It's always an exciting time to be a Hollyoaks fan when the Channel 4 soap releases a new trailer, and this latest one is definitely no exception.
Hollyoaks is about to launch an action-packed "Summer of Secrets", with highlights including special episodes filmed in Ibiza, shocking new developments in the Amy Barnes murder case, and the much-anticipated returns of Luke Morgan and Mandy Richardson.
Hit play below to watch the new trailer in full:
If you're anything like us, you'll need to watch the promo a few times to digest all of the new information and juicy spoilers coming your way. Don't worry though, we're here to help too and here's what we've managed to pick out:
1. 'Who Killed Amy?' takes another big twist
Could little Lucas hold the key to the identity of Amy Barnes's real killer? While his dad Ste remains in prison awaiting trial for the crime, Lucas drops the bombshell to his aunty Tegan that somebody else was actually in the flat on the night that Amy died.
Crucially, this person turned up after Ste had left. Is this yet another clue that Ste is actually innocent? As for why Lucas didn't speak up sooner, we blame Leah for never letting him get a word in edgeways!
2. Suspicion falls on James Nightingale
James has always been one of the official suspects in the Amy Barnes whodunit, but with all eyes on Ste, he's never really had the finger pointed at him in the village itself. Until now, that is.
Hollyoaks' new trailer sees DS Armstrong question James's whereabouts on the night of Amy's demise, voicing his suspicions that the slippery lawyer was involved. Could Armstrong be right, or is he just trying to distract attention away from how he stalked Amy before she died?
3. Ste's trial date is revealed
Hollyoaks isn't just teasing this summer's storylines – they've also given us an early hint of what to expect from the autumn too.
Harry and Tony are seen receiving letters which reveal that Ste's murder trial will kick off on September 4, which is sure to be the ideal way to kick off Hollyoaks' autumn season with a bang.
4. New clues on Luke and Mandy's returns
Luke's return to the village is looking jolly enough as he catches up with his old friend Darren, but there are strong hints that he's actually living a secret life.
Darren is shocked to visit Luke's home and see it in a bad state, which appears to suggest that he's fallen on hard times. Luke is also seen hitting the bottle for comfort, but although his time away from Hollyoaks has clearly changed him, it seems his love for Mandy still remains when he drunkenly declares his love for her!
5. Sienna's cervical cancer
As first revealed over the weekend, there's an emotional new storyline on the way for Sienna when she discovers that she has cervical cancer.
Hollyoaks has been working with cancer charity Macmillan while researching the sensitive story, which will see Sienna facing an impossible choice between her own life and those of her unborn twins. Will Warren support Sienna through this?
6. Does Grace expose her own affair?
Warren is currently playing with fire by cheating on Sienna with Grace Black, but we know that the fearsome gangster has always been keen to get what she wants out of this secret relationship.
As the stakes get higher and Warren finds himself with a stalker, could Grace be pushed to reveal their secret to Sienna?
Hollyoaks' special episodes filmed in Ibiza are now just one week away, featuring Alfie, Tom, Prince, Hunter, Neeta, Sally, Ellie and Holly on the holiday of a lifetime.
The sun-kissed storyline also features the introduction of new hunk Brody, who first appears on our screens when he emerges from the sea Daniel Craig-style. He quickly catches the eye of Holly and Ellie, so could either of them be his new love interest?
8. Hunter's feelings for Neeta get stronger
Hunter's crush on Neeta will take a big leap during their time in Ibiza and when they return to Hollyoaks, he's determined to make sure that she turns her back on her villainous partner Mac.
Neeta clearly has a major decision to make here, but could her secret relationship with Hunter be discovered by Mac? The trailer seems to suggest it will, as he demands to know the identity of the other man in Neeta's life.
9. Armstrong isn't finished with Cindy yet
If you thought Armstrong's scary scenes with Cindy in the hotel this week were the end of his weird ways, think again. The new trailer shows that Armstrong will continue his obsession with Cindy, who struggles to convince everybody of what's really going on. Does Armstrong still have the upper hand?
10. Farrah and Kim get closer
Their relationship is currently strictly professional, but we'll see Farrah and Kim take things to the next level over the summer. This is much to the concern of Farrah's mum Misbah, who knows her daughter is on a dangerous path by dating one of her own patients. Could this come back to haunt Farrah?
11. Tracey returns
You can always count on Lisa Maxwell's character Tracey to cause fireworks for the Donovan family and it looks like she'll be up to her old tricks over the summer.
Now out of prison, Tracey is reunited with her family and her old enemy Darcy Wilde. Will trouble kick off for all concerned? If the trailer is anything to go by, all hell will be breaking loose!
12. Lily's new struggles
Bad boy Prince McQueen shows how much Lily means to him during his time in Ibiza when he gets a tattoo of her name – it's just a shame that it actually says "Lilo"!
Back in the village, Lily is struggling to come to terms with her scars and it's clear they're badly affecting her self-esteem. Will she have Prince's support?
13. Brody moves to the village
After his memorable entrance in Ibiza, Brody will be moving to the Hollyoaks village – bringing with him a huge secret about something that happened during the holiday. Which characters should be worried over what he knows about them?
Brody is also reunited with his best mate Damon, who was recently introduced as Scott's long-lost brother. Is this the start of a brand new double act?
