It's been revealed that the current sixth series of E4's Skins will be the show's last, although the producers are planning three two-hour specials to air in 2013. It's strongly believed that these "farewell episodes" will feature some of the show's previous cast members; including Nicholas Hoult, Dev Patel and Kaya Scodelario.
In other news, ITV have revealed that they currently have no plans to renew Primeval for a sixth series. They previously cancelled the monster-hunting sci-fi drama after series 3, brought it back under a co-financing deal with UKTV, BBC America and ProSieben, and then filmed two series back-to-back. ITV haven't actually shown series 5 themselves yet, which had its UK premiere on Watch last summer. Perhaps the terrestrial ratings for series 5 will determine its fate, although it can't help that most Primeval fans won't be watching because they've had a whole year to catch the episodes elsewhere.
Are you sad to see Skins go? Should Primeval join the debauched teenagers in TV heaven, or does it deserve another series? Will the Skins specials be something you'd watch, even if you gave up on the actual series?
