Last Monday marked the first season finale of the U.S. version of Being Human and closed the book on the Bishop chapter, but opened the door to a bigger mystery about a female of higher position wanting to meet with Aidan.
Witwer hinted that he knew who “she” was, but didn’t seem to know what was next for Aidan and the crew, but spoke about the writers being insanely busy getting ready for season 2.
Tomorrow night (April 11th) marks the season one finale of Syfy’s Being Human. Take a look below at a clip featuring Aidan, Josh and Celine. And remember to tune in tomorrow night for the sure to be shocking conclusion!
According to Internet Movie Database Sam is attached to the new animated television series, Ultimate Spider-Man. At this point, nothing has been confirmed and fans should be aware IMDB is a user updated website (not official by any means).
“Ultimate Spider-Man” is an animated television series developed by Steven T. Seagle, Joe Kelly, Joe Casey, and Duncan Rouleau. It is based off the Marvel comic books and will be aired over Disney Xd beginning Fall 2011. The new series is set to chronicle the adventures of teenage ‘Peter Parker’ and his attempts at dealing with his new abilities and new supervillains arriving in the city.
Sam will apparently lend his voice to the character Mac Gargan aka The Scorpion in the pilot episode. More details to follow!
Holy cow, Humans! Monday night’s penultimate episode of Being Human on Syfy not only included a few nail-biting cliffhangers (Please don’t die, Aidan!), but it also left us on a great note going into the season 1 finale. Lucky for you, Sam Witwer spilled many a secrets about next week’s wicked finale to help ease the pain of the wait.
“There are actually a few cliffhangers, and there are a few provocative questions, primarily with Josh and Aidan,” Witwer says. And some of those new questions are likely to be raised in the flashback scene to two years ago that “explains something that Josh did earlier this season,” Witwer teases.
“There’s a vengeful move that Josh does at the urging of [Josh’s jerk were-buddy] Ray. We learn a little bit more about why he did that. And we’re also catching Aidan right as he’s about to pull away from the vampires; he’s already starting to feel quite alone and isolated. So that, more than anything, allows him to identify Josh as someone else who has the same problem.”
But aside from exploring Aidan and Josh’s first encounter, the episode will also play a key part in defining what the trio’s friendship has become since their first meeting earlier this season — and what might change.
“By the end of the season, the question of are they better together or better apart is answered — or begins to get answered. We have a lot of moments that are designed to remind us — sometimes literally and sometimes in a metaphoric way — how far these characters have come with each other,” Witwer says.
But just don’t get too comfortable with the direction — or line-up, for that matter — that you see now. Because Witwer warns that come next week, not all will be as it is now. “Some of the things we end with demand the show has to change to keep up with them.”
