Skins is a show that defined a generation and changed the way teen dramas were made, leaving a legacy on pop culture that will last far beyond the upcoming final season. Check out the brand new trailer.
Some of the original characters from the landmark series Skins are returning for one final season titled Skins Redux, made up of three individual stories of two one-hour episodes, each one focussing on a different character from previous Skins seasons. Each two part story centres on the characters now in their early twenties, the party’s over and they’re starting out as young adults, struggling to find a direction and a focus in unforgiving times.
