Without much surprise, Sex Education, the new Netflix comedy TV series, will be back for a second season. The series was both a critics and public success as it was seen by more than 40 million subscribers in its first month of broadcast according to the streaming platform. So we understand why Netflix was quick to offer eight extra episodes to Moordale High School students.
In a statement, Cindy Holland, vp originals at Netflix, said: “Laurie Nunn has captured the awkward teenage experience with a lot of heart and humor in Sex Education. Along with the Eleven team and executive producer and director Ben Taylor, she’s created a universally relatable series that has resonated with our members around the world.”
Meanwhile, Laurie Nunn, the creator of Sex Education, found it incredible “Seeing how people across the world have connected to characters that began as ideas in my head. 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.”
The shooting of season 2 will start this spring in England. Asa Butterfield, Gillian Anderson, Emma Mackey, Ncuti Gatwa, Aimee-Lou Wood, Connor Swindells, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Tanya Reynolds et Patricia Allison should be back for the 2nd season.
