A popular Channel 4 drama filmed in Glasgow, and featuring Derry Girls actress Jamie-Lee O’Donnell, will be returning to Kelvin Hall to film a second series of the show.
After the first season of prison drama Screw went down well with both critics and viewers alike, STV Studios and Channel 4 have commissioned the show for a second season.
The show stars Derry Girls icon Jamie-Lee O’Donnell as Rose, as well as main lead Nina Sosanya (His Dark Materials, Little Birds) who plays Leigh Henry, running the C Wing at Long Marsh prison.

Faraz Ayub (Line of Duty, Suspicion), Stephen Wight (I May Destroy You, Manhunt), Ron Donachie (Titanic, Game of Thrones), and Laura Checkley (King Gary, Detectorists) will also be returning.
The plot-line for season two reads: “As the whole team struggles to make a difference to the complicated lives in their care, rumours of an undercover policeman on the wing not only threatens order at Long Marsh, but could blow open a criminal plot involving at least one of our officers.
“And one way or another, the truth will come out…”
The show will once again be filmed in Glasgow’s Kelvin Hall, and the cast will be heading for the city to begin filming soon.
Caroline Hollick, Head of Channel 4 Drama says: “We’re thrilled to welcome back the staff and prisoners of C Wing.

“Rob has created an iconic Channel 4 prison series with a fantastic cast and we can’t wait to jump back into the drama, humanity and humour of life behind bars in series two.”
Sarah Brown, Creative Director of Drama at STV Studios, added: “It’s been thrilling to see audiences take Rob’s fantastic characters to their hearts so readily and in such big numbers.
“We couldn’t be happier to be partnering once again with the brilliant team at Channel 4, to welcome viewers back to the mad world that is C Wing, and delivering even more gripping and thought-provoking stories for officers and prisoners alike. “
