Following its wildly popular and well-received first season in January 2019, it was only a matter of time before the second season of Sex Education was released. Here’s what you might expect from the upcoming season and why you should be looking forward to it.
Season one of Sex Education introduced us to a range of characters in the fictional town of Moordale, the students at the sixth form there. Main characters Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfield) and Maeve Wiley (Emma Mackey) are two completely different personalities who decide to work together and give sex advice to students for cash. With engaging writing and numerous characters to identify with, Sex Education season one was a fun light-hearted look into the progression into adulthood.
And by the looks of it, season two looks to be more of exactly that. After recently finishing production the show has slowly beginning to build up hype with stills of our fan favourites and some new and interesting faces. With it set to release January, Netflix is sure to begin ramping up the marketing so we can hopefully expect a trailer in the coming weeks.
My one big worry with this however that the influx of roles will result in other characters not getting the screen time they deserve
One of the best aspects of the show is its characters and the wide range of important and relevant stories they tell. So, I for one can’t wait to see how the charters and relationships continue to blossom going into the second season, especially with introductions of new characters. My one big worry with this however that the influx of roles will result in other characters not getting the screen time they deserve and making the show too confusing to keep up with.
For a show about sex, one of the obvious factors in Sex Education is relationships, for which it has many and raises many questions as to which ones could end and which can begin going into season two. Will Otis and Maeve ever finally get together or simply remain business partners? Will the relationship between Ola’s and Otis’ parents be the undoing of theirs? Can Adam survive military school and come to terms with his own sexuality? We can hope that the show will successfully answers these questions in a realistic and relatable way.
With only a few short months to its January premiere, Sex Education season two is definitely a highly anticipated show that hopefully lives up to the hype. If you haven’t seen the first season yet, then what have you been doing?
