All Five Seasons Of Misfits Are Coming To Netflix UK And Ireland Next Month

All Five Seasons Of Misfits Are Coming To Netflix UK And Ireland Next Month

All five seasons of Misfits are being added to Netflix UK and Ireland next month, meaning you can see actor Robert Sheehan in action before his Umbrella Academy days.

For the uninitiated, Misfits is a sci-fi comedy-drama series that aired on E4 from 2009, bowing out with a fifth series in 2013.

It followed a group of young offenders as they come together for a community service programme, only to each obtain mysterious supernatural powers following an electrical storm.

Alongside Irish star Sheehan, the show also features a host of well-known British names including Antonia Thomas, Iwan Rheon, Lauren Socha and Nathan Stewart-Jarrett.

If you were a fan back in the day, from 15 September you'll be able to revisit the cult series on Netflix, where newbies can also binge their way right through it for the first time.

Announcing the big news on Twitter, Netflix wrote: "ROBERT SHEEHAN NEWS: If S2 of The Umbrella Academy didn't scratch your itch, *all five* seasons of Misfits will be coming to @NetflixUK on 15 September."

Many fans were delighted by the news, with one tweeting: "Yessss booiiii."

All Five Seasons Of Misfits Is Coming To Netflix Today

A third added: "Funny show that and Nathan [Sheehan's character] makes that show can't wait to watch it again."

Of course, if you can't wait that long for your Robert Sheehan fix, you can always catch him in the second series of The Umbrella Academy, which premiered at the end of last month.

The Netflix drama, which is adapted from graphic novels by My Chemical Romance's Gerard Way, follows a dysfunctional adopted family who all happen to be superheroes (sounds familiar, right?), with Sheehan playing flamboyant drug and alcohol addict Klaus Hargreeves, aka Number Four.

Last time we saw them, the Hargreeves siblings had just travelled back in time so that they could stop Vanya (Ellen Page) from destroying the planet as her evil alter-ego, the White Violin.

A full series two synopsis reads: "Five warned his family (so, so many times) that using his powers to escape from Vanya's 2019 apocalypse was risky. Well, he was right - the time jump scatters the siblings in time in and around Dallas, Texas. Over a three year period. Starting in 1960.

"Some, having been stuck in the past for years, have built lives and moved on, certain they're the only ones who survived. Five is the last to land, smack dab in the middle of a nuclear doomsday, which - spoiler alert! - turns out is a result of the group's disruption of the timeline (déjà vu, anyone?).

"Now the Umbrella Academy must find a way to reunite, figure out what caused doomsday, put a stop to it, and return to the present timeline to stop that other apocalypse. All while being hunted by a trio of ruthless Swedish assassins. But seriously, no pressure or anything."

You can catch Misfits on Netflix from 15 September, while both seasons of The Umbrella Academy are available to watch now.
