Since Sex Education season two was released back in January last year (remember, before 2020 essentially nosedived?), we have been wondering if Otis and Maeve will finally find love.

Honestly, if we don't see the unlikely pair thriving in season three, we will revolt.

Will-they-won't-they aside, the Netflix bosses have some brand new faces in store for season three, which is due to be released in 2021 – one being a very familiar face from Harry Potter.

Jason Isaacs, who played HP's Lucius Malfoy, has been cast as former headmaster Mr Groff's older and more successful brother Peter.

Oooh, drama. ☕

Jason isn't the only new star appears in season three. Oh no. Jemima Kirke – who is best known for HBO's Girls – plays the new headmistress, after Mr Groff is placed on leave by the school administrator.

Finally, artist and songwriter Dua Saleh makes their acting debut playing non-binary student Cal, who instantly clashes with Hope's new vision for the school.

Sex Education series three premiered on Netflix on 17 September and, if you ask us, it's the best series YET.

If you’re wondering where Sex Education is set, Gillian Anderson, who plays Jean Millburn has revealed that the location of Moordale High School and the surrounding area is kept vague on purpose, with producers using elements of both British and American high school experiences.

Gillian explained, “There is a bit of both worlds, decidedly, in the series, and the aim and the hope is that Americans won’t notice. For instance, the Brits may notice that they are throwing American footballs, whereas the Americans won’t notice that that might be strange for people speaking with British accents.”

Despite the mixture of British and American influences, the show is actually made in the UK and is filmed at the University of South Wales’ Caerleon Campus.
