The Fades producer Caroline Skinner has claimed that the show will terrify viewers.

The supernatural drama, written by Skins scribe Jack Thorne, will focus on Paul (Iain De Caestecker), a young man who can see spirits of the dead known as 'the Fades'.

Skinner told SFX: "The thing I found so exciting about working with Jack on developing the mythology of the show is that they're Fades, and you've not seen Fades before. They're not ghosts, they're not werewolves [and] they're not vampires."

She continued: "I think a lot of fantasy shows draw on people's received ideas of monsters and how those things work, [but] actually this is completely new."

Skinner also said that The Fades will be "one of the scariest things that people have seen on TV in a long time".

"I think one of the really exciting things is that over the course of the series, [the] mythology will develop and turn in every episode," she added. "Just when you thought that you know what a Fade is, you'll find out something else."

Daniel Kaluuya, Lily Loveless, Tom Ellis, Johnny Harris, Daniela Nardini, Claire Rushbrook and Natalie Dormer will all appear in The Fades.

The series will begin on BBC Three this autumn.
