Bloodsucker Hal (Damien Molony), lycanthrope Tom (Michael Socha) and new addition apparition Alex (Kate Bracken) are the first central trio not to include one of the original core members, played by Russell Tovey, Lenora Crichlow and Aidan Turner.
Bracken’s character, Alex the ghost, made an appearance towards the end of the last series as a living human who was subseqeuntly killed by vampire Hal when he returned to his blood-drinking ways.
The first episode finds Hal tied to a chair by his flatmates, being forced to go cold turkey to beat his addiction.
The series will also introduce new villain Captain Hatch, played by Phil Davis and described as “extremely horrible” and “absolutely disgusting”.
