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 3 premiered on M-Net Series Showcase on Monday 23 September 2013, at 21h30. New episodes broadcast weekly. There are 13 episodes in the third season.
Being Human stars Sam Witwer as Aidan, Meaghan Rath as Sally and Sam Huntington as Josh with Kristen Hager as Nora, joining this year as a series regular. The season consists of 13 episodes.
In the Season 2 cliffhanger Aidan found himself six feet under after being banished and buried as punishment from vampire leader Mother.
Sally became lost in a state of limbo and for Josh, events went horribly wrong when his plot to break the werewolf curse by killing his Maker Ray backfired, endangering Nora.
Now, as the new season begins... be careful what you wish for!
