      • I agree. The cast is superb. I hope the main 3 stay for all 13 episodes in season 4. What about the morgue guy?

    • I’m also named Juan, and love this show. I can’t watch episodes when they air, and was left for almost a week waiting to see the finale. It was 100% worth the wait. I wonder where Sally’s going. She’s been to Purgatory, and briefly no longer existed, so the only two places I can think of are Heaven and Hell, and I doubt she’s going somewhere nice.

  • Phew, I was worried it wouldn’t be renewed due to it’s low ratings this season, and big decline vs last season

  • Wow. Now I can relax. One of my favorite shows this year!

    • I agree…but 2014 will have to watch season 3 all over again within a week of new season, to get primed fseason 4. I’m old and forget whos what and why…lol

  • Awesome news! Sam Witwer is easily the best actor on television.

    • And the hottest, lol. LOVE this show. I only discovered it a few weeks ago and can’t get enough!

    • I have never liked vampires or warewolves. I was checking out the channels one night in 2011
      and for some reason Being Human really cought my eye, I started watching it the night that Sallys’ boyfriend pushed her down the stares. It seems that Being Human is only on no more than 4 to 6 weeks then it is gone for a year, then the reruns are so far and inbetween. Producers do things their own way and in their own time and to heck with the people that injoy it. Josh, Nora, Sally,
      and Aiden are great acters and actrises. It would be good to see the love that Josh and Nora have for each other at this point return as wolves with that same strong love and protection for
      oneanother as well as others. Looking forward to seeing them again.

  • I am thrilled and relieved, thank you, SyFy!

  • I agree with the article… I’m a BIG fan of the UK version and the US version’s departure from the UK version has helped it create its own identity! And it really makes it a better show (than just being a copy of the UK one.)

    Comment by Dennis Pascual (@dennis_p) – April 10, 2013 12:23 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • As an original fan of the UK version, I feel like this version has surpassed the original in so many ways. Realism, storyline, keeping the characters between seasons, and better special effects all make this the superior product. The best season of the original was the 1st and maybe the second. The US version is consistently great TV.

      Comment by topoopon – April 10, 2013 05:56 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I disagree, I still like the UK version better- at least the first 3 seasons. Once 2 of the 3 main characters left I lost interest. But to each their own :)

        • I agree afteer season 3 it started to go down hill in the U.K. version, now I prefer the US one

          Comment by Ivan Lind – April 10, 2013 06:46 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • I actually think the Syfy series surpassed the BBC series from season 2 onwards. I think Toby Whithouse (who made the BBC series) played all his cards in the first series and then spent the rest of the time playing character/plot do-overs.

  • So glad that the wait for a renewal is over. I really enjoy the actors and plotlines on this show and I can’t wait to see what happens next year!

  • Yay! I would have been so frustrated if the show ended with those multiple cliffhangers

    Comment by Em – April 10, 2013 12:43 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Exactly what I was thinking at the end of the episode – “Damn it show, you can’t leave it there!”

      Comment by Mo – April 10, 2013 03:53 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Glad to hear the good news of renewal. I was worried about cancellation since television execs are so hell bent on shoving reality TV down our throats.

  • Outstanding news. Sam Huntington, Sam Witwer and Meaghan Rath are all immensely talented, and I am looking forward to seeing where Josh, Aidan and Sally’s stories go next season.

  • That should of been a NO Brainer for SyFy.
    The US version of Being Human has surpassed it’s now deceased UK counterpart

    • Like.

      Comment by topoopon – April 10, 2013 05:57 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Surpassed it in number of episodes at least. The UK version had 5 seasons but only 6 or 8 episodes a year. I still prefer the first 3 seasons of the UK version, but I will admit they’ve done a really good job expanding the storylines and creating their own identify for the US version. It makes it very enjoyable.

    Comment by David – April 10, 2013 04:52 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Great, would like to see Aiden and Sally together too but his dead wife did show up at the end of the last episode. Also I know some people might not like this but for once I would love to see this three actually have something good happen to them that will last. (I mean just one thing)……..

    Comment by K. – April 10, 2013 04:54 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I’m glad to hear that it’s being renewed for next season!!! But why only 13 episodes?? Why not have the usual 20-25 like other shows…

  • This is good news. This is a great show!

    Comment by DMD – April 10, 2013 05:34 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I loveeee this show but why must it take a year to come back ? And why only 13 episodes. I feel that since there is only one season a year it should be a long season like 20 or more episodes.

  • Ecstatic that the show has been renewed. This season was incredible. Can’t wait to see what’s in store for next season. Just wish the show was on longer and not have such a short season.

    Comment by Anna – April 10, 2013 06:45 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • It’s on cable not broadcast, so it makes perfect sense that only 13 episodes where ordered, it’s cheaper for Syfy to order 13 rather then 22 ike the Big 4 networks, so it’s the right call plus ratings, where down vs last season 34% in the demo and 28% in viewers, cable networks typically order between 10-13 episode seasons

  • Very happy News. This really is one of my favorite shows. I love the character development we’ve seen in Josh and Sally the wisdom Aidan is able to randomly shell out (for everyone else’s problems, anyway, lol). I started watching the UK version but didn’t really like it (I’m from the US, though, so it made sense). Can’t wait for next season.

  • Yay …..can’t wait I have bought the first 2 seasons and will buy season 3 when it comes out

  • I’m thrilled to hear a fourth season is coming. I’m just sad that I have to wait basically a whole other year before it comes on. What to do till then!??! I absolutely love this show!! I watch it religiously, lol! Can’t wait!! (Wish it was on year round… :-D )
