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?
