Misfits renewed for series 4
E4's foul-mouthed teen sci-fi show Misfits has just been renewed for a fourth year!
This news seems to have leaked without official comment, but it's been reported as fact by such blogs as Bleeding Cool and Digital Spy, so looks pretty solid.
Misfits underwent some changes this year, with the departure of original star Robert Sheehan as Nathan, replaced with Joseph Gilgun as new guy Rudy. This renewal, announced mere days before the third series concludes, seems to confirm that Channel 4 are happy with the performance of the series in the post-Sheehan years. Online reaction has been fairly positive, in particular to Gilgun's new character.
There's also a US version of Misfits reportedly in development, presumably because American viewers might be confused by some of the more intricate British swearing used in the scripts. I can't think of any other reason not to just show the original...
