Being Human (North American) Renewed for Season 4
Josh (Sam Huntington) and Nora (Kristen Hager) in Being Human) North American S3 Ep 9 Of Mice and Wolfmen
I'm very excited to share the news that Being Human (North American) has indeed been renewed for a fourth season, which will air in 2014 with 13 episodes. This news came out just after the Season 3 finale aired last week, and I had a moment of worry when it wasn't out *before* the finale.
Hexed has been following Being Human (North American) since it's very first episode back in 2011. Although we've had our ups and downs on the show and the continual comparison to it's based-on predecessor Being Human UK, it still keeps us coming back for more with new interpretations, characters and story lines that set it apart.
Want more details? Here is more from the media release: "NEW YORK – April 10, 2013 – Syfy is ordering a fourth season (13 episodes) of its hit drama series Being Human, it was announced today by Mark Stern, President of Original Content, Syfy and Co-Head of Original Content, Universal Cable Productions. The announcement comes on the heels of the Season 3 finale which aired Monday, April 8 and in time for Syfy’s Upfront presentation this evening in New York City.
Being Human stars Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington and Kristen Hager as vampire Aidan, ghost Sally and werewolves Josh and Nora. Together they struggle to suppress their supernatural secrets and temptations and live their lives as close to normal as possible.
“‘Being Human’ really hit its stride creatively this year,” said Mark Stern. “This show has become a signature series for Syfy and we are thrilled to have it return in 2014.”
Being Human has been an all-around performer for Syfy both on-air and via digital distribution as well as in the social media space. It remains one of Syfy’s youngest and most female-skewing scripted dramas.
Inclusive of Live +7 data, Season 3 of Being Human is averaging 1.8 million total viewers, including 1.1 million Adults 18-49 and 1.1 million Adults 25-54, and is a top ten cable program in its time period among both key demos.
Being Human is a Muse Entertainment production and is based on the acclaimed series created by Toby Whithouse and produced by Touchpaper. Executive producers are Michael Prupas (The Kennedys, Pillars of the Earth), Anna Fricke (Men in Trees, Everwood) who is both writer and showrunner, and Rob Pursey and Toby Whithouse. Irene Litinsky (Human Trafficking, The Phantom) is series producer."
I know I'll be back for more supernatural roommates in action in 2014!
