Channel 4 has announced that the final part of Shane Meadows’ This is England saga will air in 2015.
This is England ’90 will once again follow the exploits of Lol, Woody, Shaun, Milky, Smell, Gadget, Harvey, Kell, Trev and Combo as they experience everything the first year of a new decade had to offer.
From fun loving fatties with bowl hairdo’s and baggy jeans, snorting whizz at the town hall discos in ‘spring’, to becoming part of the loved up masses as they batter E’s with thousands of new brothers and sisters in fields, forests & factories of England during the ‘summer’ of love.
The four part drama is set two years after the less-than-festive Christmas of ‘88, with some of the gang embracing the new decade with more gusto than others. But a lot can happen in a year, and in true This is England style, the second summer of love soon gives way to a winter of discontent.
Shane Meadows says: “We will see an enormous transformation in the lives of our cast over these final four stories as Shaun writes his final chapter with the gang he loves.”
Piers Wenger, Channel 4 Head of Drama, says: “We might feel like we’ve grown up with Lol, Woody, Shaun and the gang but what Shane has planned for them in these final four parts will ensure that they are in our hearts forever.”
This is England ’90 is expected in 2015 on Channel 4
