Sex Education (Netflix) - Asa Butterfield, Emma Mackey, Gillian Anderson, Ncuti Gatwa





Today, Netflix unveils the premiere date and the first images of Sex Education, a distinctively honest and witty look at the universally awkward coming-of-age experience. Launching globally with eight, one-hour episodes on January 11, 2019, the dramedy delivers a healthy dose of nostalgia, taking you back to your high school days, with a fresh postmodern take on young adult life, friendships, and attitudes towards sex, identity, love and everything in between. Set in the fictional English town of Moordale and shot entirely in Wales, UK, Sex Education is a contemporary British love-letter to the classic American high-school story starring Asa Butterfield ("Ender's Game," "Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children" and Martin Scorsese's "Hugo") as Otis Milburn, the only child of two sex therapists, and award-winning actress Gillian Anderson ("The X-Files," "American Gods," "The Spy Who Dumped Me") as Jean Milburn, his mother, a larger-than-life sex therapist with no filter. Newcomers Ncuti Gatwa and Emma Mackey star in key roles throughout the series -- Gatwa as Otis' best friend "Eric" and Mackey as "Maeve," the mastermind behind Otis' underground sex therapy clinic. The series also features Kedar Williams-Stirling ("Jackson Monroe"), Aimee-Lou Wood ("Aimee Gibbs") and Connor Swindells ("Adam Groff") as Otis, Maeve and Eric's Moordale classmates.

Agreed -I've watched the first 2 and liked it, I'm a little confused at how it's like a mashup of UK School stuff and US School Stuff.

Gillian Anderson is great!

Yea, this seems much more American than other UK things I've seen in the past.
