'Skins' to bow out with final series in 2013, former stars to return


Channel 4 has announced that Skins will bow out with one final series.

The E4 teen drama has been recommissioned for a special seventh run - made up of three films broken up into six parts - to be broadcast in 2013, Digital Spy can confirm.

Famous Skins characters from the past five years will appear in the 'celebratory' series.

Nicholas Hoult (Tony), Kaya Scodelario (Effy), Jack O'Connell (Cook) and Luke Pasqualino (Freddie) are among those who could return.

"Channel 4 today confirmed that next year's series of E4's teen drama Skins will be its last," the broadcaster said this evening.

"The new series will be a celebration of this truly iconic series, and will go to air in early 2013."

"Skins is a brilliant show which has defined a generation and will go down as a game-changing piece of television," the statement added.

"But after seven series it is time for E4 to make way for the next generation of the bold, the new and the innovative."

Skins, which launched in 2007, is currently airing its sixth series every Monday at 10pm on E4.


Another one of my favorite shows is nearing its end. I figured the end was near after the U.S. Skins (a show neutered to the point where it was mostly worthless) was cancelled by MTV after only one season and plans for a formal British Skins movie fell through. The producers' chances for turning Skins into some mega-franchise evaporated, and with it, the ambitions behind the show itself.

Looks they're just going to have some fun with the old cast members and make a few made-for-TV movies instead to close it out. Hopefully they tie up some of the loose-ends from the earlier series as some storylines ended with lots of questions unanswered.
