The too much sex, drugs and dubstep British television show Skins has just released the new trailer for it’s seventh season and holy hell, I can’t wait. In the minute teaser, we see the return of bad boy Cook (from series three and four), the equally devious Effy (series one to four) and everyone’s favourite basket case, Cassie (series one and two) for the last series ever.
I’m just a tad bit biased as I would’ve loved to see more of the original gang but they all seem to be busy with other work these days. Most notably, Nicholas Hoult (the manipulative Tony) who is currently filming the sequel to the X-Men prequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past. He also happen to be the ex-boyfriend of everyone’s imaginary BFF, Jennifer Lawrence. Meanwhile, Dev Patel (a.k.a. Anwar) has been hard at work with his HBO series The Newsroom. Let’s also not forget that he starred in the Oscar-award winning Slumdog Millionaire soon after he called it quits on Skins. I know there’s no hope of seeing Chris again (he bit the dust in series 2 and I will never forgive the writers for that), but with Chris Dempsie now on Game of Thrones, he probably doesn’t have that much time anyways as he gets leeches thrown down his pants. Also joining him on the sex and war drama is Hannah Murray, but lucky for us she’ll be returning to Skins as everyone’s favourite basket case Cassie.
Whew. That’s a lot. After writing all that, I can’t help but be so proud of the series one crowd and feel a little nostalgic. Another Skins binge seems to be in the future.
