'Sex Education' Season 2 gets premiere date and three new characters; Here's what it means for Eric, Otis and Maeve
With the lack of a trailer for the upcoming season, we have only met the three new characters—Rahim, Viv, and Isaac—via photos
Ending the long and painful wait for the return of 'Sex Education', Netflix has finally announced that the teenage British cringe comedy is returning with new episodes on January 17, 2020.
This news closely follows the announcement that three new major characters have been introduced to the story set in Moordale Secondary School. We are definitely excited to see what Otis (Asa Butterfield), Maeve (Emma Mackey) and Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) are up to, obviously, but what these three new characters mean for their story remains to be seen.
With the lack of a trailer for the upcoming season, we have only met the three new characters—Rahim, Viv, and Isaac—via photos. And let's just say we are going to hear stories about more underrepresented communities in the episodes to come. Rahim is played by actor Sami Outalbali, while Viv is played by Chinenye Ezeudu, and Isaac by George Robinson.
Maeve, who has always put a wall between herself and other people, just realized her feelings for Otis when we last saw her, only to realize that he is with Ola (Patricia Allison) now. This will certainly cause some problems while managing their flourishing sex therapy business. Meanwhile, Otis is in his first relationship and has experienced the joys—or lack thereof—of masturbation for the first time. Will this have an impact on his therapy sessions?
Eric nearly got his happily ever last year after his reformed bully Adam (Connor Swindells) expressed his interest in him. However, Adam has been packed off to a military school, and we still don't how their relationship will be impacted by this. We are hoping for them to still be a couple but, for this realistic British show, that may just be wishful thinking.
We will find all the answers when 'Sex Education' Season 2 premieres on Friday, January 17.
