THE BBC has confirmed the return date of a popular long-running show which will hit screens this month.
Waterloo Road returned to our screens after eight years away earlier this year.
Now, series two of the school-based drama will air later this month on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
The new series will consist of seven episodes, and a gallery of first-look images have been released to tease what's to come.
Fans can expect new faces who will bring fresh dramas to the school, with one new pupil causing fireworks, while elsewhere secrets come to the fore with potentially devastating consequences for those involved.
Fractured relationships, brutal betrayals and life-changing moments: all in a day’s work for head Kim Campbell (Angela Griffin) and her team.

Following the news that fan favourite and former deputy head, Andrew Treneman (Jamie Glover) is returning to the show, audiences will be kept guessing whether Kim’s old flame is back with good intentions or not.
Meanwhile, new boy Myles (Osian Morgan), who has been let go by a football Academy and is struggling to come to terms with a life back in mainstream education, makes it clear that he’s not there to make friends, and immediately sets about making a lasting impact on the school.
Elsewhere, love is in the air this term as new couples get together and hidden feelings come to the surface.
The students and staff embark on another term of romances and friendships, all whilst navigating issues including mental health, racism, the cost-of-living crisis and being LGBTQ+.
