Given the fact that the production is already underway, we might see the new season somewhere around 2021. But again with the current pandemic situation, nothing can be said for sure as of this moment.
The Plot Of The Series
The first series follows the story of Otis Milburn who is an insecure teenager. Otis is ambivalent about sex even though his mother is a sex therapist. His mother is direct and also honest about all aspects of sexuality. After assisting the school bully with his sexual performance anxiety, Otis sets up a sex advice business. Otis sets the business with Maeve to help their fellow students with their sexual problems.
In the second series, we see Otis after securing a relationship with Ola. Ola is a hit with the reality and also pressures of a high school romance. Their romance is further tested by the introduction of new students who challenge the status quo at Moordale High. A chlamydia outbreak at the school in the second season also causes students to question and struggle with topical issues.
