The show’s official Facebook page contained the statement “Fifth series of beinghuman coming your way, my friends” soon after the end of transmission. Although Annie’s actions meant that some of the threats facing the vampire/ werewolf/ ghost trio have been dealt with, new menaces were introduced in the final episode.
“Being Human lives on!” claimed series creator Toby Whithouse. “The response to series four has been terrific. We’re thrilled that the audience have taken the new cast into their hearts with such enthusiasm and affection.
“We’re delighted to have this opportunity to expand the world further and explore new characters and tell new stories. A heartfelt thank you to all the fans for their unstinting support, and to the BBC for letting us mess up the sandpit for a fifth year.”
Rob Pursey, Executive Producer, Touchpaper Television said in the official press release: “When we first made the pilot episode for Being Human we knew we had something special. But we didn’t dream we’d be making a fifth series. It’s a testament to the ambition of the writing and the performances that it’s stayed so fresh. We’re very grateful to the BBC for continuing to support a drama that doesn’t play by the usual rules.”
