BBC AMERICA'S "BEING HUMAN" RETURNS FOR ITS FINAL SEASON AS PART OF SUPERNATURAL SATURDAY

Will the trio ever become truly human again?

New York - June 5, 2013 - BBC AMERICA's supernatural series, Being Human, returns for its explosive final chapter this July. Concluding its five-season run, three unconventional housemates - Vampire Hal (Damien Molony), Werewolf Tom (Michael Socha, Once Upon a Time) and Ghost Alex (Kate Bracken), navigate a turbulent world, searching for their lost humanity. But things quickly turn dangerous when the trio realize the greatest evil known - the Devil - is wandering the earth in the shape of a man, set to conquer and rule the world. The roommates will battle this ultimate enemy in an epic showdown to save both humans and supernaturals and in the end, their souls. Being Human premieres Saturday, July 13, 10:00pm ET/PT as part of Supernatural Saturday.

Creator and Lead Writer, Toby Whithouse (Doctor Who, Torchwood), promises a grand ending to the series, stating "Consequently we've created what I hope you'll agree is an epic, thrilling and shocking finale that'll keep the fans guessing and speculating for years to come."

At the end of season four, viewers witnessed former housemate and ghost Annie (Lenora Crichlow, Back in the Game) meeting her supernatural end when she saved the world from being ruled by the powerful vampire group "The Old Ones." Now, Hal and Tom have a new ghost in the midst of their Honolulu Heights home in Alex - a vibrant tomboy who lost her life to a vampire's fangs in retribution for a crime Hal committed 100 years earlier. After being marooned to the afterlife by Hal, their former romance turned sour. With Hal reeling from guilt and desperately trying to tame his thirst, this season sees him conflicted between his hedonistic vampire instincts and being an upright citizen. Meanwhile, Tom's ambition is to gain confidence and progress in life. He is determined to get noticed by his peers and prepared to take action to make it happen - but at what cost?

With bills to pay, Hal and Tom find new employment at the Barry Grand Hotel. The hotel, however, is the home of a poisonous retiree, Captain Hatch (Phil Davis, Whitechapel, Sherlock), who on the surface seems to be a grumpy old man. But unbeknownst to them, he hides a dark secret that threatens not only the housemates' friendships but the entire world. Obscurely, Captain Hatch manipulates the way the trio feels about each other and suddenly minor disagreements turn into major conflicts. Gradually, their treasured trust decreases and Hal, Tom and Alex's common goal - to find humanity - becomes more distant than ever before.

This final season also sees Mr. Rook, the shady figure whose government department protects the world from supernaturals, battling to hold on to his power. Much to his horror, the government intends to close his organization due to high running costs. Attempting to justify his association's existence and keep his job, Mr. Rook creates problems to prove the danger posed by supernaturals.

In a town where a threat is lurking around every corner and where the Devil is growing stronger each day, Hal, Tom and Alex need to overcome their differences and unite in order to save themselves and the world from destruction. Even the best of friends can become enemies in a ruthless world, but collectively they will try to rise against the evil like true heroes.

Being Human is produced by Touchpaper Wales (part of Zodiak Media Group), Cymru Wales for the BBC and co-produced by BBC AMERICA.
