Sex Education Season 3 plot
Sex Education Season 3 sounds like will be filled with even more of the hilarious, cringeworthy moments that viewers have enjoyed so much already.
The official plot synopsis for the series reveals: “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) 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.”
Netflix has released a selection of images which you can see below. Although they don’t give much more away from the plot, it’s good to see Otis, Maeve, Eric, and friends back in action.
Sex Education Season 3 cast
Fans will be delighted to know that the original cast are present and accounted for, with the likes of Otis (Asa Butterfield), Eric (Ncuti Gatwa), Jean (Gillian Anderson), Maeve (Emma Mackey), Aimee (Aimee Lou Wood), Adam (Connor Swindells) and former headmaster, Mr. Groff (Alistair Petrie) all showing up in promo material ahead of the show’s return.
Olivia Hanan (Simone Ashley, who’s also starring in Bridgerton Season 2), Anwar (Chaneil Kular) and Ruby Matthews (Mimi Keene) also made an appearance in the recent teaser trailer, so expect them to turn up in the new series, too.
Excitingly, there are some new faces set to turn up at Moordale when the series lands. Dua Saleh joins the series as a new student, Cal, who is set to clash with the new headmistress. Dua appears alongside Harry Potter star Jason Isaacs who is playing Peter Groff, Mr Groff’s far more successful (and less modest) older brother.
Jemima Kirke (who is set to star in Conversations With Friends) will appear as Hope Haddon, a new headmistress with big plans to shake up the school and make it a success once more!
Is there a trailer?
Yes, Netflix has released quite a lengthy trailer. It sees Maeve and Otis having an awkward exchange about the voicemail message. “What did it say?” she asks. Otis replies: “It doesn’t matter it was ages ago”. Maeve adds: “It matters to me”.
Meanwhile, Eric tells Adam: “Look I understand that you’re not ready to tell your mum, but if you’re not all in I can’t be with you.”
