Sex Education 3 Trailer Teases New Plot Details As Netflix Series Drops

It looks like the cast of Moordale School have been busy in their absence from our tellies.

Yep, the new series of Sex Education has now dropped on Netflix, and we can promise you it's going to be a dramatic, emotional and rather frisky ride.

Check out the trailer below:

To refresh your memory, the second season left us with a massive bombshell, as Maeve (Emma Mackey) admitted she liked Otis (Asa Butterfield).

Fans were horrified when Isaac (George Robinson) deleted Otis' voicemail in which he could be heard confessing his feelings for her, too.

But how will things pan out between the former BFFs in season three?

Well, according to the trailer... not good.

The new clip, which dropped yesterday, starts with Maeve asking Otis what was in the mysterious voicemail, to which he replies: "It doesn't matter anymore, it was ages ago".

Nooo!

The next clip shows Otis snogging none other than Ruby (Mimi Keene), in a romance that nobody saw coming.

Poor Maeve is front and centre as it happens, too, just to rub salt in the wound a little more...

Meanwhile, Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) and Adam (Connor Swindells) are now an official couple, grappling with the reaction from their peers to Adam coming out as gay.

But it's not only the school's reaction they have to worry about, as Adam's mum still doesn't know.

"If you're not all in then I can't be with you," we see Eric warn him.

Furthermore, the trailer shows a very pregnant Gillian Anderson, aka Otis' mother, Jean. Could a new sibling arrive during season 3?

There is tonnes more to come in the next instalment too.

For one, Girls star Jemima Kirke joins as new principal Miss Haddon, and attempts to change the school's image.

It seems Moordale has gained a bit of a reputation as a 'sex school' after everyone's antics. But will she be able to whip them into shape?!

Speaking about the third season ahead of the release, lead actor Asa teased that the plot would be picking up a short while after the drama of season two, and hinted a rather different Otis was going to emerge.

"There's a bit of a time-jump since the season two cliffhanger," he told The Guardian.

"Otis is back at school but he's got different things on his plate. He's grown up a bit and become slightly more sassy. It's been fun to portray his newfound charisma. Don't worry, though, he's still tragically awkward too."

An official synopsis from Netflix reads: "Otis is having casual sex, Eric and Adam are official, and Jean has a baby on the way.

"Aimee discovers feminism, Jackson gets a crush and a lost voicemail still looms."

All of the original cast are returning for the new season, including Ola (Patricia Allison), Aimee (Aimee Wood), Jean (Gillian Anderson), Steve Morley (Chris Jenks), Michael Groff (Alistair Petrie) and Jackson (Kedar Williams-Stirling).

Plus Jason Isaacs (aka Harry Potter's Lucius Malfoy) is joining as Peter Groff, ex-principal Mr Groff's older brother; songwriter Dua Saleh is playing non-binary student Cal; and Indra Ové is starring as Elsie's foster mum.

First airing in 2019, Sex Education has been an extremely popular series with the first season receiving over 40 million streams in its first month.

We know what our binge on Netflix is going to be this evening!
