Keep on reading to find out more...
Sex Education became one of Netflix's unlikely smash hits.The British comedy-drama, created by Laurie Nunn, took the world by storm when it hit our screens in 2018.
The show centers on Otis, the awkward, slightly nerdy son of a sex therapist.Otis decides to go into business with Maeve (an edgy girl who he has a massive crush on) and give out sex advice to the teenagers at their school.
The show has attracted praise for being funny, heartfelt, and inclusive.There’s no doubt that it has been a smash hit with viewers, with many eager to binge their way through the episodes.
Sex Education plays into the high school stereotypes we all know...The troublemaker, the jock, the nerds, the outcasts… But it does a great job of subverting those clichés and making its characters three-dimensional.
While it may contain its fair share of student stereotypes...The show tackles a range of hard-hitting and important issues including abortion, sexual assault, sexuality, and race.

Many have described the show as a "bizarre mix of UK and US stuff."
