Since Sex Education two was released back in Jan THIS YEAR (remember, before 2020 essentially nosedived?) and we have been wondering if Otis and Maeve will finally find love.

Honestly, if we don’t see the unlikely pair thriving in season three, we will revolt.

Will-they-won’t-they aside, the Netflix bosses have some brand new faces in store for season three, which is due to be released in 2021 – one being a very familiar face from Harry Potter.

Jason Isaacs, who played HP’s Lucius Malfoy, has been cast as former headmaster Mr Groff’s older and more successful brother Peter.

Oooh, drama. ☕

Jason isn’t the only new star who will appear in season three. Oh no. Jemima Kirke – who is best known for HBO’s Girls – will play the new headmistress, after Mr Groff is placed on leave by the school administrator.

Finally, artist and songwriter Dua Saleh will be making their acting debut playing non-binary student Cal, who instantly clashes with Hope’s new vision for the school.

Sex Education series three is yet to announce a launch date, but it’s tipped to be the best YET. Hurry up 2021, we honestly cannot wait.

In other telly news, Laura Whitmore revealed when Love Island UK is scheduled to return and its sadly not for a while yet.

The TV presenter chatted to Tyla about the plans for Love Island and it’s currently looking like Summer 2021. COVID-19 dependant, of course.

“It’s really all depending on coronavirus,” she said. “We’ve had more applications than ever – there’s a lot of people that want to do Love Island and there’s a lot of people that want to watch it.

“I really missed not having Love Island in lockdown – I’ve been watching the old series because I really needed to not watch the news. They’re so naughty. Hopefully we will be in a better situation next year.”

Fingers crossed, eh?
