If you are ready and waiting for Sex Education season 3 and why on Earth wouldn’t you? The third batch of all the episodes following the social and sexual lives of the teen students, teachers, and parents and in Moordale High is all set to continue to be one of the best Netflix shows, and the best Netflix Original series, to date.
Set amid the gorgeous Welsh countryside, the charm of Sex Education lies within its inclusive, nuanced ensemble cast.
Otis’s initial premise gave sex advice at school for cash while his mother, Gillian Anderson’s Jean, plied her sex therapist vocation responsibly and was quickly outgrown.
Sex Education season 3 was not lucky enough to escape the disruption to the entire entertainment industry caused by Covid-19. Still, filming has now resumed in September, so we should be looking at a 2021 release.
We expect Season 3 release date to be summer 2021, now that filming is set to resume. The show did start filming, but it had to be postponed due to the coronavirus like many others.
But as the time was running out on filming in the year 2020, as the show needs to be filmed in the longer days of the British summer, an important decision was made by Netflix.
Sex Education Season 3 Details
To prevent a potentially colossal delay, filming resumed in the month of September 2020, with an expected completion window of February 2021. All non-United Kingdom members of the cast will have to be in the county from August 23 to undergo a 14-day quarantine period.
Fortunately, Netflix seems to understand precisely how thirsty Sex Education fans are for a bit more of the show, and the online streamer marked the renewal announcement with a teaser trailer.

Given how heavily the second season leaned into an ensemble narrative approach, it would not be easy to imagine the show returning without the cast’s bulk reprising their roles.
Butterfield said that he’s pleased with the first episode and didn’t go where I anticipated it. He added that a few things have changed, and he is excited. They are also firmly with him when he says he want more of Otis and Maeve.
There are plenty more threads featuring the supporting cast that needs to be picked up in the third season of Sex Education.
Jean ends season two with a newfound appreciation for emotional intimacy with her on-again, off-again partner Jakob, thanks to her friendship with Adam’s freshly divorced mother, Maureen.
