Fourth and final season sex education Releases September 21 exclusively on Netflix. For the people of Moordale, this will be a season full of love, laughter, tears, friendship, new (and old) relationships. Let’s take a look in the exclusive preview!
After Moordale School closes, Otis and Eric start a new life – their first day at Cavendish Sixth Form College. Otis is nervous about opening a new clinic, and Eric desperately hopes they don’t become “geeks” anymore. The Cavendish Institute was a culture shock for all Mordale students who had previously considered themselves Progressives. This new school is very different, yoga is practiced every day in the communal garden, there is a sustainable atmosphere, and there is a group of popular kids for their… kindness?! Viv is completely frustrated by the students’ non-competitive attitude while Jackson is still trying to work through his romance with Cal. Amy decides to try something new by taking art classes, while Adam tries to figure out if a traditional education is right for him.
Back in the United States, Maeve is living her dream at the prestigious Wallace University, where she is taught by cult writer Thomas Molloy. Otis yearns for her, but he has to get used to the fact that he is no longer the only child and not the only psychotherapist at school …
In a letter to fans, creator, writer and executive producer Laurie Nunn said:
“We are incredibly proud of Sex Education and indebted to our amazing team of writers, cast and crew who put so much love into every episode. They’ve been working tirelessly on this final season and we can’t wait to share it with you.”
Laurie gave an exclusive interview, available here.
Nkuti Gatwa: A Bittersweet Goodbye to Sex Education
It may have been one of the worst kept secrets of the past year, but Sex Education has announced that it will finally and officially close its doors after the upcoming fourth season. But in a recent interview with Rolling Stone UK, Nkuti Gatwa (who will soon play Doctor Who) said it was bittersweet to say goodbye to his character Eric Effiong and that he struggled with the show’s creative direction from time to time.
“It was very difficult. It was such a great show.”He said. “When you tell stories you haven’t seen before, there’s always an argument about how to tell them. It wasn’t always happy. I feel like we got over it and that we gave everything we could.”

But in a recent interview with Rolling Stone UK, Nkuti Gatwa (soon to play Doctor Who) said it was bittersweet to say goodbye to his character Eric Effiong and that at times he struggled with the overall creative direction of the show.
“It was very difficult. It was such a great show.”, He said. “When you tell stories you haven’t seen before, there’s always an argument about how to tell them. It wasn’t always happy. I feel like we got over it and that we gave everything we could.”
“Adult” it is certainly a reasonable word. The actor turns 31 in October and his character is still in his late teens. However, while he is grateful for his experience in the Netflix series, he has also expressed frustration at being a young black actor and dealing with executives who are primarily focused on pleasing white audiences.
“Being on the show quickly introduced me to the inadequacies of the industry.”He said. “I remember the executive producer told me that white people wouldn’t understand my character, Eric, and that made me angry. There’s a whole show that white people have to understand.”
Asa Butterfield returns to play protagonist Otis Milburn alongside him Gillian Anderson, Nkuti Gatwa, Amy Lou Wood, Emma McKee, Connor Swindells, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Mimi Keene.
