Asa Butterfield, who plays the show's protagonist Otis, recently said the next outing for 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, prompting people to ask when it would be possible to see it land on Netflix.
Well, we've got the answer to that question now, so fans can rest easy.
Filming wrapped on the new season back in March this year, with a crew member posting to thank 'everyone involved for that epic eight month adventure in love, laughter, and TV magic'.
Of course, 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.
Meanwhile, 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.
Butterfield also confirmed to The Guardian that 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 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.
Sex Education season three will be available on Netflix on 17 September.
