TV show description:      
Based on the BBC show of the same name, this TV series follows a trio of twenty-something roommates who happen to be a ghost, a vampire, and a werewolf. They struggle to keep their dark secrets from the world while also helping each other navigate the complexities of living double lives.

Aidan Waite (Sam Witwer) has been a vampire since the Revolutionary War and now works as a nurse at Suffolk County Hospital in Boston. He likes having in a job where he can do some good and help people. He also finds comfort in helping lay people to rest, helping them find the peace in death that he will never know.

Funny and neurotic, Josh Levison (Sam Huntington) saw his bright future hijacked when he was turned into a werewolf. He had to abandon his family and the life he’d once known with no explanation. He established a lonely existence on the fringes of society, escaping to the woods each full moon for his excruciating transformation into a werewolf.

When he met Aidan, Josh started to relax and was able to begin rebuilding a somewhat normal life. With Aidan’s help, Josh secured a job as an orderly in the hospital. Though it’s nothing close to the future he had in medical school, Josh takes solace that at least he’s working in the medical profession.

Growing up, Sally Malik (Meaghan Rath) was often forced to be tough and, as a result, she became a young woman who wouldn’t take a lot of flack. She’s vivacious, smart, funny and driven. Sally envisioned herself working at the United Nations or, at the very least, going to graduate school. While in college, she fell in love with Danny and they became engaged right after graduation.

Sally and Danny (Gianpaolo Venuta) moved into the townhouse that was to later be occupied by Josh and Aidan. After Sally’s premature death, she begins haunting it as a ghost. Her early demise finds her floundering for answers.

James Bishop (Mark Pellegrino) is armed with power and knows how to use it. Bishop is above the law as lieutenant and leader of a vicious vampire legion in Boston. And though his devoted cronies cater to his every whim, Bishop won’t rest until he’s able to lure Aidan back into his fold of thirsty blood hunters.

    I’m really going to miss the show. I’m really going to miss seeing the ladies on the show. Nora and Sally are both hot as hell!! The whole group comes together to make a great story about living with incredible differences. I’m hoping that some other network might pick up the series.

    If the network is saying it’s over, then it, probably, already is. The actors, and everyone else involved, have most likely moved on. Being Human was an excellent show. I couldn’t believe it, when I I heard the next episode announced as the “series” finale. Ending this show was a mistake.

    I am surprise it lasted it this long. I was a fan of the British version and their is just no comparison between the two. The writers tried to do something different so it wouldn’t be like the British version and instead they created a story line that drove around in a circle for a hour each episode. I watched the entire series, hoping it would pick up but it never did.

    Please don’t cancel Being Human. We really enjoy this show. My husband doesn’t really care for scifi shows, but he REALLY likes this one! Who do we contact to let SyFy know we want them to keep the show?
