Very sad news for fans of the UK series Misfits … lead actor Robert Sheehan has left the show! According to a new report out this weekend, Sheehan — who plays the BRILLIANT character Nathan — will NOT return for season 3 of the series. Altho no information has been given as to why he is leaving the show, it is being reported that his character will be replaced by a new character altogether. Read on for the sad deets.
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. The third series of Misfits is scheduled to air later this year on E4.
On the advice of a few Pink readers, I watched and I fell IMMEDIATELY in love with Misfits back in January (when I was able to watch the first 2 seasons of the show back-to-back). I think it’s very safe to say that Sheehan‘s character Nathan is not only the main character but he is absolutely the one that provides the most comic relief for the show. Like Skins, Misfits is one of those shows that is so good you can’t get enough … and I really couldn’t get enough of Sheehan on the show. My guess is that he won’t be returning either because he wants to make the transition to film or salary negotiations fell through. As far as I know, the rest of the cast will remain intact but … I’m sorry, the show will not be the same without Robert Sheehan. This is really bummer news. I’m really gonna miss the Nathan character on Misfits.
