What Sex Education's Cast Is Doing Next | Screen Rant

Sex Education season 3 is currently streaming on Netflix, and here’s what the cast is doing next. The British series first premiered in January 2019 and has been a hit on the streaming service ever since. The story initially begins when Otis Milburn and Maeve Wiley start a sex clinic at school, giving the students advice in exchange for money. However, the story of Sex Education has grown beyond the scope of its initial premise, exploring several other characters that have become a major part of the ensemble cast. 

Some of the actors in Sex Education had established careers before joining the cast of the show. For others, the series was their first major role — Dua Saleh’s turn as Cal in season 3 being an example. Netflix announced the renewal of Sex Education, which will be back for season 4 in what might be its final season (though that has yet to be confirmed). In the interim, the cast is busy filming, or preparing to film, other films and TV shows.

She’ll join a fantastic cast, which includes Olivia Colman as the narrator and Doctor Who’s Matt Smith as the titular character. Fans should also expect Allison to reprise her role in season 4 of Sex Education.  

Chinenye Ezeudu will likely be back in Sex Education season 4. In the meantime, however, fans will likely get to see the actress as Chinen in The School for Good and Evil, which follows a group of students who arrive at the titular school to become either heroes or villains.

George Robinson was introduced as Isaac in Sex Education season 2 and became a staple of the series, shifting from antagonist-like character to a sympathetic figure in season 3. Elsewhere, Robinson’s next project will be in the TV series Dalgliesh, which is about the titular character’s career as a mystery-solving detective. The series is adapted from the novels of author P.D. James. Robinson stars as Henry Cardwardine in an episode, which begins airing November 1, 2021.

Simone Ashley may have the highest-profile role thus far following Sex Education season 3. Ashley was cast to play Kate Sharma in season 2 of Bridgerton. Kate will be the primary love interest for Anthony, the eldest of the Bridgerton siblings. A first look clip was released, showcasing Kate’s exchange with Anthony, but a season 2 release date has not yet been announced. Ashley will follow that up with the animated short film Bulldog, in which she will voice the character of Lori. 

Rakhee Thakrar, who plays English teacher Emily Sands, has big things coming up. The actress will appear in two TV shows: as Maya in Rules of the Game, which was recently announced, and as Bel Richmond in Karen Pirie, a crime drama. But perhaps most exciting is Thakrar’s role in Wonka, which will follow the adventures of a young Willy Wonka. The film, which is currently filming, also stars Timothée Chalamet, Olivia Colman, Keegan-Michael Key, Sally Hawkins, and Rowan Atkinson. It’s expected to release in theaters in 2023. 

As Colin Hendricks, a teacher at Moordale, Jim Howick shows off a goofier side. Aside from Sex Education, Howick can currently be seen in the TV series Hollington Drive, a thriller that premiered on ITV September 29, 2021. Howick plays DS Parks, a detective called in to investigate a missing persons case. It's a far cry from the role of Colin, that's for sure.

Outside of being an actress, who is most notable for having starred in Girls, Jemima Kirke is also a painter. But she hasn’t left her acting career behind and, following her turn as Moordale’s new Headteacher Hope Haddon in Sex Education season 3, Kirke will next star in the Hulu series Conversations with Friends. She’ll star as Melissa in all 12 episodes of the drama, which is based on the book by Sally Rooney. The show is expected to premiere at some point in 2022.
