E4 have confirmed that series 5 of Misfits will be the last.
Joseph Gilgun, Karla Crome, Nathan McMullen, Matt Stokoe and Natasha O’Keeffe will all return for eight more episodes, which are due to air in the Autumn.
I’m actually sad to see the show go, but I think it has come to its logical conclusion. On one hand, Misfits lends itself to cast changes more than any other show. You do your community service, you complete your hours and move on, but realistically how many people involved in that storm could end up on community service?
The shows creator, Howard Overman hinted earlier this year that he had written the first draft of a movie based on the series. He also teased the previous characters may make an appearance. There have also been talks of an American remake.
