Netflix Confirms That Season Two Of Sex Education Has Started Filming

Filming has started on the second season of Sex Education.

Netflix confirmed the news with a tweet that read: "Ok it's official, Sex Education s2 filming has started. here's to more wanking and more heartwarming moments in equal measure."

Well, that's good. We can always use more wanking and heartwarming moments, right?

After the first season was such a runaway success - it was viewed in at least 40 million households within four weeks of it being released - it was always a no brainer that it would get a second run out.

After a very short amount of time, here we are.

The show also stars Gillian Anderson, Ncuti Gatwa, Aimee-Lou Wood, Connor Swindells, and Kedar Williams-Stirling. Netflix has announced that the main cast will all return for season two.

Sex Education won praise from fans and critics alike for taking a no-holds-barred approach to important subject matter that is often not discussed such as sexuality, relationships, and identity.

Oh, and it got a 90 per cent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which ain't bad by any standards.

Critics of the show loved it so much that Helen Brown in the Daily Telegraph awarded it five stars out of a possible five.

In her review, Brown wrote: "Twenty-first-century teenagers are going to find real comfort and companionship in these characters, while those of us old enough to have seen those John Hughes movies at the cinema will wish Sex Education had been there for us."

NBC Think's Ani Bundel added: "Look past the erection jokes and you'll find a show that's willing to acknowledge the emotional challenges of sex are just as important as the mechanical ones."

Seriously though, don't look past the erection jokes. They're well funny.

Fans raved about the first season, too.

Speaking about the show's renewal a while back, the show's creator Laurie Nunn said: "The reception to series one has been so exciting. 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 humour 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."

There will be eight new episodes of the show and it will be out on Netflix when it's bloody well ready.
