Netflix's 'Sex Education' Has Been Renewed For A Second Series

Netflix's coming-of-age series Sex Education has been renewed for a second series and we can't wait to find out what the teens or Moordale High get up to next.

The first season follows the lives of Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfield), an awkward teenager who struggles with the fact his mum is a therapist.

In a hilarious twist of fate, Otis (who remains a virgin) teams up with Maeve (Emma Mackey) to offer sex and relationship guidance to their fellow students in exchange for money.

Sex Education is the perfect inclusive series for anyone who's ever felt embarrassed having sex with the lights on, or anyone who was ever scared they wouldn't be able to 'do it right.'

While the main characters can first appear as clichés; the gay best friend, the popular girl, the jock, but they transpire to be so much more than that.

Since its release, the series has been praised for tackling important issues surrounding sexuality, identity and relationships, earning an impressive 90 per cent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Seeing how people across the world have connected to characters that began as ideas in my head is incredible. 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."

Netflix's Vice President of Original Content, Cindy Holland, added: "Laurie Nunn has captured the awkward teenage experience with a lot of heart and humor in Sex Education.
