For months and months, the folks who run Skins social media have been teasing a seventh series for the British teen drama. This morning they finally dropped the names of the cast members who will be returning for the farewell hurrah, and they include — keep your vagina on — Lily Loveless and Kat Prescott! That’s right, muff-monkeys, Naomily will return!
And according to the press release by E4 today:
Skins 7 will see the return of former Skins stars Hannah Murray as Cassie, Jack O’Connell as Cook and Kaya Scodelario as Effy in three individual stories. The three stories will have their very own titles: SKINS PURE (that’s Cassie story), SKINS RISE (Cook’s) and SKINS FIRE (that one is Effy). More news? Go one then… Lily Loveless (Naomi) and Kat Prescott (Emily) will also appear in guest roles. Blimey, that’s a lot of news!
And here’s Effy’s episode description:
Effy (Kaya Scodelario) has a dead end job as a receptionist for a leading London Hedge Fund. But as she stumbles across crucial financial information relating to a troubled deal and embarks on an affair with her wealthy boss, she finds out that she has bitten off more than she can chew. Her flatmate Naomi (Lily Loveless) tries to stop Effy from ruining her life, but Effy cannot be reached; until tragedy strikes.
I’m so excited and so scared I can hardly breathe. Excited because Naomi and Emily are, in my ever so slightly biased opinion based on the two years I spent recapping them, the greatest lesbian TV characters/couple to ever grace the telly. And so scared because Skins loves to kill people and break hearts and if Naomily don’t have a(nother) Happily Ever After, I might cry a thousand billion zillion tears. Whatever, though. They can fry me, poach me, scramble me, do me any way they like. I just want to be brave and want them back.
Kat Prescott is excited too!
