More Misfits on its way

E4 has commissioned a second series of youth superhero drama Misfits as its first season draws to a climax.

E4 has confirmed that it’s ordered a second season of Misfits, its brand E4new youth superhero drama which has been met with positive reviews from critics. The first series of Misfits draws to a close tonight and E4 has ordered six new episodes to air next year. According to figures the show has so far attracted audiences of up to 1 million viewers – in combined figures. The series is written by Howard Overmann and some view it as a successor to fellow E4 series Skins which is due to return in the New Year for its fourth season. However, Skins shows no signs of faltering with its last season still pulling in respectable figures despite an entirely new cast of characters.
