There will not be any major cast changes for Sex Education season 4 as Ncuti Gatwa will remain the same. Tatwa portrays the charismatic Eric Effiong in the Netflix series which follows a group of teenagers at the fictional Moordale Secondary School as they navigate their love lives and sexual relationships.
Aside from covering a wide range of topics, Sex Education emphasizes diverse perspectives on topics such as sexuality, love, and friendship for young adults. Eric Gatwa plays the sidekick to Otis (Asa Butterfield) and was Adam's (Connor Swindell's) ex-boyfriend at the end of season 3.
As a result of a successful season 3, many actors have announced their exit from Sex Education in advance of season 4. In addition to Simone Ashley, Patricia Allison, and Tanya Reynolds, this list also includes others. Also, Rakhee Thakkar, who portrays Emily Sands, the school's beloved English teacher, has announced her departure from Sex Education.
Some have begun to wonder if Gatwa will join the cast after so many have left the series behind. Gatwa will take on his biggest role yet in the upcoming season of Doctor Who, as he will play the titular character. In light of this upcoming commitment, there was some doubt as to whether he would be able to participate in the fourth season of Sex Education.
However, Gatwa will not be absent from Sex Education due to his busy schedule, Variety reports. It has been confirmed that the star will return for season 4. Gatwa is scheduled to reprise his role as Eric in the new season, which has yet to start production. Production is scheduled to begin this fall.
Gatwa's return should provide some reassurance to fans since Eric's Sex Education story remains incomplete. The season 3 finale witnessed Eric break Adam's heart when he admitted to kissing another boy, although the two had problems under the surface before he admitted to the cheating.
In spite of the fact that many fans would like to see Eric and Adam reunite in Sex Education season 4, this is also an opportunity for Eric and Adam to grow apart from one another. Gatwa's return confirms Eric's ability to deal effectively with the consequences of his cheating and breakup. As a result of the return of Gatwa, viewers would have received a great deal less closure on this matter if Gatwa had not returned.
The fourth season of Sex Education is already facing several changes, including cast departures and the closure of Moordale. So it is a relief to know that the series will not also be losing one of its most beloved characters. Considering certain storylines have now been completed due to a number of departures, it is possible that Gatwa may receive additional screen time.
In part, this is due to the schedule that Sex Education and Doctor Who worked out so that he can participate in both shows at the same time. In light of the frequent departures of cast members, it will be interesting to see who else will remain in Sex Education season 4. For now, fans are confident that at least Gatwa will return for the fourth season.
