Everything You Need to Know About Netflix's 'Sex Education' Season 2

Will Maeve and Otis finally end up together?

Created by Laurie Nunn, Netflix‘s comedy-drama series Sex Education has been renewed for a second season that is set to release in early 2020. Fans will be seeing familiar faces from Season 1 including the TV show‘s main characters: Otis Milburn played by Asa Butterfield, Maeve Wiley played by Emma Mackey and Eric Effiong played by Ncuti Gatwa.

Warning: This post contains spoilers.

Following the story of Otis Milburn, a socially awkward high school student who lives with his sex therapist mother, Jean (played by Gillian Anderson), the show sees Otis and his crush Maeve Wiley setting up a clinic at their high school where Otis gives his fellow schoolmates advice on sex.

Throughout the first season, the episodes touch upon various relatable topics teenagers nowadays struggle with, such as adolescent growing pains, sexuality, abortion, coming out and slut-shaming. Viewers also expected Maeve and Otis to end up together in the season finale. During the final moments of the last episode, Maeve heads on over to Otis’ house who seemingly looked like she was ready to confess her feelings, but catches Otis kissing Ola Nyman (played by Patricia Allison).

Season 2 of Sex Education is set to release on Netflix on January 17, 2020. Ahead of the premiere, here’s everything you need to know before watching the upcoming episodes.

There are new cast members.

Newcomers Sami Outalbali, George Robinson and Chinenye Ezeudu have been cast for Season 2. Ezeudu plays Viv, a super-intelligent, multi-talented academic student, who is anything but talented in love. Outalbali will be taking on the role of a French student named Rahim, who turns heads when he joins Moordale Secondary. As for Robinson, his character Isaac moves into Maeve’s caravan park.

The main characters are returning.

As previously mentioned, Otis, Maeve and Eric will be returning for the new season as well as Otis’ mom, Jean. Aimee (Aimee-Lou Wood), Adam (Connor Swindells), Jackson (Kedar Williams-Stirling), Tanya (Tanya Reynolds) and Mr. Groff (Alistair Petrie) will also be making their way back to the series.

Fans can expect more confusion and frustration from Maeve and Otis’ relationship. Mackey told Cosmopolitan UK“It’s tricky because I don’t even know where they stand anymore, I think they both need to figure some stuff out.”

There’s a new gang in town.

The new season’s plot will highlight Moordale battling a Chlamydia outbreak. In addition, the series will be adding a new group of kids whose number one goal is to create drama and shake things up.

In the season finale, Otis and Ola establish their relationship. However, in Season 2, Otis reportedly struggles to progress with Ola due to his strained friendship with Maeve.
