It quoted Channel 4's head of drama Camilla Campbell as saying: 'This Is England will be returning to C4. It is a continuation of the same characters four years on, looking at rave culture and the World Cup. Shane is brimming with ideas and we are really excited.'

The new series will follow main characters Shaun, Woody, Lol and Milky four years after the previous show, which caught up with them three years after they were seen in the acclaimed film This Is England.


Discussing the possibility of making This Is England '90 in an interview with The Independent earlier this year, Meadows said that the 1990s were a 'big turning point'.

'The next really big turning point in my life was 1990, with the Hacienda, the rave, The Stone Roses, ecstasy, the whole shambolic thing,' he said.

'I'd seen a lot of friends get into heroin off the back of that, so in a kind of way, Shaun's journey, if there is to be a second series, will continue in 1990.'

The four-part series This Is England '86 proved popular with TV audiences, attracting 2.5 million viewers on its debut.
