Sex Education series four: Netflix drop emotional last trailer as show's final ... trends now
The fourth and final season of Sex Education dropped on Netflix on Thursday to a lukewarm reception from critics.
As the show was made available online, the streaming giant released a final trailer, encompassing a blend of new and old scenes set to evoke nostalgia among fans.
It begins with a profound monologue by Otis (Asa Butterfield) as he reflects on his 'awkward and messy' teenage years.
Yet the emotional scene is soon interrupted with a cut to Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) urging his friend to send a 'd**k pic, root to tip'.
The final series tracks the teenagers as they leave Moordale Secondary to start Cavendish Sixth Form College.

While they may have considered themselves to be progressive they have a shock with their new set of classmates.
Viv (Chinenye Ezeudu) is 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 Swindells) grapples with whether mainstream education is for him.
Meanwhile, Jean (Gillian Anderson) is faced with the realities of motherhood after welcoming a baby girl, with the identity of the father set to be revealed in season four.
Over in the States, Maeve (Emma Mackey) is living her dream at prestigious Wallace University, being taught by cult author Thomas Molloy but looks set to face a reunion with Otis, much to fan's excitement.
While the final season has been hotly-anticipated by fans, critics have been left underwhelmed by the show.
The Guardian's Lucy Mangan branded the season 'one long list of frustrations', noting 'the overstuffed cast means that everyone and everything is underdeveloped' in her three star review.
The Telegraph's Benji Wilson also awarded it three stars, lamenting that 'a series that once eschewed soppiness ends up encrusted in schmaltz.'
