‘Sex Education’ S4 Review: Oversexed

Sex Education (★★★★☆) created by Laurie Nunn, has evolved from a quirky teen sex comedy into a fan-favorite hit and astonishingly graceful look at teenage sexuality.The fourth and final season finds the teens spending their last semester at a new school, Cavendish College, an incredibly queer/artsy school. Otis (Asa Butterfield) is struggling to juggle his long-distance relationship with Maeve (Emma Mackey) as she studies in America, his mother Jean’s (Gillian Anderson) new baby, and a rival sex therapist (Thaddea Graham) at school.The show’s two eternal standouts, Otis’s bestie Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) and Maeve’s bestie Aimee (Aimee Lou Wood), also return with the former trying to handle his evolving queerness while the latter finds artistic therapy for her trauma.Meanwhile, Adam (Connor Swindells), Eric’s bully-turned-ex-boyfriend, decides to not return to school, as Otis’ ex, Ruby (Mimi Keene), finds herself no longer popular.

Ncuti Gatwa says ‘Sex Education’ role healed “a lot of internalised hate”
Sex Education star Ncuti Gatwa has spoken about how his role in the show “undid a lot of the internalised hate [he] had”.The Rwandan-Scottish actor, who plays gay teenager Eric Effiong in the coming-of-age Netflix series, reflected on how the character had impacted his life during a recent interview with Elle.“I’ve experienced racism my whole life, and while I always believed in myself, always knew [racists] were stupid and uneducated, I guess it did misinform my view of how the world works,” he continued.“It makes you think everyone has that opinion and you’ll constantly have to fight through life – then you learn that you don’t: you can find a tribe, you can find your people.”Gatwa also thanked Sex Education creator Laurie Nunn for “giving nuance” to his “gay, Black character and gifting him to the world”.The actor went on to describe Eric as “so fierce and unashamed”, adding: “It was healing for me, and great for people to see themselves represented. It taught me the importance of representation: it’s so powerful and necessary.”Over the summer, Gatwa revealed that producers on Sex Education once spoke to him about ad-libbing lines of dialogue, saying they didn’t feel “like white people [would] understand” them.“And I was like, ‘It’s not for white people to understand’,” he said. Sex Education‘s fourth and final season is due to arrive on Netflix on September 21 – check out the official trailer here.Nunn explained the decision to bring the hit comedy-drama to an end in a letter to fans in July.“We wanted to make a show that would answer some of the questions we all used to have about love, sex, friendship, and our bodies,” she wrote.
