Gossip Girl Creator Remakes SciFi Series Misfits For The States!

| Filed under: TV NewsGossip Girl

Misfits United States Josh Schwartz

Josh Schwartz is one busy man! While the upper east siders are busy bashing Lonely Boy, their creator has been working on a new series to storm the states.

Born in the UK, Misfits is about of group of kids doing community service in London when all of a sudden an electrical storm hits them. They survive, but with….dum dum dummmm….super powers! KA-PLOW!

And even though the US remake of Skins didn't do so well, tv minds are thinking Misfits has a way better chance.

Yeah, we'll give it a shot. We love science fiction!

    fuck this! american tv will never be as good as it is across the pond



  2. 2

    Why!? American producers no longer hace original ideas and they have to reake EVERYTHING. Leave Misfits alone, the show is amazing by itself why not promote it more on the states? No, they have to crap all over it, just like they did with skins



  3. 3

    NOOOOOO!!!!!! They should just show it in the US, NOT remake it.



  4. 4

    NOOOOO!!! I love this show and the US is going to ruin it!!



  5. 5

    NOOOO!!! that makes me so angry!>:O i love this show as it is and the us will just ruin it and make it less funny. they really need to start coming up with original shows instead of stealing it all from england.



  6. 6

    NONONONONONOONONNOOON I LITERALLY SCREAMED NOOOOOO. this is my favorite show ever!!!

    no one can do a better nathan than robert sheehan! PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD NO



  7. 7

    I dont care if they remake a tv show. But the misfits is horrible.



  8. 8

    if they put it on HBO or a channel that they don't CENSOR everything, it may have potential, but if they put it on MTV or CW, it's going to be Skins US all over again.



  9. 9

    I wish I could Stop this remake. They might as well just take a shit on live tv, they won't be able to translate the humor of this show because everyone is so uptight about what is said on us television



  10. 10

    this is so not a UK "original" in the early 80's there was a show call Misfits of Science with same basic premise.



  11. 11

    Oh my GOD. Get your own shows! British and American humour/entertainment are totally different. American The Office was shit. American Skins was shit. GIVE IT UP!!!



  12. 12

    Ugggh, for god's sake
    Leave.
    Our.
    Programmes.
    Alone.

    Ok, Misfits is pretty much a perfect show, but it's not going to work even remotely in the US because certain aspects of the culture of it just aren't going to transfer, and it would only have the slightest chance of surviving if it can be on HBO or something that won't censor EVERY FUCKING THING.
    I mean, The Office remake only worked because it was an easy structure and both the comedy and the characters were able to develop on their own to better suit US audiences, but I think it's too risky with this show.
    I would much rather them just start airing the UK version over here.



  14. 14

    Unless its on HBO or something, they won't be able to come close to living up to the standards of the original version.



  15. 15

    lol! if Gossip Girl is any indication of how this show will go, i'm not watching it. The British one is simply too amazing. NO ONE CAN DO NATHAN!



  16. 16

    hell no. the only way I'm watching it is if Robert Sheehan is in it. otherwise, fuck.no.



  17. 17

    the only good uk-to-us remake was the office.



  18. 18

    What is it with the US and remaking movies and tv-series, even if they're already in English? Is it that hard to relate to any other culture than your own? If reading subtitles is bothersome, fine, but changing English to English because it seemingly has to be strictly "American"? Moronic. I'm not even talking about the US citizens, but those who actually make these decisions.



  19. 19

    Re: purplecrayon – I agree, this specific show was a great move, they really made it their own.



  20. 20

    Why oh why!?! Haven't the Yanks learned anything from the disaster that was 'Skins'?!
    'Misfits' is British teen perfection - don't try and fix what isn't broken.



  21. 21

    NO! They are gona ruin this remake just like the Skins remake!



  22. 22

    Please don't. I love this show and…Just please don't. This show wasn't meant for network TV just like Skins wasn't. I could maybe tolerate it on SyFy seeing as how they did a pretty good job on Being Human. Whatever happen to originality?



  23. 23

    WTF!
    first skins, then the inbetweeners, now misfits! seriously america, get original!
    When will people understand that some things just can't be adapted?
    Why can't you just support something that isn't american for a change and accept that sometimes people are better than you?!



  24. 24

    NO! I don't understand why everything has to be remade for American audiences, we don't remake the Big Bang Theory or anything!



  25. 25

    I love the original Misfits. Maybe there's a chance that they can make it work here in the States, but they're going to do it differently than MTV did Skins. I think they should keep the original concept, but come up with completely new characters.



  26. 26

    Re: rawrrrrrrr – We can. Lots of us watch the originals and love them, and then refuse to watch the U.S. remakes. that's why almost all of the remakes wind up canceled. Unfortunately the TV producers over here have superiorty complexes.



  27. 27

    Re: Vagina Dentata – You have the best screen name.



  28. 28

    oh fuck no, it will be like skins, all the parents will kick off about how it's too sexual or something shit like that, america's too prudish to appreciate an awesome tv series like misfits. plus, you can't beat the original

    MisFits is an amazing show and the USA is about to ruin it. Seriously if the UK can't find someone to replace Robert Sheehan for the third season where the hell are they going to find someone to play Nathan in america ??? Leave my favorite UK TV dhow alone!



  30. 30

    Is nothing sacred?! The only way it could work would be on HBO or something and NOT just copying the same characters but maybe focussing on people in America affected by the same storm or something. I won't hold my breath for something decent…



  31. 31

    I AM SO ANGRY. FUCK american tv shows. there is NO way this will ever compare to the wonderfulness that is the ONLY Misfits worth having around.

    This is honestly the worst idea ever. The whole attraction of misfits is the British accents, the British feel to it and the dark humor that the US will never be able to re-create. The actors in UK shows like Misfits seem so natural when their acting, but in the US you can just see them acting and it's horrible. Why can't America just watch the UK version? Can't they fucking handle watching something that isn't their own culture?
