Netflix Is Turning One of Its Hit Originals Into a Manga

Of the many original series that Netflix has introduced over the years, Sex Education is one of the longest running with three seasons under its belt, and a fourth already confirmed. With the series gaining continuing to gain popularity, the television show is apparently receiving its own manga adaptation and fans of the Netflix original won't have to wait long before diving into this unique take on the adventures of Otis, Maeve, and Eric, along with their other classmates.

Sex Education hasn't just hit the news thanks to this new manga, but also with the major news that actor Ncuti Gatwa, who plays Eric on the show, will be the next "Doctor" in Doctor Who. With multiple actors and actresses playing the Time Lord, thanks in part to his ability to survive egregious damage to himself by taking on a new form, Gatwa joins a long line of actors that have taken on the role over the decades.

Twitter User Manga Mogura RE shared the news that Sex Education's manga will be arriving on July 15th on the website, Comic Bridge, which will adapt the story of Otis, Maeve, and Eric as they attempt to navigate high school life while dealing with more than a few challenges in their teenage years:

Netflix itself has made a push in recent years to get a leg up in the anime market, with this year alone seeing the release of an original series via Wit Studio's Vampire in the Garden and this fall set to see the release of the next batch of new episodes for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean. While the fourth season for Sex Education has been confirmed along with the manga, there are no anime productions in the works for this comedy series, as far as we know. 

If you haven't had the opportunity to dive into the comedy that is Netflix's Sex Education, the streaming service describes the series as such:

"Insecure Otis has all the answers when it comes to sex advice, thanks to his therapist mom. So rebel Maeve proposes a school sex-therapy clinic."
