MISFITS SEASON 4 Won’t See the Return of Simon And Alisha

Okay, so just in case there was any doubt for the title:


Right, now that’s out of the way, lets get down to the dirt. Bleeding Cool have reported that following Simon’s death in Misfits, or rather his future self’s death he, along with Alisha who was killed in the Season 3 finale wont be returning for Season 4. Alisha is killed by someone who is already dead and as a result, Simon takes the decision to fulfill his destiny and go back in time to become Super Hoodie and save Kelly’s life in the past, and thus will inevitably die in the attempt. The episode ends with Kelly, Curtis and two Rudy’s taking their traditional rooftop pose, with an uncertain future ahead.  The two actors had this to say on their respective FaceBook and Twitter feeds:

Actor Iwan Rheon posted on Facebook;

Thanks for all the comments and support. I’m so grateful for the opportunity that MisFits gave me and all the fun I had doing it. But I have left now and look forward to doing exciting new things. The show must go on!

And yesterday actress Antonia Thomas tweeted (since deleted);

Really hope you all enjoyed the last episode! I’ve had an amazing time on Misfits – thanks so much for all the support!

I won’t be coming back for series 4 but I can’t wait to see it! I’ve had an amazing time in Misfits – it has been epic!

I have to admire the pure brass of Misfits as one of the few TV shows where no one is genuinely safe, with cast members regularly buying it. Now the big question is who’s going to replace the two lost cast members?

    Thought the show would have faltered without them but im glad im wrong. New season is flipping great mun.

  • Jonix

    I got it!! Nathan, Alisha and Simon will be back for the finale. They will go to take him in Las Vegas, do you remember the photo? Well, Nathan is still here.

    From day one Simon was my favorite and the number one reason I watched the series. Of the four original character, they now only have my number three, Nathan was four. Do I like the new characters? Not really.

  • http://www.facebook.com/selinashiels Selina Shiels

    i think the more important question is, who is dumb enough to be there next social worker? Seriously though as much as Simon was without a doubt my favorite character, as long as the writers continue to deliver good quality original scripts, then i will continue to watch

  • Insight

    Nathan is the funny one bring him back take the show to las Vagas Simon don’t havt to die he can make a diff choice and change everything and they all cud go to las vagas to save Nathan

  • Smiley@MisfitsIsDaBest!

    Nathan Has To Come Bak so he can c rudy that would b great cuz nathan is better but i wonder how they will exit kelly it would have to be episode 1 series 4 unless they do for her wat they did for nathan and make a 20 minutes long episode explaining what happen and if nathan dose return he needs a better power like a super twat lol jk

    i want alisha and simon to stay they were my favourites next to nathan and they took him out in season three :(

  • http://YourWebsite ashley

    i think its stupid to kill off the main 2 people really… i liked simon and i liked alisha they were my favourite. the show will suck without them.

    • Smiley@MisfitsIsDaBest!

      No I can Watch it with out them i almost stopped watching it because nathan left he was misfits n wen he left it was all about berry n alishia

    anything is possible. Another mystical storm may brew and everything goes back to the beginning when all the cast members met and different story begins. Or Nathan meets a person who is also affected by the storm and buys a power to go back in time or reverse time. A writer and plenty of money can do wonders.

    u might as well stop producing cause without nathan, alisha and simon, theres no point anymore cause they were the best characters

  • http://none Connie Coburg

    not sure how series four will go with just Kelly and Kurtis, but the last episode could end with another storm and they start again, which mens they’re all back at the beginning and that’s the end. oops i forgot about the two Rudy’s…love that guy…

  • Pheel

    People!! Of course Alisha and Simon (or even Nathan) could come back, the writers can always find a way… But the sad thing is that the actors wanted out :( i dont think the show will survive if the production cant convince them to be back…

  • http://www.stupidnoobs.com SuperHoodie is a Hoodlum

    Ok, guys, at this point ANYONE could come back. Nathan would have to break out of a Nevada state pen. Simon undoubtedly will use what he knows to try to correct the mistakes of his past-future self. Doubt he’d really let himself be killed again. And if he doesn’t die, then the advent of two super-hoodies would allow for one to stay in the shadows until he can pop up and stop psycho-ghost bitch from cutting Elisha. I think series 4 needs to setup our new characters, and lead up to a full-enesmble, ragnarock/armageddon scenero in which Nathan, Finn, Elisha, Kurtis, Rudy, Rudy, Kelly, Simon, Super-Hoodie (remember, in my time line there are two Simons), Jess, Seth, and Alex all combat some kind of super-foe…perhaps evil incarnations of themselves? IDK.

  • ant

    ok for those who dont get it, in between seasons 2 and 3 everyone went to vegas. thats where nathen stays with his girlfriend. it was a 3 month gap i believe. he can still return, but for simon and alisha, i doubt it

  • gussy

    pretty sure Simon and Alesha HAVE to come back because they never went to vegas… and if they dont go to vegas they cant get the picture that future simon gives Alisha

    Are you kidding? “All the good characters are gone”? Kelly is a FUCKIN ROCKET SCIENTIST. She defeated the Nazis! She’s been an all around bad ass bitch for 3 seasons. No respect. Though it would be nice if they could find a way to make Curtis compelling again.

    • Krissy

      Sorry to be a buzz kill.. but she’s gone too now :(

  • http://pixel8ed-imagination.tumblr.com/ iwantmoreMISFITS

    i just realized .. in the timeline — theyve been to vegas

    but all the time when simon and alisha were dating .. they havent been to VEGAS and on the season finale — he gone back to to the LOOP again .. and still no vegas trip

    so if they were in a loop …. when did they took the pic ?? or i missed an episode –??

  • http://cc Raconteur

    What about Simon’s immunity against other superheroes powers? Doesnt the fact that that came along right at the end of series 3 indicate that he will make a return (after series 4)?

  • Zanthamos

    Simon and Alisha cannot come back, Simon created a paradox by going through time thus the question “will he just keep going back and making her fall in love just to go back again?” is really an accurate assessment. Here’s the deal, if he changed things to prevent Alisha’s death then he wouldn’t go back, he doesn’t go back he doesn’t change something to prevent Alisha’s death. It is simple paradoxical thinking. Besides, ole powers dealer said there was only one time warp power left that he knew of and it was a one way trip.

    They can’t bring back nathan because they’ve already replaced him with rudy, we cant have two comic relief characters they would clash

  • http://YourWebsite Christos

    AMAZING SERIES. One of the best shows I have ever seen. Cant wait til series 4. Hopefully the episode count per series keeps getting bigger. 6 wasnt nearly enough. 8 was better. How about 12 for series 4.

  • http://YourWebsite Jennifer

    I think the show will be just fine. It’s pretty amazing.
    And Kelly is my favorite, anyway.

  • http://www.facebook.com/rlwhit15 rlwhit15

    i hope that rumor of alisha and simon coming back in season 5…..i hate to see them go!

  • http://www.badhaven.com tommy

    @cmone that already happened in the ep when kelly fucks an gorailla

  • Gadget girl

    When did they go to Las Vegas?!?!?!?

  • http://YourWebsite Zakray

    So I guess they never went to Vegas how so does that all fill in with the continuity of the story….?

  • http://www.wnmlive.com/live-stream gijoe

    So it would be awesome to see nick come back but i dont see simon going back in time knowing what is going to happen and not warning her about her future death or hatleast not setting up some way of saving her in the future there is a lot of loose ends and millions of possibilitys so dont fret everything will turn out

  • http://www.badhaven.com/tv/tv-news/misfits-season-4-wont-see-the-return-of-simon-and-alisha/ Cmone

    I want to see the black guy become a super hero like he visioned in the beginning.

    • lizardinca

      That all happened already. When they were at the costume party….season 1 maybe?

  • http://fick.com Fick

    Your spoiler alert is pointless, shithead. The body content still shows up in Google. Fuck head.

    • Bad Man

      Thanks for letting us know Fick, but for the past few months now hundreds of thousands of people have viewed this post, & thus far you’ve been the only one to throw your toys out of the pram like a Cro Magnon mouth breather & complain. So I’ll take it that no one else really minded, as thousands against one are pretty good odds. Also, if it makes you feel any better, this particular bit of news is months old, so it hasn’t been a spoiler for quite a while. But for all your most up to date news & reviews, why not stop by BAD HAVEN. We promise we’ll caption stuff properly next time….possibly ;D

    • Dan Murray

      Weirdly, I thought the fact that both characters were dead by the end of season 3 and neither were “Immortal” was abit of an indication they wouldn’t be back in itself….. but that might just be me using that stupid common sense again.

  • http://YourWebsite hank

    I live in Las Vegas an I heard they’re shooting some of season 5 on the strip, and simon was seen fighting an unknown character in front of the Belliago fountains, I’m crossing my fingers that rumor is true.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.mcelroy Jonathan McElroy

    I watched every episode in a day and a half, now I’m really bummed out to find out about Simon and Alisha. We just don’t have great shows like this in the states so when I do find one, I get so drawn in. Now the downward spiral to that, waiting for season 4 and searching the net for the release date!

    • http://www.facebook.com/robin.lynn.5661 Robin Lynn

      Me too! Here in the US they are just beginning to show season 1! Wondering when I will get to see season 4??

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000204214169 Carmen Ortiz

      Hulu showed all three seasons and is now showing 4.

  • http://YourWebsite Stoner

    Sheehan should really come back! It would be epic having him and Gilgun in one episode, hopefully a whole season!

  • MissJAy

    I Like jay_johnson ‘s idea. I think that is completely true. The structure of this show could bring just about anyone back and still make it awesome just like the final ep in season 3. Anything can happen.

  • JKer

    You know it would be cool as a cheese to adopt some French characters and make the scenery international on both fronts. But all in all, if you want the lover birds back on the game then just get someone to have the destiny determining artist ability and let s/he draw out the cartoon to your fancy.

  • http://YourWebsite stopcrying

    Com’on, Rudy is freakin hilarious…. get 2 more Rudy’s and I’ll watch it.. I’ll watch regardless… but that dude is funny as hell.Your Comments

  • http://YourWebsite bigballscaller

    Robert Sheehan and Joseph Gilgun! To awesome! That’s the ultimate episode

  • http://o0helln0o.tumblr.com Ashley

    this sucks because i just fount out about misfit, watched season 1,2&3 in about a week with my boyfriend, we dont know what to do now.! all our fav character are gone and now we feel its gunna be totally off if they dont AT LEAST bring back robert sheehan.

    • Bad Man

      Everybody loves that Sheehan. But Sheehan loves the big screen :/

  • https://twitter.com/#!/TheRev0lution RevVince

    I was worried when Robert Sheehan left the show, but i was happy with the addition of Joseph Gilgun. Now that Simon and Alicia are leaving I think I have enough confidence in the writers to believe that they will continue to make a great show without them. Their story came to a tragic, but satisfactory ending and I am ready to move on to the next adventure.

    keep dreaming sucker

  • http://www.google.com jay_johnson


    don’t get too wrapped around the axle. REMEMBER THIS: There’s a power broker (seth) in the midst. If the series starts getting lame, someone could always go back into time to the point were someone could go back in time and either a) stop the “loop” where Simone goes back after Alisha’s death or b) stop Alisha from dying at all. Based on the show’s structure, you can bring “any” of the character’s back at any time. Just because you don’t have the power to “snap” your fingers or “blink” your eyes to time travel doesn’t necessarily mean Kelly (rocket scientist) can’t build a “time machine” if she truly needed to. Who knows, maybe the poer of “super speed” may show up and someone can “run” fast enough to go through time.

    No one is truly gone from the show unless the writers really want them gone :-)

  • http://MISFITS DAVID

    What the hell.
    Stop killing off the best character’s. I want to know iff the writer’s are killing them off or iff there just leaving.
    The only way this show will servive is if that Robert Sheehan come’s back.
    Why did Iwan Rheon and Antonia Thomas go. I am a massive fan of there’s I want to no what else they’ve been in.
    However Iwan Rheon and Antonia Thomas have left…
    So the only way to keep the show going is to get Robert Sheeha back. You know only have three of the original character’s.

    • Bad Man

      I think Misfits is trying to be progressive, at least in the sense of keeping it edgy and killing characters. And I’d love to see Robert Sheehan come back. He has been missed

  • http://www.twitter.com/glysiateresa Izzy

    lame, so much for Misfits. Took away all the awesome characters. Won’t survive without at least Simon (Iwan) and Alisha (Antonia). Bad enough to lose Robert Sheehan from the cast.

  • http://girlingreyshirt.tumblr.com Girlingreyshirt

    And what about Robert Sheehan ?
    Will he be in the 4. season?

    • Bad Man

      It’s looking doubtful since his new found fame on the bigger screen :/
