Meet Otis Thompson - a socially awkward high school virgin who lives with his mother, a sex therapist. Surrounded by manuals, videos and open conversations about sex, Otis is a reluctant expert on the subject. When his home life is revealed at school, Otis realizes that he can use his specialist knowledge to gain status. He teams up with Maeve, a whip-smart bad-girl, and together they set up an underground sex therapy clinic to deal with their fellow students' weird and wonderful problems.
Netflix announced today that Sex Education has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes just weeks following the dramedy's freshman release, which since January 11 has been watched by over 40 million households.
The series stars Asa Butterfield as Otis Thompson, an inexperienced high school kid who channels his sex therapist mother, played by Gillian Anderson, when he teams up with a smart and rebellious classmate to start an underground sex therapy clinic at their school.
The streaming service has ordered another eight episodes for Season 2 of Sex Education, with production slated to start this spring in the UK. No time frame has been set for a return, but a likely time frame would be late this year or early 2020.
