Sex Box is returning to Channel 4 as a three-part series.

The UK pubcaster has ordered three 60-minute episodes of the show, which first aired as a one-off on Channel 4 in 2013.

The new version of the series will be hosted by clinical sexologist Goedele Likens. UK indie ClearStory is producing and has been working with C4′s factual entertainment department on the format since the original aired.

In Sex Box, three couples with relationship troubles enter a sound-proof box to have sex and then immediately discuss their issues with the host in front of a studio audience, who will also talk candidly about their experiences.

Producers are conducting “a revealing and amusing national survey to explore the sexual appetite of the nation,” the network said in a statement. “The show promises to be a unique opportunity for people to open up about their sexual hang-ups, a coaching space for sexual experimentation, or a chance to indulge in first-time fantasies. The series aims to educate the nation in how to have the best sex ever.”

The original Sex Box special attracted 900,000 viewers to Channel 4, but an American version of the format that aired on WE tv earlier this year was pulled after five episodes.
