'Misfits' Latest on Third Series, Spin Off, US Version

As part of the Independent's television review of the year, E4's "ASBO superhero" drama, Misfits, has been named "Upstarts of the Year".

In November, as series 2 of Misfits began in the UK, signs were already emerging that a third series had been commissioned and that a US version was being considered. That series came to a close just before Christmas – with a spectacular season finale and an extended Christmas special – and fans were rewarded with confirmation that a third series is already in development.

Furthermore, Overman hinted that the Misfits universe could be expanded a la Doctor Who, with a spin-off series being considered.
