Netflix has announced the new members who will be joining the cast of ‘Sex Education’ in season 3. Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy in Harry Potter series), Jemima Kirke (Girls), and Dua Saleh will be the new faces to join the Netflix’s British teen comedy-drama series.
Isaacs will play Peter Groff, Mr. Groff’s (Alistair Petrie), more successful and not very modest older brother, who Mr. Groff has been staying within the wake of his separation from Mrs. Groff.
Kirke will play former Moordale student and new headmistress Hope, who plans to turn Moordale back into the pillar of excellence it’s always been.
Saleh, in their acting debut, will portray Cal, a nonbinary student at Moordale, who instantly clashes with Hope’s new vision for the school.
Kirke and Isaacs are guest stars, and Saleh is recurring. Sex Education marks Saleh’s acting debut.
Season 2 of the show ended with Jean’s pregnancy.
Dealing with the aftermath of her break-up from Jakob, as well as her strained relationship with Otis (Asa Butterfield), Jean had an emotional final few episodes.
In the season finale, she was suffering from heart pains and headed to the GP for a check-up.
It seemed like she was suffering from heartbreak after her split from Jakob. However, after some tests, it was also revealed Jean was pregnant with his child.
While Jean did not tell him this in the finale, it seems likely this could play a huge part in season three of the show.
Production began earlier this month on Season 3 in Wales for premiere in 2021.
Season 3 is directed by Ben Taylor and Runyararo Mapfumo. Laurie Nunn, Ben Taylor, and Jamie Campbell are also Executive Producers on the series.
Created and written by Laurie Nunn and produced by Eleven, Sex Education is about Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfield), a socially awkward high school student who lives with his sex therapist mother, Jean, played by Gillian Anderson.
