UPDATED: We've added the Damien Molony, Kate Bracken and Michael Socha interview featured on the official BBC press release.
Please... don’t stake the messenger. Word is spreading fast and you may have already seen the official BBC press announcement that this will be the last series of Being Human.
Sadly... it’s true.
Zai Bennett, Controller, BBC Three said: “Being Human has been a fantastic and faithful friend to BBC Three. It’s featured some truly exceptional actors and storylines through the years and I’d like to thank Toby and the production team for their vision and passion. However, all good things come to an end and at BBC Three we’re committed to breaking new shows and new talent and who better to pass that baton on than Toby.”
Rob Pursey, the show’s Executive Producer said: “Working on Being Human has been a truly great experience. I'd like to take the chance to thank Toby for his incredible writing and storytelling; the other screenwriters who've made the series their own, the three producers who've nurtured the show and the many directors who've helped us establish the show's unique tone. We will miss Being Human, but feel inspired that there is a place for series like this on British television.”
The good news, though, is that knowing that Being Human would conclude this year, Toby Whithouse has written a truly climatic final series that will test your nerves to breaking point.
Over the next five weeks Hal, Tom and Alex will face the most fearsome adversary imaginable… the Devil. Is this a one-way ticket to the apocalypse? What sacrifices must be made to postpone Armageddon?
The father of all evil will rise. Captain Hatch is just itching to inflict chaos on mankind. With the Men In Grey out of action and Crumb running rampant Hal, Tom and Alex have yet to fully comprehend the scale of the terror that awaits. Or the magnitude of running a seaside hotel.
The end has begun …
He. Will. Rise.
Check the blog again very soon for a post from Toby - #InWhithouseWeTrust - and later Mr Whithouse has selected his top five moments from Series One... which we’ll be throwing open to a vote.

We really do appreciate how you must be feeling. If it’s any consolation, we’ll be putting up a teaser of the must-see mayhem to come at 2pm…
