The second run of the BAFTA-winning superhero comedy drama series comes to Channel 4. A mysterious masked man leads the gang to Nathan’s grave, where Kelly hears his thoughts and realises that he’s still alive. The gang dig Nathan up, and their new probation worker Shaun gets him back into the community service system, even though he’s officially dead. The reunited friends meet Lucy, a patient on day release from a psychiatric ward who is doing an art therapy class at the community centre. But Simon has met Lucy before: he used to be a patient at the psychiatric unit, where Lucy became obsessed with him. And after Simon publicly snubs Lucy, strange things start to happen around the community centre.
