Stop everything: Dan Levy is joining the cast of Netflix’s Sex Education

From “Ewww David” to “Yes, Sir”: Schitt’s Creek’s Dan Levy is joining the cast of Netflix’s Sex Education.

In 2015, Dan Levy entered our cultural consciousness as spoiled yet surprisingly kind-hearted David Rose, the flamboyant oldest child of the wealthy Rose family who suddenly lost their millions. Netflix’s Schitt’s Creek soon became one of the most beloved shows on our screens, praised for being a beacon for uplifting and positive LGBTQ* stories, of which Levy was at the centre.

So, in good news for the show’s many fans, following the series’ finale in 2020, Levy is joining the cast of yet another Netflix smash-hit: Sex Education.

Yes, you’ve read that right. Levy is about to go from “Ewww David” to “Yes, Sir” as he steps into the role of Thomas Molloy, a famous author and Maeve’s (Emma Mackey)US course tutor at her Ivy League college for season four.

Fromwhat we know so far, it seems season four will play out like so. 

Following the closure of Moordale Secondary, Otis (Asa Butterfield) and Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) now face a new frontier – their first day at Cavendish Sixth Form College. Otis is nervous about setting up his new clinic, whilst Eric is praying they won’t be losers again. But Cavendish is a culture shock for all the Moordale students – they thought they were progressive but this new college is another level. There’s daily yoga in the communal garden, a strong sustainability vibe and a group of kids who are popular for being… kind?! Viv (Chinenye Ezeudu) is totally thrown by the college’s student-led, non-competitive approach, while Jackson (Kedar Williams-Stirling) is still struggling to get over Cal (Dua Saleh). 

Aimee (Aimee Lou Wood) tries something new by taking an Art A Level and Adam (Connor Ryan Swindells) grapples with whether mainstream education is for him. Over in the US, Maeve is living her dream at prestigious Wallace University, being taught by cult author Thomas Molloy. Otis is pining after her, while adjusting to not being an only child at home, or the only therapist on campus. Exciting times indeed….
