Skins: UK Series Cancelled; No Series Eight

Skins canceledThe US version of Skins was cancelled after one 10 episode season on MTV and now the UK original has been axed as well, after seven seasons.

According to The Guardian, Channel 4 has confirmed that the final season will air early next year in the UK. They promise “a celebration of this truly iconic series”.

Created by father-and-son writers Bryan Elsley and Jamie Brittain, Skins follows the lives of teenagers in Bristol, South West England. It premiered in January 2007 on E4 and attracted 1.4 million viewers. At the time, that was the channel’s second biggest audience (behind Big Brother) for a UK-originated show.

A Channel 4 spokeswoman said, “Skins is a brilliant show which has defined a generation and will go down as a truly iconic, game-changing piece of television but after seven series it is time for E4 to make way for the next generation of the bold, the new and the innovative.”

Here in the states, BBC America aired the first three seasons of Skins, from August 2008 until October 2009.

What do you think? Are you a fan of the original Skins? Do you think it’s time to end the series?

I would really like to see the series go on, and give us some more in site in where the other characters are. It has always bugged me that during all the things the Eff was going though that Tony never came to see how she was, and what ever happen to Sid, or JJ, two of my favorite characters. I would really like to see what has happen, maybe a miniseries and/or a movie. I really enjoyed this British show, and because of Skins have tuned to more British shows.
