Netflix has announced three new cast members who will be joining Sex Education for series three.
The comedy series follows the sex-obsessed teens of Moordale High School, who seek advice from the unofficial lunchtime sex therapy clinic run by students Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfield) and Maeve Wiley (Emma Mackey).
The second series saw Otis’ best friend Eric get caught in a love triangle between the new French student Rahim (Sami Outalbali) and the headmaster’s bully son Adam Groff (Connor Swindells).
The series finale saw many shocking revelations, namely Otis’ sex therapist mother Jean (Gillian Anderson) realising she was pregnant, and headmaster Mr Groff (Alistair Petrie) being placed on indefinite leave following the school’s disastrous reinterpretation of Romeo and Juliet.
Jemima Kirke (Girls) will play Hope, the new Moordale headmistress taking over from Mr Groff.
Making their television debut, the performance artist Dua Saleh will play Cal, a nonbinary student who clashes with Hope.
Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter) will star as Peter Groff, Mr Groff’s more successful and considerably less modest older brother.
Netflix has confirmed that filming for series three of Sex Education has commenced in Wales.
