Get ready for more adventures of your favorite ghost/vampire/werewolf trio. Syfy has renewed Being Human for a fourth season.
The announcement is particularly welcome news for fans of the supernatural drama who were left with some tantalizing cliffhangers when Being Human’s third season aired its finale earlier this week.

Syfy had several announcements about upcoming programming today surrounding the cable network’s New York upfront presentation. Check out more Syfy news below.
