We all know that the upcoming season of Sex Education will herald a plethora of changes but when will we ever be able to see those changes play out in front of our screens? We know that there will be a lot of changes in Moordale Secondary School. Although it’s the fourth year, the teenagers haven’t graduated from high school. But that does not mean that everyone will be sticking around till the end.
So, the question arises, who are there in Sex Education season 4? But more importantly, when will Sex Education season 4 hit Netflix?
No matter how ardently we wish the series to hit the official streamer soon, unfortunately, it is not on the list of January 2023 releases. With the looming possibility of season 4 being the last season, fans have been (impatiently) waiting for the season to release or at least get some news about the release date.
With that said, here’s every latest update we know so far about the upcoming season of Sex Education.
When will Sex Education season 4 stream on Netflix?
As mentioned in previous reports, the filming for Sex Education season 4 began last summer. This implies that it would probably release sometime in early 2023. However, Digital Spy reports that the filming will continue till February 2023. According to Netflix Life, “This is a show that doesn’t take too long to film, and post-production is nothing like the scale of the likes of Shadow and Bone and The Witcher. This helps to keep the wait to a minimum.”
What can we expect to happen in Sex Education season 4?
The official synopsis of Sex Education season 4 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 at another level.
“There’s daily yoga in the communal garden, a strong sustainability vibe and a group of kids who are popular for being… kind?! Viv is totally thrown by the college’s student-led, non-competitive approach, while Jackson is still struggling to get over Cal.
“Aimee tries something new by taking an Art A-Level, and Adam grapples with whether mainstream education is for him. Over in the US, Maeve is living her dream at the 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…”
Who are the cast members of Sex Education season 4?
Season 4 will be the harbinger of a lot of changes. If you haven’t heard it yet, then you should know that season 4 will be losing three of the female characters – Simone Ashley (Olivia Hanan), Patricia Allison (Ola), and Tanya Reynolds (Lily Iglehart). Their exits have been voluntary.
In conversation with Digital Spy, Tanya Reynolds said, ‘Lily is not coming back either. Her storyline was just wrapped up quite nicely at the end of season three. So she’s got no loose ends to tie up, she had quite a happy ending.’ Furthermore, she added, ‘At the end of last season, everyone kind of gets scattered, and I think that’s just a good opportunity to bring in some new characters.’
She also mentioned how she will ‘absolutely miss Lily’ and the gang she worked with for three seasons. However, she stands firm by her decision because it ‘kind of feels very right. It feels like time.’
Upon being invited to Capital Xtra’s breakfast show, Patricia who reprised the role of Ola also mentioned something about her leaving Sex Education. She said, ‘I absolutely have loved being on Sex Education so, so much, and playing Ola. But unfortunately, I won’t be joining the team for season four.’ She mentioned her cause for leaving the series as to the arrival of other opportunities.
Emma Mackey, one of the lead roles of the series, who played Maeve, said to Hunger, ‘Sex Education is so momentous as a concept, as a show, and the cast is phenomenal. I genuinely care about them all a lot and I made lifelong friends. But the bittersweet nature of it is that I also can’t be a 17 my whole life.’
Considering her success with Bridgerton season 2, Simone Ashley has also refused to return for Sex Education season 4. ‘I get asked that all the time. No, I’m a Bridgerton girl now.’ She said to This Morning hosts Vernon Kay and Josie Gibson when they asked her whether she would return as Simon Ashley.
The rest of the cast will include:
- Gillian Anderson as Jean Milburn
- Asa Butterfield as Otis
- Ncuti Gawa as Eric
- Connor Swindells as Adam
- Aimee Lou Wood as Aimee
- Kedar Williams-Stirling as Jackson
- Chinenye Ezeudu as Viv
- Sami Outalbi as Rahim
- George Robinson as Issac
- Dua Saleh as Cal
