After giving the first few episodes a fairly positive review, unfortunately time got away from me and I haven’t stayed on top of SyFy’s new “original” series, the remake of the British imported Being Human. However, there’s good news for fans who have been more loyal and responsible than I have as Syfy has just announced that they’ve renewed the series for a second season. In addition, the series premiere was the networks’ most successful winter season scripted series launch in six years and apparently it has become the network’s most successful series with their female demographic.

If you haven’t followed the series, it focuses on three supernatural roommates, a vampire Aidan (Sam Witwer), a ghost Sally Meaghan Rath) and a werewolf Josh (Sam Huntington), who share their secrets and a Boston brownstone. Together they learn that there are fates worse than death and more to life – and the afterlife – than most “normal” humans could ever imagine. See the official press release after the jump.

On SyFy’s re-imagining of the popular British television series Being Human, premiering on January 17th, actor Sam Witwer plays Aidan, a seemingly young man who has worked as a nurse in a hospital in Boston for the past several years, but in reality is an over 200-year-old vampire that is trying to sustain himself by not killing humans. While at work, the normally closed-off Aidan meets Josh (Sam Huntington), whose own future was hijacked the instant he was turned into a werewolf. The friendship the two have formed leads to a new sense of normalcy for them both, and they decide to be roommates in a place that they discover is already inhabited by the ghost of its last resident, Sally (Meaghan Rath).

During a recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, Sam Witwer, previously known for his work as Doomsday on The CW series Smallville, talked about how proud he is of his work on Being Human, what it’s like to play a vampire that’s over 200 years old, how quickly he bonded with his co-stars, and his hope that viewers will tune in and give the show a chance, since it is quite different from the original.

At a time when pop culture is plagued by an onslaught of vampires and werewolves sweeping women off their feet, a fresh take on these familiar monsters is always welcome. While True Blood may have the market cornered on brutal violence and eroticism between these mythical creatures, Being Human steps into the ring with surprising success. Being Human follows the exploits and struggles of a werewolf named Josh (Sam Huntington), a vampire named Aidan (Sam Witwer) and a ghost named Sally (Meaghan Rath) as they live together and console each other while figuring out where they belong in the world. It sounds like a silly idea at first, but if you give Being Human time, this is a SyFy series that is something special to behold. Find out why below.
