TV show description:
This coming-of-age fantasy drama highlights the supernatural skills of a reluctant teenager, Paul (Iain De Caestecker). His best friend, Mac (Daniel Kaluuya), and his therapist, are completely stunned by the apocalyptic dreams that he’s been having. Paul’s twin sister Anna (Lily Loveless) is unsympathetic of his socially awkward behavior.
As if things aren’t difficult enough, Paul is seeing the spirits of the dead (known as Fades) all around him. An embittered Fade finds a way to break the barrier between the dead and the living, aiming its vengeance at Paul, Mac, and their loved ones.
Soon, the fate of humanity rests in the hands of the two best friends — who already have enough trouble getting through the day in one piece, let alone saving the world.
The reborn Sarah tries to kill Mark. She later realises that she would like to be released so that she can pass over.
John and his evil Fades roam the deserted streets of the evacuated town as they look for flesh to revitalize themselves. Obsessive Neil, having already abducted Mac as a means to get Paul to help him, shoots Jay.
After John has let slip that the Ascension Point is in the shopping mall (and not in the woods as Paul had assumed), the two boys fight to save their worlds.
First aired: February 18, 2012.

Really BBC!! Fades is worth renewing!!! Unreal!!
What the heck were they thinking?! Can’t believe I found something so interesting only to find out they canceled it. Crazy the things that people do.
Thats the bbc they dont know a good show like the fades,bring it back it was good,dont get me started on the bbc news its not news its like watching a dvd over and over.
I was so upset when this ended but maybe it cost too much for them. They’ve had a lot of sci-fi that they haven’t renewed. I guess Doctor Who costs them more and there isn’t a lot of money for any other sci-fi.
I agree with most of the people that have watched The Fades and think it should have been RENEWED. I don’t understand why it wasn’t renewed because it had sustenance to be a 4 or 5 seasoned TV Series. If anyone at the BBC had any brains they would have never let this series be cancel in the first place!! So if they did come to their sense (to late I am guessing) they probably have already tried to get all those good actors back but can’t and that’s why there’s not a second season yet. The Fades should have… Read more »
