Being Human has been cancelled. The North American remake of the popular UK series will conclude its run on April 7 after four seasons.
The Montreal-shot series airs on Space in Canada and Syfy in the US. The American cable network released the following message following their decision to end the series:
“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.”
The final six episodes of Being Human will continue to air Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Space and Syfy.
Following the announcement, series star Sam Witwer (Aidan) took to twitter to address the fans of the popular sci-fi series:
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

It seems that the cast and crew were aware that the show’s fourth season would be its last during production, so they filmed a ‘Thank you’ message to fans letting them know what they’ll miss the most about working on the show. Syfy released the video today following the announcement but made it only available to users in the United States. Space (or Bell Media) have yet to comment on Being Human’s cancellation.
