We are very lucky as we are getting a new season each year since its first release in January 2019. According to the production listing in June 2022 the series will begin its’ shooting in July 2022 but not finish until March 2023. One source just confirms that filming is under production on 4th July 2022. Definitely, the filming schedule will change and need to reveal completely while it will start.
On the calls of the castings, they are also sharing their plan on filming in-between July and November 2022 in Wales. Now it is confirmed that the filming also currently taking place between July 2022 and late January 2023, which means we have to wait till summer 2023 to release season 4.
Sex Education (Season 4): Expectation
At the end of every season, we have faced many questions unanswered, and this time there are no such exceptions.
Otis and Maeve Pair Will Return?
In the last season, we have seen that the pair finally expressed their feelings for each other and made a new romantic ambiance, Maeve has just shocked us as she might be visiting the US for a couple of months, and for that time the relationship will be on hold.
In the fourth, we will get the opportunity to see what will be the fate of this holding relationship in the future after Maeve return from America. We are assuming apart from the two months; the time abroad might reveal the massive change in Maeve after her return.
Emma Mackey opens up about the future of Maeve to ELLE, “I’m excited for her to make some new friends, to open up a bit more and she will get know about a different culture, and the different kind of world, and people. There is a question that arises as she always used to stay in little tiny bubbles. This time how she will out from that bubble”
Eric becomes independent
We have mostly seen that Eric is frequently the voice of reason for Otis and a lot of time has served by being the moral compass of the show, however, this thing has been able to stop him from cheating on both boyfriends he has had. At first, he cheated on Rahim with the former bully Adam, and after that, in Nigeria, he cheated on Adam with the cameraman Oba.
Eric also collapsed with Adam so that he can able to explore his sexuality without any tie in the relationship. Now the questions arise how Eric is able to explore his newfound confidence remains for seen, but there is also a chance to put Adam and Rahim on a course of collision for their own relationship.
Joy’s Biological Father
After the birth of his little sister Joy, you may think that Otis, Jean, Ola, and, and Jakob could become a happy family, but Jean got some unwelcome news when at the hospital and suggests strongly that Jakob cannot be the father of Joy anyway.
We all know that Jean always had a healthy sex life before the meeting with Jakob and getting such regular encounters with Dan and harry. At the time while Jean kissed her ex-boyfriend Remi, seemed to be actually something that we had not even seen on screen.
We had seen their comeback of Dan in season 3, making a lot of comedic moments outside of the hospital and also joking about the possibility as the baby belongs to him. Now the face-off happens between Dan and Remi who will become the potential father, which definitely breaks their heart of Jakob and maybe she has to pass some mental stress.
Cal is the only one of the two students whom we know at Moordale Academy as Non-binary. At the end of the season, Cal makes friends with Layla who is another non-binary student who faced a lot of hardship throughout the entire season and also prefers to follow such rules and avoid the clash as it indicates such conflicts with their own beliefs.
Layla also has a story as she hurt themselves not in the form of self-harm but also as the uneducated on to the right form to help to look less famine. For that the credit goes to Cal, Layla now has the proper concept of how to help themselves when preparing for school.
Due to Layla and Cal who are the only non-binary students, that does not even indicate that they will always be together, but Cal clear things to Jackson that they also needed to be entered into a relationship from the perspective where Cal was not looking like a woman. Among all the students in the school, there are only Val and Layla who only understands each other well which may make their binding stronger.
The students of Moordale got the succession the protest against principal Hope Haddon, but they also need a little bit more success. The public and proud protest of the students as the popular “Sex School” might be left the investors and boards for desperate measures. Hope was suspended from the chair of head of the school, and all the investors have taken their funding and left the board without any little choice just to sell the school.
Now, these situations arise a big question about the future of Moordale in serious doubt and as consequence, the students start to find a new school for them to complete their secondary education.
In this tough situation, there is still hope while Jackson read his tablet the headline of an article as said,” Sex School Inspires Protests Around the country!” it means that entire students of the school take that exact stance then the government may have to make a choice for the future of teaching sex education in the UK that again open the door of Moordale to continue.
Otis Restore the Sex Clinic or Not?
As Otis and Maeve make up, such a decent lack of Sex Education at Moordale Academy could reveal Otis to recover to the Sex Clinic again for helping needy people.
If it happens then it would be a great way to acquire Otis’ time when Maeve is in America. The problem is with the removal of the old toilets, Otis needs to get a new clinic to help the students.

I’m so sorry to have to find myself doing some other little things, some other opportunities have come up. So, I’ve been doing it for three years and I’ve, like, genuinely loved it.”
Tanya Reynolds who is also known as Ola’s girlfriends Lily will not be coming for the fourth season. According to her the storyline already wrapped up better way at end of the season three. So, she’s not got loose ends to tie up.
She said,” At the end of last season, everyone kind of gets scattered, and I think that’s just a good opportunity to bring in some new characters. I will absolutely miss her. I love, love Lily with my whole entire being, and I had the best time in those three seasons, and I will miss it for sure. I will miss Lily and I will miss the gang. But it just kind of feels very right. It feels like time.”

“I’m not a part of the new series. I can’t really talk about why. But I’m so proud of the show and grateful to have been part of something so important. There is nothing bad about Sex Education.”
Sex Education (Season 5): Renewal Status
Aimee Lou Wood told Radio Times that she is not quite sure the show could be continued by saying: “I’m not sure because there’s a part of me that could just do it forever. But there’s also a part of me that’s like, ‘No – we’ve all got to go and do different things and play different parts. It’s a bittersweet thing because it probably is, even if it’s not this series, it probably is closer now to ending than it is to the start. Which is sad but also probably in many ways, will be positive. I always think to leave them wanting more as well. Always leave them wanting more.”
Asa Butterfield said to Digital Spy “I don’t think it needs more than four or five. But who knows”.
