'Misfits' on Logo: UK sci-fi favorite set to air in the US

If you're a fan of genre shows, teen drama, or British accents, you're in luck. The BBC's "Misfits" is coming to U.S. television this summer on Logo! The show, about a group of delinquents who suddenly acquire some wacky, weird super powers, has long been a Hulu hit for fans in the States. We thought the show might be too dark -- and too dirty -- for American audiences, so we're thrilled that Logo has found a way to air it.The first season will begin on Logo on July 19 at 10 p.m. EST, with the subsequent three seasons following it in the coming months. "We're proud to introduce the U.S. television audience to this beloved series, which is like the mutant offspring of 'True Blood' and 'X-Men,'" said Marc Leonard, Logo's Senior Vice President of Multiplatform Programming, in a statement.

Actors Talk 'Misfits' Season 3: Nazis & Zombie Cheerleaders

The wait is finally over for U.S. fans of the hit U.K. series " Misfits. " The popular raunchy sci-fi teen dramedy is returning exclusively to Hulu for Season 3. As sad as we are to see Nathan (Robert Sheehan) go, we have to admit, actor Joe Gilgun, who steps into the new role of Rudy, looks pretty good in that orange jumpsuit. The E4 hit follows a group of young offenders forced to work in a community service program, where they acquire supernatural powers after a strange electrical storm, but being a superhero isn't as easy as it looks, especially when something always seems to go awry for the group. Even though we’ll miss the hysterically obscene Nathan, his replacement is equally as entertaining, according to stars Iwan Rheon and Lauren Socha. "Joe Gilgun is brilliant," Socha told HuffPost TV in a phone interview. "Me and Joe, we live together. We're like brother and sister or more like a married couple, although, we don't have sex. Honestly. He's a male version of me. It's absolutely brilliant."
