Sex Education enthusiasts, gather around because we finally have news on season three! Intrigued? Well, here’s a sneak peek of Season 3 below:

Remember how Season 2 left us in disappointment after George Robinson who plays Isaac (the lad in the wheelchair) ultimately erased Otis’ voicemail message to Maeve Wiley and ruined a would-be good ending to the story of season two as Otis had confessed his love for her on it. This actually left many Sex Education fans and viewers worldwide agitated and wishing season 3’s opening scene would kick off with Isaac’s wheelchair being burnt or something… 💀😂🤦‍♂️

Netflix first announced the beloved British series had been renewed for a third season in February 2020, just a month after its sophomore season premiered globally. Production for the new season was meant to start in May 2020 but, like many Netflix productions across the world, it was delayed in April 2020 in light of the coronavirus pandemic. Filming finally resumed in September 2020 and, nine months later, we finally have a release date.

On June 24, the streaming giant announced season three of Sex Education will premiere on Friday, September 17, 2021. Much like the two previous seasons, we will also be getting eight brand new episodes this time.

Aside from the official launch date announcement, Netflix has also given a peek of what’s to come with six new teaser pictures – and it looks like Moordale High will be seeing quite a few changes when class is back in session. The new pictures show the students clad in Moordale High uniforms, probably courtesy of one of the new characters that Netflix unveiled last September:

Here’s the log line for the junior season of Sex Education: In the upcoming installments, It’s a new year, Otis (Asa Butterfield) is having casual sex, Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) and Adam (Connor Swindells) have made their relationship official (!) and Jean (Gillian Anderson) has a baby on the way. Meanwhile, new headteacher Hope (played by Girls‘ Jemima Kirke) tries to return Moordale to the pillar of excellence it’s always been — which, judging from the new episodic photos below, means spiffy new uniforms, at the very least.

(That “lost voicemail” refers to the message Otis left Maeve at the end of Season 2, finally telling her he loved her, which was ultimately deleted by Maeve’s neighbor Isaac without her knowledge. Gah!)

In addition to Kirke, Sex Education‘s new cast additions include Jason Isaacs (Star Trek: Discovery) as Peter Groff, Mr. Groff’s more successful and not-very-modest older brother; recording artist Dua Saleh, making their acting debut as Cal, a nonbinary Moordale student who instantly clashes with Hope’s new vision for the school; and Indra Ové (Breeders) as Anna, foster mother to Maeve’s half-sister, Elsie.
