Waterloo Road announces new series air date – and it's soon!

Waterloo Road fans will be delighted to know that the show is back on screens very soon.

The programme will return to BBC One and iPlayer for seven new episodes on Tuesday, May 16 at 8pm.

Waterloo Road will certainly be bringing lots of fireworks on its return, with Kim Campbell's former flame Andrew Treneman coming back.

Jamie Glover, who plays the former deputy head and English teacher, previously said: "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?"

There's also a new student at the school – Myles Massey, played by Osian Morgan.

Myles is struggling with coming to terms with life back in mainstream education after being let go by a football academy, so sets about making a last impression on the school.

Also joining the show are Benidorm's Paul Bazely and Coronation Street's Jenny Platt as parents of pupils, as well as Corrie's Olwen May and James Quinn.

Returning cast members include Adam Thomas (Donte Charles), Kym Marsh (Nicky Walters), Vincent Jerome (Lindon King), James Baxter (Joe Casey), Jo Coffey (Wendy Whitwell), Shauna Shim (Valerie Chambers), Neil Fitzmaurice (Neil Guthrie), Rachel Leskovac (Coral Walker), Katherine Pearce (Amy Spratt), Ryan Clayton (Mike Rutherford) and Sonia Ibrahim (Jamilah Omar).

Waterloo Road has also promised to focus on another term of romances and friendships for both the students and the staff, as well as issues including mental health, racism, the cost-of-living crisis and being LGBTQ+.

Waterloo Road returns on May 16 at 8pm on BBC One, and streams on BBC iPlayer.
