The critically acclaimed series tells the story of the students of Moordale High School, specifically Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfield) who is an awkward teenager who struggles with the fact that his mum is a sex therapist.

According to Netflix's viewing tracking the show was been viewed in 40 million households within the first four weeks of it being released.

In the first season, Otis teamed up with Maeve (Emma Mackey) to offer help to other students at their school with weird and wacky problems.

Earlier this year, Netflix announced that the main cast will all return for the second instalment which will include Gillian Anderson, Ncuti Gatwa, Aimee-Lou Wood and Kedar Williams-Stirling.

Since it's release, Sex Education has won praise for tackling some important subject matter such as sexuality, identity, and relationships. It has also garnered a 90 per cent fresh rating on film review site Rotten Tomatoes.

Speaking about the renewal, 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 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."

Giving us an idea of what could be in store, Nunn told Thrillist (before the season two announcement came): "Series one is very much Otis's journey and I think it will be again. If we're lucky enough to get a series two we will always come back to Otis. He's a fantastic leading character.

"It just feels like they could go anywhere. I love the idea of getting different characters together - if not together in a relationship, just together in the space. Like, I never thought those two characters would have a conversation and there will be loads of opportunity for that."

She went on to add: "I think that Adam is just desperate for connection. He's so isolated and alone... The fact that he bullies people and in particular Eric is his way of looking for intimacy in the world.

"It will be interesting to see where that takes him now that he's developed a new part of himself after episode eight. It's very sad and it's definitely a cliffhanger in terms of what might happen in the future between those two characters."
