article imageMisfits: season 3 confirmed, spin-off also possible

By Mathew Wace Peck     Dec 24, 2010 in Entertainment
Howard Overman has confirmed that there will be a third season of E4's surprise hit, Misfits, a British TV show which follows the exploits of a group of teenagers who acquire superhero powers while on community service.
The news follows last week's episodes – the series-two finale and the long-anticipated Christmas special.
The drama series – which is produced for Channel 4 by Clerkenwell Productions – was a surprise hit when it was shown on E4 last year, going on to win the 2009 BAFTA Best Drama Award.
The show's creator/writer, Howard Overman, took part in an on-line discussion with fans, where he confirmed that a third series is on the way.
According to, Misfit producers suggested, also, that a spin-off series – akin to what has happened with the BBC's Doctor Who – could follow, "with other writers [. . .] joining Howard Overman to expand the Misfits universe".
One fan of the show, LEEE777, responded, saying: "This is indeed very good news as I personally am a big fan of this franchise and if they go the way BBC's Dr Who [sic] has with their franchise, we could get some interesting new series spun from the Misfits.
To date, since Doctor Who returned to TV screens in 2005, there have been three spin-off series – Torchwood, The Sarah Jane Adventures and, most recently, K9.
The Misfits 2010 Christmas special is repeated on E4 tonight, Christmas Eve, at midnight, British time. Meanwhile, the Doctor Who Christmas special, A Christmas Carol, will be broadcast in the UK and US on Christmas Day.
