British TV is preparing the way for the return of their amazing series Skins which will debut its 4th season next month. As you may recall, an entirely new cast of players was announced around this time last year for the show’s 3rd season … a move that was not initially well-received. The original cast of Skins (which included Dev Patel who went on to star in Slumdog Millionaire and Nicholas Holt who went on to star in A Single Man) was so beloved that any notion of a new cast was frowned upon. IMHO, the new cast only added to the show’s richness and provided just as much entertainment. The “new” Skins players were featured in an issue of Nylon magazine earlier this year and the show itself got enough attention that MTV is planning a US version for airing here in America (an idea I vehemently oppose). In any regard, a new season of Skins is nearly upon us … here is the first group promo pic from the new season:
I cannot believe it’s been almost an entire year since the last season aired in the UK. I was fortunate enough to be able to watch the series online on You Tube as it aired overseas but now, because of You Tube’s new policy of restricting international video, I don’t think I’ll be able to watch along so easily this time around. I understand that this upcoming 4th season of Skins will be the last to feature this cast of young players (the original cast were only featured in 2 seasons as well) and that an entirely new cast will be featured in season 5. I love this show so much. BBC America airs Skins in its full, uncensored version here in the US but they do so months after it debuts in the UK. After the jump, check out individual promo photos of the Skins cast in all their neon-colored glory …
No lie, Skins is one of my fave shows right now. I’m actually rewatching the first 3 seasons to gear up for season 4. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to gain access to the new eps as soon as they air in the UK cuz I really don’t want to wait months for the eps to air on BBC America. If you are a fan of Skins, I’m sure you’re just as excited as I am for the upcoming 4th season … if you’re not familiar with the show, I strongly urge you seek and check it out. It’s an amazingly well written, well acted and very entertaining series. Any Skins fans out there? What do you think of these new promo photos?
