One of our favorite TV series of all time, Sex Education, is coming back for a fourth season (finally) and bringing one of the funniest names in television back with them! That's right, Dan Levy is joining season four of the brilliant comedy - and we can't wait to see him do his thing. This will mark Levy's first television appearance since the end of Schitt's Creek in 2020. So clearly, we've missed him.
As season three of Sex Education came to a close, not only did it leave us wanting more, but it left us wondering who is staying for season four and who is calling it quits. With rumors flying, we finally have the answers we deserve and confirmation that a few of our fan-favorites are leaving, but the OG trio is staying. Simone Ashley, Tanya Reynolds, Patricia Allison, and Rakhee Thakrar, who played Olivia, Lily, Ola, and Ms. Sands, have all said their goodbyes, despite being on board since season one. However, we are delighted to announce Asa Butterfield, Ncuti Gatwa, Gillian Anderson, and Emma Mackey will all return for Season four as Otis, Eric, Jean, and Maeve.
We were nervous about Mackey's return for season four after her character moved to the U.S. at the end of season three, but have no fear: she's going nowhere. Phew! As for Dan Levy? He's jumping on as Mr. Thomas Molloy, an author and Maeve's tutor at her new Ivy League college in the U.S. We're sorry, that pairing couldn't sound more perfect! It almost begs the question: why wasn't he cast from season one? Well, he was busy creating and starring in Schitt's Creek, so that's something.
Luckily, Netflix has graciously given us a little inside scoop on what season four of Sex Education is going to look like. According to the streamer, now that Moordale Secondary is closed, Eric and Otis are starting their first year together at Cavendish Sixth Form College. They are nervous about what the very progressive new school has to offer, and Otis is worried about being the only therapist on campus now that Maeve is enjoying her time at Wallace University. Unfortunately, there is no official release date yet, but we will be patiently waiting until then... Stay tuned!
