Misfits is Back With Familiar Boiler Suits and Some New Faces Series 5

Channel 4 have officially announced Joseph Gilgun, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Matthew McNulty, Karla Crome, Nathan McMullen, Matt Stokoe and Shaun Dooley have signed on for a few games of table football at the community centre as Misfits continues filming.
Orange boiler suits? Check. Probation workers with questionable moral guidelines? Check. Surly attitudes and a somewhat cavalier approach to community service? Check and check. Propensity to get involved in life-threatening situations involving power tools, glass bottles, freezers full of cornettos and the occasional body? Check, check and check. Oh and some weird-ass super powers? Most definitely CHECK!
Misfits is back. And it’s business as usual. With a couple of new faces. And some powers right off the actual A-list. New girl Jess (Karla Crome – Hit and Miss, Murder) is zipping on the jumpsuit, she has X-ray vision. And – well actually that’s it. Because Finn (Nathan Mcmullen – Shameless) who also joins Jess, Rudy and Curtis in the locker room, he’s telekinetic, but not in an A-list kind of way.
As Jess and Finn start their community service, it’s not just litter they’re picking up; it’s bad vibes, body parts and power tools. And that’s just the morning shift. With a six foot killer rabbit on the estate, a mysterious but easy-on-the-eye barman (HELLO ALEX!) getting Jess a little shaken but not entirely stirred *winks knowingly* and all hell quite literally breaking loose with the arrival of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, it’s time to power up. The future’s bright. The future’s still a dirty shade of orange.
Matt Strevens (Skins) produces while Nirpal Bhogal, Jonathan Van Tulleken and Dušan Lazarevic take on co-directorial duties. The series was written by the show’s creator Howard Overman and Jon Brown.
Six foot killer rabbit? Sounds like business as usual then for the Misfits. After saying goodbye to some well loved cast members, Misfits will be back with 8x 1hr episodes on E4 later in 2012.
