Netflix’s popular British teen comedy, Sex Education, is gearing up for its final season, and the streaming platform wants fans to “finish together.” The exciting two-and-a-half-minute trailer for the fourth season promises a busy and satisfying farewell to the beloved series.
Sex Education has been a launching pad for many talented actors, including Emma Mackey, Ncuti Gatwa, Simone Ashley, and Asa Butterfield. As fans watch the trailer, their hearts are filled with bittersweet anticipation. The trailer, set to the iconic Meat Loaf song “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That),” showcases the challenges of a long-distance relationship as Otis (played by Asa Butterfield) and Maeve (played by Emma Mackey) navigate the complexities, including well-shot nudes, while Maeve attends Wallace University in the United States.
The trailer also highlights Gatwa’s character, Eric, who grapples with his anxieties about no longer being a loser and embraces who he truly is. He encourages his fellow classmates at Moordale Secondary to do the same. Back at home, Gillian Anderson’s Jean juggles a new baby, her job, and her evolving relationship with Otis, adding another layer of complexity to the storyline.
The final season takes a different direction as a competing sex therapist emerges at the Cavendish Sixth Form College. With a progressive vibe that includes daily yoga, a focus on sustainability, and a popular clique known for their kindness, the entire Sex Education crew is embarking on a journey of self-discovery. Netflix tantalizes viewers, telling them to prepare their tissues as they “finish together.”
In addition to the familiar faces, the trailer introduces new characters played by Hannah Gadsby and Dan Levy. Gadsby’s role alongside Anderson brings anticipation and excitement, while Levy portrays Maeve’s professor and a famous author, adding a new dynamic to the show.
The cast of Sex Education is a talented ensemble, including Aimee-Lou Wood, Connor Swindells, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Mimi Keene, George Robinson, Chinenye Ezeudu, Dua Saleh, Alistair Petrie, Samantha Spiro, Jim Howick, Rakhee Thakrar, and Daniel Ings. Season four welcomes new additions Lisa McGrillis, Marie Reuther, Jodie Turner Smith, Eshaan Akbar, Felix Mufti, Anthony Lexa, Alexandra James, Reda Elazouar, Bella Maclean, and Imani Yahshua.
Sex Education was created by Laurie Nunn, who also serves as an executive producer alongside Jamie Campbell, Ben Taylor, and Clare Couchman. Callum Devrell-Cameron is the series producer, and Rem Conway acts as a producer. The final season is directed by Dominic Leclerc, Michelle Savill, and Alyssa McClelland, with writing contributions from Troy Hunter, Krishna Istha, Selina Lim, Ethan Harvey, Annalisa Dinnella, Bella Heesom, and Thara Popoola.
Fans can mark their calendars for the highly anticipated return of Sex Education as season four premieres on Netflix on September 21st. It’s time to “finish together” and experience the culmination of this beloved series.
