“People deserve your whole heart, Otis. If you can’t give them that, it’s better they know. It’s the kinder thing to do.”

Sex Education Season 4: When will it release on Netflix?

Unfortunately, the new episodes will not return to Netflix in January 2023, so fans will have to wait a little longer.

But, it is certain that next year will be full of stunners. You might have to wait a bit longer as the filming of the episode is still reported to be underway, and it seems like the production has not reached its concluding stage. 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 24, 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 to expect in the new season?

The official synopsis of the series states, 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.
