Being Human stars Sam Witwer (Aidan), Meaghan Rath (Sally) and Sam Huntington (Josh) as three paranormal roommates (a vampire, ghost and werewolf) all trying to hold onto the remnants of their human lives while sharing each other’s secrets and a Boston brownstone. Kristen Hager, who has played Josh’s girlfriend Nora (also a werewolf) for the past two seasons, becomes a series regular this season.
The new season of Being Human picks up 15 months after the events of last season’s riveting finale, which ended with Aidan buried alive as punishment from vampire leader Mother, Sally lost in a state of limbo, and Josh’s plot to kill Ray, his werewolf “maker,” endangering Nora instead. Season 3 features new and returning guest stars including Mark Pellegrino, Amy Aquino, Xander Berkeley, Bobby Campo and Kyle Schmid.
