The British comedy drama follows socially-awkward Otis and rebel Maeve who begin to doll out sex advice to all the equally as baffled teens in their rural school based on what Otis has observed from his sex therapist mother—Gillian Anderson. (And yes, that’s “Scully” from The X-Files.)

Creator Laurie Nunn “has captured the awkward teenage experience with a lot of heart and humor in Sex Education,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content, Netflix.

The popular recent original is slated to return for a second season. Nunn will continue to exec produce alongside Jamie Campbell and Ben Taylor, who served as a director on season one with Kate Herron. Sian Robins-Grace co-exec produces.

When the show returns for its sophomore session, Moordale Secondary is in the throes of a chlamydia outbreak, highlighting the need for better sex education at the school and new kids come to town who will challenge the status quo. Late bloomer Otis must master his newly discovered sexual urges in order to progress with his girlfriend Ola, while also dealing with his now strained relationship with Maeve.

In the first season, the British comedy drama tackled bullying, peer pressure, abortion, exploring your sexuality as LGBTQ+, masturbation and handled the topics sensitively, honestly and informatively. The show is “one of the most true-to-life depictions of high school romance and sex” on TV, according to Out Magazine.

Netflix revealed that the trending topic show was watched by over 40M households within its first four weeks – one of the first ratings revelations given out by the normally secretive platform.

“The reception to season one has been so exciting,” Nunn added, “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.”

Make sure you bring your notes to class. The second season of Sex Education—eight episodes—will stream on Netflix in 2020.
