For as long as anyone can remember, there have been stories about Bishop Grave School. Terrible secrets were once buried within its foundations, screaming to be unleashed. Some children spoke of ghosts... others, strange noises... but nobody ever believed them.
Those who remember - and dare - still talk of the events from thirty years ago. They whisper about conspiracies and computers, fascists and scientists... and a mysterious man called Eldritch who wanted to bring about the end of the world.
Taylor Sullivan knows these stories better than anyone - their mother lived through them - but even that cannot prepare them for what’s to come. As a new year brings fresh dangers, can Taylor and their friends discover the secrets of Bishop Grave's past... before that past discovers them?

Kate Winslet said: “I was delighted to be asked to come back! It’s been genuinely moving and wonderful to revisit those early days of my career. What a way to start, with the now-legendary Russell T Davies! I really treasure those early moments when I learnt so much. Those invaluable early days starting out as a small fish in an enormous pond.... it was a pivotal time in my life.
“Now, the story goes on and there’s a whole other generation of young people who will enjoy Dark Season. It’s been absolutely lovely to be invited back and to be able to give my voice to the character again after so many years, is very special.”
Russell T Davies added: “This has been one of the great joys of my life. The first show I ever wrote, back again, with brand-new adventures! And to get all the cast back together - Kate, Victoria, Brigit, Grant and Ben - is the greatest compliment of all. All of us united in very happy memories.”
