Why will Emma Mackey not Reprise her Role in Season 5?

Earlier, the Sex Education actress teased the fans of the show about her potential exit from the show because, she believes the show was imminent, and gracefully leave the role and not play a character playing a 17-year-old high school student who is “stuck in time” because every cast member is 30, and it is weird for her.

“It’s a blessing because it is a launchpad, and it is something that has given us opportunities in different ways but it’s something that I want to gracefully exit from, and be happy that it exists and protect it and enjoy it in the time that it has existed in but yeah, it needs to be left alone now I think.”

The fans would be disappointed to know that other cast members are making an exit from the show, one such instance is of Ncuti Gatwa, as he shared an Instagram post with the caption “Last day. Last time. Bye bubs, thank you for all the lessons and for all the strength.” Ncuti Gatwa’s exit was not a big surprise because he will be playing the lead role in Doctor Who, however, his exit will hurt the popularity of the show.
