Sex Education season 4 coming to Netflix this year

Sex Education season 4 coming to Netflix this year

The hit teen comedy will be back this year.

Sex Education season four will drop on Netflix this year.

The new season will be set following the closure of Moordale Secondary school as the teens moving on to a new stomping ground.

The official plot line released via Netflix’s blog Tudum states: “Otis (Asa Butterfield) and Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) 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.

Sex Education will be back this year.

“But Cavendish is a culture shock for all the Moordale students — they thought they were progressive, but this new college is another level.”

Sex Education fans have been waiting patiently since September 2021 for a new batch of episodes of the hit comedy, and now it finally feels closer than ever.

Unfortunately, the Tudum blog did not spill any details about the day, month or even the season for the planned season four launch, but at least we know it will be on our screens before New Year's.

At this point, we'll take any nuggets of information we can get!

Season three ended with the new principal Hope Haddon (Jemima Kirke) trying to give Moordale a huge revamp and seemed to come to blows with Otis' mum Jean (Gillian Anderson).

Then there was Eric and Adam's (Connor Swindells) tumultuous attempt at forging a relationship, which didn't have the happy ending and left the hearts of viewers broken.

Ncuti Gatwa will be back for one more season.

Meanwhile, after finally making up with Otis, Maeve (Emma Mackey) decided to move to America.

And we can't forget Jean's traumatising birth and the moment she discovered who baby Joy's dad really is.

But fans will have to tune in later this year to discover who Joy's father is and what's in store for the remaining characters.

Season four will look a lot different to previous seasons and not just because of the new setting - a bunch of original cast members have bid farewell to the show or announced their plans to leave as production commenced.

Sex Education season 3 came out in September 2021.
While Otis, Eric, Maeve and Jean will all be returning, Gatwa confirmed that season four will be his last because he's the new Doctor in Doctor Who.

Patricia Allison, who played Ola - Otis's ex-girlfriend-turned-step-sister - also said goodbye to Sex Education after season three. And Tanya Reynolds, who played Ola's girlfriend Lily, won't be back this season.

Simone Ashley's Olivia left Moordale so she could join the cast of Bridgerton and Rakhee Thakrar, who played English teacher Emily Sands, has also left the show.
