This year may have started out as a flaming hellscape in which all our greatest fears are coming through on a near daily basis, but hey, at least we still have television. One of last year’s best and brightest shows, Sex Education, is returning for its second season on Netflix on January 17. By the looks of the trailer, we’re in for a treat. A sexy treat.
Last we left the kids at Moordale Secondary, local flamboyant gay boy living his best life Eric Effiong (Ncuti Gatwa) stood up to his bully Adam Groff (Connor Swindells), the abundantly endowed son of the school headmaster. Their animosity turned to attraction, but just as they were on the verge of getting something going, Adam’s dad shipped him off to military school in the finale.
So Season 2 picks up with Adam handling a big gun…
…and Eric getting cocked all his own. There’s a hot new French boy in school who’s actually making a bowl cut work, so clearly Eric is smitten.
And, thank god, the new boy wants to take a ride on the Effiong Express.
Where will this leave Eric and Adam? Is there even an “Eric and Adam”?
Also, how is Gillian Anderson still snatching and pulling all this D?
We’ll hopefully get answers to these and other burning questions when the second season of Sex Education premieres January 17. Check out the trailer for a taste.
