Series 2 of Misfits originally aired on E4 from 11 November - 19 December 2010. It was released on DVD and Blu-ray on 27 December 2010, including all seven episodes.
Channel 4's head of drama Camilla Campbell confirmed, after the last episode of Series 1 was shown on 17 December 2009, that a second series has been commissioned for 2010. The events of Series 2 commence immediately after the end of Series 1.
It was also confirmed that filming took place in May 2010 by the cast themselves on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross.
A freak storm left our posse of social outcasts with super powers; Curtis can turn back time, Kelly can read minds, Simon can turn invisible and Alisha can send people into a sexual frenzy with just one touch. Then there's their two dead probation workers (one is buried under the local environmental monitoring station; the other stored in a freezer in the community centre). And finally, unbeknownst to the others, Nathan is trapped six feet under in a coffin, immortal and very much alive.
But it's not just the ASBO Five who were affected by the storm. With the super-charged local townsfolk going the way of Gotham City, this series sees our gang faced with a whole new world of weird and wild characters. And who is the masked, hooded stranger who seems to be watching their every move?

On 9 December, 2011, Misfits creator Howard Overman talked about an abandoned story idea in an interview with GQ Magazine:
"What was the best idea that never made it on screen?"
"There was one Misfits script which I wrote that was set in an alternative reality where [the cast] were all the opposites of their characters: Simon was a real ladies' man and Nathan had taken his place as a real geek. It didn't work because people tune in to see recognizable characters and I think they know who they want to see. So we ditched it."
- This is the only series with an odd number of episodes.
