What a great start to 2019 we had with the release of Sex Education. The series having been propelled into the stratosphere of popularity, came as no surprise that it will return for its second season! With subscribers eager to learn more about the next season of Sex Education allow us to help! Here’s everything we know so far for Sex Education season 2!

Sex Education is a Netflix Original comedy-drama created by Laurie Nunn. Upon release Sex Education has been highlighted already as one of the best shows of 2019, not to mention considered to be one of the best Original series Netflix has produced. Through its charm, wit and awkward sexual humor Sex Education found its place in the hearts of many a subscriber. It wasn’t long before Netflix announced the series had been renewed, much to the delight of fans everywhere.

In rural Britain, awkward teenager Otis is a social outcast at school along with his gay friend Eric. Social-standing aside, his life is already made awkward by his inappropriate sex therapist mother Jean. A virgin to boot it’s highly ironic that ‘Bad Girl’ Maeve enlists his help in setting up a much needed sexual health therapy for their school.

What to expect from Sex Education Season 2?

There’s plenty for the writers to work with for season 2, as many plot threads were left open there’s a lot to discuss!


First of all, Otis finally found himself a girlfriend in Ola. In the finale Otis even has his first kiss which led to him getting aroused and masturbating for the first time. The next season will explore Otis’ new relationship and explore his new found sexuality further. As Ola is the first Girlfriend Otis has had we can expect some hilariously awkward moments.

With the success of Otis’ and Maeve sexual therapy, Otis may found himself with more attention from the ladies. Maybe he’ll actually practice what he preaches with Ola. Regardless Otis takes a lot of pride in helping his fellow students. The more Otis may learn about himself sexually, the better equipped he’ll be during therapy.



Maeve will find herself in a very lonely place. Witnessing Otis and Ola’s kiss just as she was about to admit her feelings to him, visibly upset the young girl. Walking away, Maeve will have to come to terms with the fact that Otis now has a girlfriend. She can’t avoid Otis though thanks to their sexual education business the pair are running in the school. Feeling lonely Maeve may seek out someone to comfort her but they may just lead to more hardship for her.

Plenty of fans want Maeve and Otis together but that would mean he would have to break up with Ola!

To Eric’s surprise, the school bully Adam and he had a very passionate encounter while in detention. Sadly for Eric, Adam is forced to move away to military school, so just as Eric may have found himself a potential partner it has been snatched away from him. On a brighter note, Eric had finally stuck up for himself while he and Adam had a heated confrontation. While Eric may be sad and confused by Adam’s emergence as Bi-sexual, Eric can add this to his confidence and potentially found himself a boyfriend in the next season.

Online Reaction to Sex Education

The comedy-drama resonated exponentially with subscribers all over the world. It was reported that within the first month of Sex Education’s release the series was on course to exceed 40 million viewers. Here’s how some fans have reacted to the show receiving a second season.

Sex Education Season 2 Production Status

After scouring the internet for news we’re sad to say that production has to yet begin for season 2! Filming of season one didn’t begin until Q3 of 2018 this was because the casting was still ongoing. The filming began sometime in September/October and finished in December.

If Netflix intends to have season 2 release in January 2020, then filming won’t begin until of least September. The onset locations are in Wales and Gloucestershire and if anyone knows British weather it’ll be best to wait for the 3 days of sunshine in the Summer for filming.

We’ll ensure to update this as we learn more. The next production update you’ll see will likely be for a table read!

Sex Education Season 2 Set Photos

As we’ve already discussed filming hasn’t started yet so we won’t be expecting to see any photos for the upcoming season until later this year!

Sex Education Season 2 Episode Count and Run Times

Like the first season, season 2 will also have 8 episodes! All of the episodes for season 2 will be available to stream on the day of release.

Each episode will have an estimated run time of 45 minutes. That’s six more hilarious hours of cringe-inducing and awkward sexual humor to be enjoyed.

Sex Education Season 2 Release Date

We don’t expect to see a trailer for some time thanks to the current production status. Netflix will likely release a trailer season 2 far earlier than what they did for the first season. The trailer for season one dropped on the 2nd of January, just 9 days before the series released!

As Sex Education has fast become one of the most popular titles Netflix won’t leave it quite so late next time.
