BBC commissions Being Human series 5
After last night’s finale, news arrives via Facebook that Being Human is to return for series 5 on BBC Three...
Without giving away anything (that’s the job of our spoiler-filled season finale review), the new incarnation of Being Human is to return for a fifth series on BBC Three.
After the final episode of the current series aired last night, the Being Human Facebook page posted a modest little update which read thusly, “Fifth series of beinghuman coming your way, my friends.” Cue 682 comments (at the time of writing) ranging from glee-filled excitement to old school sticklers prophesying doom for the new series and longing for the days of George, Nina and Mitchell.
We're interested in what impact this news is to have on BBC Three’s fantastic The Fades. At one point budget tightening looked as if it may be an either/or situation for the two shows, and now Being Human is confirmed to be returning, does that make it even more unlikely The Fades won’t be back for series two?
There’s no news on cast and scheduling as yet, but if series 5 follows the established pattern we should be seeing the reinvigorated Honolulu Heights team back on our screens in early 2013. We’ll bring you more as soon as we have it.
