Aimee Lou Wood has opened up about when Sex Education could possibly end as fans eagerly await season 4, saying that the Netflix series ‘has to come to an end’ eventually.
Last year, the third season of the comedy-drama saw a massive shift occur at Moordale, as Otis (Asa Butterfield) and Maeve (Emma Mackey) finally seemed as though they might get together.
Aimee began seeing Otis’ mum Jean Milburn (Gillian Anderson) for therapy sessions after struggling to be intimate with her boyfriend, while all the students faced the closure of their school after finding out it was being sold to developers.
In a recent interview, Aimee, 26, admitted that she knows ‘basically nothing’ about where the story is going to lead in the fourth season, saying that she feels ‘confused’, considering the school is ‘gone’.
Nonetheless, despite demand from many fans to keep the show going as long as possible, she acknowledged that at some point, the time will come to bid Sex Education farewell.
‘We’re going to have to 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,’ she told Variety.
‘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.”’
Aimee added that while she knew ‘a few little things’ about her character’s upcoming storyline, she doesn’t know ‘much’.
‘I hope they’re going to continue to flourish because I felt like they were growing up in season three,’ she added.
‘It will be interesting to see them outside of the school more and in their own lives.’
While little is known about where the narrative will lead in season four, a recent casting call has shed light on new characters that are expected to be introduced.
In November, one of the show’s creators put out a casting call that confirmed two new additions called Abbi and Kent, with a document describing the former as a young trans woman with ‘a 90s Winona Ryder vibe’, who is ‘the leader of the group’ and is ‘sunny, magnetic, generous and loyal’.
The description added that Abbi was ‘kicked out of the house by her conservative parents’ after she came out as trans and used to be religious, but has ‘had to move away from her faith’.
Kent is Abbi’s boyfriend and is trans, with the pair described as the ‘ultimate power couple’ and Kent as ‘goofy, forgetful and a great listener’.
Sex Education is available to watch on Netflix.
