SEASON 3 OF SYFY'S "BEING HUMAN" STARRING SAM WITWER, MEAGHAN RATH AND SAM HUNTINGTON BEGINS PRODUCTION IN MONTREAL WITH MUSE ENTERTAINMENT PRODUCING

Anna Fricke is Executive Producer/Showrunner

Kristen Hager to Return as Series Regular

NEW YORK, NY - June 11, 2012 - Syfy's hit drama series Being Human, starring Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath and Sam Huntington, begins production on its third season today in Montreal. Anna Fricke (Men in Trees, Everwood) is Executive Producer/Showrunner with Muse Entertainment producing thirteen 1-hour episodes for Syfy.

In Being Human, vampire Aidan (Sam Witwer) ghost Sally (Meaghan Rath) and werewolf Josh (Sam Huntington) share the creature comforts of their Boston brownstone while struggling to keep their supernatural secrets from the outside world. Together they strive to resist the temptations of their true paranormal natures and live lives that are as near to "normal" as possible.

As the new season unfolds, Aidan resurfaces from being "grounded" and finds the vampire community vastly changed; he must find a new approach to feeding that will change his life forever. Sally fights to return from limbo and Josh must deal with an ominous visitor who comes to Boston looking for him and Nora.

Kristen Hager, who recurred throughout the first 2 seasons of Being Human playing Josh's (Sam Huntington) girlfriend Nora, will return this season as a regular series cast member. Nora, it was revealed in the Season 2 opener, had been turned into a werewolf by Josh and plays a significant role in the drama's tense Season 2 cliffhanger. Kristen Hager previously appeared in supporting roles in the features Wanted with Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy and Todd Haynes' Bob Dylan biopic I'm Not There with Cate Blanchett and Richard Gere. On television she has recurred on CSI: Miami and guest starred on NCIS: Los Angeles.

This year, in its second season, Being Human experienced impressive double-digit growth in key demos as well as total viewers season over season. Premiere episodes for Season 2 averaged 2.1 million total viewers per episode (+10% vs. Season 1), 1.3 million Adults 18-49 (+19%) and 1.3 million Adults 25-54 (+23%). It remains Syfy's youngest and most female skewing scripted series.

Executive Producers are Michael Prupas (The Kennedys, Pillars of the Earth), Jeremy Carver (Supernatural), Anna Fricke (Men in Trees, Everwood) who is also writer/showrunner, and Rob Pursey and Toby Whithouse. Stefan Pleszczynski is Supervising Producer and Irene Litinsky (Human Trafficking, The Phantom) is series Producer.
