Syfy is calling time on the US adaptation of Being Human. The network has announced that the current season of the Muse Entertainment produced drama will be its last, with the series finale set to air on Monday April 7th.
“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”, the network 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.”
The cancellation of the US adaptation comes more than a year after BBC Three also pulled the plug on the original series, which was created by Toby Whithouse. It also comes at a time of change at Syfy with network topper Mark Stern recently exiting and being replaced by Bill McGoldrick. Syfy, who recently renewed Haven for a supersized 26 episode fifth season, are looking to get back to “harder sci-fi” with plans to have up to six scripted series on air and are also eyeing a return to limited/event series.
