Netflix has just released the fourth, which is also expected to be the final season of the teen drama Sex Education. The show is bringing back fan favorites Otis, Maeve, Eric, and many other characters in the new season. One of the most intriguing and significant characters of the series also includes the role of troubled teenager Maeve Wiley, who is portrayed by the 27-year-old actress Emma Mackey.
Actress Mackey has opened up about her character and how the story unfolds. During an interview with Still Watching Netflix, she said that loves how the show portrays her and other female character’s relationships.
How Sex Education Explores Sisterhood?
Sex Education is a drama series that explores various relationship dynamics, encompassing romance and friendship. However, one of the best things, according to the show’s star Emma Macky, about the show is how its first season portrays “sisterhood.” The portrayal of feminism on the screen has been a topic of discussion for a long time.
And sometimes franchises, like Marvel Cinematic Universe, also mess up with such things. Who could forget the all-female scene during the final battle against Thanos in Avengers: Endgame? However, the Barbie actress is proud of the way the first season projects the relationship between her character and Aimee. During an interview with Still Watching Netflix, she said,
“I’m most proud of the — it’s a double thing, triple thing — but it’s the idea of, it’s the idea of sisterhood. The way we kind of broaden the idea of sisterhood in a much deeper way, in a really beautiful, nuanced, warm way.”
Not just Mackey, but her co-star Aimee Lou Wood has also shared that same. Talking about her character, who gets the support of Maeve, Olivia, Ola, Lily, and Vivienne to overcome the anxiety she experienced on the bus, she stated that it has led to her character’s growth in the series.
Is Season 4 the Final Season of Sex Education?
Sex Education has been going great for the last three seasons on the streaming giant, making it among some of the most popular shows on Netflix. However, ahead of its release, the creator of the series, Laurie Nunn, has declared that it will be the final season of the show.
“It’s the end as we know it,” she told Tudum. Nunn shared that she wasn’t certain about it being the final season when she started working on it, but soon, she realized that the stories were slowly coming to an end. “I felt happy for them, and I felt like I’ve said everything that I want to say with these characters at this time,” she said. She has also said that the fan-favorite characters will get a proper send-off in the final season.
Sex Education is streaming on Netflix.
