Russell Tovey, Lenora Crichlow and Aidan Turner are, we are told, set to return for a third series of BBC Three horror drama Being Human, as the supernatural friends trying to live normal lives despite their unusual afflictions.
The new series will see the housemates relocate from their current home in Bristol to Wales – a move triggered by events in the climax of the second series (to be shown in February), which launched with an audience of 1.4 million.
Danny Cohen, Controller, BBC Three told the Nest, “Being Human is a wonderfully imaginative series from a brilliant team, both in front of and behind the camera. I'm proud to have this very original drama on BBC Three.”
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'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.”
