Is She Leaving ‘Sex Education’ Now?

Emma Mackey, the star of Netflix’s hit show Sex Education, has announced her departure from the show after four seasons. During an interview with RadioTimes at the BAFTA Awards, where she won the Rising Star award, Mackey confirmed that she would not be returning for a potential fifth season.


She revealed that she had just finished filming the fourth season and had said goodbye to her character Maeve. In Season 4, Mackey had already taken a step back, and her character was reportedly less prevalent due to the introduction of new characters. Despite this, Mackey expressed her excitement about being back on set and not knowing what was going to happen next, as the plot was still unfolding during filming.

Are Emma Mackey and Asa Butterfield dating?

We would love to see Mackey and Butterfield date in real life, but they aren’t. They’re just really good actors who have really great chemistry.

Asa appears to be single, so maybe we could see a possible relationship between Mackey and Butterfield in the future. Of course, that’s if Asa isn’t taken off the market by then.

Emma Mackey Was Only Linked to One Person in the Past

Although many viewers of “Sex Education” may be rooting for an Otis and Maeve relationship in the comedy-drama, it is a different story for the actors in real life. Their romantic adventures are kept secret in real life as they do not post about it on social media or discuss it in interviews.

However, like Asa Butterfield, who plays Otis, was once linked to actress Ella Purnell, Mackey also dated an actor, Dan Whitlam. The pair reportedly began dating as far back as January 2018, with the actress making their relationship Instagram official in a since-deleted post.
