SKINS KEEPS PEOPLE TALKING WITH SEASON ONE FINALE, SEASON TWO U.S. PREMIERE

The teenagers of BBC AMERICA's hit dramedy, Skins, are at a critical crossroads in the Season One finale. As Anwar readies to celebrate his birthday, Tony, Michelle, Sid and Cassie battle their own turmoil that threatens to tear them apart. Tony and Michelle are still not talking but Tony is about to have bigger problems to contend with. Sid finally tells Cassie how he feels but as Cassie prepares to leave for Scotland, it might be too late. The season culminates in an uplifting and unforgettable musical number to Cat Steven's �Wild World.�

Skins has won praise from fans and critics alike since its premiere on this side of the pond in mid August on BBC AMERICA. The winner of the Golden Rose d'Or for Drama and a BAFTA nominee, Skins stars Nicholas Hoult (About a Boy, The Weather Man), and employs a team of writers averaging the age of 22. A coming of age story for 2008, it's a potent mix of humorous, heartbreaking and shocking stories that tackle the trials of adolescence while pushing boundaries in ways only teenagers can.

Skins Season One finale airs Sunday, October 5, 10:00 p.m. ET/PT and Season Two premieres Sunday, October 12, 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Tony wants to go back to college, but his parents won't agree to that either. Their world has been rocked to its foundations and they just don't know what to do with their son.

A weird loner, she spends most days shut up in an apartment looking after her disabled Mom. So her attentions turn to the fit blonde boy who lives on the estate. Soon everything in her life is about Maxxie - if only he would even notice her, if only she wasn't hopelessly in love with him, if only he wasn't gay. Meanwhile, the sixth form college production of �Osama: The Musical� is teetering towards disaster under the heavy-handed guidance of a lecherous drama teacher. But Sketch is prepared to do anything to get her leading man Maxxie, and if she can't have him, she's going to make sure nobody can � and especially not his current leading lady Michelle.

So his mood is not improved much when his grandfather arrives, dying of cancer, to say his final goodbyes. He has never liked his son and he likes his grandson Sid even less so his arrival makes Sid's dad's life a misery too. Times all this by ten when Sid's estranged Mom joins in to play happy families.

So when Scarlett inveigles herself onto Michelle's birthday camping trip and starts to move in on the emotionally fragile Sid, Michelle's got to do something. Sid needs Michelle, he's her friend, and he's always had a thing for her anyway. She does the only thing she knows, but how are they going to tell Tony? And who's that arriving back from Scotland and full of hope for Sid? Now that is bad timing.

So Chris gets a job, several of them in fact; he just can't stop being fired.

Will a visit from her mom make everything better? It'll make her realize that the person she needs to talk to is the father of her child, Chris. What Jal doesn't know is Chris has his own secret.
