Being Human Canceled After Four Seasons
So here I am, minding my own business, catching up on last night’s episode of Being Human, and wondering how the show could get even better next season (because honestly, this season has been amazing so far). But now I don’t have to worry because this will be the final season for the series.
Here is Syfy’s official statement:
With the second half of “Being Human’s” 4th season set to kick off, our human-at-heart characters are about to embark on a journey full of twists, turns and surprises that will culminate in a spectacular series finale on Syfy, Monday, April 7th.
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.
Cast member Sam Witwer tweeted this:
Wanted to tell a great story from beginning to end. We didn’t want to bleed the concept dry Believe it or not -Artistic decision #BeingHuman

If this is indeed the case, it does make sense, although this is often the company line when shows get the axe. However, I am grateful that it seems we’re getting some closure at the end of this season. I’m also grateful they’re not yanking in the middle of the season.
Needless to say, Being Human will be missed, not only by its fans, but by its creators, cast and crew. The following video is a thank you to fans of the series from the entire cast:
