Screenwriter Laurie Nunn said earlier that she finds it exciting to get started, because of all expectations. “It is unbelievable that people all over the world felt so connected with the characters that emerged as ideas in my head. I am enormously grateful to everyone who has taken the time to watch the series, and I cannot wait to continue this great journey. “
In the series we follow 16-year-old Otis, played by Asa Butterfield, whose mother is a sex therapist. Otis is having a hard time in high school, but he knows how to work himself up the social ladder by practicing his mother’s profession among his fellow students. This produces enormously funny scenes in which sex is talked about openly. His mother Jean, played by Gillian Anderson, does not make life any easier for the teenager.
