Netflix’s beloved high school dramedy, “Sex Education,” is set to conclude with its fourth season, scheduled to premiere on September 21. The streaming platform confirmed the news, ending speculations about the show’s future.
Creator, writer, and executive producer Laurie Nunn shared the bittersweet announcement with fans in a heartfelt letter. Nunn said concluding the series was not easy, highlighting the emotional attachment to the show. The themes and narratives of the upcoming season came together to make it clear to the team that it was time to bid farewell.
Reflecting on the journey since the show’s beginning, Nunn recalled the early days in 2017 when the writing team gathered in a modest office above a s*x shop. Their discussions centered around the trials and tribulations of puberty, including awkwardness, first crushes, and overwhelming emotions.
They aimed to create a show that would tackle the questions and insecurities that plagued teenagers, offering solace and a sense of belonging. Nunn expressed gratitude for the overwhelming global response to the series, acknowledging its impact in making people feel less alone.
The fourth season of “Sex Education” occurs after Moordale Secondary’s closure. Protagonists Otis (played by Asa Butterfield) and Eric (played by Ncuti Gatwa) embark on their first day at Cavendish Sixth Form College, where Otis seeks to establish a new clinic.
A teaser for the upcoming season introduces Otis as he candidly shares his thoughts on s*x with his new classmates, creating a gasp-inducing moment. He clarifies that he is a sex therapist who learned everything he knows from his mother, dispelling any misconceptions.
