Almost seven years after it last aired, Waterloo Road is set to return to BBC One later this year – and the series will welcome back some familiar faces to the school.
Following the announcement of Waterloo Road's return, the popular drama has confirmed that Angela Griffin, Adam Thomas and Katie Griffiths will all be reprising their roles for the upcoming episodes.
Angela Griffin's Kim Campbell will be back in the staff room as the new Headteacher, while Adam Thomas and Katie Griffiths' Donte and Chlo Charles are also set to star.
As they prepare for filming to kick off next month, the returning cast have shared their excitement at stepping back into the corridors of high school.
"I feel really honoured to be joining the new series of Waterloo Road," Angela Griffin said, promising "amazing storylines" ahead.
"It is exciting to be stepping back into Kim's shoes and I can't wait to explore her life, character and how she has evolved since we last met her.... I'm looking forward to welcoming viewers back to Waterloo Road."
Ready to begin a new chapter for Donte, Adam Thomas shared his excitement at going "back to where it all started".
"Waterloo Road was a huge part of my life and career so to go back 15 years later is a dream come true," the former Emmerdale star said. "I can't wait to see some old faces and some new. I know this series is going to be the best one yet."
Unsurprisingly, Adam's on-screen wife Katie Griffiths is just as excited. "Chlo was my first professional acting role, and I feel so lucky to be part of the show again," she said. "I can't wait to see what stories unfold!"
Waterloo Road will return to BBC One and BBC iPlayer later this year.
