Los Angeles, Nov 26 (IANS) Comedy series “Sex Education”, starring Gillian Anderson and Asa Butterfield, will be back with another chapter in January next year.

The Netflix show will return for its second season on January 17, 2020. It will explore how high school students learn to strike a balance with a roller-coaster of emotions, family, friendships and love.

“Sex Education” is about Otis Milburn, a socially awkward high school student who lives with his sex therapist mother, Jean.

In season two, as a late bloomer, Otis must master his newly discovered sexual urges in order to progress with his girlfriend Ola, and also deal with his now strained relationship with Maeve.

The second season will have eight episodes.

In an interview to IANS a while back, Gatwa, who essays role of a gay teen Eric Effiong in the show, said that the show deals with masculinity beautifully, and breaks many stereotypes.

“An important lesson to learn from the show I think is to follow your own path. Don’t waste time comparing yourself to other people because they are on a different path to you and if you keep looking over your shoulder to see what other are doing you’re going to get lost. I think another thing that’s beautiful about they show is the way it deals with masculinity and the way it has depicted boys being vulnerable, scared and searching for intimacy,” Gatwa told IANS earlier this year.

“I think it’s really important for young guys to watch this show to realise that it’s okay to cry and that when you’re vulnerable it doesn’t make you any less of a man. I think the show has a plethora of strong female characters who completely own their own narratives and don’t revolve around men, I was so excited about Aimee Gibbs (essayed by Aimee-Lou Wood) storyline where she discovers what is pleasurable to her as opposed to thinking sex is all about what the guy wants,” he added.
