'Sex Education': Moordale students are dropping like flies ahead of Season 4
There's bad news for Tanya Reynolds' fans as she will not be continuing in the series any longer
Netflix did something right with 'Sex Education', although some of the most-popular characters will be taking a back seat starting from Season four. This is to give way to some new faces in the next installment of the series.
However, there's a bad news for Tanya Reynolds' fans as she will not be continuing in the series any longer. The actress took to social media expressing her view on this and fans are not so happy about her quitting.
The series has dropped some major characters on its journey, and we know that's evolution but it is still hard to see our favorite characters take a back seat. In a recent interview with UK’s Radio Times, Tanya stated, "I’m not returning, actually, which is sad, very sad. It’s just the natural progression of these shows – when you have such big ensemble casts and so many characters, I think you have to let a few older characters go to make way for newer ones, which is absolutely the right thing, the way it should happen."
Adding to this loss for Tanya fans, we got another spoiler for you about the school that the series was shot on. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Moordale will remain closed in Season four as the series relocates to a different school featuring a mix of new and returning characters.
However, Tanya is not the only one who called it quits with the series. Fellow Moordale alum-turned-Bridgerton breakout Simone Ashley was the first to confirm that she wouldn’t be reprising her role as Olivia. This was a huge blow to fans who were hoping to see a little more of Olivia in the next season. Based on the events of the season 3 finale, 'Sex Education' season 4 could see both the end of Moordale Secondary School and the conclusion of the Netflix show as a whole. 'Sex Education' returned to Netflix in September 2021 with a bit of a time jump, skipping over the summer and getting the kids back to school.
Season four of the series is in the pipeline but the date has not been officially announced yet. Covid protocols on set made shooting a "slow and painful" process, creator Laurie Nunn told the Evening Standard, adding, "Everybody really had to dig quite deep – there were a lot of emotions swirling around." As a result, at an estimated guess and thanks to the show's lack of any vast special effects, we can at least keep our fingers crossed for a 2022 release date.
