SyFy Renews 'Being Human' for Season 2

'Being Human'SyFy has announced that it is renewing supernatural drama 'Being Human' for a second season.

In a statement, Mark Stern, SyFy President of Original Content, said the series "has proven to be a winner for Syfy on all fronts. ... Showrunners/writers Jeremy Carver and Anna Fricke -- along with a superlative team of writers, cast, and production -- have created an amazing, compelling series in its own right. We can't wait to watch Aidan, Josh and Sally continue their struggle to be human in the second season!"

Based on the hit British series of the same name, 'Being Human' is Syfy's most successful winter season scripted series launch in six years. It's also the channel's most female-skewing scripted series ever.

The drama follows the trials and tribulations of three friends sharing a brownstone (and plenty of secrets) in Boston. Their lives are made more complicated than most because one's a vampire, one's a werewolf and one's a ghost.

'Being Human' launched on SyFy back in January, and it stars Sam Witwer ('Smallville'), Meaghan Rath ('18 to Life'), Sam Huntington ('Cavemen') and Mark Pellegrino ('Lost'). Although it's gained good ratings, it does face some competition for viewers from the original version.

The third season of the British 'Being Human' is currently airing on BBC America, and it was announced earlier this week that it's been renewed for Season 4.
