Netflix Dropped A Teaser For Sex Education S3 & The New Headteacher Kinda Has Umbridge Vibes

Sex Education

After three million, billion, gazillion years, Netflix has finally blessed us with the teaser for Sex Education season 3. Strap yourselves in because this isn’t your average teaser.

Instead of a stock standard teaser trailer, Netflix has given us an advertisement for Moordale Secondary, following last year’s unfortunate chlamydia outbreak. New year, new school, new vibe… if that vibe was kind of creepy, but overall positive (???). You’ll get what I mean in a minute or two.

And this time, new headteacher Hope Hadden (Jemima Kirke!!!) welcomes us back to our favourite high school. She will either be a very strict, but very cool headteacher or Dolores Umbridge 2.0.

The synopsis is as follows: “It’s a new year, Otis (Asa Butterfield) is having casual sex, Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) and Adam (Connor Swindells) are official, and Jean (Gillian Anderson) has a baby on the way. Meanwhile, new headteacher Hope (played by Jemima Kirke) tries to return Moordale to a pillar of excellence, Aimee (Aimee Lou Wood) discovers feminism, Jackson (Kedar Williams-Stirling) gets a crush and a lost voicemail still looms. Prepare for commitment animals, alien phenomena, vulva cupcakes, and much more of Madam Groff.”


Wow, even the memory of that bloody season 2 finale still pains me to my very core. Will Otis and Maeve (Emma Mackey) continue to play will-they-won’t-they until the end of time? Probably!

We can also expect some other new faces on the block, including Dua Saleh as Cal, a new nonbinary student who clashes with Hope, and Jason Isaacs – AKA Lucius Malfoy – as Peter Groff.

Peter is Mr Groff’s (Alistair Petrie) “more successful/less modest older brother”.

Sex Education season 3 premieres September 17 on Netflix. We are so damn close, friends – so close. 

Is that not the creepiest ad you’ve ever seen for a high school? But also, WHERE IS ERIC? We know he’s in season 3, but why isn’t he in the teaser? Am I reading too much into this because I’m too invested in it? Yes!

Sex Education seasons 1 and 2 are streaming now on Netflix.
