What will it be about?
Oh, baby! Netflix shared a video on Twitter narrated by Mr. Groff actor Alistair Petrie detailing some of what we can expect in Season 3, but the biggest reveal Season 2 left us with is undeniably Jean Milburn's unexpected pregnancy. Given her age, Jean was shocked to hear the news, so right now it's hard to say whether she'll terminate the pregnancy or see it through, meaning another baby Oatcake would be on the way. Whatever happens it'll probably have a big effect on her and those close to her. Her relationship with Otis has been strained for quite some time because, you know, teenage angst and all, but this could alter their relationship even more. Since the father is most likely Jean's ex-boyfriend/Ola's father Jakob (Mikael Persbrandt), the pregnancy will probably bring Jean and him back together in some capacity, but TBD what that means for their relationship that ended with a lot of feelings left unsaid.
Sex Education isn't just about the Milburns, though. Things were left pretty interesting concerning Eric and Adam, as Adam professed his interest in Eric very star-crossed lovers-like in front of the whole school in the middle of their musical production of Romeo and Juliet, leaving Eric's current boyfriend Rahim (Sami Outalbali) in the dust. If they pursue a relationship, it'll be a whole different, public dynamic for them, meaning Adam will have to confront his personal shame more head-on.
Season 2 also left a pretty big cliffhanger for Maeve. While she's long been one of the most resilient characters on the show, she was left in a pretty emotional state, considering she called social services on her own mother and her friendship with Otis is still on the rocks. Otis may have fucked up every step of the way in their relationship, but at the end of the season when he tried to apologize and salvage their friendship, Maeve's neighbor Isaac (George Robinson) deleted the voicemail. Isaac definitely has his own agenda (AKA a big crush on Maeve) so he was just trying to protect her, but it's unclear how she's going to react to that, or what she would've thought about Otis' message at all. Clearly, there's still a lot of emotions between the two former business partners.
Aside from those main plot points that Season 2 left hanging for us, Sex Education will also likely return to form, exploring a handful of issues related to sex, intimacy, and adolescence through Moordale's eclectic student body. Right now, though, we'll just have to keep speculating because we've got awhile to go before we can go all the way with the third season.
Continue to check back, as we'll keep updating this post as more news regarding Sex Education Season 3 gets announced.
