Misfits

You can watch season 4 of the hit Brit series, Misfits, on Hulu right now, if you haven't been keeping up, and catch up before season 5, which the UK's Channel 4 just announced will debut in the fall of this year on E4.

However, one key piece of news included in today's announcement is that the 5th season will be the FINAL season for the series, which means, after season 5, no more Misfits. Although that shouldn't be a big surprise, especially as it was revealed earlier this year that viewership dropped a bit from season 3 to season 4. 

And based on some of your past comments, a number of you stopped watching the series after certain characters left. 

Here's the announcement from Channel 4:

Misfits creator Howard Overman, Clerkenwell Films and E4 today announced that Rudy (Joseph Gilgun), Jess (Karla Crome), Finn (Nathan McMullen), Alex (Matt Stokoe) and Abby (Natasha O’Keeffe) will sign on for community service one last time in the fifth and final run of the award-winning series – to air on E4 in autumn 2013. All good things must come to an end. It’s tough. We know. But that’s life. We have to deal with it and so do you. But guys, we can help each other, we can talk about our feelings of impending loss and sadness, like you know, a support group. In fact, there’s an idea….

And a support group is what will be at the center of the 8-episode season 5. More from Channel 4 on that:

The new series marks the first anniversary of the storm and a support group forms on the estate for those people who find having a super power isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Like… the ability to knit visions of the future, or to shag unwanted powers out of other people (you read that right) or to transform into a turtle. And as Dark Rudy likes to talk-slash-moan, it should come as no surprise that he is the first of our gang to start attending. And it’s here that he sees a very different future facing the team - one which could change things forever.

Season 4 returned to Channel 4 in the UK, last October, airing on Hulu in the USA a day after episodes aired in the UK, which excited fans Stateside, because it meant, no more having to wait for months for each episode. Season 4 saw the return of Curtis (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett), Rudy (Joseph Gilgun) and Seth (Matthew McNulty), and new heroes, Jess (Karla Crome) and Finn (Nathan McMullen).

The provocative, outstanding series which proves that superpowers, hormones and court-ordered community service can be an entertaining combo, is written and created by Howard Overman (Merlin).

There was once talk of a USA remake of the series; no word on if that's still in development.

Will you miss Misfits?
