Misfits Reboot Coming To America With Four Of Five Main Cast Set

The reboot will seemingly differ by having the new cast act similarly to the original.

A second attempt at an American adaptation of the British supernatural drama Misfits is in the works, thanks to Freeform and Diane Ruggiero-Wright, executive producer of iZombie. Ruggiero-Wright wrote the pilot and will showrun if picked up to series. 

The show, which has only landed a pilot so far, has cast four of the five leads already, keeping the character names and personalities intact. The four principals are Ashleigh LaThrop as Alicia, Tre Hall as Curtis, Allie MacDonald as Kelly, and Jake Cannavale as Nathan. The role of Simon, previously played by Iwan Rheon, has not been cast.

The first attempt at an adaptation was in 2016 with a deal at ABC Studios. Josh Schwartz, who is producing with Stephanie Savage under their company Fake Empire, has been actively been developing the reboot since 2011. The original series followed a group of working-class teens who, while performing community service, found themselves caught in a freak electrical storm that granted them superpowers. Grey's Anatomy's Victoria "Vic" Mahoney is set to direct the pilot.
