Netflix has just dropped the trailer for 'Sex Education' season two

Netflix has just dropped the trailer for season two of Sex Education, and we couldn't be more excited.

The much-anticipated second season of the coming-of-age show will officially be released later this month. It follows Otis (played by Asa Butterfield), whose mom is a sex educator in every sense of the word, and his life at the fictional Moordale Secondary School in England.

The second season's trailer opens with the teenage pupils sitting down to a sex education lesson, which just so happens to be taught by Otis' mom Dr. Jean Milburn (played by Gillian Anderson). Addressing a room of giddy and hormonal teens, she says: "I'm here to start an open conversation about S.E.X". Obviously.

Watch the trailer for yourself below: 

The show's synopsis reads: "In season 2, as a late bloomer Otis must master his newly discovered sexual urges in order to progress with his girlfriend Ola whilst also dealing with his now strained relationship with Maeve.

"Meanwhile, Moordale Secondary is in the throes of a Chlamydia outbreak, highlighting the need for better sex education at the school and new kids come to town who will challenge the status quo. Maeve and Aimee's BFF relationship is stronger than ever since Aimee ditched 'the Untouchables'.

"Eric notices his new-found self-confidence attracting unfamiliar kinds of attention. Adam is at military school, still conflicted by his feelings for Eric."

The synopsis continues: "Lily has hit pause on her sexual endeavors to focus on her creative talents and finds a newfound friend in Ola.

"Jackson is forced to flex his mental rather than physical muscle and is still buckling under the pressure from his parents to succeed.

"Jean and Jakob's relationship is discovered and they have to learn how to operate as a blended family. Jean forms an unlikely connection with Mrs. Groff and a friendship between the two women begins to form."

After the release of the first season last year, the show has won widespread praise for its honest and relatable portrayal of a number of issues including sexuality, relationships, and identity.

Cindy Holland, Netflix's Vice President of Original Content, added: "Laurie Nunn has captured the awkward teenage experience with a lot of heart and humor in Sex Education.

"Along with the Eleven team and executive producer and director Ben Taylor, she's created a universally relatable series that has resonated with our members around the world."

Sex Education season two hits Netflix on January 17.
