'Sex Education' is to end after the upcoming fourth series, which will be released on September 21st.

Laurie Nunn, who created the Netflix teen comedy-drama, has confirmed the upcoming season will be the last, but she believes it is "the right time" for the show to "graduate".

In a letter to fans posted on Instagram, she wrote: "A lot has happened since our first writers room in 2017, when we spent a month in a cramped office above a sex shop, talking about what it felt like to go through puberty. The painful awkwardness, first crushes and big, big feelings.

"We wanted to make a show that would answer some of the questions we all used to have about love, sex, friendship, and our bodies. Something that would have helped our inner teenagers feel a little less alone. It's been overwhelming seeing how the show has connected with people around the world, and we hope it's made some of you feel a little less alone too.

"Writing this feels bittersweet, as we've decided the fourth season will also be the final instalment of our show. This was not an easy decision to make, but as the themes and stories of the new season crystallised, it became clear that this was the right time to graduate. (sic)"

Laurie also admitted she feels indebted to the show's "brilliant writers, cast and crew", and they "can't wait" for viewers to see the upcoming final season.

She added: "We are incredibly proud of Sex Education and feel indebted to our brilliant writers, cast and crew who put so much heart into making every episode. They have worked tirelessly to bring you this final season, and we can't wait to share it with you.

"Goodbyes are the worst, but let's celebrate all the good times we've had. Laurie."

The trailer for the fourth series has also been released, featuring returning stars such as Asa Butterfield (Otis Milburn), Gillian Anderson (Jean Milburn), Ncuti Gatwa (Eric Effiong), and Emma Mackey (Maeve Wiley).
