Sex Education Season 4, Netflix
Not to give too much away, but season three ended with quite a big question mark hanging over it so season four will presumably try to tie up a few of those loose ends for viewers. With Maeve in America and Moordale closed, Otis must try to find his footing at free-spirited Cavendish College – but this time, he’s not the only sex therapist on campus. Asa Butterfield, Ncuti Gatwa, Emma Mackey and Gillian Anderson all return for the fourth and final season (sob).

Winston charts a deadly course through the hotel’s mysterious underworld in a harrowing attempt to seize the hotel where he will eventually take his throne.

Liam (played by Daryl McCormack of Bad Sisters fame), is an aspiring and ambitious young writer who eagerly accepts a tutoring position at the family estate of his idol – renowned author J.M. Sinclair (Richard E. Grant). However, it’s not long before Liam realises that he is ensnared in a web of family secrets, resentment, and retribution. Sinclair, his wife Hélène (Julie Delpy), and their son Bertie (Stephen McMillan) all guard a dark past… one that threatens Liam’s future as well as their own. As the lines between master and protégé blur, class, ambition, and betrayal become a dangerous combination in this taut noir thriller.
