'Misfits' on Logo: UK sci-fi favorite set to air in the US
The show, about a group of delinquents who suddenly acquire some wacky, weird super powers, has long been a Hulu hit for fans in the States. We thought the show might be too dark -- and too dirty -- for American audiences, so we're thrilled that Logo has found a way to air it.
The first season will begin on Logo on July 19 at 10 p.m. EST, with the subsequent three seasons following it in the coming months.
"We're proud to introduce the U.S. television audience to this beloved series, which is like the mutant offspring of 'True Blood' and 'X-Men,'" said Marc Leonard, Logo's Senior Vice President of Multiplatform Programming, in a statement. "'Misfits' is the perfect series for our Logo viewers who will appreciate how the show's underdogs rise up, take center stage and start blurring the lines of morality, sexuality, gender and reality itself."
The troubled youths' powers include turning back time, inspiring violent sexual frenzies in others, and even mind-reading -- all of which are sure to set some serious hijinks in motion. We highly recommend you tune in to this one. It's sort of the anti-"Downton Abbey."
