“No. It’s see you soon,” When Otis bids Maeve farewell as she prepares to fly to America for her studies.

Sex Education Season 4: When will it release on Netflix?
Yes, Sex Education Season 4 will return to your television screen, but not this month. You might have to wait a bit longer as the filming of the episode is still underway, and it seems like the production has not reached its concluding stage. Hence, it seems impossible that the show will return this year at least. On the other hand, at Netflix’s Tudum global fan event, the network officially confirmed that the next season of Sex Education will debut sometime in the summer of 2023.
The exact release date of the show has not been disclosed as of December 5, 2022. If we were to guess, we suspect Netflix is lining up Sex Education season 4 for a September 2023 release, considering the last season came out in September 2021. Of course, this is just speculation, and the fans should wait and keep a closer eye on the social media handles of the show to know about all the latest details and updates.

Sex Education Season 4: What changes are to be expected in the new season?
The official synopsis of the series is as follows, “Following the closure of Moordale Secondary, the students are navigating new territory at the high-tech and progressive Cavendish Sixth Form College. It’s every health and wellness nut’s dream with yoga on the lawn, a strong sustainability vibe, and even a rival sex therapist on campus. This rivalry isn’t the only thing bothering Otis, as he’s also juggling a long-distance relationship with Maeve. She’s living her dream at the prestigious Wallace University in the US and being taught by cult author Thomas Molloy.” In addition to this, the synopsis of the pilot episode, states, “Otis and Rose go as dates [by force] to the fundraising school dance that brings them to talking again. Eric’s fling travels and meets him by surprise. The school finds an eccentric investor. Sightings of a UFO.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the new season “will feature a mix of old and new faces as Sex Education moves on from the shuttered Moordale High in favor of a new school” and we can expect a “creative reset”. “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,” Aimee Lou Wood told Digital Spy. “Aimee, particularly, her best friend’s in America, she doesn’t have a boyfriend for the first time ever, she’s at a brand new school where she doesn’t have any mates. So there’s a lot of newness for all of the characters and I think that that does make the show feel very new.”
Aimee Lou Wood (who plays Aimee Gibbs) has opened up about how things are changing for season four. She told Digital Spy, “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. “The actress went on, “Aimee, particularly, her best friend’s in America, she doesn’t have a boyfriend for the first time ever, she’s at a brand new school where she doesn’t have any mates. So there’s a lot of newness for all of the characters and I think that that does make the show feel very new.”
On the other hand, Aimee also revealed that season four comes with different directors and different writers working behind the scenes, adding, “so it’s very, very, very new which can also be exciting.” As for new and old teammates, the actress shared, “We definitely love all the new additions, they’re all amazing, but we also definitely miss the people who exited, we really do miss them.”
