Channel 4 has announced the recommission of its hit prison drama, Screws. Series two promises to be bigger, bolder, and more dangerous than ever.
Our team of struggling jail officers, led by Leigh Henry (Nina Sosanya – His Dark Materials, Little Birds), is determined to make a fresh start after the devastating events of the series one finale. Moving on isn't always easy, as those behind the cell doors of C Wing know all too well. Leigh's new friendship with Rose (Jamie-Lee O'Donnell– Derry Girls) - and the secrets they share - will be strained to the limit with changes at the top and new faces both on the wing and in the staff room.
Rumours of an undercover cop on the wing threaten order at Long Marsh, and could rip open a criminal scheme involving at least one of our officers, as the entire team works to make a difference in the tangled lives of those in their care. And the truth will come out one way or another...
Faraz Ayub (Line of Duty, Suspicion), Stephen Wight (I May Destroy You, Manhunt), Ron Donachie (Titanic, Game of Thrones), and Laura Checkley (King Gary, Detectorists) will also be returning.
Screw series two will be filmed in the Kelvin Hall in Glasgow.
