'Sex Education' Season 3: Release date, spoilers and all about hit Netflix show
‘Sex Education’ is undoubtedly one of the finest Netflix shows out there. Season 1 of the show was so well rendered that adults could have learned so much from it. Meanwhile, Season 2 was much more than educating people about sex. It was all about self-awareness, compassion, and love.
The best thing about the show is that not a single moment is wasted on meaningless conversations and every single character is developed and gets equal screen time. The show revolves around a socially awkward high school student Otis (Asa Butterfield), who doesn’t have any experience in the lovemaking department and gets guidance on the top from his mother Jean (Gillian Anderson), who is a sex therapist. He decides to improve his status in the school with his knowledge and teams up with Maeve to open an underground sex therapy clinic to deal with their classmates’ problems.
