Skins To End In 2013
In news that I don't think will actually shock anyone but it seems that Skins days are finally numbered. The show currently into it's sixth season will return for a seventh year in 2013, comprised of three two hour movies split into six episodes and that will be the show's very last. It's going to be interesting to see how many actors from the first two generations will be secured for these specials, considering that most of them have moved on in their careers.
The specials are heavily rumoured to feature at least all of three generations, hopefully tying up any needed loose ends from each era. Much as I love the series, I have to admit this isn't devastating news. I think the format has been taken as far as it could and after seven years, I think it will be time to say a final goodbye to Tony, Michelle, Sid, Cassie, Jal, Chris, Anwar, Maxxie, Effy, Pandora, Cook, Freddie, Emily, Naomi, JJ, Thomas, Franky, Mini, Liv, Grace, Alex, Nick, Matty, Rich and Alo. Well, considering that three of them are dead, I guess just goodbye to the others then but either way, it's the end of an era.
