Season Info

Season one follows the angst-ridden lives of its teenage characters, as they grapple with issues of race, religion, sexuality, drugs, and eating disorders. "Skins'" portrayal of these characters as poster children of the hedonistic lifestyle is unflinching in its candor. Expect plenty of backstabbing, and general bad behavior in the show's debut season.
