Turns out watching teenagers is a whole lot more fun than actually being a teenager. Netflix just announced it's renewing Sex Education for a second season. Viewers adored all the awkwardness of season one and are eager for more. The show is on track to be watched by more than 40 million members worldwide in its first four weeks, according to Netflix. Puberty is apparently very profitable.
Production on season two is set to begin this spring in the U.K., and Netflix is promising eight more episodes of Otis and the gang. The streaming service applauded Sex Education creator Laurie Nunn for capturing "the awkward teenage experience with a lot of heart and humor."
In the series, 16-year-old Otis Milburn (played by Asa Butterfield) decides to put everything his sex therapist mother (Gillian Anderson) has taught him over the years to use in the form of an underground sex therapy clinic at his high school. The catch? Otis may sound like he knows what he's talking about but has no real-life experience of his own.
For Nunn, the reception to the show's first season has been fulfilling. "Seeing how people across the world have connected to characters that began as ideas in my head is incredible," she said in a statement. "I’m hugely grateful to every person that has taken the time to watch the series, and I can’t wait to continue this amazing journey." And, we can't wait to binge on season two of Sex Education.
