Being Human fans will be excited to learn that there will indeed be a fourth season of the original British drama in 2012. (The third season is currently airing on BBC America.) Creator and EP Toby Whithouse says, “We were overwhelmed by the response to Series Three, and so we’re absolutely thrilled that the BBC have given us this opportunity to continue our show into a fourth year. We’ve got another intense and epic story lined up for you, with some new faces and old, and even more horror and mayhem and mugs of tea. I can’t wait to get started.”

Meanwhile, Syfy has revealed that they are renewing their American remake of the series. “Being Human has proven to be a winner for Syfy on all fronts,” said Syfy’s president of original content Mark Stern (via Deadline). “Using the original format as inspiration, showrunners/writers Jeremy Carver and Anna Fricke – along with a superlative team of writers, cast, and production – have created an amazing, compelling series in its own right,” said  We can’t wait to watch Aidan, Josh, and Sally continue their struggle to be human in the second season!”

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
