Howard Overman and Matt Stevens, the creator and producer of E4's superhero hit Misfits, were involved with a live web-chat on the show's official site earlier today. During their dialogue, they revealed a few things about the currently filming fourth series (including the fact Shaun Dooley's playing the latest probation worker), updated fans on the prospect of a US remake ("the storm will reach any country which I sell the format to. So it looks like there might be a storm in America soon..."), teased what to expect from series 4 ("... killer rabbits and the four horsemen of the apocalypse and a puppy [that] meets a very tragic demise"), and revealed what the new character's super-powers will be ("... telekinesis, x-ray vision, a very bad memory, and the power to be pussy whipped").
They also released a brand new photo of the cast (above), which now includes Karla Crome (Hit & Miss) as Jess and Nathan McMullen as Finn. The other two new characters, Alex and Abby, apparently won't be wearing the gang's signature orange boiler suits... for the time being.
Excited for Misfits' series 4 yet? I have to say, I really like the look of the new gang in that photo.
