Skins Rise will mark the return of bad boy Cook (Jack O'Connell) - now working as a drug peddler in Manchester, the tearaway is forced to confront his violent past.

Sherlock's Lara Pulver and Facejacker star Kayvan Novak will guest star in Skins Fire, which focuses on the character of Effy (Kaya Scodelario) and will also feature Skins favourites Naomi (Lily Loveless) and Emily (Kathryn Prescott).

Final instalment Skins Pure will see Hannah Murray reprise the role of Cassie, who will be seen "adrift, alone and invisible in London" before forming a poignant friendship with a mysterious stranger.

Skins began in 2007 on E4 and ran for six series, with the final regular run airing in early 2012. A short-lived US remake also aired on MTV for one season in 2011.
