It’s been a mixed week for Misfits fans. Last week the show was confirmed for a fourth series (hurrah!) but earlier this week Antonia Thomas (Alisha) confirmed that she wouldn’t be returning and this morning Iwan Rheon also announced that he would be leaving the show (Boo!).
Rheon – who plays Simon Bellamy – thanked fans for their support and wished the rest of the cast luck with the new series.
“Thanks for all the comments and support,” he said. “I’m so grateful for the opportunity that Misfits gave me and all the fun I had doing it. But I have left now and look forward to doing exciting new things. The show must go on! X”
Robert Sheehan became the first cast member to leave the E4 show last year, but ratings remained healthy and critics and fans alike have praised his replacement Joe Gilgun.
