Misfits: Series 5 Photos

Tv Season Info

Years after the mysterious electrical thunder storm dished out assorted super powers to those lucky/unlucky enough to be caught out in the rain, bizarre incidents are still a regular occurrence around the community centre. Season 5 has evolved to include none of the original cast and begins with Alex gaining a new superpower thanks to a lung transplant and Finn battles with a dark force more powerful than he could ever have imagined.

Critic Reviews for Misfits Series 5

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Judging by this admittedly entertaining opener, Misfits none the less feels like a series in transition - and a world away from the show that won a Bafta in 2010.

If the rest of this farewell season is as good as this, then we'll be going out on a high.

Not perfect then, but the Misfits series five premiere is a solid enough launchpad for a final run of episodes that I'm still hoping will restore a once-great series to a little of its former glory.

This episode had powers, drama and classic Misfits ridiculousness, I have a feeling that Howard Overman will have an epic ending in store for those of us who have been watching this show from day one.

Series creator Howard Overman has maintained a roster of fascinating, bizarro characters from Alex the handsome barman to the brilliantly crass yet ultimately sweet Rudy.

Misfits is coming to a conclusion.

Audience Reviews for Misfits: Series 5



Super Reviewer


Appropriate that it ends here. The series is still good, and if there were ever more seasons I'd be sure to watch them, but the quality has well and truly dipped since the first couple of years. That's what happens when you set the bar so high out of the gate I guess. The the overarching character development is tied together woefully loosely, the relatable stories aren't as relatable, the fun stories aren't as fun, and answers to questions may not be as good as the questions themselves. Still a good bit o' telly though.
