Despite the turbulence involved in a major cast turnover, and with season 4 getting some mixed reactions as a result, season 5 of Being Human has easily won a green light from the BBC.
Being Human remains a big draw for BBC3, and, satisfyingly for the vampires and werewolves involved, even the transitioning cast of Being Human is beating True Blood in the ratings across the pond. The fourth season opener on BBC3 attracted 1.2 million viewers in the U.K.–quadruple the number that watched True Blood’s British premiere, which aired the same night, according to EW.
[..] creator Toby Whithouse is not only cryptic about the show’s future, but even seems to be embracing the nondeterministic nature of the show as it’s impacted by the vicissitudes of real life.
“The future of Being Human is always slightly in a state of flux,” he mused. “Who knows what it holds for any of us.”
While details on Season 5 are being kept under wraps, series creator Toby Whithouse did confirm that Michael Socha’s werewolfish character Tom will be back, as will vampire Hal (Damien Molony). Whithouse expressed gratitude toward the fans and BBC for their support.
