Tearaway teens drama Skins is making a comeback – on MySpace.

Channel 4 have filmed a 10-minute special for the social networking site, which will go live in August.

Skins, which went out on E4 earlier this year and generally impressed the critics, has been quick to exploit the power of the web. The show’s MySpace profile has signed up more than 55,000 community members and allows viewers to download Skins-related songs and trailers.

To tie in with the special – which goes live on August 17 – Channel 4 is also inviting viewers to party with the cast members after filming wraps. The shoot and party will take place at “a secret location in Bristol” on August 2. For more information on how to win tickets to the event, click on this link.

Says E4 boss, Angela Jain: “The special will give audiences another unique Skins experience and a taste of what to expect from the hotly anticipated second series.”

Series two of Skins is now in production and due to air on E4 in the new year, while series one will be repeated on C4 from August 21. The cast are also appearing at T4 on the Beach on Sunday 22 July.
