While Netflix is canceling various shows, popular or not, a handful of key projects keep chugging along. One of those series is “Sex Education” which focuses on a group of teens navigating their hormones and relationships. A fourth season has been confirmed and there is now a batch of new actors joining the hit streaming project.
An announcement made by Netflix today has revealed that filming on season four is currently underway in Wales with new additions that include actors Dan Levy, Thaddea Graham, and Marie Reuther. Levy, who plays famous author Thomas Molloy in “Sex Education,” won an impressive four Emmy awards back in 2020 for his work on the popular comedy series “Schitt’s Creek” which ended that same year. The comedic actor produced, wrote, directed, and starred in the hit show leading to those multiple Emmy statues.
Other newbies on the next season are Felix Mufti, Anthony Lexa, Alexandra James, and Imani Yahshua.
The show’s returning cast features favorites such as Asa Butterfield, Gillian Anderson, Ncuti Gatwa, Aimee-Lou Wood, Emma Mackey, Connor Swindells, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Mimi Keene, George Robinson, Chinenye Ezeudu, Dua Saleh, Alistair Petrie, and Samantha Spiro.
Netflix also provided the following logline for the next season:
“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, 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 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 US, Maeve is living her dream at prestigious Wallace University, being taught by cult author Thomas Molloy. Otis is pining after her, whilst adjusting to not being an only child at home, or the only therapist on campus…”
Episodes will be directed by Dominic Leclerc, Michelle Savill, and Alyssa McClelland.
Given that filming has just started, we shouldn’t expect to see “Sex Education” return until sometime in 2023.
