Sex Education on Netflix: When is series 2 of Sex Education coming to Netflix?

Sex Education dropped on Netflix in January and fans are already looking forward to season two, but when is it likely to stream?

Sex Education is Netflix‘s popular comedy/drama about the son of a sex therapist who becomes incredibly popular at school when he starts dispensing sex advice to his classmate. The show was originally released on the platform in January and stars the likes of Gillian Anderson, Asa Butterfield and Ncuti Gatwa.

Netflix recently announced that it had ordered a second season of the popular series and it is expected that many of the original cast members will return for the second instalment. Netflix made the announcement on the 1st Feb, just weeks after the show’s debut on the streaming service.

No date has been given for the start date of the second series, however, it is most likely to drop in 2020.  Netflix tends to work in yearly cycles so it’s likely that the new series will be ready in January 2020.

How many episodes will the second series of Sex Education have?

The first series had eight episodes of the hit show, so the second series is likely to have the same amount of episodes, however, it’s not unexpected for Netflix to fluctuate the number of shows, with a usual minimum of eight episodes – so we could end up with a 10 or even 12 episode season of Sex Education.

Laurie wrote six of the eight episodes of the first series of Sex Education.


The episodes’ timing range from 46 minutes to 52 minutes long and all of them are available to binge on the streaming platform.
