Great news for USA fans of the series… not sure where the previously-announced Hollywood remake of the series stands.
Until then… hot off the presses:
New York – July 10, 2012 – The award-winning, critically acclaimed series Misfits: Season One is available on DVD for the first time in North America on July 31, 2012.
The provocative show GQ called “outstanding” proves that superpowers, hormones and court-ordered community service are an entertaining mix The DVD includes an exclusive collector’s free t-shirt offer.
Written and created by Howard Overman (Merlin), Misfits took home the 2010 BAFTA TV Award for Drama Series and continues to earn international acclaim.
Kelly (BAFTA-winner Lauren Socha), Nathan (Robert Sheehan, The Borrowers, Season of the Witch), Curtis (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett), Alisha (Antonia Thomas), and Simon (Iwan Rheon) are five unruly teenagers forced to do community service as payback for their crimes. But when a freak electrical storm hits their town, strange things begin to happen to the gang as they discover that they have each developed a superpower, one that reveals their deepest, darkest insecurities.
Though they just want to finish their community service and get through the challenges of everyday teenage life – relationships, friendships, parents and sex – fate has another task in store for them: they must save their town from the evil that has descended upon it.
