Netflix has dropped the trailer for Season 2 of “Sex Education,” and this year there have been some changes at Moordale Secondary — namely, a really bad chlamydia outbreak.
But have no fear — Jean Milburn (Gillian Anderson) is here. Otis (Asa Butterfield) looks on in horror as his mother stands before the school assembly to start “an open conversation about S-E-X,” which inspires one classmate to shout out, “Didn’t you wank off a courgette?” (That’s British for zucchini).
Watch the trailer above.
Season 2 premieres Jan. 17. Here are Netflix’s descriptions for both Seasons 1 and 2 to get you caught up in case you missed anything:

Some Oscar winners stand the test of time — these, not so much
By now, we all know that the film the Academy selects as the "Best Picture" of any given year is rarely the actual Best Picture, but some years it's hard to explain why they picked what they picked. Nevermind "Shakespeare in Love" beating "Saving Private Ryan," because at least "Shakespeare in Love" is a handsome production with a witty script. Nevermind "Dances with Wolves" beating "Goodfellas," because at least "Dances with Wolves" is a respectable western.
We're taking a look at the films that we can't watch, even in a vacuum, without cringing nowadays. And when you compare them with the nominees that didn't earn the Oscar, it's just plain hard to justify why the Academy voted the way it did.
