‘Misfits’ creator discusses Series 2 cliffhanger plan

Posted Filed under

Overman told SFX: “The aim was to make people feel ‘Oh my God, I’ve got to know what happens next!’”

He continued: “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.”

The third series off Misfits will air on E4 later this year.

The new SFX ‘Best Of British’ special is out in shops now.
