Earlier, the PTC claimed that the MTV series could be "the most dangerous show for children on television".
However, the cast have now defended the programme in an interview with TV Squad.
Rachel Thevenard pointed out that the PTC has only seen a preview and insisted that Skins "is about so much more than that", while Ron Mustafaa said: "It's a show. Your kids might be doing this or they might not. We're not saying that they should do it."
Meanwhile, Daniel Flaherty pointed out that people don't have to watch the show and suggested that it could be a good conversation opener.
"There already are shows like this," he said. "Just because they're not as edgy doesn't mean this is going to be the most dangerous thing ever. It's actually good potentially because it's more real and showing what teenagers actually do... It does show consequences for bad actions as well."
Camille Cresencia-Mills, who plays Daisy, added: "The reason it's dangerous and scary for parents is it's the unknown, and people are scared of things they don't know. If you go into your daughter's room and read her diary you're going to find the exact same thing and it's just as scary, but sorry we're, like, showing it on TV. Hopefully the parents can see it and realise that teenagers, yeah they go and party and stuff, but they're also having issues and they also care about their families, and this might be a way to deal with it for some people."
Skins will premiere on Monday at 10/9c on MTV.
