Bad Education premieres November 7th

Bad Education, Seasons 1-4, Movie, & Reunion Special (2012 to present)

On November 7th, BritBox will be adding not just the original three seasons of this school-based comedy, but the new re-boot, the movie, and the reunion special. In the first three seasons, the series follows Alfie Wicker (Jack Whitehall), a teacher who is in many ways less mature than the kids he's instructing. He teachers a class full of struggling students, and while he's not the best teacher around, he cares about their success.

A film version saw the case reuniting as Alfie took his students on a final school trip after they finished their GCSEs. Ten years later, a reunion special was created, seeing Whitehall's original Class K returning for a career day and reunion that doesn't quite go as planned.

More recently, the show was renewed for a brand new season that saw former pupils Stephen Carmichael (Layton Williams, The Bad Education Movie) and Mitchell Harper (Charlie Wernham, The Bad Education Movie) returning to Abbey Grove to teach class K.
