Netflix’s British comedy teen drama titled “Sex Education that came out on Netflix in 2019 became a quick hit as it was praised and applauded by audience and critics alike for its positive take on teenage insecurities about sexualities, bodies, and mental health. The series managed to grab over 40 million viewers within the first month of its debut and since then has remained one of the prominent originals to come out from the OTT giant. Sex Education keeps doing and breaking the hearts of the audience is the constant missing relationship between Otis and Maeve’s main characters, who have feelings for each other.

What To Expect?
So far, from everything revealed by Asa Butterfield for Sex Education Season 3, it seems like we are getting a completely new and more confident Otis in the coming season with a little bit of awkwardness from the prior ones. The new confidence and more mature Otis might result from all the downfall he had during the second season as he tried to reconnect with Maeve played Emma Mackey in the finale only to get his feelings not delivered, “No Thanks” to Issac played by George Robinson.
We might also see Otis taking a look in the mirror as he figures out the reason for all this. He started Sex Therapy in the first place in an agreement with Maeve. Did he always had an attraction towards her, or was it just because he wanted to help people just like him. Anyway, we are getting a ride of our favorite teenage characters becoming more mature as the cast of the series will be seen growing up and becoming more sensitive as they learn and figure out their own insecurities and also as Butterfield revealed in the same interview with The Guardian that the show always aimed to normalize insecurities.
