Sex Education is full of weird and wonderful characters and Season 4 will bring even more! Here is a list of who we can expect to see in the fourth season and which beloved cast members are not coming back.
Obvious returners include Asa Butterfield as Otis Milburn, and Gillian Anderson as his sex therapist mother, Dr Jean Milburn.
Ncuti Gatwa, despite being confirmed as the new Doctor Who, will also be back as Eric Effiong. Emma Mackey, will be back playing Maeve Wiley despite starting the series in the USA. Mackey has been filming alongside her doppelganger Margot Robbie in Greta Gerwig's Barbie also out in 2023.
Other favourite characters including, Adam Groff (Connor Swindells) and Aimee Gibbs (Aimee-Lou Wood) are back for Season 4 as well as…
• Ruby Matthews (Mimi Keene)

• Jackson Marchetti (Kedar Williams-Stirling)
• Cal Bowman (Dua Saleh)
• Michael Groff (Alistair Petrie)
• Maureen Groff (Samantha Spiro)
• Isaac Goodwin (George Robinson)
Schitt's Creek creator and star Dan Levy (David Rose) excitingly joins the cast as Thomas Molloy, Maeve's teacher in the United States. Thaddea Graham (Doctor Who) is also set to appear in an unconfirmed but recurring role.
Other newcomers to Sex Education: Season 4 include:
• Felix Mufti

Four main characters will not be returning for Sex Education: Season 4 - sorry! These are:
Simone Ashley, who plays Olivia Hanan, will not appear in Season 4 of Sex Education as she is scheduled to appear in Bridgerton Season 3 instead. She plays Kate Sharma who is now experiencing life as a married Viscountess in Season 3.
Patricia Allison, who plays Otis's ex-girlfriend and sort-of Step Sister Ola Nyman, will not be returning. We are heartbroken as Ola was such a great character! She announced her departure on Capital Xtra’s Breakfast Show in July 2022 and says she is exploring alternative roles so we will see her back on screen soon. She is rumoured to be a part of the show Extraordinary on Disney+ also released in 2023.
Also in July, Tanya Reynolds who plays Lily Iglehart and Ola's girlfriend will not be returning either! At least the iconic duo will be away at the same time. Lily’s storyline had almost wrapped up at the end of the third season and the closure of the high school allows for a plausible exit for both Lily and Ola.
Rakhee Thakrar, who plays English teacher Emily Sands, has also confirmed that she will not be returning for Season 4 of Sex Education. She hinted at future acting projects on the horizon when announcing her departure so we’re sure she’ll be back on TV again soon.
Jim Howick, who plays Emily's boyfriend and fellow teacher Colin Hendricks, has not been confirmed as a returning character as of yet.
Two new transgender characters are joining the Sex Education cast for Season 4 named Abbi and Kent. At the casting call, the pair were described as a "power couple". Abbi was kicked out from her ultra-religious and conservative family and lives with Kent and his parents. Abbi is described as the leader of her group and sunny, magnetic, generous and loyal. Her look is meant to be 1990s Winona Ryder. Kent, a trans man, is described as goofy, forgetful, and a great listener.
Sex Education's fourth season will premiere sometime in 2023 (presumably in the Autumn/Fall season), according to an official announcement made on September 25, 2021 at the Netflix Tudum worldwide fan event.
