Remaining fans of Being Human can breathe a sigh of relief, the show has been confirmed for a fifth season.
The season four finale aired in the UK last weekend and before the dust can settle creator Toby Whithouse has confirmed that the show will return for a fifth season, and both Damien Molony (Hal) and Michael Socha (Tom) will be returning. It seems quite clear that new face Kate Bracken (Alex) will be making up the supernatural trio when the show returns in 2013.
Following the departure of most of the main cast members either at the end of season three, between seasons, or the beginning of season four, Whithouse had his work cut out for him keeping fans happy and making the show work with a new cast. The conformation of season five is clear proof that he succeeded, and confident that he can continue to move things forward after the more current changes.
“Being Human lives on! The response to series 4 has been terrific.” Whithouse said in his statement.
“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.”
