Heads up Misfits fans, we're back! And for series 3 the gang are joined by the very lovely Joseph Gilgun as new guy Rudy. He is coming out to play with regulars Lauren, Nathan, Iwan and Antonia for a super-sized series of eight whole ruddy episodes.
New kid on the block Rudy gets a rude awakening in his first few days of community service, learning that with the keys to the infamous locker room comes a great deal of running and screaming and, in some instances, killing. But that really is the least of his worries. More pressing is just how to keep his secret superpower a, well, secret. And just how super is it? As in is it one from the A- List?The rest of the gang are also back with their all-new powers. How did that trade-off with Seth the superpower dealer (Matthew McNulty), go down – remember that, from the Xmas spesh?
You'd hope that at least one of them has a power approaching something halfway useful. And is Simon any closer to fulfilling his destiny as Superhoodie?We've got power trading, rampant zombies, a load of havoc from the past and even more from the present... business as Misfitty usual then!
Misfits follows five outsiders on community service who get struck by a flash storm and lumbered with special powers.
Hard as nails Kelly (Lauren Socha) can suddenly hear people’s thoughts, shamed sporting hero Curtis (Nathan Stewart Jarrett) discovers he has the ability to turn back time when he regrets something, and party girl Alisha (Antonia Thomas) can send people into a sexual frenzy when they touch her skin. Even painfully shy Simon (Iwan Rheon) can make himself invisible when he feels he’s being ignored, which makes it all the more hard to swallow for smart aleck Nathan (Robert Sheehan), who seems to have been unaffected, much to his dismay.
Unlike their more conventional counterparts, our misfits don’t swap their ankle tags and mobile phones for capes and tights. Instead, they discover what a pain in the arse life can be when you’re stuck with a super power you didn’t want.
