In what amounts to an SBS equivalent of fasttracking, the second season of that fabulous British drama Skins is returning next month.
It airs from 10pm Monday May 19.
Brimming with passionate, reckless, heartfelt and outspoken kids, the drama by British writers Bryan Elsley and Jamie Brittain has only concluded in the UK last week. The speed which with SBS is returning this series is a significant move by the broadcaster, which isn’t usually prone to such quick turn arounds.
As previously reported, Skins third series will dramatically alter, with an entire new cast. It will be goodbye to Sid, Maxxie, Chris, Tony, Cassie, Anwar, Michelle and Jal. Last week in the UK around 3000 hopefuls turned up to audition for the series.
The return of Skins (bound to be far more compelling viewing than the party house of Big Brother) marks a big week for SBS. The Eurovision Song Contest also airs in the same week.
SBS has launched a Sneak Peek of Skins you can see here. Its new logo and website in early May.
