Following up Misfits creator Howard Overman’s reveal late last year that he was writing a feature length follow-up for Simon (Iwan Rheon) and Alisia (Antonia Thomas), star Rheon told Digital Spy he would be on it like a shot.

“I think I’d be an idiot not to [do it],” said Rheon.

“I think it’d be a really fun thing to go back and revisit, because obviously I feel so much love for Misfits and gratitude to them and those guys at [production company] Clerkenwell Films and E4, and how they gave me such a huge opportunity and gave me a lot of really challenging stuff to do while I was there.

“So yeah, if I get the opportunity, I’d love to.

“In a way, I do still feel like it never really got finished. I thought the Simon storyline in the third series was quite rushed, and you didn’t really get to see enough of it for various reasons.”

Although the logistical issues with getting everyone together are immense, Rheon is optimistic.

“I think it might happen. I think it’s quite likely that it will happen, yeah, if they can get everyone together to do it.”
