'Sex Education' Is Ending—Here's the Release Date & Teaser for the Final Season
We’re going to miss this ‘Sex Education’ crew.
It’s official: the fourth season of Sex Education will be the last cycle for this hit Netflix series.
Having premiered in 2017, Sex Education has been one of the most popular LGBTQ-inclusive shows on Netflix. Over the years, actors Asa Butterfield, Gillian Anderson, Ncuti Gatwa, Aimee-Lou Wood, Emma Mackey, and Connor Swindells delivered both hilarious and heartwarming moments on Sex Education, always making audiences feel like they were hanging out with a group of actual friends.
As seen in this first teaser of Sex Education season four, the series is poised to go out with a bang as it wraps up stories from our fan-favorite characters and introduces new people into their lives. This fourth and final season features new cast members such as 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.
Sex Education creator Laurie Nunn addressed the ending of the series with a letter written to the fans. She wrote:
“A lot has happened since our first writers room in 2017, when we spent a month in a cramped office above a sex shop, talking about what it felt like to go through puberty. The painful awkwardness, first crushes and big, big feelings. We wanted to make a show that would answer some of the questions we all used to have about love, sex, friendship, and our bodies. Something that would have helped our inner teenagers feel a little less alone. It’s been overwhelming seeing how the show has connected with people around the world, and we hope it’s made some of you feel a little less alone too.”
Nunn continued, “Writing this feels bittersweet, as we’ve decided the fourth season will also be the final instalment of our show. This was not an easy decision to make, but as the themes and stories of the new season crystalized, it became clear that this was the right time to graduate. We are incredibly proud of Sex Education and feel indebted to our brilliant writers, cast, and crew who put so much heart into making every episode. They have worked tirelessly to bring you this final season, and we can't wait to share it with you. Goodbyes are the worst, but let’s celebrate all the good times we’ve had.”
Sex Education season four premieres September 21 on Netflix.
