"Misfits" will be back!
The BAFTA award-winning UK series will make its highly anticipated return to the U.S. with Season 4 running exclusively on Hulu and Hulu Plus this fall, but it will look very different. The science fiction, comedic series follow a group of young offenders sentenced to work in a community service program where they obtain supernatural powers after a strange electrical storm.
Going into Season 4, "Misfits" lost three stars -- Iwan Rheon, who will star on "Game of Thrones" Season 3; Lauren Socha, who was sentenced to jail for racially aggravated assault against a taxi driver; and [Spoiler Alert] Antonia Thomas, whose character died in the Season 3 finale.
But there are two new juvenile delinquent super-heroes joining "Misfits": Karla Crome will star as Jess and Nathan McMullen as Finn. According to Den of Geek, Jess is like a female Larry David. "She's the person who will say the un-sayable, the person who'll question social norms and etiquette. Jess hates people who bullshit and lie to her," the site reported. Finn, on the other hand, is naively optimistic and eager to please. "Finn talks a lot and often uses this to try and talk himself out of difficult or awkward situations. He is very funny," Den of Geek revealed.
And particularly good new for stateside "Misfits" fans: New episodes of the series will be online shortly after the U.K. airing for the first time.
Hulu launched "Misfits" exclusively in the U.S. in 2011, and it has since become one of the most popular series on the site.
