Netflix’s Sex Education has commenced production on its third season
The third season of the popular Netflix series Sex Education has finished production.

Coming soon: The third season of the popular Netflix series Sex Education, featuring Asa Butterfield, has finished production. Butterfield was snapped at the show’s season two debut last year
Actor Asa Butterfield, who portrays Otis Milburn on the show, spoke with The Guardian earlier this year about what fans can expect when the show returns to the air for its third season.
‘There’s a bit of a time-jump since the season two cliffhanger,’ the actor, 23, said. ‘Otis is back at school but he’s got different things on his plate. He’s grown up a bit and become slightly more sassy. It’s been fun to portray his newfound charisma.’
Butterfield reassured fans, ‘Don’t worry, though, he’s still tragically awkward too.’
The London-born actor said that getting back to work after the pandemic-related shutdown made for ‘something of a miracle being back on set.

Butterfield said his character Otis Milburn is ‘still tragically awkward’ on the series
‘When we started, it was a bit like being let out of prison,’ he said. ‘It was the first time anyone had been in a big group of people for months and we were all overexcited.
‘We’ve slipped into the rhythm of the new normal now. To work is a blessing. I won’t take it for granted again.’
Butterfield said that the series aims to spread ‘positive messages and opens up important conversations – about sexuality, bodies, mental health.
‘It’s always difficult for parents and children to talk about these things. Our show deals with them in an authentic, lighthearted, non-judgmental way,’ he said. ‘I wish it had been around when I was a teenager.
He continued: ‘People have told me how much it’s helped them – whether it’s coming out to their parents or boosting their confidence. It reassures people that they’re not weird or alone. Everyone’s got quirks and hang-ups.’
The third season of the show will also feature a new character played by Girls alum Jemima Kirke.
