Season 2 followed Otis through his first relationship with Ola, which began at the tail end of last season, and the many hiccups and speedbumps that come along with your very first girlfriend.
Sex Education stars Hugo and Ender’s Game actor Asa Butterfield as Otis, X-Files actress Gillian Anderson as his mother Jean, Emma Mackey as Maeve, Patricia Allison as Ola and Ncuti Gatwa as Eric.
No word yet on when the new season will debut.
