The full trailer for the upcoming season of Sex Education is out, and by the looks of it, season 3 has a lot going on.
The coming-of-age comedy follows socially-awkward teenager Otis who, in partnership with tough girl Maeve, starts a business where he dispenses sex and relationship advice to his confused and very thirsty schoolmates – all while navigating his own sexual hang-ups (and his feelings for Maeve).
In season 3, Otis grows a moustache, and is also having casual sex. Otis’ best friend Eric and his former bully Adam have brought their relationship out of the shadows, are navigating what it’s like to be together openly. Maeve and her best friend, the ditzy but sweet Aimee, seem to hit a bump in their relationship.
Meanwhile Otis’ mother Jean has a baby on the way, and a new head teacher named Hope (played by Jemima Kirke) attempts to bring order to Moordale Secondary, which has apparently grown a reputation for being “the sex school.”
The series stars Asa Butterfield as Otis, Gillian Anderson as Jean, Emma Mackey as Maeve, Ncuti Gatwa as Eric, Connor Swindells as Adam, Aimee-Lou Wood as Aimee, and Kedar Williams-Stirling as Jackson.
It also stars Chaneil Kular as Anwar, Simone Ashley as Olivia, Mimi Keene as Ruby, Tanya Reynolds as Lily, Mikael Persbrandt as Jakob, Patricia Allison as Ola, Sami Outalbali as Rahim, Anne-Marie Duff as Erin, George Robinson as Isaac, Chinenye Ezeudu as Viv, Alistair Petrie as Mr Groff, Samantha Spiro as Maureen Groff, Rakhee Thakrar as Emily Sands, and Jim Howick as Colin Hendricks.
Season 3 sees new faces are joining the cast, including Jason Isaacs (as in, Harry Potter’s Lucius Malfoy) playing Adam’s successful uncle Peter, Dua Saleh playing a nonbinary student named Cal, and Indra Ové as Anna, the foster mum of Maeve’s sister Elsie.
