‘Sex Education’ Season 4: Everything We Know So Far

The hilariously provocative and informative coming-of-age series Sex Education released its third season in September, topping Netflix’s charts at #1 as audiences binged the highly anticipated production that was delayed for several months. The season gave us everything we wanted and more, diving deeper into the complicated emotional stories that writer Laurie Nunn created to reflect the real life intricacies of human relationships.

In Season 3, Mooredale’s best and brightest fight for sexual positivity, rallying together in a wild and colorful climax before ending with a cliffhanger that left us begging for more from Mooredale. Audiences were quick to ask the burning question: will there be another season? Luckily we didn’t have to wait long for an answer as Season 4 of Sex Education was announced just weeks after the Season 3 premiere in the style of school bulletin posts on Instagram and Twitter. Fans are already filling the comments with predictions for what’s to come, and more specifically, who will end up with who.

The show is a bright and laugh-out-loud funny take on the growing pains and challenges we all face but with special consideration to the things people find hard to talk about. Tackling issues from gender dysphoria and drug-addicted parents to ugly ‘O’ faces and culinary dirty talk, the show makes audiences feel a range of emotions and teaches that above all – communication is sexy. While the show’s main focus is a raunchy comedy centered around Otis Milburn, the teenage son of sex therapist Jean Milburn, and his attempts to make sex education in his school more positive and wholly informative, the stories of the characters are meaningful, bringing forth real-life fears and anxieties of teens and adults alike, who cannot wait for more from the brilliant series.

Has Sex Education Been Renewed for Season 4?

We don’t have a confirmed release date for Sex Education Season 4 yet, but the show has been officially renewed by Netflix.

The second season was released in January 2020, just one year after the first. With the third being delayed until 18 months later, hopes are that filming will stay on course and that the fourth season may be released in autumn of 2022 with an expected total of 8 episodes.

Where Will Season 4 Take Place?

They are Sex School and they are proud of it! Unfortunately, the colorful display at Opening Day, where the students banded together to fight for a proper curriculum, led to the school’s funding being pulled. The students will need to finish out their school year, though where they will complete their high school education remains to be seen.


In Episode 8 of Season 3, alien-obsessed Lily returned to school after being shamed for a steamy short story she had written. Lily’s mother tells Jean that she wishes Lily had someone like her on campus to talk to. Wherever the teens end up finishing their schooling, we hope that Jean or some form of her teachings will be available to the sex-crazed students who were taught abstinence under the authority of Headmistress Haddon.

What Will Season 4 Be About?

In the last season, Jean gives birth to a daughter, Joy, whose DNA results are still up in the air. The shocked look on Jean’s face as she opens the envelope could possibly signal the start of an even more complicated home life for the mixed family who just started to come together after a rocky beginning. One thing is for certain, we need to learn who the real father is in the next season.


Adam and Eric are in their own complicated headspace and we need to know what’s going to come of their love lives. Eric kissed another man while visiting family in Nigeria and now the pair have broken up. While Eric was patient with Adam’s coming out he decided he needed someone who was proud to be with him after experiencing the queer culture in Nigeria where people are risking their lives to be who they are. Eric tells Adam that he’s losing who he is after working so hard to be himself, causing Adam to shut down. While Eric was in Nigeria, Adam befriended Eric’s ex-boyfriend Rahim. They eventually bond together over their pain and may even be flirting a little. Rahim helps Adam find his voice and speak from his heart, something he states he didn’t know he had until it was broken.

Adam works through the daunting task of coming out to his mother while struggling with a non-existent relationship with his father, Mr. Groff, the ex-principal who left Adam behind when his wife Maureen asked for a divorce. In Season 3 we see Michael Groff struggling in his own right. Without a job or a home of his own, he eventually talks to Jean who pushes him to find joy again. Michael realizes he wants to win Maureen back, and after some missed signals and heartfelt late-night conversations, is seen sneaking out of her bed in the final episode. Audiences are curious to see where the couple’s relationship will go and how Michael will break his silence to Adam, who we hope to see living fearlessly and proudly as himself.

It seems that Aimee may have a larger part of the show in Season 4 as her character goes on a journey of self-discovery while she heals from the sexual assault that took place in Season 2. In Season 3, Aimee talks about how she wants to stick up for what she believes in, become stronger and learn who she is outside of her relationships. Season 4 will likely show us her journey in becoming the strong, outspoken young woman she’s destined to be.

In the final episode of Season 3, we see Jackson tell Cal that he isn’t queer and Cal responds by telling him that they cannot be in a relationship with him if he sees them as a girl. Who will our Romeo trust with his heart next? Chinenye Ezeudu who plays the book smart and aspirational Viv, states in an interview that Jackson and Viv “would be endgame.” When asked about the fan-fueled theory that the two belong together she responded, “I’m pushing for them to get together. Because they just suit each other! But Viv has a new love interest in her life, and we’ll see where that goes. I think they’re well-suited for the time being. Who knows in other seasons?”

And the part that we’re all waiting for – will Otis and Maeve finally end up together? The pair have finally confessed their feelings for each other but at the last minute, Maeve changes her mind about her trip to the US and leaves for the study abroad program. Will the next season pick up with Maeve studying in the US and dealing with the challenges of being away from home or coming back as a changed woman with new experiences and a new perspective? Will Otis remain faithful while she is away? While some hope he doesn’t screw up his only chance with Maeve, many fans of the show are rooting for Ruby and Otis 2.0. The two have also discussed continuing the sex clinic that they started in Season 1. After the terrible sex education courses offered in Season 3 we desperately hope to see the clinic reopen before things get any more out of hand.

Will there be any changes to the cast?

A cast has yet to be confirmed but we can expect to see more of the main cast members, including Asa Butterfield as Otis Milburn, Emma Mackey as Maeve Wiley, Gillian Anderson as Jean Milburn, Ncuti Gatwa as Eric Effiong, Connor Swindells as Adam Groff, Alistair Petrie as Michael Groff, Kedar Williams-Stirling as Jackson Marchetti, and Aimée Lou Wood as Aimee Gibbs.

Among the characters we aren’t sure will return in the coming season is Isaac Goodwin, Otis’ rival love interest of Maeve’s, who takes his heart off the table when he learns that Maeve kissed Otis on a school trip. With Maeve moved out of the caravan park where Isaac resides it is unclear if their paths will cross again in the future.

Erin Wiley, Maeve’s mother, is now on the run from the police after she kidnapped her youngest child, Elsie, from her foster home during visitation. Maeve and Aimee tracked Erin down and retrieved Elsie moments before they were to escape onto a ferry. Erin later appears popping her head through a bush at the Mooredale school campus. She signals for Maeve to come meet her outside and makes amends with her eldest daughter, gifting her cash to use on her study abroad trip. She then disappears with no word of where she is headed, so it is unlikely we will see Erin in future seasons, unless it is from behind bars.

Layla is a quiet non-binary character who appears to be the example of a “good nb” when Cal is being reprimanded by headmistress Hope Haddon for being a “slovenly troublemaker.” Layla gets help from Cal in obtaining their first gender-affirming chest binder. Cal tells Layla they are proud of them as they glow in their new binder, resolving the character and not leaving any questions to be answered in an upcoming season. Though we might not see Layla return, we do hope Cal appears in Season 4 to provide more non-binary representation.


Hope Haddon, ex-headmistress of Mooredale High packed her bags after the students rallied against her and the changes that she made in her short time on campus. Teachers and students alike celebrate the sight of her empty office. With faculty favorites Mr. Hendrix and Ms. Sands vying for the job we’re getting our hopes up that we won’t see Ms. Haddon, and her terrible dance moves, again.

Goat, Aimee and her boyfriend Steve’s pet that the couple shared to show their commitment, may be hoofing it now that the couple have broken up. If the pair sort out Goat’s custody she may make a great emotional support animal for sweet Steve and his broken heart.

Emma Mackey, who plays the bold and brilliant Maeve Wiley, shared her mixed feelings about continuing her role as she reaches her mid-twenties, noting in an interview with Hunger that shecan’t be 17 [her] whole life.” Mackey goes on in an interview with Elle about her hopes for Maeve in Season 4. Maeve is often dealing with her troubled family life, a struggling financial situation and confusing teenage relationships. Mackey hopes to see her character live out a dream for herself. Season 3 ends with Maeve readying to leave for a study-abroad program in the US. Mackey wondersshe’s only ever lived in her little tiny bubbles. How is she out of that bubble?”


Asa Butterfield (Otis Melburn) laments similar hopes for Otis and Maeve to Elle,

“I would like to see them…look at the bigger picture,” he said. “To explore themselves and to be more focused either on their relationship with themselves or their platonic relationships with their friends and family.” Asa also stated that while he is up for a fourth season he is ready to say goodbye to the characters after three years.

Casting director Lauren Evans tells Elle,

“Like Laurie said before, Laurie doesn’t want to keep going and put these people through college and university and you know into middle age. But we’ll see.”

Like in Adam’s poem to Eric, we know the day will come when it’s over, but until then we will be lusting after more Sex Education.

Wait, Is Warner Bros Scrapping Its $70 Million Batgirl Movie? Rumors Are Swirling

Wait, Is Warner Bros Scrapping Its  Million Batgirl Movie? Rumors Are Swirling

After years of anticipation from DC fans, Warner Bros finally found a way to introduce Barbara Gordon to live-action, announcing a solo movie for the hero with the developing Leslie Grace-led film. Batgirl, which finished filming earlier this year, has been scheduled to hit HBO Max sometime this year, however according to a number of new reports, Warner Bros doesn’t want Batgirl to see the light of day. Outlets are reporting that $70 million project is being scrapped after test screenings scared off the studio on the movie. 

Batgirl has been called “irredeemable” by a reported “top Hollywood source” found by The NY Post. Per the report, the movie will be “shelved,” but it has yet to be confirmed by the studio if it’s purely a rumor or a bombshell piece of news for one of Warner Bros’ upcoming DC movies.  

The Wrap backed up this report, sharing it had additionally heard via insiders that the movie “did not work” for studio executives – made by Bad Boys For Life and Ms. Marvel directors Adil El Arbi and Billal Fallah for a reported budget of over $70 million (though it may have ultimately cost the studio $90 million by the time cameras finished rolling). 

The news could perhaps be the product of the recent change in Warner Bros’ leadership, with CEO David Zaslav becoming the new big boss since WB merged with Discovery. There was some rumored talk of the previous WB chair Toby Emmerich considering Batgirl for a theatrical release rather than a HBO Max exclusive, however, but the new reports suggest the film isn’t testing to the level of a big-screen project and may be removed from getting any kind of release. 

Batgirl would not only introduce Leslie Grace’s Barbara Gordon, but is features a stacked cast including the return of Michael Keaton as Batman and J.K. Simmons as James Gordon. Brendan Fraser plays the film’s villain, Ted Carson a.k.a. Firefly. It’s arguably unheard of for a project as high-profile as this one to lose any form of avenue for distribution.

Apparently, a move like this is not uncharacteristic for Warner Bros’ new CEO, however, who previously shut down the failed streaming service CNN+ weeks after it launched (it reportedly cost $300 million to put together). There is some restructuring of DC projects currently underway behind the scenes, with David Zaslav on the search for a someone to fill a role much like Marvel boss Kevin Feige has at Marvel Studios. 

Coming off San Diego Comic-Con late last month, Marvel Studios announced and showcased a lineup of projects planned until 2025 including two more Avengers films, whilst DC did not bring anything from Batgirl to its panel. Instead, Warner Bros chose to only focus on Shazam! Fury of the Gods and Black Adam, both of which have set release dates later this year. Warner Bros. Discovery is set to report its earnings for this past business quarter on Thursday; it’s possible we’ll learn more then.

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series: 5 Feelings I Had While Watching The Season 3 Premiere

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series: 5 Feelings I Had While Watching The Season 3 Premiere

What time is it? Summer time!

Well, that’s what the students of East High are saying in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. I know, the name is a mouthful, but honestly, this show is a whole lot of fun and if you haven’t watched it, you definitely should. The first two seasons were great, from the songs in Season 1 to the drama in Season 2, and when it was announced that the series would be getting a Season 3 and 4, I was all on board. 

Now that I have watched the first episode of Season 3, I am even more excited for the next episodes to come, and that premiere has me all in my feelings – specifically these five. 

Nostalgic  

Man, this show makes me so nostalgic for when I was younger. 

Don’t get me wrong, I would never travel back in time to then, just because I was so young and didn’t know half the stuff I know now, but there is just something about listening to the soundtrack of some of these original songs from the High School Musical movies that just get me. While we don’t get many songs in the first episode, we get the classic, “What Time Is It” from High School Musical 2 within the few three minutes of the show and ugh, the memories.

If you were a tween or kid back in 2007 and watched HSM2 when it premiered on Disney Channel, you know this song just as well as I do. And for years, I sang this song on the last day of school – heck, I still sing it now whenever warm weather comes around and I’m two years out of college. I love this music, and I can already tell from just this first episode that this season is going to make me so nostalgic. 

Curiosity

I’m really curious to see what they’re going to do with this camp in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. 

For those who don’t know, the first two seasons of this series were pretty much based around the first film’s premise. The show takes place in a world where the movies exist, but instead of the actors from the High School Musical cast that we’re familiar with, we are introduced to students who are auditioning for those iconic roles. And over the last two seasons, we’ve watched them grow into brilliant performers while singing in productions of both High School Musical and Beauty and the Beast, with covers and original songs all along the way. 

But the whole entire point of the first two seasons was that this show took place in the same high school where the movies were filmed. So it’s only natural to think that the second season might end up happening at the country club that was in High School Musical 2, but nope – we are at a summer camp, something that was never talked about in the original movies. 

The arrival of everyone coming to this summer camp is fun, but it makes me wonder how they’re going to include the songs from High School Musical 2 into this season when it’s not at the same location as the film, but it’s still interesting to watch, nonetheless. 

Proud 

Dude, I love Olivia Rodrigo – and I mean that. This girl has done so much these last two years and watching her in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is always a joy.

But what really makes me so proud of her is that I’m not even just proud of the actress, but the character as well. Nini is this young star who is a little afraid to take these big risks but she does so anyway, knowing that she has this big break she can’t lose, which was the big theme of this first episode. She goes away on this road trip with a producer over the summer so she can record songs, giving her that shot, and I am so proud of her for doing that. 

Olivia Rodrigo plays her perfectly, and while I know that her character was demoted to a guest role thanks to Rodrigo’s budding music career, I can’t help but be proud, because wow, she has blown up. It makes me want to watch her documentary on Disney+ again

Eagerness 

I know I said earlier on that I was curious as to how they’re going to really change up this season with this new location. But, about twenty minutes in, I genuinely was feeling eager to see where this show would go – specifically the dynamics of new characters. 

For two seasons, we have pretty much been surrounded by the same characters, and while we have grown to love them, I think this season was the one where we truly needed a change in not only scenery, but characters as well. And this first episode brought a ton of them in. 

One of the scenes that got me really eager to see what happens with these new characters was when Gina, Ashlyn and Kourtney, three clear as day theater kids, find out they have to share a cabin with Gadget (a new character) and two other girls – and you can clearly tell at first that they are not feeling the vibe, and you can almost smell the problems from a mile away. 

That screams great television, and it’s got me wondering how much more drama this show is going to produce over the next episodes with these new dynamics. I’m so eager to see.

Excitement

Seeing Corbin Bleu in the premiere episode made me very excited to see where this fictionalized version of him is going to go next. 

Usually, when it comes to the original members from the High School Musical movies, we’ll get some pictures from them from the old high school – like Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron both recently taking pics there in 2022 – but I didn’t think anyone would come back to the show. We had Lucas Grabeel and Kaycee Stroh in Season 1 but no one in Season 2, so I’m super pumped to see Corbin Bleu back for this season.

Not only that, but Jason Earles. Do you guys know who he is? The moment I saw him as Dewey, the director of Camp Shallow Lake, I practically screamed. This man is Disney Channel royalty. He was not only a co-star on Hannah Montana but also on Kickin’ It and I can’t believe he is in another Disney show and it has me so excited. 

I’m not sure how often he and Bleu are going to be on the show, but I know for a fact that those two appearing on that stage has me excited for what this season holds and I can’t wait to see what’s next. Could Zac Efron be next?

What are you guys looking forward to with Season 3 of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series? All I know is that if I don’t get a cover of “Fabulous” by Carlos in this season, I will riot. I demand it, Disney+!

The School For Good And Evil: 6 Quick Things We Know About The Netflix Movie

Book adaptations of big-time novels always seem to go over well with audiences, and have for plenty of years, with movie sagas such as Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings taking over the box office. But, a newcomer is arriving on the movie scene, one which should have been adapted almost as soon as it came out, if you ask me.

The School for Good and Evil, an amazing addition to the fantasy genre, is finally getting its own adaptation into the film world – but not in theaters. However, it will be appearing as a Netflix movie, on the popular streaming website. However, what else do we know about this upcoming film? What is it going to be about? Who is going to be in it? There are plenty of things that you might not know, but we do. Here are some quick things we know about the upcoming Netflix film.

The School For Good And Evil Release Date Is Set For October 21

Mark your calendars, fantasy lovers, as The School for Good and Evil is going to be coming out as part of the 2022 movie release schedule! Announced with the official poster from the Netflix Twitter page, it was confirmed that The School for Good and Evil would release on the popular streaming platform in Fall 2022, specifically on October 21. 

Talk about a great addition to all the fun Halloween movies we’ll be watching during that time of year – I can always use a little good and evil in my life.

The School For Good And Evil Has A Star-Studded Cast

With an adaptation like The School for Good and Evil, we all knew that the cast needed to be amazing. And, luckily, there’s no shortage of amazing additions to this Netflix movie. First, let’s take a look at the two leads characters of the film, Sophie and Agatha, where the story begins. These two roles will be played by Sophia Anna Caruso, known for her role in the Broadway musical Beetlejuice, and Sofia Wylie, who stars on a Disney+  show you really should watch, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.

Wylie is especially excited for her role in The School for Good and Evil. In an interview with MTV, she talked about her part as Agatha and how she’s excited to “bring some realness” to the character that hadn’t been seen before. She described Agatha’s struggles with internal and external beauty through her own experience, saying that it’s something she can relate to and that it’s an important message to teach.

That’s something that I personally can really relate to, that voice inside of your head, how much power it has. I deal with those doubts and those insecurities. And I think I can really bring some realness to Agatha in that sense because I know, as a teenage girl, it can be very difficult to overcome that voice.

Adding on to this cast, Deadline reported that two megastars, Charlize Theron and Kerry Washington, signed on for two of the main roles in the upcoming film. Theron is set to play Lady Lesso, and Washington will portray a teacher at the school, Professor Dovey.

In addition to these two, in another article, Deadline reported that Laurence Fishburne, known for his roles in The Matrix trilogy and many other films, as well as action star Michelle Yeoh, from movies such as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Everything Everywhere All At Once, Crazy Rich Asians, and her TV role in Star Trek: Discovery, have stepped up to be in The School for Good and Evil. Fishburne will play the Schoolmaster – a role that sounds quite fitting for someone of his talents, and Yeoh will portray another teacher, Professor Anemone.

Also for the film, Demi Isaac Oviawe, Kaitlyn Akinpelumi, and Freya Theodora Parks will play Anadil, Dot and Hester, three young women who are a part of The Coven in The School for Good and Evil, as confirmed by a behind-the-scenes look with the author of the original novel, Soman Chainani on YouTube.

Already, this film is shaping up to be filled to the brim with some of the Hollywood elite. I, for one, can’t wait to see what they do with the material they are given, because it’s about to get magical.

The School For Good And Evil Will Follow The Bestselling Book Series

For those who don’t know, The School for Good and Evil is composed of several novels in a series. Netflix confirmed that this new movie will be based on the series by Soman Chainani, and from the premise of the film, it’s looking to be exactly like the first novel.

As confirmed by the description from the trailer for the new movie on YouTube, The School for Good and Evil is going to follow two best friends, Sophia and Agatha, who are swept into a world of trying to balance both good and evil when they are given different roles, but this in turn causes their lives to turn upside down. 

I’m already on board for a story like this. Two opposing personalities who end up being trained in styles that they thought they weren’t aligned with? Thrown into unlikely situations? Fantasy elements? My god, I can almost feel the franchise coming. Netflix has a great addition with this one.

Bridesmaids Director Paul Feig Is Directing The School For Good And Evil

I don’t think there could have been another perfect choice for the director for The School for Good and Evil than Paul Feig. The legendary director has produced some of the biggest comedic hits in the last ten years. For example, Feig directed the smash-hit Bridesmaids back in 2011, the 2016 remake of Ghostbusters, the Emilia Clarke Christmas comedy Last Christmas, the comedy thriller, A Simple Favor, and so many others.

Besides movies, Paul Feig has also directed multiple episodes of several incredible sitcoms, such as The Office, Arrested Development, Parks and Recreation, and 30 Rock. The School for Good and Evil novels have an amazing comedic element to them, and I can only imagine what a comedic director like Paul Feig will bring to the table in this new film.

Finding Neverland Screenwriter David Magee Wrote The Screenplay For The School For Good And Evil

When it comes to an adapted screenplay, you always have to make sure that you find the right person to do it, because with novels, there are so many details that need to somehow make it into the movie. The School for Good and Evil found its screenwriter in David Magee.

Magee is a perfect choice, because not only has he been around the business for some time, he’s had plenty of experience in writing fantasy, working on films such as the Academy-Award winning Life of Pi, the Disney sequel Mary Poppins Returns, and wrote the screenplay for Finding Neverland, the story of the author who created the legendary character, Peter Pan. Truly, he has great experience up his sleeves, and I’m eager to see what he’ll do with the fantastic story that is The School for Good and Evil.

The School For Good And Evil Has Finished Filming 

As you can expect for a film that already has a trailer, The School for Good and Evil finished production for their film not too long ago. From a tweet on Twitter from Netflix Geeked, it was confirmed back in July of 2021 that filming had wrapped on the film and was entering into the post-production phases. 

Watch The Trailer For The School For Good And Evil 

If you haven’t yet seen the trailer for The School for Good and Evil, be sure to watch it now, as you won’t want to miss out on the magic. 

With an amazing cast, awesome story, and some really cool looking set pieces featured in the trailer, The School for Good and Evil is looking to be an amazing addition to Netflix’s original film line-up. I can’t wait for this movie to pop up as part of the 2022 Netflix movie schedule. I’m practically counting down the days.
