SEX Education has welcomed Emmy award winning actor and Schitt’s Creek star Dan Levy to its season 4 cast.
Netflix announced the news and revealed a glimpse of the star playing Thomas Molloy, a famous author and Maeve’s US course tutor at her Ivy League college.
Thomas looks absolutely nothing like Levy’s former alter ego in Schitt’s Creek, the fashionista David Rose.
He is seen with a beard and curly hair, and is wearing glasses, a flannel shirt, a cardigan, and jeans turned up.
A description of season 4 reveals: “Over in the US, Maeve (Emma Mackey) is living her dream at prestigious Wallace University, being taught by cult author Thomas Molloy. Otis (Asa Butterfield) is pining after her, whilst adjusting to not being an only child at home, or the only therapist on campus…”
The season follows the closure of Moordale Secondary, with Otis and Eric now facing a new frontier – their first day at Cavendish Sixth Form College.
The description continues: “Otis is nervous about setting up his new clinic, whilst Eric is praying they won’t be losers again.
“But Cavendish is a culture shock for all the Moordale students – they thought they were progressive but this new college is another level.
“There’s daily yoga in the communal garden, a strong sustainability vibe and a group of kids who are popular for being… kind.
“Viv (Chinenye Ezeudu) is totally thrown by the college’s student-led, non-competitive approach, while Jackson is still struggling to get over Cal.

“Meanwhile Aimee tries something new by taking an Art A Level and Adam grapples with whether mainstream education is for him.”
Also joining the cast is Doctor Who’s Thaddea Graham, alongside Marie Reuther (Kamikaze) and newcomers Felix Mufti, Anthony Lexa, Alexandra James, Reda Elazouar, Bella Maclean and Imani Yahshua.
Patricia Allison, who plays Ola, announced she would be making no appearances in season four.
Tanya Reynolds, who played alien-obsessed Lily, along with Simone Ashley, who starred as Olivia, will also not be returning.
Simone was forced to leave Sex Education after starring in another flagship Netflix series, Bridgerton.
Filming is currently underway in Wales and will continue into 2023, according to the streaming giant.
