It's business as usual. With a couple of new faces. And some powers right off the actual A-list. New girl Jess is zipping on the jumpsuit, she has X-ray vision. And - well actually that's it. Because Finn who also joins Jess, Rudy and Curtis in the locker room, he's telekinetic, but not in an A-list kind of way.

As Jess and Finn start their community service, it's not just litter they're picking up; it's bad vibes, body parts and power tools. And that's just the morning shift. With a six foot killer rabbit on the estate, a mysterious but easy-on-the-eye barman (HELLO ALEX!) getting Jess a little shaken but not entirely stirred *winks knowingly* and all hell quite literally breaking loose with the arrival of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, it's time to power up. The future's bright. The future's still a dirty shade of orange.

New gang members Finn and Jess are zipping up those iconic orange jumpsuits for their first day of community service and meeting their probation worker... or is it their new probation worker?

Things become stranger still when a man stumbles into the community centre with a briefcase and a power that infects them all. The truth unravels in a series of tense flashbacks and it's soon clear to Finn and Jess that there's more to community service than scrubbing off graffiti and picking up litter.
