New Regular Cast Members Nathan McMullen and Karla Crome On Board For 4th Season Of E4’s “Misfits”

New Regular Cast Members Nathan McMullen and Karla Crome On Board For 4th Season Of E4's "Misfits"

E4’s Misfits has gone through a bit of a shake-up since its 3rd season ended last year.  Original series cast members Antonia Thomas and Iwan Rheon both exited the show; and Lauren Socha’s 2012 conviction for racially-aggravated assault is likely the reason she’s no longer only pretending to do community-service.

Earlier this year, a casting call went out for three new Misfits characters, to be introduced in the upcoming 4th season.  We now know, thanks to ScreenTerrier, who will be playing two of the roles.

Nathan McMullen (Casualty, Shameless) will be playing the role of Finn, who, according to the casting call, has a childlike naively optimistic view of life, he’s always eager to please and enthusiastic about life. Finn talks a lot and often uses this to try and talk himself out of difficult or awkward situations. He is very funny.”

Karla Crome’s (Hit and Miss) character, Jess, “is a kind of female version of Larry David – smart and articulate, She’s the person who will say the un-sayable, the person who’ll question social norms and etiquette. Jess hates people who bullshit and lie to her.”

The casting of the third new character, Alex, has yet to be announced. Alex is “the sexiest guy on the estate. He is super good looking, all the girls fancy him but for some reason he is very standoffish, he doesn’t seem interested in girls. Everyone reads this as being extremely suspicious and suspect it’s power related.”

McMullen, Crome, and the yet-to-be-named third new cast member will join series regulars Nathan Stewart-Jarrett and Joe Gilgun in season 4 of Misfits.

Kudos to Misfits for this addition of two actors-of-color to what has already been a pretty diverse cast!

If you still need to catch up on the first three seasons of Misfits, you can do so on Hulu.

Both of these people are white.


Btw, I couldn't stand the first new guy, Joe Gilgun, through no fault of his own. The Nathan character was so hilarious that the new guy didn't seem to stand a chance to fill his shoes. I fear a similar thing will happen w/these three newbies.


I'm torn. Partly agree with you all that the old characters were too valuable to the show, but it was such a great show that I'm hoping against hope they can pull it together. Look at me already talking about it in past tense. Dag…


Congrats to them but I'm not too happy about it. I loved the original cast of Nathan, Simon, Alisha, Kelly and Curtis. With Kelly, Simon, Alisha and Nathan gone, I don't think its enough to bring me back now. I went without Nathan with Alisha, Simon and Kelly? Not going to happen! I do hate how the killed off Alisha; it was so damn..ugh!


Even though I'm holding on to the hope that they can make it fresh again, a small part of me agrees with you about letting it die.


I loved the first season of Misfits. Seasons 2 and 3 were good as well but with all the cast changes they really should just let this show die a quiet death.
