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.

This is a good show, there are only few good shows on cable and when there are they usually get canceled. Tv networks need to go off netflix and itunes streaming siteds for ratings no one watches tv ne more excemption is sporting events. Stop force feeding us lost csi and 24 just recycled 100 times over.
Being human has a great story i just hope they get a chance to tell it before an axe is dropped. I would rather watch two monkeys having sex than watch terra nova

i see one big blooper on 'being human'. that is, the ghost cant touch or grab anything, but she can sit on the couch, sit on the kitchen counter, and not fall through.she can go up and down the stairs grabing the hand rail and holding on to the main post to make the turn on the stairs. she doesnt pass throught the stairs or floors either. but if she tries to grab a cup,glass,door knob,or beer, her hand goes through.big blooper.
i'd like to see the werewolf turn into a more of a wolfman and not a dog,and be able to control the changes when ever and not make it painful. after all you have a vampire in the day light, fire dosnt bother him, and dosent need his native soil,
