Netflix’s Sex Education renewed for a second season

Netflix has renewed their hit series Sex Education for an eight-episode second season. The streamer estimated that over 40 million households watched the first season within the first four weeks of its debut.

The first season garnered critical and popular acclaim and has opened up poignant cultural conversations around sexuality, relationships, and identity. The series has been lauded for delivering a coming-of-age story with a fresh, feminist heart, and for presenting intersectional and multidimensional characters that audiences have fallen in love with.

Series creator Laurie Nunn said, “The reception to season one has been so exciting. 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,” added Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content, Netflix. “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.”

Season 2 is slated to begin production this spring in the UK. Gillian Anderson, Asa Butterfield, Emma Mackey, Ncuti Gatwa, Aimee-Lou Wood, Connor Swindells, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Tanya Reynolds, Patricia Allison, and Alistair Petrie are set to reprise their roles. Creator Laurie Nunn will return as creator and executive producer with Jamie Campbell set to executive produce alongside Nunn. Eleven will continue as the production company for the second season of the breakout series.

Meet Otis Thompson — a socially awkward high school virgin who lives with his mother, a sex therapist. Surrounded by manuals, videos and tediously open conversations about sex, Otis is a reluctant expert on the subject. When his home life is revealed at school, Otis realizes that he can use his specialist knowledge to gain status. He teams up with Maeve, a whip-smart bad-girl, and together they set up an underground sex therapy clinic to deal with their fellow students’ weird and wonderful problems. Through his analysis of teenage sexuality, Otis realizes he may need some therapy of his own.

Sex Education Season 1 was created and written by Laurie Nunn and executive-produced by 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. The series is a production of Eleven.
