Good news! Hopefully Robert will return!
Misfits has been recommissioned for a second series, E4 has announced.
The teen comedy drama, which follows a group of youths with superpowers, will return with six new episodes in 2010.
“Misfits always felt like a perfect E4 show and the response has been phenomenal,” said head of drama Camilla Campbell.
“I’m delighted to commission a second series, and like its fans, I can’t wait to see where Howard’s inventive scripts take us and the gang.”
Misfits, which ends its first run tonight on E4, has so far pulled in an average of 431k (2.6%) viewers in its 10pm slot.
I have created a video archive, not many videos yet but soon will, if anyone has any fan videos they are welcome 🙂
“It’s called Killing Bono and it’s based on the book “I Was Bono’s Doppelganger” by Neil McCormick. I’ve got about eight songs done, finished recording in the last few weeks, and I’ll be on set in January as a musical advisor.”
The first piece of news concerns the film version of the acclaimed book which will be helmed by Hollywood director Nick Hamm. Featuring iconic actors such as Bill Nighy alongside upstarts such as Ben Barnes (Prince Caspian) and Irish actor Robert Sheehan, Joe Echo will be on set as musical provider and advisor.
Gribbin’s involvement seems only natural after extensive work on and off the film set having recorded the soundtrack to forthcoming British film Heartless; itself no stranger to good press reviews.
