After we all binge-watched Sex Education in a matter of hours this year, we were left not only thoroughly entertained but hungry for more.
Well, the Netflix gods have answered our prayers with a teaser trailer for Sex Education season two, inspired by one of Mean Girls’ most iconic scenes.
The clip starts with Maeve saying, “how do I even begin to explain Otis Milburn?” Milburn’s best friend Eric chimes in and adds, “Otis Milburn is a love-making mastermind,” and Aimee suggests “that’s why his helmet is so big…it’s full of secrets.”
The trailer follows the same format of the Mean Girls scene in which various high school students explain their experiences with leader of The Plastics, Regina George. Sex Education character Lily makes the reference clear when she says, “One time, he cured my vaginismus. It was awesome.”
At less than one minute, the teaser for Sex Education season two gives little away – except for the fact it’s dropping next year. However, Netflix have also released a series of images from the upcoming series that show Ola and Lily exploring a new friendship, Maeve and Aimee in the middle of a police interrogation, and school jock Jackson with his overbearing mothers.
According to MTV News, season two of Sex Education will see Otis and Ola continue their relationship, including “figuring out the ups and downs of ‘newly-discovered sexual urges.’” MTV News also reports that in season two of the show students at Moordale will experience a “chlamydia outbreak” and “a host of new students shaking up life as the core crew know it.”
Considering sexually transmitted infections just reached an all-time high in the U.S., the topics covered in season two of Sex Education couldn’t have come at a better time.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, season one of Sex Education racked up 40 MILLION viewers in just one month. Let’s be honest, if season two is anything like the first, it’s going to be a Netflix favourite once again.
