Misfits renewed for series 5
It looks as though E4's Misfits will be returning for a fifth series...
We're still waiting for the official, inked-in, double-stamped announcement, but it's understood that Misfits has been renewed for a fifth series.
Last night saw the broadcast of the show's series four finale (read our review, here), the conclusion to eight episodes of upheaval, new characters, new powers, and - some, at least - disgruntled fans.
Our take is that last night's instalment showed a promising return to the show's sci-fi/fantasy roots, and prepared the ground for a fifth series that will feature less teen relationship drama, and more of the old show's powers, violence and whip-smart dialogue.
Bedding in an almost entirely new cast over just a few episodes is no mean feat, and though series four hasn't been smooth sailing for the E4 show, the finale left us comfortably feeling that a fifth series commission is still cause for celebration.
