Dan Levy is going from the Rosebud Motel to the Ivy League.
The Emmy-winning Schitt's Creek actor has joined the upcoming fourth season of the hit Netflix original series, Sex Education. According to the streamer, Levy will play Thomas Molloy, a famous author and Maeve's (Emma Mackey) U.S. course tutor at her prestigious Ivy League college.
The other actors joining the new season are Thaddea Graham (Doctor Who), Marie Reuther (Kamikaze) and newcomers Felix Mufti, Anthony Lexa, Alexandra James, Reda Elazouar, Bella Maclean, and Imani Yahshua. There will also be returning favorites including Asa Butterfield, Gillian Anderson, Ncuti Gatwa, and more.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Season 4 is a "creative reset" for the series after the third season ended with the closing of Moordale High School.
Sex Education will be Levy's first regular series role since Schitt's Creek ended in 2020. The final season swept the Emmys, taking home seven Primetime Emmys including Outstanding Comedy Series. Since then Levy returned to the screen, appearing in the HBO movie Coastal Elites, the Hulu queer holiday rom-com, Happiest Season, and voicing a character in Netflix's Q-Force.
"I think that [Dan] is so perfect because when he really brings it home and he wants to connect, he comes from a place of true understanding of what the story is and how heavy and hard it is," Happiest Season star Kristen Stewart told Logo back in 2019. "It can then be funny, but first it needs to be completely understood from the inside."
More Dan Levy on our screens is always good news. Sex Education Season 4 is currently filming in Wales.
