Syfy cancels Being Human (USA)

The US version of Being Human will end for good after the currently airing season four...

Monday the 7th of April will be home to the last ever episode of Syfy's Being Human, it's been confirmed. The US remake of Toby Whithouse's BBC Three supernatural series will close its doors for good at the end of the currently airing season four.

Fans have six further episodes before the ultimate finale, episodes that, according to Syfy, "revisit the series' beginning, leading to a not-to-be-missed send-off for Aidan, Josh, Sally and Nora." 

The Syfy remake, news of which was initially met with scepticism on this side of the pond (Bah, Americans! Do something new! etc) fought its corner over the course of the three-and-a-bit seasons we've seen so far. It changed Whithouse's supernatural flatshare drama enough to explore new territory and with a great deal more screentime for its characters, took them places our werewolf, ghost and vampire never went. Arguably its biggest boon was its casting, which gave us the talented Samuel Witwer, Meagan Rath and more.

Rest in peace, Being Human (USA). You will be missed.

Well my wife will miss it.

Well, they did give 'Haven' a fifth and sixth season, something had to give. Syfy normally gives a show 5 seasons and that's it. They did this with 'Stargate SG-1' and 'Atlantis', 'Eureka', 'Warehouse 13' and 'Battlestar Galactica'. The only show in recent years I know of that only got 4 seasons is 'Sanctuary'.

It's a shame I actually enjoyed this much more than the British version. Hopefully they aren't going to cancel all my shows, looks like Almost Human could be next

What a huge shame!

the british version is far superior.
