Sex Education – 91% is one of the most interesting series of Netflix. While other titles for teens are dedicated to treating the sex lives of their protagonists as if it were mature, beautiful and sexy, the show created by Laurie Nunn tries to be more realistic by exposing the oddities and insecurities of that age. Also, the cast is quite diverse in every way and that always helps the audience feel fairly represented on screen. After a long wait, fans of the series are eager for the premiere of the third season that will arrive on the platform on September 17.

Asa Butterfield plays Otis, the son of a sex therapist (Gillian Anderson) who begins to give advice on the subject to the rest of his schoolmates. In addition to the romantic life of the protagonist, with ups and downs in his relationship with Maeve (Emma Mackey), Sex Education – 91% shows us the sexual growth of other quite interesting characters. All kinds of uncensored topics are touched upon, from masturbation and sexual preferences to abortion and the effects of sexual abuse.
Like any good dramedy, Sex Education knows how to handle moving moments very well; For example, the scene where all the girls accompany Aimee, who suffered public abuse, to take the bus was one of the most talked about last season and started a whole debate on social networks about how common it is to suffer from this type of situations. Likewise, a lot of what happens with Eric (Ncuti Gatwa), who gets beaten up for his sexual preference, is a good mix of humor and maturity. Before the new episodes are released, Netflix released a new trailer that makes the transition of the series clear:
Check out the trailer here:
At the end of last season we saw the relationship between Otis and Maeve get complicated once again, this time by the interference of a new character who has his own plans. The advance shows us the distance between the protagonists, but their inevitable connection. We can also appreciate some scenes about Eric and his new relationship with Groff (Connor Swindells), the former school bully who now seems to have problems with his classmates for declaring his love for the boy.

The most important thing about this third season is that the school itself will undergo an obvious change, represented by the character of Hope Haddon (Jemima Kirke). Apparently, the school’s very public sex education has given it a bad name with other schools, so we are introduced to a new director who will try to change the direction and prestige of the institution. The trailer shows us how they will try to return to a basic teaching and censorship, where sex is considered dangerous and immoral. At some point in the trailer Maeve tells Otis that things can’t go on like this, but he no longer has an interest in continuing his alternative work as a teen sex therapist.
The school now requires a uniform and the repression in the classrooms does not take long. But the followers of Sex education they know these characters very well and it is not surprising that everything points to a school revolution, although there is still much to discover.
Despite being a much loved series, the second season of Sex Education was criticized by some for repeating patterns in the protagonists’ relationships, especially because the rest of the characters have much more realistic stories. With all the new content from Netflix, and now that the platform has no qualms about canceling its projects, it is important that these episodes present something different that at the same time serves as a platform for a possible fourth season. The biggest benefit of this series is how much people talk about it on social media, so if they manage to maintain that popularity we will almost certainly see more of it in the near future.
