Centring around a group of sexually curious teens and their embarrassing (but all too normal) bedroom dilemmas, the hit show already had a huge pool of fans thanks to the success of its first season.
So it's no wonder they all decided to binge-watch the return of Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfield), Maeve Wiley (Emma Mackey), Eric Effoing (Ncuti Gatwa) and Ola Nyman (Patricia Allison) as the crew made their comeback - with some even claiming to have got through all eight episodes of the series in one sitting.
"Binge watching sex education all night long," declared one viewer as the Netflix series returned to screens.
While another confessed: "Just watched a whole season of "Sex Education" in one sitting. Now, I can go to sleep in peace."
A third chipped in: "Did i just finish the whole new season of sex education in one go?? yes and i am ashamed"(sic).
As the show crashed back onto screens, there were even more sexual dilemmas to discuss than last time. After all, Otis wasn't the only sex guru on campus any more, as his mum (Gillian Anderson) was now also offering her services.
We were faced with asexuality, bisexuality and pansexuality as well as heterosexual relationships.
Plus, the show was also praised for addressing several other important issues within its plot, such as sexual assault, drug addiction, adoptive parent anxiety, the morning after pill and bullying.
One particularly moving storyline was Aimee's sexual assault, and the way in which the girls rallied together in the aftermath.
Maeve's best friend (Aimee Lou Wood) found herself traumatised and unable to get the bus into school after being assaulted on her way to school one day.
But at the end of the season all the girls defiantly took the bus together, and helped her to overcome the horrific incident.
The season also took a powerful look at Kedar Williams-Stirling's character Jackson and the difficult relationship he had with his adoptive mother - finally giving us answers as to why she pushes him so hard with his swimming.
Plus, it took us on Adam Groff's journey to accepting his sexuality despite his militant upbringing, and gave us an insight into Ola's discovery that she's actually pansexual.
"#SexEducation season 2 is worth the wait. Many sensitive topics have been addressed beautifully," one person gushed after watching it all.
While another agreed: "I LOVE Sex Education so much. It tackles so many important topics and normalises so many "taboo" things".
"Can't believe how many valuable topics and issues they fit into ONE show
(everybody go watch Sex Education please)," a third urged.
We agree. Now, Netflix, where's season three?
