Dan Levy set to join Sex Education cast as Ncuti Gatwa return confirmed

Aug 19, 2022

Dan Levy has joined the cast of Netflix hit Sex Education as filming for series four of the show begins in Wales.

The Canadian actor, 39, is best known for playing David Rose in Schitt’s Creek, a show he co-created with his father Eugene Levy.

Dan is set to play Thomas Molloy in the comedy, a famous author who acts as Maeve Wiley’s course tutor as she heads to study at a prestigious university in the US.

Confirming the news, Netflix shared a photo of Dan in his role and wrote: “Sex Education Season 4 is now in production — and Dan Levy has joined the cast as Mr. Molloy!”

Sharing the same photo of him alongside his co-star Emma Mackey, who plays Maeve, Dan wrote: “Sex Ed. Season 4. VERY serious news.”

Ncuti Gatwa, who was recently announced as the new Doctor in Doctor Who, will also return to his role as Eric Effiong for the fourth series of Sex Education.

Asa Butterfield, Gillian Anderson, Aimee Lou Wood, Emma Mackey and Connor Swindells will also make their highly-anticipated return.

Filming of series four is currently underway in Wales and will continue until 2023.

The upcoming series will begin shortly after the closure of Moordale Secondary as Otis, played by Butterfield, and Eric face their first day at Cavendish Sixth Form College.

Otis is nervous about setting up his new sex clinic, whilst Eric is praying they will not be losers again.

However Cavendish is a culture shock for all the Moordale students as they come face to face with the college’s progressive students.

The Moordale students are shocked to find daily yoga in the communal garden, a strong sustainability focus and a group of teenagers who are popular for being kind.

Moordale’s top student Viv, played by Chinenye Ezeudu, is totally thrown by the college’s student-led, non-competitive approach, while former school sports star Jackson, portrayed by Kedar Williams-Stirling, is still struggling to get over his love interest Cal, played by Dua Saleh.

Wood’s namesake Aimee tries something new by taking an Art A-level and son of Moordale’s disgraced former headteacher Adam, played by Swindells, grapples with whether mainstream education is for him.

Meanwhile, over in the US, Maeve is living her dream at the prestigious Wallace University, being taught by cult author Thomas Molloy.

Back in the UK Otis is pining after her, whilst adjusting to not being an only child at home, or the only therapist on campus.

Alongside Levy, the cast will also welcome Doctor Who star Thaddea Graham and Marie Reuther, best known for her role in 2021 TV series Kamikaze.

Newcomers Felix Mufti, Anthony Lexa, Alexandra James, Reda Elazouar, Bella Maclean and Imani Yahshua will all make their Sex Education debuts.
