BBC America has made the announcement today that they have picked up the UK version off Being Human for a fifth season. The series comes from writer and creator Toby Whithouse who is known for his work with ‘Dr. Who’ and ‘Torchwood’. The supernatural show has garnered much success with its storyline involving the pairing of a vampire, and werewolf, and a ghost.
Richard De Croce, BBC America’s SVP of Programming, referred to the series as “a staple of BBC America’s Supernatural Saturday programming block. We’re excited to present the series’ loyal fans with a fifth season and to continue working with the series’ cast and extraordinarily talented creator Toby Whithouse, who clearly is fast becoming one of the biggest names in sci-fi television.”
Meanwhile, Toby Whithouse, who won’t reveal much about what’s to come for the characters on the show, did divulge a little extra information for fans. The creator stated that werewolf Tom (played by Michael Socha) and vampire Hal (played by Damien Molony) will be returning to the show. “‘Being Human’ lives on! The response to series 4 has been terrific. We’re thrilled that the audience have taken the new cast into their hearts with such enthusiasm and affection. We’re delighted to have this opportunity to expand the world further and explore new characters and tell new stories. A heartfelt thank you to all the fans for their unstinting support, and to the BBC for letting us mess up the sandpit for a fifth year.”
