Critic Consensus: A cast overhaul is always a potentially disastrous move for any show, but season three of Misfits pulls it off with aplomb.

Critic Reviews for Misfits Series 3

It was an entertaining episode, but an inauspicious beginning to a series I've always loved. Hopefully the writers have got a few tricks up their sleeves.

Nathan's departure could have signaled the death knell for Misfits... But in one majestically mad-cap pre-title sequence he almost makes us forget Nathan was ever around, so strong is Rudy's introduction.

Gilguna's showboating Rudy pushed the tone a little closer to Shameless than Heroes but it may well turn out to be a canny move.

Fans need not fear however, as snarky, big-mouthed Nathan has been replaced by snarky, big-mouthed Rudy.

The show turns all kinds of crazy which is usual, and it's off to a good start.

It's superpowers used to make exposition easy, and it works.

Well, it was new powers all round - courtesy of Seth, sinister giver of power - with gormless chavgirl Kelly (the excellent Lauren Socha) now fully skilled up as a rocket scientist and Curtis able to turn into a polite young woman.

The show has continued to juggle an ever increasing number of characters and complex narratives within a superpower world, while remaining fun.

For the show was as witty, crude and sharp as it always has been and, instead of being left wanting after Sheehan's departure, the natural and uninhibited Rudy (Gilgun) fits the show like a glove, and has given the central group a new lease of life.

Misfits returns once again with a powerful third season filled all throughout with smart writing, a quircky presentation, faithful acting and a creatively fulfillment of the show's own mythology -- and marvelously delivers the best and most compelling season finale the show has produced thus far.

Leading character Nathan has departed after two seasons, and is replaced with newcomer Rudy. This initially doesn't work out to great, but after the writers stopped just giving Rudy the lines they would have given to Nathan were he still on the show, and instead start building him as his own character, the season gets into stride and is better for it.
