I have added screencaps from his last appearance in Misfits and here is also a video.
Ok Misfits fans, as you probably know, Misfits returns to E4 in October with some changes. Robert Sheehan is leaving and Joe Gilgun is joining the gang. And to say farewell to Nathan and hearty hello to Joe we’ve got an exclusive film coming right here to E4.com.
The film focusses on Nathan, who – armed with a new superpower – has got a plan to go out in style. His target? Las Vegas, baby!
With Marnie and little Nathan Jnr. still in the picture, Nathan is plotting to use his new superpower to scam the casinos. It’s a sure-fire plan that can’t fail. Except it will, of course.
Vegas Baby! will premiere right here on E4.com/misfits on Thursday 15 September.
Excited? No, I don’t want him to leave.
Added another and replaced with HQ.
Hulu: Can you compare “Misfits” to a show that’s airing in the US?
Robert Sheehan: Well, it’s very much like “Grey’s Anatomy” in the sense that we all wear one color. Yeah, I think that’s the closest show on American TV, because of the color thing.
Well, let me try to skim American TV. I guess it would be an American “Skins,” which has 16-or-17-year-old kids behaving like 16-or-17-year-old kids.
That’s funny that you say that, because MTV recently tried out this show over here. It got canceled primarily because it showed underage drinking.
Oh, I forget that Americans can’t drink until they’re much older. But you all can drive much earlier, can’t you?
Yep. Everybody here is given a Chevy, a gun, and a driver’s license when they turn three.
That’s interesting. I suppose I agree that anybody can get behind the wheel. But not everybody has good aim.
Congratulations on being nominated for a BAFTA!
“Oh stop! Let’s leave it there, that’s good. Thank you, thank you very much.”
How does it feel?
“It feels very, very tingly. The tingle starts very much near the ankles and works its way up into the kneecaps and then slowly but surely towards the crown jewels and then up into the brain. That’s usually how thoughts work in my body anyway – they go the opposite way.”
If you’re feeling like that now, how will you feel at the ceremony?
“Oh God. You know the way they say a pig can orgasm for half an hour? That’s probably going to be me on the red carpet, writhing around, just causing havoc. Causing a scene down there on Park Lane or wherever it is.”
How are you rating your chances – do you think you’ve got it in the bag?
“Very much I will have it in a bag at one point, because I’m going to steal it even if I don’t win it. No, I honestly don’t care if I win. A nomination is lovely, and that sounds like a big fat cliché but it’s true. When you hear news of the nomination, it feels like a victory in itself, so I’m happy with that. If I win it’ll be a nice bonus for the evening, you know? But we’re all together – we’re one big Misfits collaboration.”
I for one won’t be watching the third series.
If you’re a Misfits fan you might want to sit down before you read this latest piece of news… Nathan, the funniest and fittest Misfit, won’t appear in a new online film or the upcoming third series. Nooooooo. We think E4 needs to set up a special helpline for distraught fans. Or at least send us a signed photo of Robert Sheehan to make us feel better.
Obviously we’re very happy that the ace, darkly comic drama is coming back to our screens but it won’t be the same without Nathan. A special online edition of Misfits is being filmed that will introduce a new character called Rudy to the group of superheroes, and it will also explain the demise of Nathan. Sob! In the film, the gang will travel to Las Vegas, a trip that will end in disaster for Nathan. Double sob!
The show’s creator Howard Overman commented, “It’s great to be launching the third series of Misfits with an online film which introduces our new character Rudy, as well as saying goodbye to Nathan.”
While Channel 4’s drama commissioning editor Robert Wulff-Cochrane said, ” We’re all very excited about the return for a third series, as well as kicking off with a groundbreaking online film. Howard Overman has created some more brilliantly surprising and original storylines and fans can rest assured that series three will begin in a way no-one else could possibly imagine.”
We just hope this Rudy character is just as brilliant as Nathan.
As if my day couldn’t get any worse! I can’t believe this!
Robert Sheehan will not be returning for the third series of Misfits.
The show’s executive producer Petra Fried announced the news at the Kapow convention in London today.
Sheehan’s character Nathan, who has appeared in the show since it began in 2009, will now be replaced by a new character called Rudi.
Casting for Rudi is still ongoing. Nathan’s departure and Rudi’s arrival are expected to be dealt with in short films posted on the E4 website before the third series begins.
Sheehan can currently be seen in the movie Killing Bono and also worked on the film Season Of The Witch, which was released earlier this year.

After one of the greatest cliffhangers on TV ever in its Christmas special, the phenomenon that is E4’s Misfits became one of the most talked about show ever on the SFX forum. Everybody wants to know, what happens next. In an all-new interview in the new SFX special, Best Of British (in shops today), creator/writer Howard Overman reveals some tantalising titbits about series three. Here’s a little taster:
Overman does tell us it’s likely he won’t be writing all of series three’s eight episodes; no surprise considering he’s quickly becoming one of British sci-fi’s most in-demand writers with a regular gig on Merlin and the return of the Douglas Adams adaptation Dirk Gently (yes, it’ll be coming back!).
First on the agenda: that jaw-dropping series finale. “The aim was to make people feel ‘Oh my God, I’ve got to know what happens next!’ American shows like Lost are prepared to end their series’ on huge, game-changing cliffhangers, which make the audience desperate for the new series. Too often on British TV we tie things up in a neat package, because quite often you don’t know whether you’re getting another series before you finish filming, but we were lucky that Channel Four had already commissioned the third series while I was writing the second.
“They’re all going to have brand new powers. Nobody will have the same powers as in the second series,” Overman reveals.
You can already pre order the Misfits series 3 dvd here, its out on the 26th of December.
I have added a poster from Suicide Kids and Misfits won “Breakout of the year” at the SFX Awards.
