Misfits - Series 5 To Be The Last
If you believe in things coming in three, then this news probably won't be a shock to the system. In less than six months, both Merlin and Being Human promptly ended with their respective fifth series and it seems that Misfits is following suit as it's been confirmed that the upcoming fifth year that's being filmed at the moment will be the show's last one.
The upcoming series, comprising of eight more episodes will see the current gang of Abby (Natasha O'Keeffe), Finn (Nathan McMullen), Alex (Matt Stokoe), Jess (Karla Crome) and Rudy (Joseph Gilgun) dealing with the first anniversary of the storm while creator Howard Overman (currently working on upcoming BBC1 Saturday night drama, Atlantis) has promised a glorious ride for our gang who won't be going out quietly.
I can't really say it's much of a shock that Misfits will be ending this year. Like with Being Human and Merlin, I think most of us saw it coming and as fun as the fourth series could be at times, it did seem like the show was running out of steam a bit. I just hope that the upcoming final series we do get the send off the show deserves though.
