Sex Education creator on possible spin-offs: “There’s potential for more”
Laurie Nunn has said she might not be done with Moordale just yet...
The final season of Sex Education is almost here, and while creator Laurie Nunn has been clear that this definitively the end of the series as we know it, it seems there may still be potential from the world of the show.
Speaking with Netflix Tudum, Nunn said that the fourth season wasn't originally intended to the show's last, but that during the process of crafting it "it just started to feel very clear that the stories were coming to an end, the characters were being left in a place that I felt really good about it".
She continued: "I felt happy for them, and I felt like I’ve said everything that I want to say with these characters at this time."
However, when asked whether we've seen the last of Moordale and its characters, Nunn said: "I’m definitely taking a break and thinking about other things. But Moordale is a really rich world, and writing about teenagers is always a lot of fun. So, I think that there’s always potential for more to be explored in that world."
Does this mean that we could expect spin-offs for some of our favourites - even as central cast members such as Ncuti Gatwa and Emma Mackey move on to other projects? It seems we will have to wait and see.

He said: "It was very hard; it was such a big show," he began. "When you’re telling stories that haven’t been seen before, there’s always a battle as to how to tell them. It wasn’t always joyous. I feel like we’ve outgrown it and we’ve given everything we can to it."
