The trend suggested a release date of early next year. But then, the pandemic hit the world. As a result, the production on season three was halted. Of course, Sex Education wasn’t an exception to it. However, recent reports suggest that the team is good to resume production as soon as August 2020.

Currently, we’re waiting for an official word on the cast of the next season. But, we have a pretty good idea about who’ll be in it. The season three announcement teaser showed multiple characters. And based on it, we expect Asa Butterfield to reprise his role of Otis. Also, we believe he will be joined by Emma Mackey as Maeve.
