Sex Education is one of the best series on Netflix. Created and written by Laurie Nunn in her first venture into the big leagues (Nunn previously wrote and directed a number of short films), this dramedy follows a bunch of teenagers as they awkwardly navigate through the complicated labyrinth that is high school, discovering themselves and their sexuality along the way.
The characters that fill up the frames are wonderfully fleshed out over the course of eight episodes and embodied by performers whose collective charm brim like a boiling pot of sweet honey milk. At the centre of it is one Ottis Milburn (Asa Butterfield), a shy virgin whose mom is ironically a sex therapist. The dialogues are snappy and humour, quite often witty and dry, as you’d expect from the Brits. But let’s not forget its warmth and constantly beating heart. But it’s also an important show, one that tackles the nuances of relationships, sex, abortion, masturbation and so much more.
The first two seasons of the series is nothing short of excellent. Now, Netflix has renewed the critically acclaimed series for a third season via an announcement video. In the video we follow Headmaster Michael Groff (Alistair Petrie) as he guides us through Moordale High art exhibition before revealing that the third season of Sex Education is coming.
