‘Skins’ new series and open auditions announced

E4 announces two new series of the show

Open auditions are to be held for parts in Skins after E4 bosses commissioned it for another two series.

The show, which has featured cameos from bands including Foals and Crystal Castles, will once again replace its current cast for the run of new programmes. Bosses are to hold auditions for series five and six of the show in London and Bristol this April, with filming set to take place in the summer.

See E4.com for full details of how to audition.

Channel 4 head of drama Camilla Campbell said that the tradition of replacing cast members makes Skins a “truly distinctive” show, reports BBC News.

Skins has always been about new talent, both on and off screen, and the decision to recast the series every two years is one of the reasons Skins stands out,” she said.

She added: “Now another group of teenagers will have the rare opportunity to be part of a British drama series that says something about their lives and is one of the most exciting shows on television. I can’t wait to find out who they will be.”

The current series of Skins finishes next week (March 18).
