to up their game if they're going to tackle some real-life, A-grade,
The final series sees the return of:
Karla Crome as Jess. Having had her heart broken by Alex ‘the handsome barman’ in Series 4,
Jess is now more determined than ever that she won’t let her
vulnerability show. But despite her cool exterior, an unlikely liaison
is on the horizon that takes her completely by surprise.
Joseph Gilgun as Rudy. In the final series of Misfits, Rudy 2 discovers a support group for
people with super powers, and once there he is encouraged by fellow
attendees to stop taking flak from Rudy 1 and stand on his own two feet.
When Rudy 2 confronts his other half about wanting to become his own
person, Rudy 1 is predictably furious and dismissive, leading to a
falling out between the two Rudys. But when Rudy 2 goes missing, Rudy 1
finds he can’t cope as well on his own as he thought.
Nathan McMullen as Finn. Loveable Liverpudlian Finn tries hard (perhaps a little too hard) to
befriend people and please almost everyone, especially Jess whom he has
had a crush on since they first met. But when he is captured by a group
of Devil-worshipping scouts and the beginning of Series 5, the gang soon
realise they will do whatever it takes to save their friend.
Matt Stokoe as Alex. In the opening episode, handsome barman Alex discovers that he has acquired a strange new superpower
that he has to use on one of the gang. The ensuing chaos sees Alex doing
community service and finally joining the rest of the guys in orange.
Natasha O’Keeffe as Abby. Series 5 sees Abby fall in love with a series of unlikely partners, but
Abby has an emptiness at the heart of her. She has no memories of life
before the storm – she doesn’t know who she is and no one seems to be
looking for her. She’s desperate to discover the truth about what
happened to her but when she does, her life becomes more complicated
than ever, revealing a history that leads to a terrifying fight for her
