Jason Isaacs, known for his role as Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Pottermovies, gets a role in season 3 of Sex Education. Sudanese-American artist Dua Saleh will also be featured in the Netflix series, reports Deadline Thursday.
It is the acting debut of Saleh, who plays a non-binary student at the Moordale school and is at odds with the new director, who is played by Girls-actress Jemima Kirke.
Isaacs takes the role of the character Peter Groff, the older and more successful brother of Michael Groff, the former principal of the school central to the series.
Shooting for the third season of the British comedy series resumed in early September, having been previously delayed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Sex Education revolves around the shy Otis (played by Asa Butterfield). Together with an extroverted girlfriend, he starts a sex aid clinic in their high school, although Otis himself is still a virgin. He gives his advice based on what he receives from his mother (Gillian Anderson), who works as a sex therapist.
The second season of the series appeared on January 17, 2020. It is not yet known when the third season will be shown on Netflix.
