Sex Education Season 3 Release Date
Season 3 of Sex Education will premiere on Netflix on 17th September 2021. Along with the release date, the streamer also revealed official photos from the upcoming season.
Sex Education Season 3 Cast
They show a new Moordale High uniform, with Maeve (Emma Mackey), (Ncuti Gatwa), Otis (Asa Butterfield), Eric the rest of the students dressed in blazers, ties, and plaid skirts for the girls. There’s also a glimpse of the new headmaster, played by Jemima Kirke of Girls, and based on the new uniforms, it appears that there will be a lot of changes in the school halls this season.
The good news is that a slew of familiar names will be returning to pick up where Season 2 left off. Asa Butterfield will reprise his role as Otis, with Gillian Anderson reprising her role as Jean, his sex therapist mother. Ncuti Gatwa as Eric, Otis’ best buddy, Emma Mackey will play the role of Maeve, Aimee Lou Wood will play the role of Aimee, Connor Swindells will play the role of Adam, Kedar Williams-Stirling will play the role of Jackson, Patricia Allison will play the role of Ola, and Tanya Reynolds will play the role of Lily are among the returning Moordale students. Mr. Groff, Adam’s father, and former headmaster will also be played by Alistair Petrie.
There are a few fresh additions to the cast as well. Hope, the new headteacher of Moordale, will be engaged in recreation by Jemima Kirke, whereas artist Dua Saleh will play non-binary pupil Cal. Jason Isaacs, well known for his roles in Harry Potter and Star Trek: Discovery, will play Peter Groff, Mr. Groff’s older brother who is “more successful/less modest.
Sex Education Season 3 Trailer
Finally, a full trailer for Sex Education season 3 has been released. It’s the end of summer, and Moordale students are getting ready to return to school. With Death by White Lies as the soundtrack (hopefully not a portent of things to come), you can get a glimpse of the entire gang; it appears like this season will be more of an ensemble effort than just The Otis Show. It also provides you a better notion of what to expect in terms of plot.
The first trailer was more of an advertisement for the school than a teaser, but it did give us a glimpse of new headmistress Hope, played by Jemima Kirke, and her intentions for Moordale Secondary.
Netflix has released some new stills from the upcoming season, including Otis, who has some dubious facial hair, Maeve, who isn’t impressed, and Adam and Eric, hand in hand.
Sex Education Season 3 Plot
As far as confirmed plot details go, nothing has much so far, but Asa Butterfield (who plays Otis) gave us the first hints of what you can expect from Sex Education season 3 in an interview with The Guardian.
Since the season two cliffhangers, there’s been a bit of a time jump, according to Butterfield. Digitalspy.com revealed, Otis has returned to school, but he has a new set of responsibilities. He’s matured and become a little more sassy. It’s been a lot of fun playing with his newfound charisma. But don’t worry, he’s still terribly awkward.
Butterfield said about Otis’ will-they-won’t-they relationship with Maeve (Emma Mackey): Their relationship continues to deepen in season three. You can also find out why Otis decided to open a sex therapy clinic in the first place.
The new cast announcements also provide some insight into what may occur in Sex Education season 3. For example, everyone knows that a new headteacher has arrived in town in the form of recently cast Jemima Kirke, so it’s safe to assume that things will change at Moordale High.
Lauren Evans, the casting director, spoke with Metro about some of the newcomers to the cast. Jemima Kirke is simply amazing. It’s impossible to say much about her role, but she’s incredibly brilliant and a huge fan of Girls, so having her in the series is a dream come true. She went on to say that Jason Isaacs is basically a person who appears to be Alistair Petrie’s older, more successful brother, which is pretty wonderful. And Dua Saleh has a crucial plot that I believe will resonate with a large number of viewers, and it’s exciting to see them in their first movie role.
Plus, there are a lot of loose ends to tie up from the end of season 2, so it’s a foreshadowing of what’s to come. For one reason, after her relationship with Jakob (Mikael Persbrandt) has already gone down, Jean finds out she’s pregnant in the season finale. Otis hasn’t found out because Jean and Otis haven’t spoken since she found out about the sex counseling clinic he was operating at school.
Eric’s actor, Ncuti Gatwa, has hinted more about the upcoming third season. He claimed he couldn’t talk about it too much. Eric returns to his culture a lot more this season, and he believes those sequences were incredibly wonderful, just being a set with a majority of black people. And it was fantastic and strong, and it reflected Eric’s culture and family. Those are always life-changing experiences.
