The wait is finally over for American fans of Misfits, as news today reveals that Series 3 of the sci-fi teen dramedy is returning exclusively to Hulu (for free!) this December.
The UK hit series follows a group of young offenders undergoing community service who get struck by a flash storm and consequently find themselves with supernatural powers.
This latest series introduces us to new addition Rudy (Joseph Gilgun), who will be joining the remaining four members of the supernatural ASBO gang – chav Kelly (Lauren Socha), sporty Curtis (Nathan Stewart Jarrett), party girl Alisha (Antonia Thomas) and socially awkward Simon (Iwan Rheon) – each with all new powers to help get them out of their constantly troubled situations.
I’ve been lucky enough to see the first three episodes of the series, and I can dismiss all your worries by saying that Gilgun is a great addition to the cast, and the spark between the character continues without Nathan (Robert Sheehan) around.
Season 3 of Misfits will premiere on Hulu on 19th December with new episodes every Monday. They will also premiere Nathan’s goodbye webisode, ‘Vegas Baby!’ on 12th December.
You can watch a few clips from the new series here, and watch the series trailer below.
