Netflix has announced the return date for Sex Education.

All eight episodes of the second season will launch on January 17, 2020 – less than two months away.

The new episodes will see Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfield) and Ola Nyman (Patricia Allison) in a relationship, as Otis deals with his sexual urges. Elsewhere, Moordale Secondary has a chlamydia outbreak, reinforcing the need for better sex education at school.

Recently-released pictures have shown Maeve Wiley (Emma Mackey) and Aimee Gibbs (Aimee Lou Wood) speaking with a police officer in an interrogation room, as well as Otis and Eric Effiong (Ncuti Gatwa) staring in a wooded area.

New characters for season 2 include talented academic student Viv (Chinenye Ezeudu), new student Rahim (Sami Outalbali), and Isaac (George Robinson), who moves into Maeve's caravan park.

Gillian Anderson, Connor Swindells, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Chaneil Kular, Simone Ashley, Mimi Keene, Tanya Reynolds, Mikael Persbrandt, and James Purefoy are also among the stars returning.

"Through writing this show, I really did want to start a conversation about sex education and how it's still very lacking as part of our culture and particularly in our schools," creator Laurie Nunn recently said (via Metro).

Sex Education season 1 is currently available to stream on Netflix.
