As the highly anticipated fourth and final season of Netflix’s Sex Education approaches, fans are eager to know what’s in store for their beloved characters. With Otis, Eric, Maeve, Aimee, and the rest of Moordale’s students heading off to a new college after their school’s closure in season three, there is one burning question on everyone’s mind: Will Olivia be back?
The Mystery Surrounding Olivia’s Return
Played by Bridgerton’s Simone Ashley, viewers wonder if they’ll see her ditch her Regency-era gowns to join Ruby, Otis, and the rest of the students as they go to college. However, several reasons suggest Olivia won’t be in season four. Here’s what we know so far.
Focusing on Main Characters and Storylines
One potential reason is that with only one season left, the showrunners may choose to focus primarily on the core ensemble of characters and wrap up their storylines, instead of introducing new ones or reviving old ones. This means that even though Olivia may have had an interesting arc in previous seasons, it might not fit within the narrative framework of the concluding season.
Scheduling Conflicts and Other Projects
Another reason for Olivia’s absence could be related to Simone Ashley’s busy schedule. As a successful actress, she has a number of other projects in the pipeline, including the second season of the hit series Bridgerton which may have caused scheduling conflicts that prevented her from reprising her role as Olivia in Sex Education.
Possible Cameo Appearance
Given the character’s popularity and the interest surrounding her possible return, there is still a chance that Olivia might make a cameo appearance in the final season of Sex Education. However, as of now, there is no official confirmation on this.
What to Expect in Sex Education Season 4
Netflix has announced that Sex Education season 4 will premiere in September 2023. An official trailer for the upcoming season was released on Tuesday, Sept. 12, 2023. Here’s what we can look forward to:
- A new college setting for Moordale’s students, providing fresh challenges and opportunities for growth.
- The evolution and resolution of relationships between main characters, such as Otis, Maeve, and Eric.
- Potential new characters and guest stars that might shake things up in the group dynamics.
- Closure on various storylines, offering satisfying conclusions for fans who have followed the series since its inception.
Waiting for Closure: Saying Goodbye to Moordale
It has been a long wait for fans since the third season of Sex Education premiered back in September 2021. As they anxiously anticipate the upcoming final season, viewers remain hopeful for a fitting farewell to the flawed but lovable characters that have resonated with so many audiences worldwide.
Whether or not Olivia (Simone Ashley) will reprise her role remains uncertain at this point. Regardless, it is safe to say that fans are excited to see how the riveting stories of Otis, Maeve, Eric, Aimee, and the rest will wrap up in the ultimate finale of this incredible coming-of-age series. Stay tuned for the release of Sex Education season 4 on Netflix in September 2023!
