Sex Education Creator Laurie Nunn Has Already Started Writing Season Three
| Last updated
Season two of Sex Education hasn't even been released yet (this Friday, folks!), but already we've got promising news for life after that, as the show's creator has revealed she's already started writing a third instalment.
These things take a while to get confirmed and signed off, but creator and writer Laurie Nunn is hopeful that we've got much more to come after series two hits Netflix later this week.
Speaking to LADbible, Nunn said: "I've started writing series three, but that's just a very normal part of the process because we work on such tight schedule, and season three hasn't been greenlit yet or officially commissioned.
"We won't find out whether we get a series three until the end of January, so fingers crossed!"
Nunn also said she even has high hopes for a future for Sex Education beyond that tentative third series.
She continued: "I love writing these characters. It's such a big ensemble and I think the theme of the show - in terms of it being about sex and relationships - it really just offers up endless story opportunities.
"So I think the show definitely has legs if Netflix are nice enough to let me keep writing it and let Ben [Taylor] keep directing it!"
Of course, until then we'll have the long-awaited second series to binge on, as the action returns to Moordale High this Friday.
Teasing us about what's in store, Netflix said: "In season 2, as a late bloomer Otis must master his newly discovered sexual urges in order to progress with his girlfriend Ola whilst also dealing with his now strained relationship with Maeve.
"Meanwhile, Moordale Secondary is in the throes of a Chlamydia outbreak, highlighting the need for better sex education at the school and new kids come to town who will challenge the status quo. Maeve and Aimee's BFF relationship is stronger than ever since Aimee ditched 'the Untouchables'.
"Eric notices his new-found self-confidence attracting unfamiliar kinds of attention. Adam is at military school, still conflicted by his feelings for Eric.
"Lily has hit pause on her sexual endeavours to focus on her creative talents and finds a newfound friend in Ola.
"Jackson is forced to flex his mental rather than physical muscle and is still buckling under the pressure from his parents to succeed.
"Jean and Jakob's relationship is discovered and they have to learn how to operate as a blended family. Jean forms an unlikely connection with Mrs Groff and a friendship between the two women begins to form."
Sex Education season two will be released on Netflix on Friday 17 January.
