Both Netflix and the creator of ‘Sex Education’, Laurie Nunn, might be in favour of cancelling ‘Sex Education’ after season 3. Will we say goodbye to Moordale High School, forever?
There is a difference between the concept of highly enjoyable and binge-worthy content and if you don’t know it, here it is.
Netflix’s show ‘Sex Education’ caters to both of those needs and apart from being highly enjoyable and binge-worthy, it makes the real world melt away in the landscape of lots of green all around you.

‘Sex Education’ works so well that it is almost annoying. An amalgamation of heartfelt teen anxiety, embarrassing sexual experiences, and really handsome handymen, its graphic and raunchy depiction is a “woke” Netflix show that has found the right audience in Netflix’s algorithm.
So, why is ‘Sex Education’ coming to an end with Season 3?
It’s time to get physical: ‘Sex Education’
‘Sex Education’, purely a dramedy, reaches a new pillar of awkwardness displayed beautifully by lead actor Asa Butterfield who plays Otis Milburn. Otis, a teenager who is not only not a very popular guy at school but is also forever shadowed by the dread of his mother being a sex-therapist. A mother who has no inhibitions about sex or a long line of one night stands.
The first episode hits you with a wave of emotions, here is a high school kid, Otis, teaming up with Maeve Wiley (super scary school outcast) to start a sex clinic. But this premise barely scratches what ‘Sex Education’ is really about.
Under the veil of partnership that Otis and Maeve share, are high school kids concerned with the unknown territory of transphobia, pornography, asexuality, and intergalactic alien sex. And in Otis, the audience sees an empathetic teenager willing to listen to everyone and anyone without an ounce of judgment.
And under that very veil, millions of people all over the world watching ‘Sex Education’ feel seen, heard and included.
So, why is Netflix cancelling the show after season 3?
‘Sex Education’ to bid adieu after Season 3
The decision to bid adieu to ‘Sex Education’ might not be something that Netflix has decided. Show creator Laurie Nunn has been noted saying that the series could come to a close after its third season as the kids will be ready to graduate high school.
As the show explores how outside assumptions affect one’s self-worth, it also shows that if these issues are not dealt with in the formative years, it can have harrowing effects on people.
And, in the past two years, the show has dealt with heavy topics like abortion, sexual assault, house-wife isolation, transphobia, and the anxiety of being a teenager, unlike anything we’ve ever witnessed on television before.
As the final season of ‘Sex Education’ nears, Laurie Nunn feels like it is the best point to end a journey which has been nothing short of fearless, new-age television that only Netflix can commission.
But what is season 3 of ‘Sex Education’ going to be about?
‘Sex Education’ Season 3: What will it be about?
‘Sex Education’ Season 2 saw the end and beginning of many relationships. Otis had broken up with Ola after embarrassing her, Maeve, and himself at a party. Eric who spent the entirety of the second season in a love triangle chose his former bully Adam over boyfriend Raheem.
The final and third season of ‘Sex Education’ will witness the kids of Moordale High School graduating and moving on from the school that taught them self-worth and acceptance of everyone, even those who are unlike us.
Well, it is one show we will be sad to let go of. It remains to see if Otis and Maeve find their way to each other. Will they be just friends or more?
