The second season of the Syfy series Being Human is premiering; you may have seen the commercials with Ida Maria’s song Bad Karma playing in the background. The series instantly draws your attention with the tag line, “Temptation Is A Beast,” as they prepare for the second season and fully embrace their dark sides.
Being Human is the re-imagination of the acclaimed BBC original series that follows three individuals dealing with a big conundrum. They must keep their dark secrets at bay, but all of the complex problems get in the way as they lead double lives. We have a ghost, a vampire and a werewolf who are struggling to keep what they are a secret but temptation gets in the way.
The series stars Sam Witwer (Smallville), Meaghan Rath (The Assistants), Sam Huntington (Caveman) and Mark Pellegrino (Lost, Supernatural). In the first season, they appeared normal and tried to fit in as everyday humans, but now they are embracing what they are.
There are quite a few insane surprises for season two, and of course the Syfy cast members are keeping things secret and staying mum on the exact plots, but it is expected to be an explosive season. Huntington, Witwer and Rath took part in a Q&A to discuss the show. The cast is excited for the second season. Their bond together is strong, and they believe that gives them more momentum as a cast.
The interesting fact about Being Human is they do not focus mainly on the paranormal aspect because the characters are real people. It allows the show to go in many different directions. The actors are able to bring humanity to their roles and challenge their morality. How much trouble can a ghost, vampire and werewolf really get into? The characters are grounded. Witwer said you will see “our characters react with horror and shame.”
The three of them have an amazing chemistry off screen, and are witty, intelligent. When viewers watch the show they will feel the camaraderie between them. There are several exciting moments on the show that Rath is excited for the viewers to see, but she could not discuss them because “we would get fired.”
Huntington is excited about the material and the challenges he took on as an actor. Season two will show the three as more than just roommates with unusual paranormal talents. We will see them go on a journey and watch them get out of desperate situations. The series takes on many dark topicx, including vampires, werewolves and ghosts being just human beings that are slightly corrupted (Zombies included, according to Witwer).
Huntington, Witwer and Rath are also a big part of the social networks, and they appreciate the fans and the viewers. Huntington loves the community on the social networks and being able to hear from the viewers. They are on a rollercoaster with Being Human and making the best of every moment.
