Season 3 was originally due to begin filming in May, but the plans were put on ice as Wales remained in lockdown. Sex Education producer Eleven and its new parent company Sony Pictures Television had set a hopeful target of August to resume production because the UK show is reliant on filming during the longer days of British summer.
Wayne Garvie, Sony’s president of international production said in July that he was optimistic about production getting back underway, but warned that there will be hiccups across the industry as producers wrangle with the fast-moving COVID-19 crisis. “It will be different. The next couple of years will be tricky, there’s going to be a few false starts — productions starting up and then stopping again — it’s going to be a bit messy. But then it will come back,” he told Deadline.
Sex Education is written and created by Laurie Nunn and is directed by Ben Taylor, Alice Seabright and Sophie Goodhart. Jamie Campbell, Laurie Nunn and Ben Taylor are executive producers. It is produced by Eleven Film.
