When is the series returning for the new season? Here is everything we know about Sex Education Season 4.
Sex Education has earned praise for its ensemble cast, writing, direction, production qualities, and mature handling of its issues. The sitcom was a hit with viewers, with over 40 million people watching the first season when it premiered. Wood was nominated for a Bafta TV Award for Best Female Comedy Performance in the second series, and the third series was nominated for Best Comedy at the 50th International Emmy Awards.
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. Hence, it’s obvious why the die-hard fans have already begun to speculate about the series’ future release date, plot, and cast members as they eagerly await the new episodes of the season.
Many questions like “Will it be back in 2023?” or “What is the anticipated debut date?” have been raised and are just some of the queries that the fans have. 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.
Is Season 4 of Sex Education happening?
On September 25, 2021, eight days after the premiere of the third series, it was announced that Sex Education had been renewed for a fourth series. The prospective premiere date has yet to be acknowledged, and the current production status of the series has not been revealed as of October 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. On August 5, 2022, Asa Butterfield confirmed that the fourth season of the series began filming. 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, on August 19, 2022, it was announced that the fourth season was officially in production. 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:

Sex Education Season 4: What to expect in the new season?
The Hollywood Reporter also shared a full synopsis for Sex Education season 4 via Netflix, which you can read below: 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, while 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 U.S., Maeve is living her dream at the prestigious Wallace University, being taught by cult author Thomas Molloy. Otis is pining after her, while adjusting to not being an only child at home, or the only therapist on campus.
