Contains spoilers for Sex Education season 2.
Sex Education season two made fans laugh, cry and sometimes cringe when it hit Netflix in January and already we know the high school-set drama will be back for a third series.
Netflix announced the exciting news with a video (watch above) of Alistair Petrie, who plays Principal Groff, talking through the stories of some of the show's key characters before telling fans they'll have to see what happens next when season three airs.
That's all the detail we have so far, but here's what else we can surmise about series three...
Sex Education season 3: What will it be about?
Season two ended with Maeve (Emma Mackey) and Otis (Asa Butterfield) somewhat detached after they finally spoke about their true feelings for each other. Will they be able put aside the water under the bridge and finally become a couple in series three? Or will Maeve be more concerned by her mother's drug relapse and her sister Elsie being taken from their trailer by social services?
Jean (Gillian Anderson) discovered she's pregnant with Jakob's child shortly after the pair broke up, but will Jakob (Mikael Persbrandt) be able to forgive Jean for her kiss with Remi when he knows about the baby?
Things are finally looking up for Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) and Adam (Connor Swindells) after Adam seemed to come to terms with his sexuality and tell Eric that he really cares for him. Season three will surely explore how their relationship continues and how Adam deals with the breakdown of his family following his parents' divorce.
Sex Education season 3: Who will be in it?
Expect to see budding sex therapist Otis (Asa Butterfield) and his mum Jean (Gillian Anderson) as well as Maeve (Emma Mackey) and Eric (Ncuti Gatwa).
It's also highly likely we'll see the return of Aimee (Aimee-Lou Wood), Adam (Connor Swindells), Jackson (Kedar Williams-Stirling) and Ola (Patricia Allison) as well as the rest of the ensemble cast.
Sex Education season 3: When will it be on TV?
Netflix hasn't given a date, however given the first series hit the streaming service in January 2019 and the second aired in January 2020, it's looking plausible that series three will grace our screens in January 2021.
Sex Education seasons 1 and 2 can be streamed on Netflix now.
