Our British brethren got some good news this week as BBC Three finally unveiled the release date for “Being Human” Series 3: Sunday 23rd January 2011. To celebrate, we have some new character photos along with a video of Sinead Keenan (Nina) providing a tour of “Honolulu Heights” – the quartet’s new digs.
From the “Being Human” Blog: Mitchell, George, and Nina are all BACK. And Annie… well, we can only hope.
This year’s series is set to be better than ever, with the awesome foursome moving over the border to Wales in an effort to escape their past and start a new life. But things are never simple, and Mitchell’s first job is to venture into purgatory and rescue Annie before she gets sent to hell.
But it’s not just the amazing storylines we’re looking forward to; there are also the guest stars to consider, including Lacey Turner (Eastenders), Robson Green (Wire in the Blood), Michael Socha (This Is England ’86), Paul Kaye (It’s All Gone Pete Tong), Craig Roberts (Young Dracula), Nicola Walker (Spooks), James Fleet (Vicar of Dibley) and Jason Watkins returning as the unstoppable force that is Herrick.
“Being Human” creator Toby Whithouse said “A third series is a unique opportunity because it allows you to take all the best bits of series one and series two… What we took from series one is the domestic element and very strong stories of the week with very strong guest characters. Series two had much more of an epic sweep and a breadth of ambition. Series three has allowed us to combine all those things.”
We’ve also got Becoming Human, our online extension that pushes the “Being Human” universe into new territory. Set in a college where supernaturals study among the living, a new host of characters will be trying to solve a very grizzly murder.
Here’s hoping spring comes soon, as that’s when we US fans will get our first look at the new season.
