If you're a fan of teen comedies and edgy coming-of-age tales like Big Mouth and Atypical, you'll love Netflix's brand new series Sex Education. This show stars a cast of brilliant young actors depicting a gang of high school characters who prove to be much deeper than their superficial and trope-like packaging.

There's a varsity jacket-wearing jock who's the star of the student body, a gang of perfectly bitchy mean girls that terrorize the school, a rebellious punk girl with badly died pink hair, a sassy gay best friend — and of course, the protagonist, an awkward sensitive boy who just can't seem to get it right with any girls.
