It’s time for another session of Sex Education.

Netflix announced Monday that the highly-praised British comedy series would be premiering its second season on Jan. 17. Like the first, season 2 will consist of eight episodes.

The series follows Otis Millburn (Asa Butterfield), an awkward teenager who struggles with his mother Jean’s (Gillian Anderson) career as a sex therapist.

The description for the sophomore season, per Deadline, reads, “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,” the synopsis continues.
