Exclusive: Being Human Brings Back [Spoiler]!

When it comes to Being Human, being most sincerely dead apparently isn’t enough to keep someone from taking part in Season 2 of the Syfy series.

Sources tell TVLine that Mark Pellegrino, who played big baddie Bishop throughout the first cycle — until the character was decapitated with prejudice by Aidan, then crumbed to dust — will reprise his role for at least one Season 2 episode, if not more.

This confirms that which exec producer Anna Fricke hinted at this summer at the San Diego Comic-Con, telling fans, “I think it’s safe to say we have not seen the last of Bishop in whatever form” –- thus allowing the possibility that he might not appear in the flesh per se but in flashbacks, for example.

A spokesperson for the Syfy series would neither confirm nor deny Pellegrino’s encore, but instead advised fans to “tune in to see what develops when the show returns” in January 2012.

Pellegrino, whose genre-TV resume includes stints on Supernatural and Lost, next can be seen on TNT’s The Closer, where he’s in the midst of a recurring role as a high-powered attorney defending Brenda in a wrongful death suit.
