Get More: News, Premieres

Did you hear the one about the werewolf, the ghost and the vampire? Well, unlikely roommates Josh, Sally and Aidan will return on Monday, Jan. 16, 2012, when Syfy premieres Season 2 of Being Human.

The sophomore series’ return date was but one in a flurry of announcements the cabler made on Tuesday.

Syfy also revealed that Lost Girl, the supernatural series it acquired in the spring, will lead out of Being Human, also on Jan. 16. The Canadian production stars Anna Silk (The Ghost Whisperer) as Bo, a young woman who had no reason to believe she was anything other than the girl next door until she “drained” her first boyfriend to death. That’s when she discovered she was in fact a succubus who feeds off sexual energy.

Lost Girl co-stars Kris Holden-Ried (The Tudors) as Dyson, a shape-shifting Fae/homicide detective and Bo’s love interest; Ksenia Solo (Life Unexpected) as Kenzi, Bo’s human confidante; Zoie Palmer (Instant Star) as Lauren, a doctor who competes for Bo’s heart (?!); Rick Howland (Tin Man) as Trick, a bartender with a secretive past, and K.C. Collins as Hale, a handsome siren/Dyson’s partner. Guest stars include Emmanuelle Vaugier (Human Target) as the leader of the Dark Fae.

Syfy also announced that standalone holiday-themed episodes of Eureka, Warehouse 13 and Haven wil air Tuesday, Dec. 6, from 8 to 11 pm. Their synopses are as follows:

Eureka, “Do You See What I See”: Sheriff Carter and Allison Blake are secretly planning the perfect holiday surprise for their kids. But a mysterious kaleidoscopic wave of color crashes over Eureka, leaving the entire town and its inhabitants animated. Curious Pictures will produce the animation featured in the episode, which will be broken up into different styles including Anime, claymation, animation inspired by the Looney Tunes cartoons and modern CG. Guest stars lending their voices include Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory), Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica), Chris Parnell (30 Rock) and Matt Frewer (M-m-m-max Headroom!).

Warehouse 13, “The Greatest Gift”: Pete is hit in the head by an artifact and wakes up to a life where he was never born. Pete must hunt down and persuade the Warehouse team (none of whom recognize him) to go on this life or death mission with him to vanquish a long dead nemesis from the past to get everyone’s lives back.

Haven, “Silent Night”: Audrey begins seeing Christmas decorations mysteriously popping up all over Haven in the middle of July yet nobody else seems to feel anything is unusual. Yet, when Haven residents start disappearing into thin air, Audrey convinces Nathan they must find a way to stop it.

  • Now, when will they answer why Alphas and Being Human get GetGlue stickers but W13/Eureka/Sanctuary/Haven don’t. But yay! It’s a Wonderful Warehouse Life!

  • The Christmas episodes last year were fun, and these sound like they will be as well. Of course, if Syfy really wanted to make me happy, they’d renew Haven . . .

    • Tempest, I will give you an early Christmas present. Haven has been renewed for Season 3. My elves were hard at work making that happen for you.

  • Umm, so the Eureka Christmas episode will include characters that (minor spoiler alert) sorta disappeared in the season finale; how will they explain that? Or are we supposed to suspend our memories for that particular episode?

  • SyFy did this last year with Warehouse 13 – all their Christmas eps are stand alone where they break from continuity. Mika quit last year as the cliffhanger for Warehouse and the ep had her and Pete doing a case like nothing was wrong. TNT does a much better job with the winter eps – they stay in line with the show. This year have of Eureka is on the Astraous (sp) and Audrey is missing on Haven but I guarentee none of that will be addressed, it will be like it never happened.

    And SyFy really needs to announce if they are picking up Haven. They left it on such a cliffhanger but then they just neglect to let us know whether the show will return? It’s the only summer series we don’t know the future of on SyFy.

    And when is A&E going to announce the future of The Glades. I hate that about cable – they take their sweet time giving you any info.

    • Perhaps SyFy is taking a cue from British television. Most series over there have separate, special Christmas Day shows, which often do not relate to the regular storyline. It’s OK to be different sometimes.

  • Hooray the Haven being renewed. Haven and Fringe are my two favorite shows. I am happy the SYFY Christmas episodes are back again this year. They were pretty good last year for Eureka and Warehouse 13. Looking forward to the Haven episode this year.

  • Lost Girl sounds sick and immoral, it will more than likely be cancelled before one can blink.

    I hope SyFy will start airing the BBC’s Sherlock and Robin Hood!

    • “Lost Girl sounds sick and immoral, it will more than likely be cancelled before one can blink.”

      Yeah, and Star Trek is a wagon train to the stars – sounds stupid, no one will watch it. Oh, wait…

      It’s well into a very successful season #2 in Canada. Why don’t you go back to burning books and actually let us enjoy reasoned discourse?

    • lost girl is already successful, it rocks, and currently in a 22 episode season 2! so maybe next time before you act like a know it all, you could watch a show before you make a negative comment, avoid putting you foot in your mouth. And if you don’t like it after watching it your either went in to watching the show with a bias or you just have 0 taste in TV!

  • I’m SO excited about the Lost Girl news! My friend in Canada sends me dvds of the episodes and it is FANTASTIC! Season 2 is already airing there and it just keeps getting better and better. I hope the show does well in the States and we get a DVD release over here!

  • I’ve been utterly hooked on Lost Girl since stumbling across it on “Showcase” awhile back. The storylines are interesting and engaging, there’s a ton of chemistry among the actors (wait until you see the episode “Vexed” – yow, sizzling), there’s a really interesting backstory, and the show never takes itself too seriously. The buddy comedy between “Bo” and “Kenzi” is hysterical, as well as the constantly dysfunctional romance between Bo and the werewolf/detective Dyson.

    Very highly recommended and enjoyable.
