Is Sex Education Season 4 returning this month or not? Continue reading to find out.
It seems like forever since we learned that the hit series would be returning for a fourth season, but the wait continues! The popular Netflix series was officially renewed for a fourth season over a year ago, and many fans are becoming antsy, wondering when we will all be reunited with the beloved star cast for another chapter of the Moordale group.
Moreover, it is no surprise that the show was renewed for another season on January 17, 2019. Netflix announced that the series was on pace to have been streamed by over 40 million viewers within its first month of release. According to Netflix’s Top 10 global viewership, Sex Education was watched for over 447,750,000 hours between September 12 and October 24, 2021, which makes it a good enough reason for Netflix to expand and conclude the story properly.
So, we’ve put together a concise summary of Sex Education Season 4 and all the details you need to know about the release date, plot, and cast so that you may get a head start and be prepared before the show is available to stream on Netflix.
Sex Education Season 4 Release Date and Time Slot
The fourth season of Sex Education was officially announced on September 25, 2021, at Netflix’s Tudum global fan event, and the network has officially confirmed that the first season of Sex Education Season 4 will debut sometime in 2023. The exact release date of the show has not been disclosed as of October 3, 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.
We would like to highlight that this is just speculation at this point in time and will be confirmed by Netflix in the coming months. Moreover, the official Netflix Twitter handle also shared some BTS pictures as the show started its production back on August 19, 2022, quoting, “Sex Education Season 4 is now in production, and Dan Levy has joined the cast as Mr. Molloy!” Take a look at the post below:

On the other hand, like the last three seasons, and if we take most of the Netflix series into consideration with a bit of speculation, then the new series, Sex Education Season 4, will have the same premiere time as other shows on the streaming service, which is 12:00 a.m. (PT) or 3:00 a.m. (ET). In order to receive updates on when the show premieres on Netflix, interested viewers can also enable notifications.
For the question that’s being raised, “Is Sex Education Season 4 premiering on Netflix in October 2022?” The answer is no! As mentioned above, the production of the next season has yet to be completed as of October 3, 2022. So there is no doubt that it is impossible for the show to return to Netflix this month. This suggests that viewers may have to wait until 2023, as Netflix has not officially announced the season premiere date.
Sex Education Season 4 Plot
The plot of the series follows the closure of Moordale Secondary, with at least 8 episodes of 47–61 minutes per episode. The students are navigating new territory at the high-tech and progressive Cavendish Sixth Form College.
