The sex-positive Netflix series is coming back for another round.
The series quickly gained a fanbase after debuting on Netflix in January, offering an honest depiction of the sex lives and sexual identities of teenagers. Butterfield stars as Otis, a shy 16-year-old whose mother (Anderson) is a sex therapist. Otis teams up with fellow outcast Maeve (Emma Mackey) to apply his knowledge to their classmates’ problems, and make some money.
