Let's talk about sex

The hit teen comedy Sex Education returns for more of everything you wanted to know about but were afraid to ask.

Sex Education tells the story of Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfiled), a socially awkward high school student who lives with his sex therapist mother, Jean (Gillian Anderson). 

In season 1 Otis and his friend, Maeve Wiley (Emma Mackey), set up a sex clinic at school to capitalise on his intuitive talent for sex advice. Now, in season 2, as a late bloomer, Otis must master his newly discovered sexual urges in order to make progress with his girlfriend, whilst also dealing with his now strained relationship with Maeve. Meanwhile, Moordale Secondary is in the throes of a chlamydia outbreak, highlighting the need for better sex education at the school, and new kids come to town who challenge the status quo.

Join Otis, as he learns to grow personally and socially, with many funny and moving hiccups along the way, when Sex Education Season 2 launches on Netflix on Jan 17.
