Just four episodes into season two of Syfy Channelâ€™s â€œoriginalâ€ series Being Human the network has renewed the series for a third season of 13 episodes.
Viewership for the second season has increased by an impressive +27% in Adults 18-49, +35% in Adults 25-54, and +15% in total viewers; 52% of the viewers are female making Being Human the most female skewing series ever on the network.
The season two premiere brought in a total of 2.4 million viewers which is up 3% from the season one premiere. So yes the show is a hit on the network so no shocker that they are bringing it back. I put the word original in quotes because technically the show is a remake of a British series. Of course this version does deviate a good bit from the original.
â€œWith the success of season two, â€˜Being Humanâ€™ has become a premiere destination for Syfy viewers,â€ said Mark Stern President of Original Content, Syfy and Co-Head of Original Content, Universal Cable Productions. â€œJeremy Carver and Anna Fricke (producers) have taken this series to new heights this year and weâ€™re excited to see where the third season will go.â€
Being Human stars Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, and Sam Huntington as vampire Aidan, ghost Sally, and werewolf Josh, respectively, who share a home in a Boston brownstone. Together the three roommates struggle to keep their secrets and fight individual temptations as they strive to exist as normal humans.
