Netflix has announced the finishing of season 3 of Sex Education, a British comedy and drama series about sexuality set up in a British Secondary School. The series gained critical acclaim and recognition for its depiction and portrayal of such a sensitive topic, which is generally ignored on mainstream entertainment platforms.
The series is not your typical sex comedy rather a teen drama where the kids are a little reckless and go through a series of sexual misadventures educating the generation to which they belong and the adults.
Season one of the show premiered on 11 January 2019 and instantly became a huge success on Netflix, gained a lot of praise, and was a commercial hit too, since it hit 40 million viewers streaming it after the debut of the first season. With the whole buzz around it, the second season was released a year later, on 17 January 2020.
