Sex Education follows the lives of the students, staff and parents of the fictional Moordale Secondary School as they face a variety of teenage dilemmas, including relationships, sexual identity and sexual assault.
Ncuti Gatwa, who was recently announced as the new Doctor in Doctor Who, will return to his role as Eric Effiong for the fourth series of Sex Education.
Asa Butterfield, Gillian Anderson, Aimee Lou Wood, Emma Mackey and Connor Swindells will also make their highly-anticipated return.
Dan Levy as Thomas Molloy in Sex Education
Filming of series four is currently under way in Wales and will continue until 2023.
The new season will begin shortly after the closure of Moordale Secondary as Otis and Eric face their first day at Cavendish Sixth Form College.
Otis is nervous about setting up his new sex clinic, whilst Eric is praying they will not be losers again.
The Sex Education cast
However Cavendish is a culture shock for all the Moordale students as they come face to face with the college’s progressive students.
The Moordale students are shocked to find daily yoga in the communal garden, a strong sustainability focus and a group of teenagers who are popular for being kind.
Alongside Dan, the cast will also welcome Doctor Who star Thaddea Graham and Marie Reuther, best known for her role in 2021 TV series Kamikaze.
Newcomers Felix Mufti, Anthony Lexa, Alexandra James, Reda Elazouar, Bella Maclean and Imani Yahshua will all also make their Sex Education debuts.
