Here are 5 reasons why you should binge-watch ‘Sex Education’ right now

Netflix recently renewed ‘Sex Education’ for season 2 and you better believe the hype ‘cause it is totally this year’s best high school series!

So, in line with this, we’ve listed down 5 things that will get you hooked on the town’s newest binge–obsession. 

Gillian Anderson is a hot and cool mom!


You might recall her from the cult tv classic, X-Files, during the 90s but she’s no Scully in this series. Because in this show, Anderson plays Otis’s (Asa Butterfield)  feisty, single mother – who also happens to be a dedicated sex therapist.

The show has a very relatable lead actor


Otis Milburn (Butterfield) is a not-so-typical teenager.

First, he’s a virgin. Second, he has a sex therapist for a mom. And third, he has a problem masturbating (Basically, he can’t do it). But the thing is, his lack of “interesting” qualities makes him perfect for the show – and makes him one character to watch out for!

You will love Maeve’s angst


If you like movie or tv characters with ‘don’t f*ck with me’ attitudes, then you will love Maeve (Emma Mackey). And even though she will face difficult situations in the series, you will still end up liking her strong and fierce persona. 

You’ll enjoy Eric’s fabulousness


Eric (Ncuti Gatwa)  is the queer son of conservative immigrants and a very dear friend to Otis.

The breakout star Ncuti Gatwa gave a stellar performance in this hit show – and it’s no wonder why many of the fans praised his performance.

Your jaw will drop at Adam’s ‘two coke cans of awesomeness’


You will have a love/hate relationship with Adam (Connor Swindells) on this show.  But all will be resolved when you see his ‘Two coke cans’ of awesomeness. LOL 😂
