Misfits is returning to TV – but first there’ll be a special online-only film introducing a new character and seeing the departure of Nathan (Robert Sheehan).
Creator Howard Overman is writing the exclusive online short for E4.com, to be shown just ahead of the show’s new third season later this year. “It’s great to be launching the third series with an online film which introduces our new character Rudy, as well as saying goodbye to Nathan.”
Channel 4 drama boss Robert Wulff-Cochrane adds: “Howard has created some more brilliantly surprising and original storylines. Fans can rest assured that series three will begin in a way no one else could possibly imagine.”
No details of how Nathan departs have been revealed, but Channel 4 hints that “it may or may not involve some pic ‘n’ mix, a Fisherman’s Friend, and a Tripling incident.”
Can Misfits really continue without Nathan? Have your say right here.
