Sex Education is one of Netflix’s most popular shows, with a legion of loyal fans behind it. So it might seem a bit surprising that it’s future is so uncertain. But a lot of people, including some of the cast, think the show should end while all the characters are still teens instead of following them through life… and we hate to admit it but it’s a good point

The whole conversation is pretty confusing, and we’re not alone in thinking this as one of the cast actually feels the same way.

Asa Butterfield revealed he understands why the show might need to end soon but  would be happy for it to continue on. As he told the Radio Times, “I don’t know how long they’ll want us to go. I know no one wants it to go on forever because it’s a coming-of-age story and people eventually have to come of age.”

“You can’t just keep coming of age because then where’s the ending? Where’s the resolution? So ‘I don’t know’ is my answer. We’ll have to wait and see.”

He continued, “I love the show and everyone involved – the cast and crew – and we have a lot of fun. So I have a great time and I’m not in a hurry to leave.”

The speculation over the show finishing comes after comments made by some of the cast members. Before season three Aimee-Lou Wood told the Radio Times, “There’s a part of me that could just do it forever. But there’s also a part of me that’s like, ‘No – we’ve all got to go and do different things and play different parts.'”

“We can’t be like 50 saying, ‘Freshers week!’ So it’s a weird one. It’s a bittersweet thing because it probably is, even if it’s not this series, it probably is closer now to ending than it is to the start.”

While Emma Mackey sparked rumours the show was ending after she told Hunger Magazine, “Sex Education is so momentous as a concept, as a show, and the cast are phenomenal. I genuinely care about them all a lot and I made lifelong friends. But the bittersweet nature of it is that I also can’t be 17 my whole life.”

We know for sure that there will be a fourth season with filming set to begin soon, so at least we can look forward to that!
