Netflix has given good news to fans by announcing the renewal of the show for a third season. But, is season 3 going to be the last of the show.
Nunn Started Writing The Third Season Before Its Official Announcement
Laurie Nunn, the showrunner always had faith that the show would return for season 3. The showrunner said that ‘I have started writing season three of the show, but that’s just a very natural part of the process because we work on such tight schedule, and season three has not been greenlit yet or officially approved.’
Release Date Of Season 3
There is no official exact release date of season 3 of the show. But by looking at the release date of season 1 and season 2, we expect season 3 of Sex Education to release in January 2021.
Cast Of Season 3
Most of the cast members of the show are expected to return in season 3 of the show. These include Asa Butterfield as Otis, Gillian Anderson as Jean, Ncuti Gatwa as Eric, Emma Mackey as Maeve and others.
There Is A Possibility Of Season 4
The showrunner also said that she hopes the series can continue beyond that potential third season. She said that ‘I love writing these roles. It’s such a big ensemble and I believe the theme of the series, in terms of it being about sex and relationships, it actually just offers up endless story possibilities.’
Nunn added that ‘So I believe the series definitely has legs if Netflix are nice enough to let me keep writing the show and let Ben Taylor keep directing it!’
But she thinks that the show will not go on forever.
She said that ‘I always consider that teen series should maybe stop before university. Otherwise, you get to the moment where people are 30 years old and they are playing as teenagers.’
