Undoubtedly, one of the best things to have come out of Netflix in recent years is Sex Education, which is why we're beyond excited that a third season will soon be gracing screens.
From its no-nonsense, open and inclusive attitude to sex, to its idyllic countryside setting - and essentially everything Gillian Anderson ever does, it's fast become one of the nation's most beloved programmes, and excitingly — we now have a brand new teaser trailer for season 3 to feast our eyes on.
Is there a Sex Education season 3 trailer?
As of this week, we have our first video footage of the new (and old) cast members making their season 3 debut. Starring the brand new character of headmistress Mrs. Hope Haddon, played by Girls star Jemima Kirke, the cast appear in a promo video for Moordale school, where headmistress Haddon is joined by lead character Otis.
Other characters from the show that feature in the teaser include Emma Mackey’s Maeve Wiley (played by the brilliant Emma Mackey), Aimee Lou Wood as Aimee and Patricia Allison as Ola. Lily, Jackson, Cal, and a new character placed by singer Dua Saleh, also make an appearance. You can watch the teaser trailer below:
'I’m the new headmistress at Moordale, taking over from Mr. Groff to get the school back on track,' Haddon says in the video, as Otis encourages viewers to 'choose Moordale.'
With Vivienne adding: 'With a new uniform, new student body, and a new attitude, Moordale is the perfect place to grow into the fine adults we are destined to be.'
When will the third season of Sex Education be released?
The new teaser trailer comes after Netflix released several first-look pictures of the upcoming season at the end of last month, depicting the Moordale students in their brand new uniforms, as well as giving us an official season 3 release date of 17th September 2021. Meaning all our favourite characters will be back on screens in just a few short months.
Unlike the first two seasons, which both premiered in January, filming was delayed due to the pandemic, which is why season 3 of the much-loved show didn't start production until September 2020 (usually starting in April) and still hasn't hit screens.
Everything we know about Sex Education season 3
Back in a January 2021 interview with The Guardian, Asa Butterfield (aka lead character Otis) revealed that, unlike the first two seasons, the third season will not pick up immediately where season 2 left off.
'There’s a bit of a time-jump since the season two cliffhanger,' he explained. 'Otis is back at school but he’s got different things on his plate. He’s grown up a bit and become slightly more sassy.'
Adding: 'It’s been fun to portray his newfound charisma. Don’t worry, though, he’s still tragically awkward too.'
In September 2020, Netflix announced that, alongside the return of our favourite characters Otis, Maeve and Eric, a new swathe of exciting recognisable faces will be joining the cast, including Jessa from Girls and Lucius Malfoy from the Harry Potter franchise.
Jemima Kirke — also known as the interminably enchanting Jessa in hit HBO series Girls (and Lena Dunham's childhood best friend) — will be appearing as headmistress Hope, a former Moordale student who returns to the school, during Mr Groff's absence, determined to turn it back into the 'pillar of excellence' it once was.
Alongside Kirke, Jason Isaacs (aka Lucius Malfoy) will star as Peter Groff — the more successful and arrogant older brother of former head teacher Mr. Groff — who has been putting him up since his marital separation.
Singer Dua Saleh is also joining the cast for her acting debut, playing 'Cal –a non-binary student who immediately clashes Hope’s fresh vision for the school.'
Season 2 saw the introduction of various new characters, like Anne-Marie Duff starring as Maeve's mum, Sami Outalbali as French student Rahim, Chinenye Ezeudu as Viv and George Robinson as Isaac, so we can't wait to see how the newest cast members will fit in, along with what all our old favourites like Otis, Eric, Maeve, Eric and Aimee have been up to.
The first two seasons of Sex Education are available to watch on Netflix now.
