Skins writer Georgia Lester has revealed that the show's fourth series will feature "lots of heartbreak".
Speaking exclusively to Digital Spy, she confessed that the love triangle between Freddie, Effy and Cook will finally be resolved.
"Effy does choose someone, but I can't tell you who!" she said. "Nothing can be happy when it comes to Effy, so there's a lot of heartbreak. They all become mended at points."
Lester added that she will miss working with Kaya Scodelario (Effy) when the cast are axed at the end of series four.
"I think she really has grown within Skins and the audience has loved her. But I think it's another challenge for the writers and for the audience to accept - if we do get recommissioned - a completely new cast.
"I think it will be very sad when she leaves - Kaya's been a massive part of Skins."
