Netflix has already confirmed the fourth installment of one of its most successful series.
Sex Education, whose third season was released on September 17 on Netflix, has not needed to go through the usual month that the streaming platform usually takes to evaluate the audience results to be renewed for a fourth installment that we already look forward to with open arms. The good news was announced by Netflix last weekend during the spectacular TUDUM fan event.
‘Sex Education’ is back: Netflix renews it for a season 4
Although the season 3 of Sex Education contributed greatly to bring his characters to a much more mature point and even in some specific cases even completing their travels, the truth is that the need to know how some of his plots continue wins by a landslide to that flavor of ending with which some others were fired. Now we have the guarantee that Sex Education returns and that, with the fourth season, we will continue to attend this path of adolescent self-discovery that captures us so much about its characters.
If there fourth season of Sex Education will experience, like season three, a time jump of several months It remains to be seen, but the truth is that the new installment of the Netflix series has a lot to solve in some of the plots that it left at its peak. A good example of this is, for example, the discovery by Jean (Gillian Anderson) of the results of the paternity test that Jakob requested. Now with her daughter in her arms and her boyfriend happy to be a father, we will have to see how the therapist approaches the situation, who promises to destroy everything that happened. Also, Eric begins to feel attracted to his ex again, while Otis has had to watch Maeve leave for the United States now that they had finally given free rein to their feelings.
In the same way, we will have to know what happens with the Moordale Institute, which is now in its most complicated moment and its future is undoubtedly in danger. What’s more, the paths of some characters were left in the air after season 3 ended, which leads us to speculate who will be back and who we will miss in the fourth installment.
Who does not return? Maeve and Hope, walking the tightrope
The first character that comes to mind when thinking about the uncertain future of one of the protagonists of Sex Education it is, obviously, Maeve’s, who finally gets the scholarship she so longed for to go study in the United States. The opportunity comes at the least expected moment, when the young woman had just gotten carried away with Otis (Asa Butterfield), but the decision to pursue her dreams was, without a doubt, the correct one.
Nevertheless, Maeve going to America could keep the character away from Moordale for quite some time, especially if season 4 does not experience a timeskip. Similarly, it does not seem unreasonable to think that a young woman who lives far from her family, with constant financial problems and in a trailer park I ended up deciding to stay in the USA in search of a better life.
Emma Mackey’s Future In ‘Sex Education’: Is Maeve Returning In Season 4?
Whether or not Emma Mackey will be in the new episodes is not certain and, for now, the actress’s only statements suggest that she cannot play a 17-year-old girl for her entire life.
Another quite feasible but neither confirmed nor denied absence is Hope’s, the new director starring Jemima Kirke whom we have caught so much mania in the third installment. The board of directors failed to soften us with her history of infertility and, furthermore, the students set her up in a trap that ended with her leaving the institute the wrong way. Now what is at stake is the future of Moordale, but let’s not rule out being able to see her in the new episodes, just like we have been seeing the old director.
Who does come back: Everyone else … Until further notice
The rest of the plots have been left open or, at least, without clues about a possible exit of any of the characters. We are especially concerned with the permanence of Ruby (Mimi Keene), since her love story with Otis has captivated and it is hoped that there may be more story to tell, like that of Eric (Ncuti Gatwa), who is one of the most charismatic characters and, after having passed Page with Adam, he goes back to the story that in the second season he was not prepared to face.
Likewise, we can also count on the returns of Aimee Lou Wood as Aimee, Connor Swindells as Adam, Kedar Williams-Stirling as Jackson, Patricia Allison as Ola, Tanya Reynolds as Lily, Dua Saleh as Cal, Alistar Petrie as Mr. Groff and Gillian Anderson as Jean Milburn.
