When is Sex Education Season 4 expected to release on Netflix? Continue reading to find out.
The third season of this beloved Netflix series was as special as the conversation Jakob had with Otis, quoting, “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.” It is one of the best dialogues, which stole the spotlight in the last season, and has fans more invested in the series than ever as it resonates with them.
We hope you remember that the last episode ended on a massive cliffhanger, which has led to much speculation among the fans as it appears that the characters and story are upping the stakes even higher for the latest season, which will be exciting to look forward to. So, just for you, we’ve compiled all the necessary information about the upcoming season, so you can start watching it on Netflix right away to catch up on the story in case you haven’t been able to.
Here is everything we know so far about when Sex Education Season 4 will release on Netflix.
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 2023.
The exact release date of the show has not been disclosed as of November 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 Plot Updates
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.” She further added, “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.”
In addition to this, the official synopsis of the pilot episode, as per IMDb, states, “Otis and Rose go as dates [by force] to the fund raising 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.”
Moreover, in an interview with Elle, Asa Butterfield spoke about his hopes for the future of Otis and Maeve’s relationship. “I would like to see them look at the bigger picture,” Butterfield said. “To explore themselves and to be more focused either on their relationship with themselves or their platonic relationships with their friends and family.” In addition to this, speaking to Radio Times about what it feels like to be back on set, Mackey said, “It feels very familiar! And it’s a bit more sporadic because we have more characters. I’m not in it as consistently. But we’re in the middle of filming now, and I’m excited to be back.”
Sex Education Season 4 Cast Updates
As mentioned by Netflix, the newest cast members are Emmy-winning actor Dan Levy (Schitt’s Creek), Doctor Who’s Thaddea Graham, Kamikaze’s Marie Reuther, and newcomers Felix Mufti, Anthony Lexa, Alexandra James, and Imani Yahshua have all joined the cast. Following the closure of Moordale Secondary, students are embarking on a new adventure at the high-tech and progressive Cavendish Sixth Form College.
With yoga on the lawn, a strong sustainability vibe, and even a rival sex therapist on campus, it’s every health and wellness nut’s dream. Otis (Asa Butterfield) is also juggling a long-distance relationship with Maeve (Emma Mackey). She’s living her dream at the prestigious Wallace University in the United States, where she’s studying under cult author Thomas Molloy, played by Levy.
Gillian Anderson, Ncuti Gatwa, Aimee Lou Wood, Connor Swindells, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Mimi Keene, George Robinson, Chinenye Ezeudu, Dua Saleh, Alistair Petrie, and Samantha Spiro are also back for Season 4. Although you’ll have to wait a little longer for Sex Education Season 4, filming has begun, and you can expect even more weirdness.
