Channel 4 has announced that the teen drama Skins is to end next year.
The series has, however, been recommissioned for a final seventh season, which will see characters from the past five years return.
The broadcaster confirmed the news in a statement released on 7 March, which said:
"Channel 4 today confirmed that next year's series of E4's teen drama Skins will be its last.
"The new series will be a celebration of this truly iconic series, and will go to air in early 2013.
"Skins is a brilliant show which has defined a generation and will go down as a game-changing piece of television.
"But after seven series it is time for E4 to make way for the next generation of the bold, the new and the innovative."
Digital Spy is reporting that the final run will be made up for three films broken up into six parts to be shown in 2013.
Among those to returning for the finale could be characters from the previous six series', including Nicholas Hoult who played Tony in season one, Kaya Scodelario as his sister Effy and Jack O'Connell who starred as Cook.
Skins started back in 2007 and followed a group of teenage students through college.
The current series is airing on E4 every Monday at 10pm.
