What do a ghost, a werewolf and a vampire have in common? If you guessed a nice home in Bristol, you might be a fan of BBC Three's horror/drama series Being Human. For those genuinely terrified about the SyFy channel remake set to air this summer rest assured that a third season of the popular show has been approved by the network.
As Sci-Fi Wire reports, all three principal cast members - Aidan Turner, Russell Tovey and Lenora Crichlow are all signed on for the third season to reprise their roles as a vampire, werewolf and a ghost all sharing a flat in Bristol and attempting to lead normal lives. The third season, however, will see them change locations, moving from their home in Bristol to Wales following the climax of the second season, which is set to air this February.
Being Human's unique approach toward horror mythology has proven to be extremely popular, with the start of the second season seeing approximately 1.4 million viewers. Citing the creativity and excellent writing of the show, Ben Stephenson, Controller Drama Commissioning for the BBC had this to say about the show's third season and writer Toby Whithouse:
"BBC Three drama is all about allowing the singular imagination of a writer the room to flourish, and Toby's extraordinary creation of an emotionally rooted yet mythic world personifies this completely. I can't wait to see where Toby and Touchpaper Television's imaginations will take the story over another eight episodes."
Rob Pursey, the Executive Producer of Touchpaper Television has stated that season three will feature "startling new storylines and characters," and that plenty of online content will be made available between the two seasons.
The third season of Being Human will be produced by Phil Trethowan, with Rob Pursey and Beth Willis of BBC Wales serving as Executive Producers.
