie), Olivia (Simone Ashley), Ruby (Mimi Keene), Anwar (Chaneil Kular), Steve (Chris Jenks), Miss Sands ( Rakhee Thakrar), Mr Hendricks (Jim Howick), Jakob (Mikael Persbrandt), Maureen (Samantha Spiro), Sofia (Hannah Waddingham), Roz (Sharon Duncan-Brewster) and Remi (James Purefoy).
There are also the return of the three great signings of the second season: Rahim (Sami Outalbali), Viv (Chinenye Ezeudu) and Isaac (George Robinson). The possible return of Anne-Marie Duff as Maeve’s mother is up in the air, but if it occurs it seems likely that they would surprise him.
Filming for the third season was scheduled to start this May in Wales, but Netflix has decided to cancel the start of the recordings as a precautionary measure due to the coronavirus crisis. At the moment it is unknown when they will resume.
Obviously, we are without a trailer since we have not started the recordings, but we do have the nice teaser with which Netflix announced the renewal of the series for a third season and that you have below:
