Some good news for our friends across the pond crept out over the weekend: the BBC Three’s “Being Human” is being renewed for its third season. And not only that, but the three housemates are relocating to Wales!
The BBC’s Press Office confirmed that stars Russell Tovey, Lenora Crichlow, and Aidan Turner will all be returning to their roles of supernatural friends trying to live normal lives despite their unusual afflictions (i.e., being a werewolf, ghost, and vampire, respectively).
The popular drama made by Touchpaper Television, part of the RDF Media Group, will see the housemates relocate from their current home in Bristol to Wales – a move triggered by events in the dramatic climax of the second series (to be shown in February).
Ben Stephenson, Controller Drama Commissioning says: “BBC Three drama is all about allowing the singular imagination of a writer the room to flourish, and Toby [Whithouse]’s extraordinary creation of an emotionally rooted yet mythic world personifies this completely. I can’t wait to see where Toby and Touchpaper Television’s imaginations will take the story over another eight episodes.”
Rob Pursey, Executive Producer, Touchpaper Television says: “BBC Three continues to provide us with a great opportunity to make unusual, ambitious drama, and we are very excited to be able to take the new series of Being Human into fresh territory. With the new location in mind, we’ve already established some startling new storylines and characters. We’ll also aim to deliver plenty more exclusive online content in the gaps between series.”
