We've been given a little teaser for the third season of Sex Education.

The main protagonist of the incredible British sitcom, Asa Butterfield, who plays Otis, said the next instalment to the series will be absolutely incredible.

Writing on Twitter, the actor said: "Lemme just say, you lot aren't ready for season 3, trust me."

Netflix UK and Ireland jokingly replied to the post, saying: "tbh you should see our mentions - I think they probably are."

The post copped tens of thousands of likes and people have asked when it's possible to see it land on Netflix.


We know the series has wrapping up filming, so it's only a matter of time before we get to feast our eyes and ears on the new material.

An official announcement was made back in March this year, with a crew member thanking everyone 'involved for that epic eight month adventure in love, laughter, and TV magic'.

The last season of Sex Education left fans on a pretty huge cliffhanger.

Otis declared his love for Maeve, but the voicemail was deleted by newcomer Isaac, Jean is pregnant, Jackson and Viv made up and reaffirmed their friendship, Maeve found out her mum is using drugs again and reported her to child services, and Adam got on stage during a theatre production and told Eric how he feels, which broke Rahim's heart.

Asa Butterfield told The Guardian fans can still expect more excruciating awkwardness from him for the upcoming season.


"There's a bit of a time-jump since the season two cliffhanger," he said. "Otis is back at school but he's got different things on his plate. He's grown up a bit and become slightly more sassy.

"It's been fun to portray his newfound charisma. Don't worry, though, he's still tragically awkward too."

And while Asa was snapped sporting a pretty impressive piece of facial hair while filming recently, he said it's not quite what it seemed.

He added: "We got snapped by paparazzi while filming and people have been freaking out about Otis having a moustache.

"I can exclusively reveal it's not real. It's a stunt 'tache. And thankfully it doesn't last the whole season. I don't think anyone could bear looking at that thing for long."

And when asked about his back and forth relationship with Maeve, played by Emma Mackey, Asa said there's still more to tell on that front.
