MANILA, Philippines – More Sex Education is on its way!
The hit Netflix series has been renewed for 8 new episodes, with stars Gillian Anderson, Asa Butterfield, Emma Mackey, Ncuti Gatwa, Aimee-Lou Wood, Connor Swindells, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Tanya Reynolds, and Patricia Allison set to reprise their roles.
“The reception to series one has been so exciting. Seeing how people across the world have connected to characters that began as ideas in my head is incredible,” said series creator Laurie Nunn. “I’m hugely grateful to every person that has taken the time to watch the series, and I can’t wait to continue this amazing journey.”
Sex Education follows the story of Otis, an awkward high school virgin who lives with his sex therapist mother. He then teams up with resident bad girl Maeve to start a sex-therapy clinic at school, providing advice to their fellow students as they navigate sexuality, identity, and relationships.
The show premiered on Netflix on January 11, and became a breakout hit – Netflix estimated that 4 million households watched it within the first 4 weeks of its release.
