Robert Sheehan Not Returning for 3rd Season of ‘Misfits’

So last week we told you about a totally badass British show called Misfits. And obviously when I say we, I mean guest writer Patrick Hermesmeyer. And upon his suggestion, I sought out and watched both existing seasons and the Christmas special (Totaling 13 episodes in all), and I have to be honest: Never have I so quickly fallen in love with a show.

Now, just as I get attached to the show, I start surfing the web to find out that Robert Sheehan is leaving the show. Sheehan plays my favorite character on the show – Nathan, the motormouth a-hole who is often at the center of the show’s most comedic moments…

This comes from an April 11th Article over at Den of Geek:

It was revealed last night amongst the many stories emerging from Kapow! Comic Con in London that Robert Sheehan will be leaving the BAFTA-winning Misfits. The news was confirmed by the show’s producer, Petra Fried, who said that the character Nathan would not be returning for series three. Arguably the show’s most popular character, Nathan is to make his exit via an online short that will also introduce new character, Rudy.

Now, as mentioned above, it’s unclear how this will affect the future of the show, but Misfits will move forward and we’ll just have to see how Nathan’s replacement – Rudy – will work out. I hope they don’t try to make him like Nathan, as a copy of the character would only mark failure and likely alienate fans.

Once the ‘Online Farewell’ episode airs we’ll be sure to let everyone know. No release date has been announced thus far…
