What is the Sex Education season 4 potential release date? We discuss the Netflix series and its near future!
Sex Education has been popular since it was first released on Netflix in January 2019. The show, according to Netflix, is about “Otis Milburn, a socially awkward high school student who lives with his sex therapist mother, Jean.” The British comedy-drama follows a group of students, parents, and staff at Moordale Secondary School. The cast includes Asa Butterfield, Emma Mackey, Gillian Anderson, Connor Swindells, Ncuti Gatwa, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Mimi Keene, and Aimee Lou Wood.
This article discusses when the next season might release, what it will be about, and who will be in it.
Is there going to be a Sex Education season 4?
In September 2021, Netflix announced that Sex Education would have a fourth season just a week after season 3 premiered.
What is the Sex Education season 4 potential release date?
They have yet to confirm a date for the fourth season’s release date yet but based on posts from the cast on social media and information shared in interviews, it’s likely we may not see it until late 2022 or early 2023. The first season was released in January 2019, and the second in January 2020. While the third season was delayed until September 2021 because of the pandemic, it’s possible they may return to their original January release schedule for season 4.
What will season 4 of Sex Education be about?
The official synopsis reads:
“Following the closure of Moordale Secondary, Otis and Eric now face a new frontier – their first day at Cavendish Sixth Form College. Otis is nervous about setting up his new clinic, whilst Eric is praying they won’t be losers again. But Cavendish is a culture shock for all the Moordale students – they thought they were progressive but this new college is another level. Over in the US, Maeve is living her dream at prestigious Wallace University, being taught by cult author Thomas Molloy. Otis is pining after her, whilst adjusting to not being an only child at home, or the only therapist on campus.”
It certainly will be a somewhat different season with a new location for our beloved characters. Aimee Lou Wood, who plays Aimee Gibbs on the show, said, “The characters feel like they’re in very new territory because they literally are, they’re at a new school. A lot of our feeling slightly off-center is actually also just because of what is happening in the story, which is that they are [at] a new school.”
Are there any cast changes for season 4?
The cast is definitely being shaken up for season 4. This is definitely natural due to the show centering around a group of young people, meaning that people will age out of the show. Simone Ashley will not be returning as Olivia, perhaps because she’s now tied to another Netflix show, Bridgerton.
Patricia Allison and Tanya Reynolds will not return as Ola and Lily and Rakhee Thakrar will not be returning as teacher Emily either.
Emma Mackey, who plays Maeve, will have a smaller role in the fourth season as her character has moved to the United States. Mackey had a role this year in Kenneth Branagh’s Death on the Nile and is the titular lead in the upcoming February release Emily. Perhaps this reduced role will allow her more time for film projects.
One exciting addition to the show has already been announced on the Netflix UK & Ireland account. Dan Levy, known for playing David on Schitt’s Creek alongside his father Eugene Levy, is joining the team as a teacher, Mr. Molloy. Other additions to the cast include: Reda Elazouar, Thaddea Graham, Alexandra James, Anthony Lexa, Bella Maclean, Felix Mufti, Marie Reuther, and Imani Yahshua.
