Being Human is an American supernatural drama television series created by Toby Whithouse and based on the British series of the same name, which revolves around three roommates living in Boston who appear to be in their twenties. The trio try to live a normal life despite being a ghost, a vampire and a werewolf.
The series premiered in the USA on Syfy on 17 January, 2011.
Being Human premiered in South Africa on DStv's M-Net Series channel on Monday 31 October 2011, at 21h30. It moved to M-Net Series Showcase (simulcast in HD) from Season 3, when the former channel became defunct in July 2013. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.
Season 2 premiered on M-Net Series on Wednesday 3 April 2013, at 22h30. New episodes broadcast weekly. There are 13 episodes in the second season.
Being human: nobody ever said it was easy. But when you're a ghost, a vampire, and a werewolf, it may be completely impossible.
The action picks up where last season's explosive finale left off as Aidan (Sam Witwer), Sally (Meaghan Rath) and Josh (Sam Huntington) continue to struggle with their supernatural double lives.
Aidan tries to steer a leaderless Boston while resisting his deadlier vampire instincts as he finds himself tempted and tormented by a figure from his past.
Sally must face the consequences of missing her door while figuring out how to navigate life on earth as a ghost.
Josh searches for a cure for his condition while struggling to maintain his relationship with Nora and, like the rest of his roommates, trying to build a future for himself beyond simply being a monster.
Guest stars this season include Dichen Lachman (Dollhouse) as Suren and Kyle Schmid (The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants).
Being Human is a Muse Entertainment production in association with Zodiak USA and is based on the acclaimed series created by Toby Whithouse and produced by Touchpaper.
