Skins returns for a sixth series

Shooting begins in Bristol on July 21st on series 6 of the popular E4 teen drama Skins. The series will see the return of the cast from Series 5 - Dakota Blue Richards, Freya Mavor, Jess Sula, Laya Lewis, Sean Teale, Sebastian De Souza, Will Merrick and Alex Arnold  along with some new characters including a "street-smart, charming and handsome" new male character.

Here's the series synopsis:

The gang returns in style, burning their way through a new term at Roundview as new friendships, secret relationships and sexual awakening complicate their already messy lives. Caught between past and present, the bonds between them are tested as they learn what it really means to be a friend, a lover, an adult.

The new series from Company Pictures will be produced by Toby Welch and Neil Duncan who both have a longstanding relationship with Skins. Welch worked as a runner and as an assistant to Bryan Elsley on series 2, before producing all cross platform content for Skins series 3 and 4 and by series 5 had progressed to the role of Assistant Producer. Duncan script edited Skins series 3 and 4 before taking on the Script executive role for series 5. Co-creator Bryan Elsley returns to executive produce.

The 10 episode series will begin shooting this month to transmit on E4 in January 2012.
