Sex Education season 3 is (sort of) nearly upon us, which is a great thing given that it feels as if an age has passed since we last saw Otis and the gang.

Moordale High is a ridiculous place, stuck between space and time, not conforming to any time in history, nor any location known to man. It’s British, but American, much much like the way Christian Bale is.

It’s also full of teenagers that actually have sex lives, unlike the ones that we all grew up knowing/being. They’re also much more “woke” than kids my age ever were at college, which I don’t mean as a bad thing, as the show does a great job of representing LGBT issues among many other things.

Season 2 was essentially much of the same after season 1, which is to be commended since season 1 was really good, and season 3 was supposed to have started shooting already, but like with many TV and film projects it was delayed due to the ol’ pandemic.

However, the good news is that filming is set to start up again in August, which means we’re hopefully one step closer to seeing Maeve and Otis get it on.

Wayne Garvie, Sony president of international production, confirmed to Deadline the plans, providing there’s no second wave or unexpected spanner in the works.

Asa Butterfield also revealed that filming was supposed to have started in June but was postponed due to social distancing regulations.

‘It’s quite hard to keep the two-metre distance when you’re kissing someone or doing anything else. ‘I’m sure that’s something they have realised. As well as that, when you’re on a set making film and TV, there are so many parts to this machine.’

Furthermore, Aimee Lou Wood, who plays Aimee Gibbs, recently told Digital Spy that “everything looks on track”, which is always reassuring to hear.

The show really is one of the better things on Netflix, which is surprising given how many times the’ angsty yet horny teen comedy drama’ has been done over the years.

It’s a more accessible and decidedly less depressing version of Skins, and in keeping with the language of the demographic featured on the show, I’m here for it.

Seriously though, how long can they keep teasing the Maeve/Otis relationship?

We wanna’ watch them bone, in a completely none-perverted way of course…
