Skins – The chaotic lives and lusts of teenagers is back
E4â€™s landmark drama series Skins is back with ten brand new episodes that follow the chaotic lives and lusts of a group of spliff-toting British teenagers.
Itâ€™s been six months since Tonyâ€™s (Nicholas Hoult) collision with a bus â€“ remarkably he isnâ€™t dead, but he sure isnâ€™t the same person. As if waking up with a body that doesnâ€™t work properly isnâ€™t tough enough, getting back on top of things is even harder when your friends are all acting totally weird.
Sid (Mike Bailey) canâ€™t get his head around the fact that his best mate is a shadow of the man heâ€™s always looked up to. And to top it he finally got the girl, Cassie, only to have her whisked off to Scotland by her crazy parents. Sodâ€™s law. But to Cassie (Hannah Murray) itâ€™s totally okay because theyâ€™ll email all the time and then one day sheâ€™ll come back and theyâ€™ll live happily ever afterâ€¦ yeah right.
Michelle (April Pearson) is lost without Tony too, and her Mum has gone and married yet another man â€“ but this time thereâ€™s a step-sister involved whoâ€™s intent on trying to make a move on her mates. Maxxieâ€™s (Mitch Hewer) got hell at home too because his Dad (Bill Bailey) doesnâ€™t want him to follow his dream of being a dancer. Even Anwar (Dev Patel) has changed since he bagged himself a secret girlfriend called Sketch (Aimee-Ffion Edwards).
Her mates are mixed up, but Jal (Larissa Wilson) is throwing off the good girl image and letting her hair down. And Chris (Joe Dempsie) â€“ well getting expelled wasnâ€™t his finest hour â€“ but now the party animal is stepping out on his own so at least his future is bright… what could go wrong? And while all around is falling apart, itâ€™s Effy (Kaya Scodelario) whoâ€™s taking control.
Series two features a host of new guest appearances. including Shane Richie, Bill Bailey and Josie Long. who will join returning guest stars Harry Enfield, Arabella Weir, Geoffrey Hughes, Josie Lawrence and Peter Capaldi.
