Series seven will mark a departure in style with former stars Hannah Murray (Game of Thrones), Jack O’Connell (300: Rise of an Empire) and Kaya Scodelario (Wuthering Heights) returning to the roles which shaped their careers in three individual stories, each one broadcast in two, one hour parts.
The three stories will have distinct titles: ‘Skins Pure’ (Cassie), ‘Skins Rise’ (Cook) and ‘Skins Fire’ (Effy). Lily Loveless (Naomi) and Kat Prescott (Emily) will also appear in guest roles.
