After Sex Education had a very successful season 3, Netflix had given its most beloved series a go for the next season. This happened in the month of September last year. With spectacular plot twists and one of the main leads Maeve (Emma Mackey) being set off to America, the last season left us with some major cliffhangers.
What can we expect from the Moordale High students from the next season? When will it potentially air? We have got you covered.
Here is everything you need to know about the upcoming season that could very well be the final one.
When will season four be released?
After getting an official ‘go’ for season four in September 2021, Sex Education, the production team sprung at the beginning of the shoot. However, in an interview with Digital Spy Jim Howick (playing Mr Hendricks on the show) mentioned that the show intended to shoot all the way until February next year.
From previous experience, the show’s third season killed their tradition of a January release. We all know the cons of the pandemic on production schedules. As season three premiered in September 2021, we can well argue and expect the final season to be aired possibly in September 2023.
The cast for ‘Sex Education’ season four
Would the show really have gained this much traction besides the killer plot and A* cast members? From appointing a widely diverse group of talented individuals, each bringing something new to the table, you do not need to expect anything less from the finale.
One of the most exciting new additions to the show will be Schitt Creek’s star and co-writer Dan Levy, playing the role of Thomas Molloy. He is Maeve’s mentor as she studies in the United States. Alongside will be other new members of Felix Mufti, Anthony Lexa, Alexandra James, Reda Elazouar, Bella Maclean and Imani Yahshua, amongst others.
We all know good news never comes alone. Like the cast list gets broader with the new additions, there are several older characters who we will not be seeing any longer.
Like Simone Ashley, who is now whooped up in the shoot of very successful Bridgerton’s third season. Along with Patricia Allison who plays Otis’s (Asa Butterfield) ex and kind of step-sibling, Ola Nyman. And another disheartening discontinuation by Tanya Reynolds playing the quirky Lily Iglehart. Even Mr Hendricks was unsure of his return to the show.
What changes next in ‘Sex Education’?
The last season ended with what can popularly be called a life bomb that Moordale High was closing, forcing all its students to be scattered around. A personified metaphor for nothing remains. The closing of this premise comes with an onset of decisions to be made. Will the students stick together to make this ship sail? Or will they accept their fates and give in to the tides of life?
Alongside, we are swept off with Maeve leaving to study at the prestigious Wallace University, where she is being mentored by Thomas Molloy. Adam struggles to find purpose within his education, Otis is nervous about his new clinic and school along with Eric (Ncuti Gatwa). Aimee continues to figure out how to deal with the after-effects of a sexual assault and decides to seek therapy with Otis’s mother.
Jean’s (Gillian Anderson) unexpected pregnancy made her closer to her partner until she received the DNA results and realised he was not the father. What happens to Jean next? Do she and Jakob continue to find the broken threads of their love and begin a new life together? Does she ever come clear to Jakob? Find out more about what I wish could say soon. The wait will be worth it! Here is the unofficial trailer for season 4!
All this aside, rest assured that the series is gearing up for its final season and will be back with a bang, pun intended. Catch with the last season here, and give the trailer for season three a shot!
