Filming starts on last series of E4's Misfits

Filming is about to start on the 5th and final series of E4's award-winning series Misfits.

The cast of series 4, Rudy (Joseph Gilgun), Jess (Karla Crome), Finn (Nathan McMullen), Alex (Matt Stokoe) and Abby (Natasha O’Keeffe) are all returning for a final stint of community service.

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....

Murray Ferguson, Chief Executive of Clerkenwell Films, says: “Misfits was a bold and confident commission that backed original ideas and new talent, quickly becoming a hit with its audience on E4 and around the world. It's been great to produce a show that has been able to innovate on screen and online, and that broke new ground premiering with huge success on Hulu in America. Misfits has been an exciting and rewarding ride for us all and we now look forward to ending the show with a bang!”

Writer Howard Overman returns, with one of Screen International's Stars of Tomorrow 2012, 25 year old William McGregor directing the first three episodes.

The new 8 x 60 min series will be produced by Clerkenwell Films  for transmission on E4 in autumn 2013.
