Dan Levy enters the Sex Education world.

Dan Levy, co-creator and star of Schitt's Creek, will appear in season four of Netflix's "Sex Education" as Thomas Molloy, a well-known novelist who is assigned to serve as Maeve, portrayed by actress Emma Mackey, in her U.S. course tutor at her Ivy League institution. Dan Levy shared a photo of Emma Mackey along with the news announcement on his social media accounts.

Dan Levy is thrilled about his next significant part in Sex Education season four, which will follow his six-season run on Schitt's Creek where he portrayed the iconic role of David Rose and shared during an interview with GQ in 2019 that he cried for five straight hours after filming the finale episode. Dan explained that it was really hard for him to say goodbye and it was a really emotional day in a whole for everyone to say goodbye to the characters they have loved. 

In addition to Dan Levy, other celebrities appearing in Sex Education season four include Marie Reuther, Thaddea Graham, Felix Mufti, Alexandra James, Imani Yahshua, and Anthony Lexa. Other than the new cast members joining the show, Asa Butterfield, Gillian Anderson, Ncuti Gatwa, Aimee-Lou Wood, Connor Swindells, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Mimi Keene, George Robinson, Chinenye Ezeudu, Dua Saleh, Alistair Petrie, and Samantha Spiro are among the cast members who are reprising their roles.

Actress Patricia Allison, who portrayed the role of Ola on the show, announced earlier that she won’t be returning for the fourth season as new opportunities have come her way and she had been playing Ola for almost three years now, after which she thought that maybe she could try out something else. Patricia, however, did not forget to mention that she loved every bit of her character and was very grateful to be a part of the show.

Along with Patricia, Tanya Reynolds, who played Lily on the show, also announced that she won’t be returning for the fourth season and shared with Radio Times in July that it’s just a natural progression of the show when it has a big ensemble cast and so many characters, it is okay to let go of the older characters to make space for the new ones to come and settle down. Tanya added that it’s the right way to make a successful show and that is how it should be done.

Simone Ashley, who played the role of Olivia Hanan on the show, will also not be returning since she was roped in to play Kate Sharma on the second season of Bridgerton and received massive success and appreciation. She will be reprising her role as Kate Sharma/Lady Kate Bridgerton opposite Anthony Bridgerton, played by actor Jonathan Bailey, for the third season.

The next season of Sex Education is presently under production and is expected to air in 2023. Following the failure of Moordale Secondary, Otis and Eric now confront a new challenge: their first day at Cavendish Sixth Form College. Eric hopes they won't lose again while Otis worries about starting his new clinic, according to a statement from Netflix confirming the start of season 4's production.

However, Cavendish is a culture shock for all of the Moordale students since, despite their perception that they were progressive, this new institution is on another level. At the esteemed Wallace University in the US, where Thomas Molloy (Dan Levy), a cult novelist, is her lecturer, Maeve is working toward her objective. Otis adjusts to not being the only child at home or the lone therapist at school while yearning to be with Maeve.

Seasons 1–3 are currently available on Netflix.
