Syfy Sets Dates for Being Human Season 2, Lost Girl Premiere and 3 Series' Christmas Specials
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.
