US Being Human cancelled after four series

The fantasy drama, based on BBC3's series starring Russell Tovey, Lenora Crichlow and Aidan Turner, has been cancelled by American cable channel Syfy

Being Human is coming to an end. Again.


The American vampire, werewolf and ghost flatshare drama, which was based on the cancelled BBC3 series, is set to end after its fourth season. 

Cable network Syfy, which is owned by NBC Universal, announced mid-way through the show’s current 13-episode run that the series four finale will be the final instalment of the drama. 

“Showrunner Anna Fricke and the talented producers, writers, cast and crew have done an amazing job bringing this show to life over the past four seasons and we sincerely thank them and the series’ production company Muse Entertainment for their hard work,” Syfy said in a statement. “They’ve saved the best for last with the final six episodes that revisit the story’s beginning, leading to a not-to-be-missed send-off for Aidan, Sally, Josh and Nora.”  

Being Human, starring Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington and Kristen Hager, followed a group of supernatural housemates who are trying to live normal lives. The British version, which starred Russell Tovey, Lenora Crichlow and Aidan Turner, ran for five series between 2009 and 2013 before being cancelled. 

Being Human is available on Blinkbox.
