Sex Education Season 4 Release Date
Countdown to July 5, 2023 at 10:00 AM (UTC)
With the ending of Sex Education Season 3 and the simultaneous announcement for Season 4 in September 2021, fans speculated that the reboot will be released in 2022.
However, it was only in August 2022 that the show started filming. Jim Howick, writer and actor from the show, also stated that production will be going on for a while and that they’re expecting to film all the way through February 2023.
With this, no trailer and release date has been announced yet for Sex Education Season 4.
Based on the recurring patterns from filming to the release of the previous seasons, Netflix takes about one year to do post-production for Sex Education. Let’s hope it will be released before 2023 ends.
Nevertheless, we know that the fourth season will be worth the wait!
Sex Education Season 4 Trailer
Netflix UK has yet to release the official trailer of Sex Education Season 4.
Aside from their short Instagram clip, there are still no concrete details about the fourth installment of this teen comedy-drama series. The promotional video and trailer of the show are not yet announced.
In the meantime, here’s the trailer for Season 3 of Sex Education for your enjoyment. We will link up the trailer as soon as it is out!
Sex Education Season 3 Story
For Season 3, Moordale High School is now led by its new headmistress, Hope Haddon, after Michael Groff was fired.
In hopes of transforming the image of the academy as a “sex school”, she imposes strict rules and institutional policies to control the students. She even renamed Moordale to Sparkside Academy.
From the students’ required wearing of uniforms to teaching them abstinence-only kind of sex education, Hope is confident that her methods will be accepted by all and make them conservative.
However, as the curriculum became regressive and the administration more dictatorial, the student body challenges the system and organizes a protest.
After these humiliating public events, Hope quits and the future of Moordale School was at stake as the investors have withdrawn their funding and students had to seek for new schools to transfer to.
Amidst all this, the unlikely relationship between Otis and Ruby became known in the school as well as their eventual breakup in the early part of the season.
This is also the case for Adam and Eric, who we really thought would have a better chance.
In the season finale, Otis and Maeve finally gave their feelings a try and kiss again after confessing to each other.
The upcoming sequel will pick up after Maeve leaves for America to continue her schooling and leave Otis. It is also anticipated that there will be new dynamics in Season 4 after the school has been sold.
