What will it be about?
The final episode of Season 1 saw just as many beautiful beginnings as it did heart wrenching endings. Just as Otis and Ola (Patricia Allison) start something sweet, Maeve and Jackson (Kedar Williams-Stirling) call it quits… and Maeve realizes her newfound feelings for Otis are hopeless. And just as Adam (Connor Swindells) accepts his attraction to Eric (Ncuti Gatwa), he gets shipped off to a military academy, leaving Eric at a loss. Meaning, in Season 2 there are more than a handful of relationships we could see flourish or built upon, among a number of other things.
Season 2 will see the cast grappling with all of that. Per Netflix's press site, Otis will have to deal with his newly discovered sexual urges and relationship with Ola while also mitigating a strained relationship with Maeve, who has hit it off with Aimee. Adam is off at military school and trying to deal with his feelings for Eric, whose newfound confidence is reportedly attracting all kinds of attention. Lily has put her focus on sex aside to pursue more creative endeavors and a friendship with Ola, while Jackson still bows under pressure from his parents to succeed. Speaking of parents, let's not forget that Otis' mom Jean and Ola's father Jakob are now dating. Amidst all of that, Moordale Secondary is also deep in the throes of a Chlamydia outbreak. Yikes!
As the core of the show is Otis and Maeve’s sex clinic, it’s possible that may be a through line (even if Maeve acts a little uncomfortable around him) -- and this would open up the opportunity to further focus on side characters and even introduce new faces from Moordale. Nunn echoed this possibility in speaking to us by saying, "Series one is very much Otis' journey and I think he will again. If we're lucky enough to get a series two, we will always come back to Otis. He's a fantastic leading character but the fact that we've got this great ensemble and these amazing young actors who have also just brought so much to those characters. It just feels like they could go anywhere."
