It won't be long now until you can continue Sex Education with Netflix. The fan-favorite comedy returns for a season two of eight episodes on Friday, Jan. 17 on Netflix. The season two premiere comes more than a year after the first season dropped on the streamer in January 2019.

The premiere date was announced through a mural in London featuring Otis, Eric, Jean and the rest of the Sex Education folks. See the mural above.

Starring Asa Butterfield as Otis, a high schooler who uses his sexual expertise to help out his classmates, Sex Education was embraced by viewers. Netflix said the show had more than 40 million viewers within a month.

When season one ended, Otis had a breakthrough with his own sexual urges and now in season two he must master them to make progress with his girlfriend, Ola. Season two will also features him dealing with his strained relationship with Maeve. Look for a Chlamydia outbreak at school, which makes people think there needs to be better sex education at school. Enter Jean? Meanwhile, Adam was sent to military school after beginning a romance with Eric.

"The reception to season one has been so exciting. Seeing how people across the world have connected to characters that began as ideas in my head is incredible," creator Laurie Dunn said in a statement when season two was announced. "I'm hugely grateful to every person that has taken the time to watch the series, and I can't wait to continue this amazing journey."
