Sex Education has found its way into the hearts of Netflix watchers and the third season has just finished filming.

Through its unique premise and loveable characters, Sex Education has become a popular show on Netflix. Many have wondered when the programme would return, and fortunately, fans shouldn’t have too much longer to wait.

LAD Bible reported that a crew member who had been working on the season shared an image from the set with the caption:

“That’s a wrap. Thank you Sex Education Season 3 and everyone involved for that epic eight-month adventure in love, laughter, and TV magic.”

Safe to say, fans of the show were excited by the news.

Comments in response to the post included:

“Congrats omg I’m so hyped.”

Can’t wait for this.”

What changes will season 3 bring?

Without giving too much away, season 2 had a pretty significant cliffhanger. It is unclear how Season 3 will address the ending of season 2 but some of the actors have given clues.

Asa Butterfield, who plays Otis Milburn, explained to The Guardian what fans can expect from his character in season 3:

“There’s a bit of a time-jump since the season two cliffhanger.”

“Otis is back at school but he’s got different things on his plate. He’s grown up a bit and become slightly more sassy.”

“It’s been fun to portray his newfound charisma. Don’t worry, though, he’s still tragically awkward too.”

The actor also dispelled rumours of Otis returning with some facial hair. Butterfield stated:

“We got snapped by paparazzi while filming and people have been freaking out about Otis having a moustache. ”

“I can exclusively reveal it’s not real. It’s a stunt ‘tache. And thankfully it doesn’t last the whole season. I don’t think anyone could bear looking at that thing for long.”

While this will give fans some insight into what to expect, questions are still lingering about the relationship the character has with Maeve, played by Emma Mackey. It looks like season 3 will continue to develop this relationship.

Butterfield noted:

“People get quite cross when we tease them and stretch it out. Their relationship continues to develop in season three.”

“We also explore why Otis was running his sex therapy clinic in the first place. Was it just to be close to Maeve or does he get fulfilment from helping people?”

Plenty to look forward to

On top of the snippets given by Butterfield, the new season promises to introduce new characters.

The likes of Jemima Kirke, known for Girls, has joined the cast to play Moordale High’s new headteacher. It seems like there will be plenty for the new season to cover, let’s hope it lives up to the hype.

Sex Education season 3 should release later this year.
