Sex Education 2 gears up in Wales

Sex Education

A second series of Netflix’s comedy drama Sex Education starts filming shortly on location near the Welsh border.

Produced by Eleven Films, the show features Asa Butterfield as a teen who sets himself up as a sex therapist at his school, while also struggling with his own efforts to lose his virginity.

Gillian Anderson and Emma Mackey co-star.

The drama films in the Symonds Yat region of the west of England near the Welsh border, though the story itself does not have a specific setting.

Netflix organised a Penarth-based training programme for the first series of Sex Education, as part of a broader plan to help boost the UK’s crew base, with plans to shift trainees to full-time roles on the second season.

Sex Education marked the first greenlit series for writer/creator Laurie Nunn and was also the first full-length TV show for director Kate Herron.

Netflix made 40 productions in the UK through the course of 2018.
