Ncuti Gatwa is set to return to 'Sex Education'.

The 29-year-old actor has recently been confirmed as the new Time Lord in 'Doctor Who', sparking concerns from fans of the Netflix show that he might be out of the fourth series.

But, according to Variety, Ncuti will be back as Eric Effiong for the next instalment of the drama.

A source told the publication that the fourth season will "see a mixture of old and new exciting faces".

Filming for the new series of 'Sex Education' is expected to take place this autumn.

But several stars have already confirmed they will not be returning for the next season, including Rakhee Thakrar, who played teacher Emily Sands.

She recently said: "I'm not part of the new series. I can't really talk about why.

"But I'm so proud of the show and grateful to have been part of something so important. There is nothing bad about 'Sex Education'."

What's more, Tanya Reynolds has also confirmed she won't be back as Lily Iglehart for season four.

She said: "I’m not [returning], actually, which is sad, very sad. It’s just the natural progression of these shows – when you have such big ensemble casts and so many characters, I think you have to let a few older characters go to make way for newer ones, which is absolutely the right thing, the way it should happen."

Patricia Allison is also not going to feature as Lily's love interest, Ola Nyman.

She said: "I won’t be joining the team for season 4. I absolutely have loved my time on 'Sex Education', and I’m so sorry to have to break that to you guys.

"I’ve been doing it for three years and I’ve loved it."

Simone Ashley has also quit the show because her work on 'Bridgerton' has left her too busy to film scenes as the popular Olivia Hanan.

Asked about her future on 'Sex Education', she said in April: "I get asked that all the time. No, I'm a 'Bridgerton' girl now."
