Sex Education Season 4 Review: A Bittersweet Farewell to Moordale’s Quirky Gang

As the final chapter of Sex Education unfolds, Otis, Eric, Maeve, and the rest of the Moordale gang embark on a bittersweet journey filled with farce, folly, empathy, and poignancy. This fourth season, while not without its frustrations, manages to maintain the show’s unique blend of cringe-comedy and heartfelt inclusivity, delivering a memorable farewell. Check out what viewers say about it.

A New Beginning

The familiar Moordale school has transformed, sold to developers, and replaced by Cavendish College – a student-led, progressive haven that challenges the status quo. This change of scenery throws our beloved characters into uncharted territory, setting the stage for their final evolution.

Character Growth

Season 4 delves deep into the personal growth of its ensemble cast. Eric, portrayed brilliantly by Ncuti Gatwa, embarks on a journey of self-discovery within his church community, touching on themes of faith, identity, and self-love. Adam’s arc, separate from the school, explores similar themes as he navigates life beyond Moordale. These character stories, especially Cal’s experience with gender dysphoria, offer some of the most compelling moments of the season.

Inclusivity and Representation

Sex Education has always been celebrated for its commitment to inclusivity, and this season is no different. New characters, including Aisha, Abbi, and Roman, bring diverse perspectives to the forefront, touching on issues like disability rights and gender identity. The series continues to champion representation, though some may find it a tad too eager to affirm without exploring the potential downsides of relentless positivity.

The Overstuffed Ensemble

With a large cast, there’s a risk of underdeveloped characters and storylines. Season 4 occasionally struggles to give each character the room they deserve, resulting in frustrating circles and unresolved plotlines. However, standout performances and the core cast’s chemistry keep the narrative engaging.

Return to Core Themes

Amidst its growing ensemble, Sex Education still manages to return to its core themes. Relationships, sexuality, and the struggles of young adulthood remain at the forefront. Otis and Maeve’s on-again, off-again dynamic may not please everyone, but it maintains the show’s emotional core.

A Departure from Humor

While the series has evolved, some viewers may miss the humor and lightness of earlier seasons. The characters’ shift towards therapy speak and delivering life lessons can feel earnest, at times overshadowing the humor that once defined the show.


Sex Education Season 4 bids farewell with a mix of emotions. While it grapples with some frustrations and a more serious tone, it still manages to capture the essence of its characters and their journey. As we say goodbye to Moordale’s quirky gang, we’re left with a reminder that growing up is never easy, but it’s a journey worth taking.


Sex Education’s final season retains its importance as a cringe-comedy that tackles vital themes, even as it bids adieu to its beloved characters. It’s a rollercoaster of emotions, offering both laughter and tears in its farewell.
