Tv Season Info

"Skins" enters its fifth season following the angst-ridden lives of its teenage characters, as they grapple with adolescence. This season introduces the third generation of students; a once again, eclectic mix of characters. There's Franky, who automatically sets herself up as an outsider when she joins the school three weeks late. As Mini, Liv and Grace do their best to both help and hinder her settling in period, we also meet the new boys Alo, Rich, Nick, and Matty. Expect plenty more backstabbing and general angst-ridden behavior in this fifth season.
