As storms rage on outside our windows, Netflix has dropped some good news that isn’t weather-permitting.

Fans of Sex Education can unite in snow-covered glory, as Netflix today announced season three of the hit show. They took to their UK Twitter account today (10 February) to announce the news. [Main Image: @sexeducation, Instagram].

They said: “Let’s talk about sex baby, let’s talk about season 3 (of Sex Education).” It was accompanied by a video of Mr Geoff (Alistair Petrie) walking through the school’s art show with, of course, some added sex symbolism. He then ends the video with somewhat of a cliffhanger, saying: “I guess you’ll have to find out in season three, won’t you?”

Talk about a subtle announcement, eh?


While there is no confirmed date for series three of Sex Education just yet, it’s enough to keep fans excited. Series two was released on 17 January 2020, with the first coming out in January 2019. So, if this is anything to go by, it could be a safe bet to assume we should have season three on our screens in early 2021.

Show creator Laurie Nunn spoke to The Hollywood Reporter in January, discussing the possibility of more Sex Education. 

“I think these characters … they’ve got legs,” she said. “I think I could do some more with them if we’re given the chance. [Netflix] is very supportive and really wanting us to tell the stories that we feel passionate about. It really feels like we’re all on the same page, wanting to make the same show.”

Watch this space for more news, Sex Education diehards. And, if you haven’t seen it yet, there are two whole other seasons to power through while we wait for this weather to all blow over.
