'Schitt's Creek' star Dan Levy joins the 'Sex Education' cast in Season 4
Dan Levy will join Sex Education's Season 4 cast as Thomas Molloy, Netflix announced this week.
The Emmy winner, who co-produced and starred in the hit TV series Schitt's Creek, will play a cult author at a prestigious university in the U.S. that Maeve Wiley (Emma Mackey) attends.
"Following the closure of Moordale Secondary, the students are navigating new territory at the high-tech and progressive Cavendish Sixth Form College," Netflix said in Friday's news release.
Levy joins Sex Education after his work in Schitt's Creek, which ended in 2020. He created, produced and starred in that show with his father, Eugene Levy.
The 39-year-old actor tweeted "Sex Ed. Season 4. VERY serious news" alongside a photo of him with Mackey.

There are other cast changes
Levy isn't the only new cast member.
Doctor Who's Thaddea Graham and Kamikaze's Marie Reuther will also be part of the new season, Netflix said. Alexandra James, Anthony Lexa, Felix Mufti and Imani Yahshua are also joining the cast.
Levy's addition follows the exit of multiple stars on the show, including Simone Ashley (Olivia Hanan), who plays Kate Sharma in the Netflix hit series Bridgerton. Tanya Reynolds (Lily Iglehart), Rakhee Thakrar (Emily Sands) and Patricia Allison (Ola Nyman) will also not return, according to Deadline Hollywood.
The British dramedy, which premiered in 2019, is filming Season 4 in Wales, according to People.
