Netflix Renews ‘Sex Education’ For Season 2

Sex Education was a huge success this January and we all fell in love with the students of Moordale High School.

The series is tracking an estimated 40 million households watching the show within the first four weeks. So, naturally, fans of the series demanded a season two and Netflix heard them.

Netflix announced that the series will return with 8 new episodes of the frank, heartfelt, honest, and hilariously awkward series.

Beginning the production mid-March, Gillian Anderson, Asa Butterfield, Emma Mackey, Ncuti Gatwa, Aimee-Lou Wood, Connor Swindells, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Tanya Reynolds and Patricia Allison are set to reprise their roles.

Creator Laurie Nunn will return as creator and executive producer with Jamie Campbell set to executive produce alongside Nunn. Eleven Films for Netflix will continue as the production company for the second season of the breakout series.

The first season garnered critical and popular acclaim and has opened up poignant cultural conversations around sexuality, relationships, and identity. The series has been lauded for delivering a coming-of-age story with a fresh, feminist heart, and for presenting intersectional and multidimensional characters that audiences have fallen in love with.

About the recommission, series creator Laurie Nunn said, “The reception to series one has been so exciting. Seeing how people across the world have connected to characters that began as ideas in my head is incredible. I’m hugely grateful to every person that has taken the time to watch the series, and I can’t wait to continue this amazing journey.”

Sex Education season one was created and written by Laurie Nunn and executive-produced by Jamie Campbell and Ben Taylor, and co-executive produced by Sian Robins-Grace. Taylor also served as a director on season one along with Kate Herron. The series is a
