Netflix has renewed its comedy series “Sex Education” for a second season of eight episodes. Shooting begins this Spring in the UK.
Asa Butterfield plays 16-year-old Otis Milburn, an inexperienced, socially awkward high-school student who lives with his sex-therapist mother (Gillian Anderson).
Otis is a reluctant expert on sex but comes to realize he can use his knowledge to gain status at Moordale High School, teaming up with bad-girl Maeve (Emma Mackey) to set up an underground sex-therapy clinic for fellow students.
Netflix has indicated the series is among its most popular recent originals with more 40 million members worldwide viewing it within the first month of release.
