SYFY’S “BEING HUMAN” RETURNS MONDAY, JANUARY 16 AT 9:00PM ET/PT
Breakout Supernatural Drama Stars Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath and Sam Huntington
Orlando, FL – October 10, 2011 – The second season of Syfy’s hit drama series Being Human will premiere on Monday, January 16 at 9PM, it was announced today. The season will consist of 13 new episodes and anchor Syfy’s “Powerful Mondays” programming block. Being Human stars Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath and Sam Huntington.
Being human: nobody ever said it was easy. But when you’re a ghost, a vampire, and a werewolf, it may be completely impossible. The action picks up where last season’s explosive finale left off as Aidan (Witwer), Sally (Rath) and Josh (Huntington) continue to struggle with their supernatural double lives.
Aidan tries to steer a leaderless Boston while resisting his deadlier vampire instincts as he finds himself tempted and tormented by a figure from his past. Sally must face the consequences of missing her door while figuring out how to navigate life on earth as a ghost. Josh searches for a cure for his condition while struggling to maintain his relationship with Nora and, like the rest of his roommates, trying to build a future for himself beyond simply being a monster. Guest stars this season include Dichen Lachman (Dollhouse) as Suren and Kyle Schmid (The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants).
Being Human is a Muse Entertainment production in association with ZODIAK USA and is based on the acclaimed series created by Toby Whithouse and produced by Touchpaper.
