“With the success of Season 2, Being Human has become a premier destination for Syfy viewers,” network boss Mark Stern said in announcing the news. “Jeremy Carver and Anna Fricke have taken this series to new heights this year and we’re excited to see where the third season will go.”

Face Off, which is currently unspooling its Season 2 on Wednesdays at 10 pm, most recently delivered a series high of more than 2 million total viewers, with 1.2 mil of ’em falling into the coveted 18-49 category. Production on the 10-episode Season 3 will begin this spring, with an eye on a summer launch.
