being human syfy 320 Syfy gives 'Being Human' another season of lifeSyfy has picked up its freshman series “Being Human” for a second season, the cable channel announced Thursday (March 17).

The show has put up decent ratings over its first nine episodes, averaging 1.8 million viewers for first-run airings and drawing an audience that’s 53 percent female — making it the most heavily female-skewing scripted series in the channel’s history.

“‘Being Human’ has proven to be a winner for Syfy on all fronts,” says Mark Stern, head of original programming for Syfy. “Using the original format as inspiration, showrunners/writers Jeremy Carver and Anna Fricke — along with a superlative team of writers, cast, and production — have created an amazing, compelling series in its own right.”

The show, based on a British series of the same name, stars Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath and Sam Huntington as, respectively, a vampire, a ghost and a werewolf who share a Boston apartment and try to blend in with the mortals around them. Mark Pellegrino (“Lost,” “Supernatural”) also stars as Witwer’s “mentor.”

There’s no word yet on when Season 2 will air; the first season is scheduled to conclude on April 11.
