Misfits to get a US remake

An adaptation of E4’s Misfits has been given the greenlight by the American network Freeform.

Misfits told the story of five young offenders who each develop superpowers during a lightening storm while doing community service. The show was hailed for its originality in the superhero genre and for its hilarious writing.

The US adaptation comes from Fake Empire and Diane Ruggiero-Wright and had already cast Ashleigh Lathrop as Alicia, Tre Hal as Curtis, Allie MacDonald as Kelley and Jake Cannavale as Nathan

The last few UK to US teen remakes have been….not the best…(skins am looking at you!) and as alot of American teen shows to rely on the high school motif and an affluent backgroud it would be interesting to see how this show works.

I mean the show has a lot of room to explore issues going in America at the moment and simultaneously poke fun at the oversaturation superheroes in films today.

I’ll definitely keep an eye on this one.
