Netflix just confirmed filming on season two of Sex Education has officially started and yes, we are exciiiiiiitedddddd.

Netflix UK & Ireland shared a video on Twitter this afternoon (May 1) which showed the cast of the hit show reading the scripts for season two for the first time.

Stars including Gillian Anderson, Asa Butterfield, Emma Mackey, Connor Swindells and Ncuti Gatwa can all be seen giggling away, seemingly glad to be at the table read.

The streaming service appropriately captioned the video:

Ok it’s official, Sex Education s2 filming has started. Here’s to more wanking and more heartwarming moments in equal measure.

We love it!

Fans of course inundated Netflix with questions concerning season two’s release date.

For example, Sofia tweeted them with a smidgen of entitlement:

Are u telling me y’all just started filming now? NOW?

how long am i gonna have to wait — :((

Unfortunately Netflix didn’t have good news for Sofia, replying:

I mean s1 was only like 3ish months back so these things take time.

To be honest though, we think that’s fair enough.

The first season of the hit show followed the cast of misfits as they attempt to deal with their own sexual issues.

Butterfield’s Otis helped his peers tackle topics including body image, masturbation, foreplay, porn, ‘wankathons’, consent and image-based sexual assault.

Speaking to UNILAD, writer, Lauri Nunn, explained she wanted to debunk expectations surrounding sex in a ‘frank and funny’ way.

Discussing the character of Adam, Nunn explained:

I often take inspiration from people I know from my own life, and Adam is a combination of so many young men I’ve encountered who have been raised in a toxic male environment.

Showing his erectile dysfunction in episode one seemed like an interesting way to chip away at his macho armour and reveal he’s struggling with the pressure to be ‘normal’ as much as his peers.

I think one of the most complicated elements of sex is talking honestly about it. It can be awkward at any age, which is why encouraging more open dialogue on the subject helps break down damaging stigma.

The heart of a lot of young adult content is self-discovery and acceptance and I hope Sex Education adds to the conversation.

With a season two currently in production, it will only add more to the conversation.

The first season of Sex Education is currently streaming on Netflix.
