Final season of Sex Education
Series creator, lead writer, and executive producer Laurie Nunn wrote in a letter to fans, “We are incredibly proud of ‘Sex Education’ and feel indebted to our brilliant writers, cast and crew who put so much heart into making every episode. They have worked tirelessly to bring you the final series, and we can’t wait to share it with you.”
A tweet from the show’s official account said: “It’s time to finish. The final season, coming September 21.”
The official description of Season 4 states:
“Following the closure of Moordale Secondary, Otis (Butterfield) and Eric (Gatwa) 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 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 (Ezeudu) is totally thrown by the college’s student-led, non-competitive approach, while Jackson (Williams-Stirling) is still struggling to get over Cal. Aimee (Wood) tries something new by taking an Art A-Level and Adam (Swindells) grapples with whether mainstream education is for him. Over in the US, Maeve (Mackey) is living her dream at prestigious Wallace University, being taught by cult author Thomas Molloy (Levy). Otis is pining after her, whilst adjusting to not being an only child at home, or the only therapist on campus…”
Asa Butterfield, who plays Otis in the series, has told GQ magazine there’ll be a lot of new things to take in in the new series.
“We’re in the new school, new locations, and things have changed up a bit. And we’ve got some new characters,” he explained.
“The show’s definitely sort of evolved somewhat, but it’s still got the core team involved and it’s been fun. I mean, we all know each other so well at this point, so it’s a great time and it’s a laugh.”
