The cast is too old for Sex Education
While the characters have warmed into our hearts, we might have to say goodbye to them soon. However excellent, the cast is getting too old to play teenagers. When the show aired, the majority of the cast was in their early to mid-twenties. With some of them entering their 30s soon, the creators will be forced to cast a new generation to continue telling the story of high school ups and downs.
Aimee Lou Wood, who essays the role of Aimee Gibbs, has expressed that she is not eager to play a fresher at 45.
“We’re going to have to [end the show] because I’m fast approaching 30. We could go to uni, I guess, but I don’t particularly want to be playing a fresher when I’m 45. It’s going to have to come to an end, which is sad, but also I feel like you should always leave them wanting more. Always end on a high instead of having people go, ‘I really wish they would stop,” she says.
But we don’t have to worry about that yet, as the cast is for sure to return for the last season. Netflix has already renewed the show for season 4 in 2021. Along with the original cast, viewers will be introduced to two new trans students, Abbi and Kent.
