Sex Education Season 3: A New Maeve Wiley? Emma Mackey Out Of The Franchise?

Is Emma Not In Season 3 Of Sex Education?

The pandemic has not only kept us from going places, but our favourite shows are also seemed to be delayed! But not anymore for the fans of Sex Education as the 3rd instalment is right around the corner. It was not far ago when Netflix posted a picture to announce that season 3 is in production officially.

Script shared by official Instagram handle of Netflix.

The production was to start initially in April; therefore, the release date was expected to be delayed from January 2021. But now that the production of the show has finally begun, we can expect the release to be in the rack soon!!

Please unite Maeve and Otis in season 3!!!

There is no doubt that the series has attracted a lot of admirers with the quirkiness of the characters, the fantastic cast and a very engaging storyline. The two central protagonists of the show, Otis Milburn (played by Asa Butterfield) and Maeve Wiley (played by Emma Mackey), have kept the fans on the edge of the seat.

In the previous season, the ending left the fans raging over the character of Issac (played by George Robinson), due to his selfish act to have Maeve for himself. The fans have flooded the social media with the request to the makers to unite the awkward but adorable couple finally.

So exactly when is the release expected?

Looking back at the release of the previous seasons, it was anticipated that this one also releases in January. No wonder the supervillain-“CORONA” took this too away from us. The filming was meant to start in May/April 2020 in Wales(where both the previous seasons were shot)- but for obvious reasons it has been unworkable.

The teaser of official announcement of season three just burst out on the internet. The Headmaster Mr Groff is seen examining the pictures of the main characters and the pairings. Not only this, Netflix official handle on Instagram posted a photo of the script with some classic emojis like aubergine, the Moordale logo and “S”.  To maintain the aesthetics and vibe the same as earlier, it is assumed that filming will be done in full force.

What are the expectations from season 3?

As of the cast goes, majority of the characters are expected to be same. This can be confirmed by the cast video released by the officials where the actors are sharing their experiences for the prep of season 3. There are still doubts regarding some personas like Jackson’s(played by Kedar Williams-Stirling) friend and tutor Viv(played by Chinenye Ezeudu), the dashing boy Rahim(played by Sami Outalbali) and Issac(played by George Robinson),who just crushed our dream of Maeve-Otis’ love affair, Maeve’s mother or her brother Sean (played by Anne-Marie Duff and Edward Bluemel). No new additions are announced by Netflix yet.

For the moment, producers are searching for extras to share screen time with the awkward guy himself “OTIS”, Gillian Anderson i.e. Dr. Milburn and the rest of the cast members with Mad Dog Productions within the age limit of 18-26.

The cast may live together? Did we hear this right?

Yes, to prevent any risk to health of the cast and crew, the makers are thinking of a quarantine along with the cast members. “It’s quite hard to keep the two-meter distance when you’re kissing someone or doing anything else. I’m sure that’s something they have realised. As well as that, when you’re on a set making film and TV, there are so many parts to this machine. It will make it incredibly difficult to enforce a rule around quarantine, but you have to because this virus is going to be around for ages. Luckily that’s not my job to figure those things out”- Asa said in one of his recent interviews. He added this when asked about cast living together- “If that’s what needs to be done, then that’s what needs to be done.”

Chances for further seasons of your Sex Education?

Creator Laurie Nunn said in her recent interview that, ”I think the characters have got legs and the show could run for several more seasons. I think I could do some more with them if we’re given the chance. Netflix is very supportive and really want us to tell the stories that we feel passionate about. It really feels like we’re all on the same page, wanting to make the same show.”
