The decision to conclude the show with the upcoming season seemed almost inevitable, especially since several cast members had previously announced they would not be returning. This list includes Simone Ashley, who portrayed Olivia, Tanya Reynolds as Lily, and Patricia Allison in the role of Ola. Additionally, Ncuti Gatwa, who gained fame for his portrayal of Eric Effiong in the series, is set to take on the lead role in the popular British series “Doctor Who.” However, he will still make an appearance in Season 4 of “Sex Education.”
Returning to the series will be Asa Butterfield, along with a lineup that includes Gillian Anderson, Aimee-Lou Wood, Emma Mackey, Connor Swindells, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Mimi Keene, George Robinson, Chinenye Ezeudu, Dua Saleh, Alistair Petrie, Samantha Spiro, Jim Howick, Rakhee Thakrar, and Daniel Ings.
The new additions to the cast for this season include Dan Levy, Thaddea Graham, Lisa McGrillis, Marie Reuther, Jodie Turner Smith, Eshaan Akbar, Felix Mufti, Anthony Lexa, Alexandra James, Reda Elazouar, Bella Maclean, and Imani Yahshua.
The official description of Season 4 reads as follows:
“After the closure of Moordale Secondary, Otis (Butterfield) and Eric (Gatwa) find themselves embarking on a new chapter – their first day at Cavendish Sixth Form College. Otis is filled with nerves as he sets up his new clinic, while Eric hopes they won’t face the same challenges they did before. However, Cavendish proves to be a culture shock for the former Moordale students, pushing the boundaries of their progressive beliefs. The new college offers daily yoga sessions in the communal garden, a strong emphasis on sustainability, and a group of popular students known for their kindness. Viv (Ezeudu) is taken aback by the student-led, non-competitive approach of the college, while Jackson (Williams-Stirling) continues to grapple with his feelings for Cal. Aimee (Wood) decides to explore new horizons by pursuing an Art A-Level, and Adam (Swindells) questions whether traditional education is the right path for him. Meanwhile, in the United States, Maeve (Mackey) is living her dream at the prestigious Wallace University, studying under the guidance of renowned author Thomas Molloy (Levy). As Otis yearns for her and adjusts to a new family dynamic at home, he also navigates his role as a therapist on campus.”
