The highly anticipated return of the BAFTA Award-winning sci-fi dramedy, otherwise known as Misfits, is back for a 5th season, which is wrapping up its UK run, and is now set to debut in the USA, via Hulu, starting on October 21.
The ensemble cast of f young offenders sentenced to work in a community service program where they obtain supernatural powers after a strange electrical storm, includes Rudy (Joseph Gilgun), Abbey (Natasha O’Keeffe), Finn (Nathan McMullen), and Jess (Karla Crome).
In the fifth season, it’s 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 hyped up to be.
Expect new characters with surprising powers, and a team of A-grade super-powered vigilantes.
All 8 new episodes of the show will launch on Hulu and Hulu Plus shortly after the U.K. airing.
