*Spoilers for Sex Education season 2 ahead*

Most of us spent the month of January medicating our blues with the arrival of Sex Education season two - and we can now rejoice and it's officially coming back for a third season.


The NSFW teen drama sees a group of high school students navigate their coming of age and sexuality, and all the cringe and embarrassing moments that come with it.

Netflix announced the comedy is back for round three via a hilarious promo video, featuring none other than Alistair Petrie, aka Mr Groff, as he goes full art historian.

The actor - who plays the miserable headteacher of Moordale secondary school - walks down the hallway of the school, lined with paintings of his pupils.

Petrie examines the paintings - which all feature various props and symbols - and he moves slowly down the cast of characters.

Mr Groff examines portraits of the Moordale students (
"Otis, an arousing wheel of brie...," he says.

"Eric, asking the old question 'he loves me, he loves me not' - based on a French game...

"Lily and her violet, a greek symbol of lesbian and bisexual love...

"Our young thespian [Jackson], with a nod to Shakepeare...

"Dr Jean Milburn, pomegranate: a symbol of fertility."

Finally he comes to a portrait of Eric and Adam at the end of the corridor.

"Ah, Eric and Adam, I wonder what's in store for these two cherubs," before he says: " Well, you've have to wait to find out in season three."

Mr Groff gives an art history lesson in the announcement teaser (
Could Petrie's line about Eric be a hint not all is over between him and Rahim? Or is he going to choose Adam, who he appeared to side with at the end of season two?

Dr Jean Milburn's pomegranate is clearly a reference to her pregnancy, which she found out about at the end of the season, and Otis' wheel of brie - perhaps a Call Me By My Name/ American Pie-inspired scene is in the works?! We wouldn't put it past the writers.

Season two of Sex Education saw Otis' (Asa Butterfield) sexual awakening take full form as he progressed in his relationship with Ola (Patricia Allison), all the while coming to terms with the fact his sex therapist mum Jean (Gillian Anderson) is dating her dad Jakub (Mikael Persbrandt).

At the same time, Maeve (Emma Mackey) struggles with her feelings for Otis, while he's forced to confront if he's really over his former business partner.

Otis is dating Ola in season two, and the pair plan to go 'all the way' (

Meanwhile, Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) is swept off his feet by the new French student at Moordale, Rahim (Sami Outalbali). The pair make it official, but Eric can't help to get Adam (Connor Swindells) out of his head, especially since he's back in town after being expelled from the army.

As usual, the drama explores important issues, such as self harm, consent, sexual assault and more - basically just being the most woke teen TV show to date, and we love it.

We'll keep you updated with season three info as and when it comes.
