It’s a familiar story: A group of outsiders with special powers bands together under adverse circumstances. Only the British series Misfits is not your mother’s Avengers. Sub in orange jumpsuits for spandex and the power to drive people to sexual frenzy for the Hulk smash, and you’ve got this BAFTA-winning crossover hit.

EW can exclusively reveal that Logo will be first to televise Misfits in America. Dubbing the series “the mutant offspring of True Blood and X-Men,” the network will roll out the six-episode first season starting July 19. Below, get your first glimpse of the Misfits and a video teaser of the first season.

Misfits star Joseph Gilgun has praised his new co-stars in the show's fourth series.

Speaking to Digital Spy at the recent Arqiva British Academy Television Awards Nominations party, Gilgun confirmed that filming had begun on new episodes of the E4 drama.

"It's pretty intense, but... we always get some good stuff," Gilgun said. "It's very funny."

The new series of Misfits will introduce three new regular characters following the departures of Lauren Socha (Kelly), Iwan Rheon (Simon) and Antonia Thomas (Alisha).

"It's been an absolute joy," said Gilgun. "They really are lovely, lovely people. You can see they're a bit wide-eyed - I remember feeling like they feel. I know how it feels to be the newbie."

Gilgun also admitted that it felt "extraordinary" to receive a BAFTA nomination for his role as Woody in Channel 4's This Is England '88.

"It is the most unbelievable feeling," the 28-year-old revealed. "As an actor, it doesn't get much better."

The BAFTA Television Awards 2012 take place at the Royal Festival Hall at London's South Bank center on Sunday, May 27.

Joe Gilgun has joined the cast of BBC One thriller Ripper Street.

The Misfits star told SFX that he has won a "guest lead part" in the period drama.

"I'm shooting in Dublin," Gilgun confirmed. "[It's] f**king so ace, I can't even tell you, I've grown a mustache and everything. It's epic, it's grown over my lip and I can curl it. I look like Charles Bronson after a famine."

The actor added that he is "bloody thrilled" to have won a role in the eight-part series, which stars Matthew Macfadyen.

"It's set in the time of Jack the Ripper," he said. "It's a guest lead part so I'm bloody thrilled with it. It's just such a bloody great job."

Set in 1899 London, Ripper Street will focus on H Division, the notorious police precinct charged with keeping order in Whitechapel.

Jerome Flynn (Game of Thrones), Adam Rothenberg (Alcatraz) and MyAnna Buring (Twilight) will also star in the project, written by Mistresses scribe Richard Warlow.

Shooting on Ripper Street is expected to conclude in July. The series will air on BBC One in the UK and on BBC America in the US.


Matthew Macfadyen OMG. Yes please!
