Great news for USA fans of the series... not sure where the previously-announced Hollywood remake of the series stands.

Until then... hot off the presses:

New York – July 10, 2012 – The award-winning, critically acclaimed series Misfits: Season One is available on DVD for the first time in North America on July 31, 2012.

The provocative show GQ called “outstanding” proves that superpowers, hormones and court-ordered community service are an entertaining mix The DVD includes an exclusive collector’s free t-shirt offer.

Written and created by Howard Overman (Merlin), Misfits took home the 2010 BAFTA TV Award for Drama Series and continues to earn international acclaim.

Kelly (BAFTA-winner Lauren Socha), Nathan (Robert Sheehan, The Borrowers, Season of the Witch), Curtis (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett), Alisha (Antonia Thomas), and Simon (Iwan Rheon) are five unruly teenagers forced to do community service as payback for their crimes. But when a freak electrical storm hits their town, strange things begin to happen to the gang as they discover that they have each developed a superpower, one that reveals their deepest, darkest insecurities.

Though they just want to finish their community service and get through the challenges of everyday teenage life - relationships, friendships, parents and sex - fate has another task in store for them: they must save their town from the evil that has descended upon it. With abilities ranging from invisibility to hearing people’s thoughts, these young malcontents are going to learn that having great power sure can get in the way of having a great time.

In 2011, Misfits premiered exclusively in the U.S. on Hulu and Hulu Plus, and is launching on Logo starting July 19, 2012. In Canada, the series premiered in Spring 2010 on Showcase and on BBC Canada.

Bonus features include:

· Making of Misfits

· Cast and Crew Interviews

· Simon’s Films

· A collector’s item that can’t be missed- an exclusive Misfits t-shirt with every DVD.
