BEING HUMAN -- Season:2 -- Pictured: (l-r) Sam Huntington as Josh, Sam Witwer as Aiden, Meaghan Rath as Sally

That was quick! It’s been announced today that the Syfy network, an offshoot of Comcast owned NBC, has put in a renewal order for Being Human, the supernatural drama starring 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.

The new season will also be a 13-episode season, like this present second season is.

These three unique roommates struggle in their day-to-day lives to keep their supernatural secrets and resist individual temptations as they strive to live lives that are as near to normal as possible.

The order comes on the heals of a large TV ratings increase after only 4 episodes of the second season of the show.

“To date, viewership for the second season has increased by an impressive +27% in Adults 18-49, +35% in Adults 25-54 and +15% in total viewers.”

And of the total audience, 52% of them are of the female persuasion… which to me means they love the writing or they love Sam Witwer!

The show has a great creative team behind the production, with

“Executive Producers are Michael Prupas (The Kennedys, Pillars of the Earth), Jeremy Carver (Supernatural) and Anna Fricke (Men in Trees, Everwood) who are both writers/showrunners, Adam Kane (The Mentalist, Heroes), and Rob Pursey and Toby Whithouse. Irene Litinsky (Human Trafficking, The Phantom) is series Producer.”

Some time back, I was lucky enough to get a preview screener of the series and I loved it. I called or predicted that this would be one of Syfy’s best dramatic series on the cable network. I’m thinking I was right.
