Not many TV shows can bring together discussions about toxic masculinity, self-harm, the intersect between your religious beliefs and your personal relationships, pansexuality, anxiety, bisexuality, romance for people with disabilities and still deliver a solid string of gags about unwanted erections. Sex Education is bold enough to never shy from tough topics but never too po-faced to see the funny side of teenage angst and insecurities. Season two shifts up the gears by expanding the cast and taking us beyond the class room. Asa Butterfield and Emma Mackey continue to be the beating heart of the series with staggering performances that bring an emotional weight, lightness of touch and old-fashioned sense of British cheekiness. Wood and the Sex Education writers deal with the heartbreaking and rage-inducing storyline without ever breaking the character we grew to love in season one, which brings an authenticity and only heightens our empathy for her anguish. Rhere are no weak links in this ensemble with previously minor characters like the Untouchables and the alien erotica fan Lily Tanya Reynolds coming to the fore and becoming fully fleshed.
Sex Education creators: How we made it
Sex Education season 2 review: Netflix series achieves teen drama greatness | BT TV
Although it has Asa Butterfield and Gillian Anderson among its ensemble, the teen comedy was largely filled with unknown British talent. But from day one, intrigued viewers turned into Sex Education addicts. Over 40 million households watched the show in the first four weeks. We took the vibrant and vivacious young cast to our hearts, desperately willing for happy endings and coming-of-age moments of joy. Moordale Secondary is a teenage life we all recognise - the crushing embarrassments, the heartbreak and confusion. A lot of it just came out in the moment. There was just this energy.
C, Beverly Hills, When a TV show manages to capture the essence and spirit of teenage life - and all the pain, joy and complications that it brings - the characters will firmly lodge a place in your heart. All it takes is a quick burst of the theme tune and it will immediately take you back to a time when all your insecurities and angst could be washed away for at least one hour of the day.
The show established itself as TV classic, making you cry tears of joy and laughter one scene after the next. Netflix officially confirmed a third season on February 10, , less than a month after the release of season two. Sex Education writer Laurie Nunn confirmed to Ladbible that she had started work on series three because the turnaround schedule is so tight.
