‘Being Human’ canceled by BBC
Only a week after its fifth season premiere, and a month after the season premiere of its US counterpart, BBC has lowered the ax on “Being Human”.
The BBC has announced that the supernatural thriller will come to an “apocalyptic end” with this year’s finale, as the three leads — Damien Molony as Hal (the vampire), Michael Socha as Tom (the werewolf) and Kate Bracken as Alex (the ghost) — go toe-to-toe with the Devil himself.
In a statement, Executive producer Rob Pursey said, “Working on ‘Being Human’ has been a truly great experience. From the first one-hour pilot, all the way through to this climactic series, we’ve been given real creative freedom and encouragement. It’s a credit to BBC Three that such an unusual idea has been allowed to flourish and evolve in its own unique way.”
Series creator Toby Whithouse took to the official “Being Human” blog to discuss the finale: “We’ve created what I hope you’ll agree is an epic, thrilling and shocking finale that’ll keep the fans guessing and speculating for years to come.”
