Simone Ashley has broken our hearts after revealing she won’t reprise the role of mean girl Olivia in Sex Education Season 4, thereby revealing that she wouldn’t reprise the role of mean girl Olivia in Season 4. Just days after Sex Education season three dropped in September 2021.
Netflix announced a fourth season of the sex-positive high school drama would be dropping on our screens. The series follows a group of teens as they navigate their bodies and their sexuality, often with the help of their sex ed instructor, Mr. McPhee. The series was created by Emily Jayne and stars Jay Duplass, Shelley Hennig, and Lauren Ashley Carter. Season four is expected to drop on Netflix in 2022. Season four follows the Gallagher siblings as they navigate their rapidly changing world. The show has been praised for its frank and realistic portrayal of the LGBTQ+ community, with the show exploring topics such as gender and sexual identity.
Showrunner Emily Jayne has promised that season four will continue to push the envelope, exploring new topics and exploring “new territory for the show.” The show has received critical acclaim, with many calling it “the best show about sex you’re not watching,” and is a Netflix original. Season four is expected to drop on Netflix in 2022.
While Gillian Anderson (who plays Jean Milburn), Asa Butterfield (Otis), Emma Mackey (Maeve), and Ncuti Gatwa (Eric) would be back for the next series, Simone Ashley has now announced Olivia will not be returning.
Simone has played the role of Olivia, best friend of Ruby and Anwar, in the British Netflix series since season 1. She’s appeared in all three seasons of the series so far but it’s now been confirmed that her time on the show has come to an end. Simone has been with the show for a year and a half now, but the decision to end her time on the show has not come as a shock to the show’s creators.
In episode 1, we see Simone playing the role of Olivia in a scene where she’s visiting Ruby and Anwar, who happen to be friends of hers. Also, in episode 2, we see Simone playing the role of Olivia in a scene where she’s visiting Ruby and Anwar who happen to be friends of hers. Fans of the show loved watching Simone as Olivia alongside Ruby (played by Mimi Keene) and Anwar (Chaneil Kular) aka the Untouchables. But it’s understandable that Simone might want to turn her attention towards Bridegerton season 3, especially with Kate Sharma being a lead character.
