Screw | Series 2 Preview (Channel 4)

The team of embattled prison officers played by Nina Sosanya, Jamie-Lee O’Donnell, Faraz Ayub, Stephen Wight, Ron Donachie, and Laura Checkley will all be returning.



Ben Tavassoli will also reprise his role as Louis Costa. This series the cast will be joined by Lee Ingleby (The A Word, The Serpent Queen) as Morgan, a new prisoner with a hidden agenda.



After the tragic events of the series one finale, our team of embattled prison officers, led by Leigh Henry, are determined to make a fresh start. But as those behind the cell doors of C Wing know only too well, moving on isn’t always simple. With changes at the very top and fresh faces both on the wing and in the staff room, Leigh’s new bond with Rose - and the secrets they share - will be tested to the limit.

As the whole team struggles to make a difference to the complicated lives in their care, rumours of an undercover policeman on the wing not only threatens order at Long Marsh, but could blow open a criminal plot involving at least one of our officers. And one way or another, the truth will come out…




Other new faces on the wing include Barnaby Kay (Wallander, The Five) playing the new Governor; Leo Gregory (Green Street, Out of Control) playing prisoner Reeks and David Judge (Romeo and Juliet, Prey) playing prisoner Hemmings.



Gemma Boswell, Channel 4 Commissioning Editor says: “We’re excited to be back in Glasgow to start filming Series 2 of Screw and to welcome Lee Ingleby who is a fantastic addition to our brilliant cast. Series 2 promises even more drama, intrigue and humour on C Wing and we can’t wait to get started.”



Screw is an STV Studios production for Channel 4 and begins Wednesday 30th August.
