As season 3 of Sex Education ended with more than one major shock, we haven’t seen our favourite sex-crazed kids and their equally crazy professors and parents in about a year. We can’t wait to see where the original Netflix series will go next.
Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfield), who has inherited his mother’s talent for sex therapy, joins forces with social outcast Maeve Wiley (Emma Mackey) to launch an underground sex education clinic at their school, Moordale, even though the premise of Sex Education has changed since its first season.
As Otis and Maeve’s friends explored their sexuality throughout the course of the previous three seasons, Moordale earned a reputation as the renowned “sex school,” and by the conclusion of season three, both the unofficial clinic and Moordale itself had closed.
Sex Education Season 4 Plot
Even though Moordale came to an end at the conclusion of season 3—with all the pupils presumably being split up at various institutions to finish their A-Levels—there is still a lot of room for the tale to develop.
The Sex Education season 4 official summary is as follows:
“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 at 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…”
Even though Maeve and Otis eventually made up their minds to do anything at the conclusion of season 3, she left for America shortly after. Maeve will undoubtedly return at some point, but given that her on-screen counterpart Emma Mackey is now filming the Barbie movie, it seems probable that she won’t be seen for at least a portion of the season. So, by the time she returns, expect to see how Otis adjusts to her absence and whether they will become embroiled in another “will they, won’t they” scenario.

Sex Education Season 4 Release Date
Well, Sex Education season 4 hasn’t yet received a release date, although all indications point to an early 2023 winter opening.
The fourth season of Sex Education was announced through the official Sex Education Twitter account shortly after the third season’s September 2013 premiere. Sex Education occupied the January release date prior to season 3, which experienced filming and production setbacks as a result of the pandemic.
