The much-awaited Sex Education Season 3 will arrive late this year! Yes, you have heard it right. Netflix has finally announced the time frame of their much-awaited major releases such as Sex Education Season 3, The Witcher Season 2, along with many other tv shows and movies, which will release this year.
Debuting in 2019 Sex Education is a British show tremendously loved by the fans for its unique storyline and plot. Set in Moordale Secondary School, it centers around Otis, played by Asa Butterfield. His mom Jean, played by Gillian Anderson, is a sex therapist. He was an uneasy guy who shots to popularity when he starts advising his classmates on the topics of sex and relationships.
The second part deals with Otis’s complexities after getting feelings for Maeve (Emma Mackey) and her strenuous relationship with his best friend Eric (Ncuti Gatwa). The show, which was loved for its relatable yet complex characters, is on the way with its third sequel.
Sex Education Season 3 Release Date: When will it arrive?
As per the new updates, Sex Education 3 is lined up for a return in the latter half of the year. Apart from this, there’s no mention of the official release date. In season 3, mostly all the cast members are expected to return with some new inclusion. According to our guesses, we can expect the third season to arrive by Q4 2021 (October, November, December), one of the three months mentioned above.
The show will be available on Netflix; you can enjoy the new season there, and in case if you haven’t watched a single season of Sex Education yet, then we will recommend you to watch it right now as it is available on Netflix. If we receive any further updates on the series, we will keep you updated.
Has the filming finished yet?
Yes! as per the updates received around 1 month ago, The Sex Education Season 3 has wrapped up its filming. Spotted by some fans in the Sex Education subreddit, one of the production members of the show has uploaded one picture stating, “And that’s a wrap!!’. Originally the filming for the third season began in Wales around 1 year ago, where the production crew and all actors were in a bio bubble during the filming. As it seems as of now, the show has completed its filming and is expected to arrive late this year.

What happened between Otis and Maeve in the finale of Sex Education Season 2?
It’s gonna be an exciting show since the last season ended, putting the viewers right on edge. Otis gathered the courage to confess his feelings for Maeve but couldn’t find her at her home, so he called her and left a voice note, and on the other end of the phone, there was Isaac Maeve’s new neighbor. So after listening to Otis’ voice note on how much he feels for Maeve, Isaac deletes it, so as a result, Maeve doesn’t get to hear the voice note.
The romantic message left by Otis was very emotional, and even some of the fans even hated the cliffhanger in the end. But we are sure the writers have something else on their mind with Maeve Otis and Isaac, and maybe there’d be a love triangle between them in season 3.
Asa Butterfield, aka Otis, earlier in an interview stated that the relationship between Otis and Maeve would reach a new level in season 3. With Isaac involved now, we think it will surely be a love triangle between the three. He also revealed some information about his character in season 3.
“There IS a bit of a time-jump since the season 2 ENDED IN A cliffhanger,” Butterfield said. “Otis is back at school but he HAS got different things on his plate NOW. He HAS grown up a bit and become slightly sassier. It HAS been fun to portray his newfound charisma.”
