Being Human bites into a third season on Syfy

With a second season that's going strong from a numbers standpoint and taking its characters into thematically darker territory, the American version of Being Human has staked (GET IT?) out its own place in the supernatural series pantheon. Little surprise, then, that Aidan, Sally and Josh will be back in a third season on Syfy, as was made official by the network today.

The press release announcing Being Human's renewal touts the show's strong showing with the female audience (the best ever for a Syfy series) as a big selling point, as well as the continued general growth in viewership between the first and second seasons. Mark Stern, President of Original Content at Syfy, had this to say:

"With the success of season two, Being Human has become a premier destination for Syfy viewers," said Stern. "Jeremy Carver and Anna Fricke have taken this series to new heights this year and we're excited to see where the third season will go."

Are you excited for another taste of Being Human? Where do you want to see the adventures of these three paranormal roommates go in the coming season?
