Comedy-drama Sex Education has taken Netflix by storm since it first launched on the streaming giant. A fourth season is now looking like it could be on the cards following the events of the season three finale. The hit show’s creator Laurie Nunn has teased writing another season which could touch upon intimacy during the coronavirus pandemic. 

Season four could be on the way to Netflix as the third season ended on a number of cliffhangers. 

Maeve Wiley (played by Emma Mackey) went off to America on a gifted and talented scheme, leaving her new romantic partner Otis (Asa Butterfield) behind. 

But fans are more interested in seeing Otis reignite his relationship with popular student Ruby (Mimi Keene).

So how long can avid viewers wait until they find out what happened to their favourite characters? 

Creator Nunn is waiting to see if a fourth season will be commissioned and there is a possibility the pandemic may influence future episodes. 

She said: “Moordale feels like a bit of a utopia… it’s quite nice to keep it separate.

“But I do think, because the show is so much about intimacy, and our idea of intimacy has completely changed now because of Covid.

“If I was to write a series four trying to think about that, thematically, [it] would be interesting.

“And to be honest, as writers, we’re all thinking about sex and intimacy in a different way, because of what the world’s been through.” 

So can viewers expect to see an abundance of hand sanitiser and characters social distancing in an upcoming series? 

Or will Nunn keep Covid out of Sex Education altogether and give fans a break from worrying about the pandemic?

The first season of Sex Education had 40 million viewers, and the fanbase has only continued to grow.

Reflecting on being inundated with letters after the season aired Nunn told iNews: “So many women have experienced assault, sexual assault, and harassment.”

She also received a host of letters about ‘vaginismus’, the fear of penetration that causes vaginal muscles to tighten. 

“I get a lot of letters from women saying that they didn’t know that their problem had a name, that they felt very seen, seeing a character go through that on screen,” she added. 

“It’s sad to think that it’s a problem that affects so many women, but it’s a good thing to try and de-stigmatise it.”  

Nunn said it was always her intention to create a drama which used comedy to bring in a host of serious sexual topics. 

She explained: “As I started developing the characters, it quickly became clear that it was a way to have conversations about certain sensitive subject matter, and to talk about things like consent and body positivity.

“And hopefully do it in a way with humour. So it doesn’t feel preachy. And to be honest, to try and right some of the wrongs that I think bad SRE [Sex and Relationships Education] at school has done and continues to do.”

Sex Education is available to watch on Netflix.
