Online episode that show’s Nathan’s departure will be available from 15 September
Here’s the first image from “Vegas Baby!” the special online episode of Misfits that bridges series two and series three, explaining the departure of Nathan (Robert Sheehan).
The eight minute Misfits film will “ay farewell to Nathan and hearty hello to Joe [Joe Gilgun].”
The film focusses on Nathan, who – armed with a new superpower – “has got a plan to go out in style. His target? Las Vegas, baby! With Marnie and little Nathan Jnr still in the picture, Nathan is plotting to use his new superpower to scam the casinos. It’s a sure-fire plan that can't fail. Except it will, of course.”
Series three itself will return in October to E4, which has released this mildly spoilery synopsis:
“Stuck doing his community service, new kid on the block Rudy soon realises that he wasn’t the only one caught in the storm – that he’s not the only one trying to come to terms with living with a superpower. But as ever in the Misfits world it is not long before Rudy finds himself in a whole heap of superpower trouble…
“Meanwhile the rest of the gang are trying to adapt to life with their new superpowers. But just how did the trade-off with Seth, the superpower dealer, go down?
“With zombies on the loose, body-swap confusion, ghostly hauntings from the past and Simon trying to fulfil his destiny to become Superhoodie, things haven’t become any quieter for our gang.
“Joe Gilgun and Matthew McNulty join the regular line up alongside Misfits resident delinquents Bafta winner Lauren Socha, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Antonia Thomas and Iwan Rheon in the super-sized series which sees its run extended to eight episodes.”
