Syfy is losing yet another one of its fan favorites.
In a statement today, the network confirmed that after a four-season stint on the air, they are canceling “Being Human,” and the upcoming season finale airing on Monday, April 7 will be the last episode of the show. The series in total ran for four seasons, which is one less than it did in the United Kingdom, and it also leaves behind a rich array of devoted fans.
In a statement today, the network said that “showrunner Anna Fricke and the talented producers, writers, cast and crew have done an amazing job bringing this show to life over the past four seasons and we sincerely thank them and the series’ production company Muse Entertainment for their hard work. They’ve saved the best for last with the final six episodes that revisit the story’s beginning, leading to a not-to-be-missed send-off for Aidan, Sally, Josh and Nora.”
Is this enough to incite a revolt from Syfy fans? This is a question that we ask ourselves whenever they announce that a cancellation is happening, since you seem to hear about more of these events through them than with the majority of the other cable networks out there. We attribute it somewhat to science fiction shows often being expensive to film, and this negating the benefits of getting the sort of proper send-off that many fans want. Just ask “Alphas” about that.
One other interesting thing to note here is that Syfy’s parent company NBCUniversal has not been so lenient lately on allowing shows to get complete, proper endings. After all, the “Psych” season finale may not feel like a series finale, and the fate of “White Collar” is still up in the air.
