Grange Hill reboots, following in footsteps of Heartbreak High

7 May 2023

Another school drama show is making a comeback. British TV series Grange Hill, which was set at a comprehensive school in London, and originally screened between 1978 and 2008, is set to return.

The Grange Hill revival follows the 2022 reboot of Australian high-school drama series Heartbreak High, which, by the way, is returning for a second series later this year.

Unlike Heartbreak High though, the Grange Hill reprise will be a movie, rather than a new TV series. And while few of the cast from the original Heartbreak High show of the 1990’s returned in 2022, the Grange Hill film will feature a number of old faces, according to Welsh actor Sara Sugarman, who portrayed student activist Jessica Samuels, and is directing the movie:

While Sugarman did not confirm whether she would reprise her role, she did tease that the film will “definitely” feature appearances from multiple original cast members. The TV show launched the careers of actors including Todd Carty, who played Peter “Tucker” Jenkins, Susan Tully, who starred as Suzanne Ross, and Lee MacDonald, who played Zammo.
