We’re so not ready to say goodbye to these characters


It’s been a long time coming, but the release of the fourth (and final) season of Netflix’s hugely popular teen show, Sex Education, is almost upon us. Over the past three chapters, we’ve laughed, we’ve cried, and we’ve had LGBTQIA conversations opened up in the home. Oh and of course, we’ve swooned over gay icon, the one and only Gillian Anderson.

Today (2 August) Netflix released the first look images of this final instalment and we’re so not ready to say goodbye. These stills give insight into what we can expect from the characters we’ve fallen in love with over the years.

Netflix has teased this upcoming season by stating:

“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 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…”

The diverse cast and stories have provided much-needed representation. It has tackled stories about the intersections of race and sexuality and gender. Non-binary and trans joy. Sexual assault. Female friendship and solidarity. Toxic masculinity. Coming out. And much much more. Suffice it to say, this show will be missed by fans around the world. It has had a huge impact on LGBTQIA audiences.

Did you miss the official teaser trailer? It’s pretty gay. You can check out our reaction here.

Season four of Sex Education will be available to stream on Netflix from 21 September.
