Sex Education is a terrific show on Netflix. The show is based on the lives of some teenagers in high school. The show has been running flawlessly since 2019. They have given us three seasons while the third one aired in September 2021. Fans of the show like you and I are waiting eagerly for the fourth season to drop. But it does not seem likely that the show is going to drop anytime in 2022. At that point, the question becomes, what to do with the spare time?
LatestSeries is here to tell you 10 shows like Sex Education to watch, you will love these shows if you loved the show. Here is a list from ten to one:
Table of Contents
10: Please Like Me
On number ten we have a show called ‘Please Like Me.’ This is a terrific show to watch. The show follows the story of a man named Josh who is in his 20s. The show just like Sex Education is a Comedy as well as Drama. You can call it Dramedy. The basic plot of the show is that Josh realizes he is gay after his girlfriend breaks up with him. Viewers watch Josh move back into his childhood home to care for his mom, move out with his best friend Tom, and take on the dating world in his own, awkward and fumbling way.
The viewers will love this show because it also talks about tackling social norms regarding sexuality and self-expression. You can stream the show on HULU.
When you see it from an objective view Misfits does not seem like it has a lot in common with Sex Education. It is obvious because in Misfits we see the main characters getting powers. There is nothing of sorts in the show that we are finding similarities with. However, we need to understand that both shows have a lot of similarities at their core.
However, Misfits works for fans of the show because of the style of humor at its heart. The British brand of comedy is clear in both shows and although this has a sci-fi feel to it, it also deals with the troubling time of adolescence. Something that both of them have in common is these teenagers and their problems. You can stream it on HULU.
8: The End of The Fuc*ing World
We are talking about a show that deals with British teens and budding sexuality while delivering a bit of a twist, then The end of the fuc*ing world may be the perfect show for you. The series follows James who is a teen whose homicidal instincts are budding due to his sexuality and Alyssa who is a rebellious teen — and James’ potential first victim, who just wants to get away from the life she’s in. Literally, this is one of the best shows to watch.
They decide to go away for a trip by stealing James’s father’s car. This is a very similar show. You can stream it on NETFLIX.
7: Freaks and Geeks
In a lot of ways, it was Freaks and Geeks that paved the way for shows like Sex Education. We will agree that this show doesn’t deal with the sexual aspect of being a teenager, it does lend itself to many other things that high school students deal with.
That includes trying to fit in with the cool crowd, forming cliques, going through awkward phases, and more. Freaks and Geeks had characters with all sorts of personalities and it brought the laughs in the same way that we are looking for, a show that seriously manages to make us laugh while also portraying high school reality. You can stream it on HULU. Sex Education and this show have a lot of similarities.
6: A.P. BIO
The plot of the show is pretty simple, A.P. Bio follows former Harvard philosophy professor Jack Griffin as he reluctantly heads back to his hometown to teach A.P. Bio at his former high school after losing his job at Harvard. Jack teaches them a lot of things.
Jack is in a position of power over these young kids, and while he is teaching them, the lessons usually revolve around things like catfishing his nemesis and former coworker Miles, head of the Philosophy department at Harvard. So if you’re in need of a crass, rude, and hilarious teacher A.P. BIO might be the show for you. It still follows the story of teenagers which makes it similar to Sex Education.
The show was formerly named Scrotal Recall which is thank heavens, not the name of the show right now. Lovesick is a show about a man traipsing through his previous girlfriends after discovering he’s caught chlamydia. Or at least that’s how the series kicks off anyway. From its rather ridiculous beginning, Lovesick is a show that blossoms into a poignant tale about how to find love in this complicated and confusing age. Fans of Sex Education will adore the absolutely hilarious mishaps Dylan, the main character, and his friends manage to get themselves into while searching for love.
All this while talking about sex and healthy sex organs. You can watch the show on Netflix.
Easy is a brilliant and comedic angle into relationships of all sorts. It’s an anthology series where each season is comprised of a few stories following several different characters. So whether you’re following the married couple looking to spice up their relationship with a little bit of improvised roleplaying, the married couple looking to open up their relationship and have a little fun on tinder, or a young woman figuring out what means to be part of a relationship rather than becoming the relationship, there are plenty of stories (interwoven or not) that fans of Sex Education can look forward to.
You can stream it on NETFLIX.
Euphoria is literally the most talked-about teen show right now. Any fan of shows revolving around growing teenagers is sure to get engaged by this though they shouldn’t expect a tone that is anything like Sex Education. The show is pretty more intense. The show does not have a lot of comedy but it is more about the dark side of the same teenagers. But it is on number 3 because it talks about all those sexual, and teenage issues.
This is a gritty show that deals with some serious subject matter from drug addiction to sexual assault. The highly controversial show is also often sex-positive and features high school LGBTQ+ characters who are incredibly popular. Watch Euphoria for an intense viewing and follow it with Sex Education for something fun. They go well together. You can stream the show on HBO.
2: Fresh Meat
For the story, Fresh Meat is one of the more light-hearted shows on this list. What’s more, the characters in the series are more mature, as it’s set in a college. The plot revolves around a group of young adults moving into a shared off-campus college residence. This also means that they’re staying away from home for the first time.
While there’s the obvious sweet taste of freedom, along with it comes responsibility. As this ensemble of lovable characters discovers independence through partying, sex, and generally having a good time, they also grow closer as a group. There is an ample amount of drama and comedy to make it quite similar to Sex Education. You can stream it on Amazon Prime.
It is pretty hard to narrow down Skins in just a few words. At times it can be one of the most heart-breaking dramas you’re likely to find anywhere. At other times it can be one of the most hysterical viewing experiences an audience can find. Skins follow several groups of students as they make their way through adolescence — partying, drinking, drugs, and sex play some key roles in the lives of each group of young students.
All this makes this show the number one similar show to Sex Education. This show is dramedy at its best. You will love this show for sure if you loved Sex Education.
