Sex Education could see some rivalry next term, as the BBC has announced the reprisal of its hit drama series Waterloo Road.
The TV show first aired in 2006 and, despite its popularity, was axed in 2015. But fans apparently are still haunted by Sambuca Kelly's death, which was one of the darker moments in the show's history.
It launched the careers of several successful actors and actresses - including Bridgerton's Rege-Jean Page, who's now in the running to play the next James Bond, and Phoebe Dyvenor, as well as Emmerdale's Adam Thomas and Doctor Who's Gemma Coleman.
The revived series will be shot and produced in Greater Manchester and the BBC hopes it will "boost drama production skills in the North of England and help to reshape the BBC's drama slate to better reflect, represent and serve all parts of the country," adding that the series "will provide a training ground for new and diverse writers."
"Waterloo Road is the perfect lens through which to explore post-Covid Britain, from the perspective of those who have arguably been affected most: young people in education," said the BBC's Director of Drama, Piers Wenger. "We are thrilled to be returning to this brilliant format - its thrills and spills, unmissable characters and high drama - at a time when audiences across Britain need it most."
The BBC hasn't yet revealed a release date for the new series. It'll most likely come in early 2022, but we'll let you know as soon as anything is confirmed.
As Waterloo Road is only in it's early stages, it's too early to see a trailer yet. But you can now catch Waterloo Road series 1-10 on BBC iPlayer if you need your fix.
As the original cast of Waterloo Road will be far beyond their school years now, the revival will bring about a whole new set of faces.
The BBC hasn't unveiled the cast yet and said in September 2021 "Further information about the series including casting will be revealed in due course."
