Original cast to be replaced next season

It is revealed by Daniel Kaluuya, writer of the show, that the original cast will be replaced by an all new lineup for next year's third series. The show's co-creator Bryan Elsley said that as series 2 ends with the cast going off to university, it won't be possible to keep on following them and that in future, the show will operate in two year arcs with new casts. Elsley said, "It’s exciting – we never stand still. We can tell stories in a new way.” There will be open auditions held around the UK. As of now, one open audition has been held in Bristol, where the show is set, which attracted 1,500 16- to 18-year-olds. A second is planned for London in April. In addition, the team's producers have said that while series three will focus on a new lineup, some old faces may make occasional appearances.

It makes sense though, it's to stop it becoming like those american teen programmes, aka Dawson's Creek, and the crew just become too old and too unrealistic.

Yeah, I think its a great idea to be honest, the best series was by far the first one because they were introducing the characters, if they hire a new cast and have the next series about them its keeping it from getting stale. Great idea. Plus, I'm getting sick of the characters.

it isn't necessarily a bad idea, but i think the show shouldn't lose its essence. maybe they should introduce new characters who are effie's friends, it would make sense since she is younger than tony. they could show her college life and her friends in the next season.
