BEING HUMAN IS BACK IN JULY

The highly anticipated second season of BBC AMERICA's co-production, Being Human premieres this July. Russell Tovey, Lenora Crichlow and Aidan Turner return as George, Annie and Mitchell, the three twenty-somethings trying to live as normally as possible despite being a werewolf, a vampire and a ghost. Being Human premieres Saturday, July 24, directly following the Doctor Who season finale.

After the death of vampire leader Herrick at the end of season one, the supernatural friends are hoping they can now get on with their lives, but an even greater danger is lurking, within the very human world of which they want to be a part. Unbeknown to the trio, the mysterious Professor Jaggat and her cold-hearted colleague Kemp - religious zealots who have discovered the existence of vampires, werewolves and ghosts- are determined to carry out brutal experiments and destroy them.

While Professor Jaggat and Kemp plot behind the scenes, werewolf George is coming to terms with the fact that he has Herrick's blood on his hands, and a girlfriend who knows his horrific secret. Turning down the door of death has implications for ghost Annie, but her confidence is at a peak and she's determined to stand up and be counted in the real world. And, with Herrick gone, Mitchell must appease an out of control vampire world - can he find a way to lead by example?

Being Human first premiered on the channel last July and quickly won over fans, with a sold out crowd at last year's San Diego Comic Con. The Los Angeles Times said it "has not only avoided any sci-fi Three's Company comparisons but wound up with a compelling, self-aware and funny story line. Buffy fans - come out of the Twilight and sink your teeth into this import" with The New York Times noting that "all three characters are highly appealing, but the charm of the show lies in the delicate balance of engrossing drama and disarming humor; the series is not campy or self-conscious, it's witty in an offhand, understated way."

The Being Human: Season 1 DVD and Blu-ray is available July 20. It features all six episodes along with over an hour of bonus material including deleted scenes, behind-the-scenes featurettes, video diaries, and character profiles. The entire first season is also currently available on iTunes and Xbox LIVE Marketplace.

EPISODE SYNPOSES

*** SPOILER ALERT ***

Episode One:

Mitchell realizes that the vampire society is in complete disarray following the death of Herrick - and it's about to implode. Meanwhile George seems like a changed man after crossing the line and killing - until he discovers a horrible truth about Nina. And Annie is feeling confident and visible enough to get a job.

Episode Two:

Annie thinks she has met the man of her dreams, a sexy human called Saul. But Saul is not all he seems and the only date he's interested in is with Death. Meanwhile, Mitchell realizes that if he's going to contain the vampires then he's going to have to get his hands dirty. And George struggles to maintain a normal relationship with Nina.

Episode Three:

Mitchell becomes the reluctant leader of the vampires in an attempt to contain their increasingly random killings. The only light at the end of the tunnel is his burgeoning relationship with Lucy Jaggat, the feisty new doctor at work, who studies werewolves, vampires and ghosts. George, reeling from Nina's departure, takes his mind off things by helping Annie in her mission to play Cupid. She's determined to get her old boss Hugh back together with the love of his life.

Episode Four:

George embraces normality in a desperate attempt to contain the wolf. He gets a new job, a new girlfriend, and even a cage to transform in. But he soon recognizes that containing the wolf is an impossible task. Meanwhile, Annie meets an enigmatic ghost who offers to help her keep Death at bay. And Mitchell falls in deeper with the vampires.

Episode Five:

Mitchell's past is revealed and the reasons why he turned his back on killing. In the present, he's struggling to contain that same desire and need. Things with Lucy also come to a passionate head. Meanwhile, George's relationship with his girlfriend, Sam continues to grow and Annie has a shock when she's left looking after a ghost baby.

Episode Six:

Annie gets a job working with a stage psychic and finds a new sense of purpose by helping ghosts resolve their issues with their living relatives. But things take a turn for the worse when Annie's mom appears in the audience. Meanwhile, Lucy's reaction to sleeping with Mitchell has some very violent and shocking repercussions. And Sam has got a very important question for George.

Episode Seven:

Mitchell discovers a shocking truth about Lucy and the vampire massacre. He swears revenge - in style. Meanwhile, Nina returns, presenting George with the most difficult decision of his life. There are big decisions for Annie too, when she decides it's time to pass on. George, Nina and Annie end up in Lucy's research facility - and it seems that only Mitchell can save them.

Episode Eight:

It's the final showdown at the research facility. Will Mitchell save his friends from Lucy's macabre experiments? And as Mitchell's heart blackens with rage and fury will his friends be able to save him from himself? And is this really the end of Annie?
