'Waterloo Road' is to return for a new series.
The BBC has confirmed the school drama show will be back for a new term, consisting of seven episodes, with the likes of Angela Griffin (Kim Campbell), Adam Thomas (Donte Charles), and Kym Marsh (Nicky Walters) all returning to the show.
Jamie Glover will reprise his role as former deputy head Andrew Treneman - an ex of Angela's character Kim - who was last seen in the series in 2009.
Angela said: "It’s great to be back on BBC One and to be able to offer iPlayer fans some great new episodes.
"We have such a wonderful and talented cast, all of whom bring so much to 'Waterloo Road'. This series holds a fair few surprises for Kim and everyone around her and I can’t wait for people to catch up with all the action inside and outside the school."
Jamie added: "I am so excited to be returning to 'Waterloo Road'.
"The school has been such an important part of my life and it’s wonderful to be able to rekindle the old flame.
"Not to mention the joy of getting to work with the incomparable Angela Griffin once more.
"I hope that people will enjoy seeing Andrew and Kim together in the school again. Older? Certainly, there’s the grey hair to prove it! Wiser? Who knows?"
