The Skins gang is back at College after the summer break. Their hedonism knows no bounds as they live life to the ethos of no consequences, no tomorrow and you can all live forever. Their care-free bubble abruptly bursts when a near-stranger needlessly dies, sending a shockwave through the entire group. The tragedy leaves Thomas (Merveille Lukeba) questioning everything - his faith, his family and even his choice of friends. The reverberations will reach far beyond Thomas's story, affecting the lives of all those we know around him. Effy (Kaya Scodelario) returns - no longer with her queen-bee status, and still struggling to deal with her family issues. Her best friend, Pandora (Lisa Backwell), is back adorable and kooky as ever. Twins Katie (Megan Prescott) and Emily (Kathryn Prescott) are visibly different - after leaving her sisterGÇÖs shadow Emily is head over heels in love, but while sheGÇÖs finding out what life is really like, Katie is left behind in a family meltdown. MORE NOTES: Naomi (Lily Loveless) seems to have more to hide this series; while JJ (Ollie Barbieri) finally realises what love is. Meanwhile Cook (Jack OGÇÖConnell) is trying to simultaneously exorcise his demons and not reveal his weaknesses, and Freddie (Luke Pasqualino) finds out that love can lead you to the edge of sanity. Series four will continue with guest appearances from Morwenna Banks as Anthea Stonem and Ronni Anconna as Jenna Fitch, alongside new guest artists including Chris Addison, Tanya Franks, Paul Kaye, Pauline Quirke, Simon Day, Dudley Sutton, Hugo Speer, Jenny Eclair, and Will Young. The eight new episodes are written by a young British writing team, and are headed up by Executive Producer Bryan Elsley, Producer John Griffin and series directors Neil Biswas, Daniel OGÇÖHara, Phillippa Langdale, and Esther May Campbell.
