This season revolves around Sana and her religion. Sana's beliefs are tested when she starts to like her brother's friend, Yousef, which turns out into a forbidden love because he is not Muslim, like her. Sana also deals with the russ bus, and the involvement in Pepsi Max who want to join with them. Sana also tries to help Noora get over William, but doesn't speak up when Noora shows interest in Yousef.
Sana is seen juggling all these parts of her life until they all clash together on one day. She faces the aftermath of an altercation between her brother and his friends versus Jonas, Mahdi, Magnus, Even and Isak, who gets hurt during it. Pressured by her desire to fit into Norwegian culture more, Sana gathers evidence of Sara's malicious habits and creates an Instagram hate-account, the repercussions of which also affect her friends. Things get cleared up as Sana confesses, and Noora is revealed to have tried to get Yousef and Sana together. Sana admits to her mom that she likes Yousef and goes on a date with him.
The final episode of the season shows other character's struggles such as Vilde's emotional and financial home situation, Chris' desire to prove himself a worthy boyfriend for Eva, Jonas new relationship with Emma and his old relationship with Eva, Chris struggles to be there for her friends as someone to talk to, Even's self-worth and his perception on his relationship with Isak in which they face homophobic comments, William's struggle under the pressure of his dad to return to London, and Eskild and Linn's prospects upon a future without Noora living at the kollektiv. The season (and series) closes with an Eid-celebration at Sana's house, where they all celebrate their friendships and the love they have spread in the face of hatred.

Production and Development
- Sana was chosen as the main for this season in the fall of 2016.
- Production started in the first half of March 2017
- In 4x04, when Sana is on her computer checking the message from Yousef, the calendar says March 30th, instead of May 2nd. The next day, when talking to Noora at school, the date says March 31st instead of May 3rd.
- In 4x05, when the boys are fighting there are some inconsistencies with Jonas. In one shot he is on the left, wearing a hat. In the other shot he is on the other side, with no hat on.
- Note: The fight scene aired less than 2 weeks after being filmed so the editing for the fight scene was on a tight schedule.

- Someone edited the caption of a photo, posted by Ulrikke Falch on Instagram, saying that she was the main character of season 4.
