The Trailer For 'Sex Education' Season Two Is Here And Wow

The Trailer For 'Sex Education' Season Two Is Here And Wow

Ever since the finale of Netflix smash-hit Sex Education left us teetering on a cliffhanger, viewers have been (impatiently) waiting for news of Season 2.

There's not long left to wait; the second series lands on Netflix in the UK on 17th January, 2020 at 8am, bringing eight new episodes to the viewing platform.

And now, the official trailer has finally landed. Needless to say, there are some near X-rated moments.

Season two builds on everything there was to love about season one, from its cast of authentic characters to plotlines that put gender politics front and centre, along with secondary school throwbacks and a healthy dose of sex-based humour.

The action continues to follow Otis (played with wide-eyed brilliance by Asa Butterfield), son of an acclaimed sex therapist (Gillian Anderson).

Series one introduced us to the pupils at Moordale High School, giving viewers a brilliant blend of British and American secondary school nostalgia that worked on both sides of the Atlantic.

We saw Otis navigating the peaks and troughs of high school - bullying, friendships, and feelings for tough-yet-vulnerable Maeve (Emma Mackey) - all while carving out an (accidental) career as the Moordale's resident teen sex therapist.

By the end of season one, Otis had shared a kiss with Ola (Patricia Allison), daughter of his mum's handyman boyfriend.

Viewers were left wondering how this would impact on his relationship with Maeve, who was finally moving on from her boyfriend Jackson.

In another hook-up, Otis' best friend Eric (people's favourite Ncuti Gatwa) got it on with the headmaster's son Adam (Connor Swindells) - only for Adam to be sent off to military school shortly after.

Happily, all the main cast members are returning for season two (phew!) plus some exciting new names: Sami Outalbali, George Robinson and Chinenye Ezeudu.

Outalbali plays French student hottie Rahim, while Ezeudu takes on the role of hyper-intelligent but unlucky in love Viv. Robinson plays Isaac, a new resident at Maeve's caravan park who's set to cause a stir.

What else do we know about series two? Well, judging by the trailer, Otis is juggling new girlfriend Ola with his relationship with Maeve, who is suffering from more than a little jealousy.

Meanwhile, in military school, Adam struggles to come to terms with his feelings for school showman Eric, who has hooked up with sexy French student Rahim.

Oh, and in major news, we can expect an outbreak of chlamydia at Moordale, highlighting the need for more effective sex education in schools. It looks like Otis' mum is even brought in to give a sex ed talk - awkward.

Talking about the recommission, 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."

We. Can't. Wait.
