We’ve got some bad news for Syfy’s Being Human fans; this season will be its last. A little over year since the original UK version was canceled, the US version of the story following friendly monsters living under one roof will also be biting the dust.
Announced yesterday, Syfy released a statement on the canceling, and made clear that while they would finish out this season, the following six episodes would indeed be the last.
Showrunner Anna Fricke and the talented producers, writers, cast and crew have done an amazing job bringing this show to life over the past four seasons and we sincerely thank them and the series’ production company Muse Entertainment for their hard work. They’ve saved the best for last with the final six episodes that revisit the story’s beginning, leading to a not-to-be-missed send-off for Aidan, Sally, Josh and Nora.
This may not come as a surprise to fans of the show, which looked to be nearing its end for some time now. It was an artistic choice, according to a tweet from one of the show’s three leads, Sam Witwer, who claims that the goal was to “tell a great story from beginning to end.”
As a huge fan of the show, I have to admit, the show has been on a slight decline since the end of its second season, which was a fantastic high point for the show. While the show has still been solid, there is no doubt that it’s been missing the pizzazz of earlier season, and there just isn’t much left for these characters to accomplish.
We’ll be sad to see this show go, but glad that it got out before it became too much of a watered down mess. If you haven’t yet, be sure to get all caught up (the first three seasons are on Netflix) in time to say goodbye to Aiden, Josh, Nora and Sally when the series finale airs on April 7th.
