Sex Education is coming back for season 2!

The streaming giant has renewed its critically-acclaimed British dramedy. 

The series follows Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfield), a highly inexperienced son of a sex therapist (Gillian Anderson) who decides to open an underground sex therapy clinic with an unlikely partner, Maeve (Emma Mackey).

According to Netflix, season one of Sex Education was watched by an estimated 40 million households within four weeks of its debut.

“The reception to season one has been so exciting. Seeing how people across the world have connected to characters that began as ideas in my head is incredible,” creator Laurie Dunn said in a statement. “I’m hugely grateful to every person that has taken the time to watch the series, and I can’t wait to continue this amazing journey.”

Laurie Nunn has captured the awkward teenage experience with a lot of heart and humor in Sex Education,” Cindy Holland, vice president of original content at Netflix, said in a statement. “Along with the Eleven team and executive producer and director Ben Taylor, she’s created a universally relatable series that has resonated with our members around the world.”

In addition to Anderson, Butterfield and Mackey, the series also starred Ncuti Gatwa, Aimee-Lou Wood, Connor Swindells, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Tanya Reynolds and Patricia Allison.
