‘Sex Education’: Season 3 Gets Trailer, Premiering September On Netflix
‘Sex Education’ is back this September with a new headmistress, new uniform and a new attitude – it’s time for change at Moordale Secondary when it reopens its doors this September on Netflix.
The series follows Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfield), a socially awkward high school student who lives with his sex therapist mother, Jean (Gillian Anderson). Season 1 saw Otis and his friend Maeve Wiley (Emma Mackey) set-up a sex clinic at school to capitalise on his intuitive talent for sex advice. Season 2, followed Otis as he tries to master his newly discovered sexual urges in order to progress with his girlfriend Ola whilst also dealing with his now strained relationship with Maeve. Moordale Secondary also found itself in the throes of a chlamydia outbreak, highlighting the need for better sex education at the school, and new kids came to town which challenged the status quo.
As we head into Season 3, it’s a new year. Otis is having casual sex, Eric and Adam are official, and Jean has a baby on the way. Meanwhile, new headteacher Hope (played by Jemima Kirke – ‘Girls’, ‘Maniac’) tries to return Moordale to a pillar of excellence, Aimee discovers feminism, Jackson gets a crush and a lost voicemail still looms. Prepare for commitment animals, alien phenomena, vulva cupcakes and much more of Madam Groff.
Other new cast this season includes the wonderful Jason Isaacs (‘Harry Potter’ films, ‘Star Trek: Discovery’) playing Peter Groff, Mr Groff’s more successful and not very modest older brother; recording artist and songwriter, Dua Saleh who joins in their acting debut, playing Cal, a nonbinary student at Moordale; and Indra Ové (‘Breeders’, ‘Holby City’) who plays Elsie’s foster mum Anna.
