Here's everything we know about the series so far.
Screw is a six-part drama about Leigh, a female prison officer who works in an all-male prison.
The official synopsis of the show reads: “On a wing bursting at the seams, at the front line of a train-wreck of broken bureaucracy and short-term thinking, Leigh goes above and beyond for her prisoners.
"But Leigh has her own secrets and a past that if discovered, could cost much more than her job. Will mouthy young Rose, a new recruit with her own agenda, mark the end of the line for Leigh – or prove her unlikely saviour?”
Rob Williams writes the new series - and we already have high hopes for what to expect, as he has previously worked on BBC hit Killing Eve.
Speaking about Screw, Rob explained: “There is so much more to prison and those who live and work there, than misery and violence – and I’m incredibly proud to be working with STV and Channel 4 to show this in Screw, alongside the authenticity inspired by my experiences as a civilian worker in various prisons."
Caroline Hollick, Head of Drama at Channel 4, also said: “Screw offers the audience an insight in to the challenges and struggles faced behind bars for both prisoners and prison officers; told with humour, humanity and hope.”
The show has a stellar cast, which includes Love Actually's Nina Sosanya, who stars as our main character Leigh. She'll be joined by Derry Girls firecracker Jamie-Lee O’Donnell.
People will also be familiar with Line of Duty's Faraz Ayub, as well as Game of Thrones's Ron Donachie, and Stephen Wight who was Arabella's roommate in lockdown hit, I May Destroy You.
Filming started in May 2021 so we can expect the show to air around early 2022, but the sooner the better in our opinion.
