Sex Education Season 3 Review Does Not Contain Spoilers
After the “clamadia” outbreak and lots of personal drama in everyone’s life, Moordale High is now tagged as the ‘sex school’. The students are fine with it as their lives have changed over the summer. As the synopsis mentions, Otis (Asa Butterfield) has casual sex with Ruby (Mimi Keene). Jean (Gillian Anderson) is visibly pregnant. Eric and Adam (played by Ncuti Gatwa and Connor Swindells) are officially dating and enjoying their new relationship.
Sadly, Maeve (Emma Mackey) and Otis haven’t talked the entire summer as the former didn’t get his voice message. If you remember, Isaac (George Robinson) deleted Otis’ message where he confessed to having feelings for Maeve. The major change for the students is their new headmaster Hope, played by Jemima Kirke. She’s young and makes a cool entry with a dance on the stage. But little did the students know she’s the modern version of the vicious Dolores Umbridge from Harry Potter.
Sex Education Season 3 on Netflix starts on an exciting note, and with every episode, it gets deep and emotional. A few characters show good development as they learn to express themselves, their concerns, discomfort, and emotions. While some people still don’t understand how sex works or what their mind/body wants, they know when to seek advice or consult an expert.
I don’t want to give away spoilers in my Sex Education 3 review. So I’ll make it short and sweet in discussing why I enjoyed the new season. The current season strengthens friendships, teaches characters to accept and love themselves, illustrates how to draw boundaries in any relationship, and explains why it’s vital to walk away from a relationship that’s draining.
The number of episodes is my only complaint. I wish there were another episode because everyone has become so important to the story. The writers tried to squeeze a lot into the final episode, making it feel rushed. Because of this haste to wrap things up, it isn’t as memorable as the finales of the first two seasons. That doesn’t mean it isn’t good. The climax is gratifying to some extent, heartbreaking, and full of curiosity.
Sex Education Season 3 Review: Final Thoughts
Overall, the show maintains its level of quality with an outstanding portrayal of sex, gender, race, friendships, relationships and more. The young raging hormones couldn’t be controlled to fit one’s agenda. Instead, let them be who they are. You should binge-watch it before the internet ruins some special moments for you with spoilers.
