The mighty Misfits is heading to America, as the team behind Gossip Girl and Chuck begin work on a US remake...

For the past couple of years, Misfits has clearly demonstrated that you don’t need a massive budget to make a compelling genre television show. Much of this is down to the genius of show creator Howard Overman and his team, and the third season of Misfits looks set to keep the standard high.

All of which makes the news that a US remake of the series in the works unsurprisingly. In fact, the only puzzle is why it took so long.
The Hollywood Report is saying that Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, the team behind Gossip Girl and Chuck, have picked up the rights. And while there’s no network involved at this stage, work is underway on putting a remake together.

We’ll bring you more news on this as we get it. In the meantime, our spoiler-free review of Misfits series three episode one can be found right here...
