Twists Unleashed: Screw Season 2 Release Date


Screw Season 2 is all set to return. The main cast of the first season of the Scottish prison drama Screw will return for a second season. The drama series depicts the harsh and occasionally darkly humorous reality of working as a prison guard at a men’s jail.

In the first season, Jamie-Lee O’Donnell’s character Rose Gill from Derry Girls joined the prison staff as a loud-mouthed new guard who was taken under the wing of veteran guard Leigh from Good Omens.

Rose has gained a lot of knowledge throughout her time at Long Marsh jail in the second season. The workforce wants a new beginning, but when rumours circulate that an undercover cop is working at C Wing, things don’t go as expected.

The Derry Girls favorite Jamie-Lee O’Donnell, Nina Sosanya from Love Actually, and Faraz Ayub from Line of Duty all appear in the jail comedy-drama, and it is anticipated that these actors will reprise their roles.

In a statement regarding Screw season 2, creator and writer Rob Williams said: “I’m delighted to get the opportunity to dig deeper into the complicated characters on C Wing — we have a lot more stories to tell — and to continue working with the incredible team at Channel 4.”

What will be the plot for Screw Season 2?

The season 2 premise, according to the show’s creators, is that “our team of embattled prison officers, led by Leigh Henry, are determined to make a fresh start after the tragic events of the season 1 finale.”Moving on isn’t always easy, as those who reside behind the cell doors of C Wing are all too familiar with it. Leigh’s new relationship with Rose, as well as the secrets they share, will be put to the test in light of the top-level changes and the new faces both on the wing and in the staff room.

Rumors of an undercover cop on the wing not only pose a threat to the peace at Long Marsh but also have the potential to reveal a criminal scheme involving at least one of our officers while the entire team works to make a difference in the difficult lives under their care. And the truth will eventually surface in some way.

Is Screw filmed in a real prison?

The exterior sequences of Peterhead jail, a notorious establishment on Scotland’s east coast once known as “Scotland’s gulag,” were filmed for the first season of Screw, which was partially shot at a genuine jail complex.

The jail was in operation from 1888 until 2013 and had a capacity of 400 inmates. It also served as a special facility for sex offenders. Since the prison was shut down, it has been a museum.

Sosanya, a member of the cast of The Screw, recalled their visit to the prison before filming: “We were allowed to have a look inside and it was a shock seeing the small sizes of the cells, the narrow doors, and the low ceilings.”

The 2018 British zombie thriller Redcon-1, about special forces commandos who must infiltrate a quarantine zone to rescue a scientist who has the last cure to save humanity from the zombie pandemic, also used Peterhead Prison as its filming location.

In the movie Screw, Long Marsh Men’s Institution, a made-up Scottish institution, is represented by Peterhead. 

The prison’s interior scenes were recorded on a three-story set in Glasgow’s Kelvin Hall TV and Film Studios.
