This is when Ackley Bridge series 4 will hit our screens
School is back in session as the fourth series of hit Channel 4 drama Ackley Bridge hits our screens.
The school drama was due to hit our screens in September 2020 but after filming was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic it was pushed back.
The fourth series of the show, filmed at locations across Calderdale, will begin on Channel 4 on Monday, April 19 and the 30 minute episodes will air at 6pm every day for two weeks.
Also in a first for the show, the whole series will be available to watch online on All 4 following the first episode on Monday, April 19.
The award-winning Channel 4 drama has filmed at locations across Calderdale, including once again at the former St Catherine's Catholic High School at Holmfield, Halifax.
Many familiar faces will return including Sunetra Sarker, Rob James Collier, Jo Joyner, Charlie Hardwick and Tony Jayawardeena.
They will be joined by some brand-new faces including Robyn Cara, Yasmin Al Khudhairi, Ryan Dean, Carla Woodcock, Shobhit Piasa and Conor McIntyre.
Inspired by real-life Lancashire and Yorkshire schools established to integrate the white and Asian communities in some of the most divided towns in the country, Ackley Bridge has won praise across its previous three series for tackling real-life situations and issues in an irreverent, insightful way, with humour and punchy, big hearted stories.
