Apparently this was a fairly easy decision for the network given the second season of Being Human‘s increase in viewership over season 1. According to Syfy, season 2 is up 27% in Adults 18-49, +35% in Adults 25-54 and +15% in total viewers. As with season 1, season 2 viewers are 52% women making it Syfy’s “most female-skewing scripted series ever.”
Mark Stern, President of Original Content, Syfy and Co-Head of Original Content, Universal Cable Productions, announced the renewal, stating, “With the success of season two, Being Human has become a premier destination for Syfy viewers. Jeremy Carver and Anna Fricke have taken this series to new heights this year and we’re excited to see where the third season will go.”
Being Human stars Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath and Sam Huntington as vampire Aidan, ghost Sally and werewolf Josh who share the creature comforts of home in a Boston brownstone. Together the three roommates struggle to keep their supernatural secrets and resist individual temptations as they strive to live lives that are as near to normal as possible.
