While the gang are out on the estate picking up litter, Rudy discovers that his dad is having an affair. With some help from Jess, Rudy investigates further and finds out his dad has a superpower of his own, a dark secret he has kept hidden from his family.
As Rudy and Jess find themselves thrown together, Rudy is shocked to discover he has feelings for her. Meanwhile at the superpower support group, Rudy Two meets a mysterious boy with the power to fly and he starts to believe that the jumper Maggie knitted him really does hold the secrets to the gang’s future.
Spoiler warning: this interview contains plot details for Misfits series 5.
Can you tell us what we can expect from series five?
JG: It’s going to be a big year, isn’t it?
NM: Yeah, well, it’s the final season and we want to go out with a bang and I think the storylines are really fast-paced as well. I guess the first few episodes do try to revert back to the original style of the show where it was a bit gritty and messy.
JG: It’s a bit more power-based as well. I think people missed the powers last year because there weren’t many power-type scenes where they could see us using them, so this year there’s a lot more. As a result, it’s been a fucking ball-ache to film.
Can we expect any more Rudys in this series?
JG: Thank heaven above that there’s no more Rudys because, honest to God man… it’s just the amount of work that’s involved in shooting as three people. You’ve gotta do it all, so that’s three sets of lines on one day and it’s mental. By the end of the day you think your head’s gonna fall off, but this time there’s only the two. I’ve gotta say, it’s been a real joy playing them, but usually I prefer one to the other. Usually it’s Rudy because he’s easier to play – the big gobshite. I’d have loved to have done a gay Rudy – he would have been a good one in the group.

The fifth and final season of Misfits will premiere on E4 on Wednesday October 23rd at 10pm, it has been announced.
Created by Howard Overman, Misfts follows a group of young offenders sentenced to work in a community service programme, where they obtain supernatural powers after a strange electrical storm. The final season marks the first anniversary of the storm and a support group forms on the estate for those people who find having a super power isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Like the ability to knit visions of the future, or to shag unwanted powers out of other people or to transform into a turtle. And as Dark Rudy likes to talk-slash-moan, it should come as no surprise that he is the first of our gang to start attending. And it’s here that he sees a very different future facing the team – one which could change things forever. The dramedy series is produced by Clerkenwell Films and stars Joseph Gilgun, Karla Crome, Nathan McMullen, Matt Stokoe and Natasha O’Keeffe.
