Skins will return for Series 7

Skins will return for one final seventh series it has been announced by Channel 4.

The final series is to be broadcast in early 2013, with Channel 4 promising "a celebration of this truly iconic series".

Skins, created by father-and-son writers Bryan Elsley and Jamie Brittain and made by independent producer Company, was groundbreaking in its use of a team of young writers and a cast of actors often getting their first major TV break. The cast was also regularly changed from series to series.

The 6th series is currently showing on E4 on Monday nights.

Rumours are that a number of former cast members are being lined up to star in what is likely to be either five episodes or a trio of two-hour specials.

"Skins is a brilliant show which has defined a generation and will go down as a truly iconic, game-changing piece of television but after seven series it is time for E4 to make way for the next generation of the bold, the new and the innovative," a Channel 4 spokeswoman said.
