Tongue-in-cheek superhero series Misfits first aired on Channel 4’s E4 back in 2009. The show quickly gained attention with the show winning two BAFTAs thanks to its hilarious script, strong performances and unique aesthetic. Misfits imagined a group of apathetic teens struck by lighting and granted various superpowers while they were carrying out community service.
Misfits is set in the UK but it’s unclear where exactly the show is supposed to be located given the cast consists of characters who are from Ireland and the north of England rather than just from London or one particular area.
However, most of the action takes place on an estate, which becomes more apparent as the show goes on.
Alisha Daniels (played by Antonia Thomas) is revealed to live in one of the flats on the estate with Superhoodie coming to visit her.
Nikki (Ruth Negga) also lives in one of the flats, which the group mistake for the home of Superhoodie when they try to follow him.

However, Simon Bellamy (Iwan Rheon) and Nathan Young (Robert Sheehan) seemed to live in the suburbs but close to the estate.
The drama takes place in various locations on the estate, most notably at the community centre where the group goes to carry out community service for their anti-social behaviour.
Some of the other settings have included a night club and a bar on the estate where the teens have spent time together.
There’s also one episode featuring an evil white rabbit which the teens have to battle with.
Interestingly, when the show imagined a Nazi dystopian future, the drama was self-contained to the estate.
