The story of three ‘unusual’ creatures continued. The TV series of three supranatural creatures ‘Beng Human’ has entered the second season. What will happen?????
‘Being Human’ Season Two: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath and Sam Huntington Reveal Details
There has never been a household as unusual as the one in “Being Human” — three very special roommates are rammed into the two-storey home: the vampire Aidan (Sam Witwer), ghost Sally (Meaghan Rath) and werewolf Josh (Sam Huntington). While the three have bonded, they’ve also struggled to lead normal lives and leave any supernatural antics behind. Even on the spoiler-filled Montreal set in October, an ominous visitor was causing trouble for Sally. When not dealing with the crisis at hand, the three leading actors, along with executive producer Adam Kane, joked around and spoke about the second season of “Being Human.”
In The Beginning
Based on the hit UK series of the same name, Space’s/Syfy’s “Being Human” borrowed certain elements from its predecessor. Thankfully, original British creators Toby Whithouse and Rob Pursey, championed this new version.
“For Season 1, they let us in on what worked for them, which was an amazing gift because invariably, you don’t know until you get into it,” says Kane. “You have a lot of ideas about what you’d like to do, but they were really open and honest with us about the things they stumbled upon in their own exploration of what worked. We were able to make a lot more successful choices because of that guidance from Toby and Rob.”
Trying to adapt to their unusual circumstances, Sally, Sam and Aidan have endured extreme physical and emotional conflicts. As the second season commences, it’s only been a short time after the finale, and the roomies are busy picking up the pieces.
“At the end of the first season, we feel all our characters had gained a certain level of freedom and maybe their lives were going to get a little easier,” explains Kane. “Aidan had killed Bishop (Mark Pellegrino), his maker, and so we feel he’s on the path to becoming free. Josh has let his secret out, so you feel he has a shot at a successful relationship. That weight has been lifted. And despite Sally missing her door, they found a way to love each other in a home where they are supported emotionally. That emotional support was lacking in her last relationship with Danny. There’s this opportunity for the characters to move forward.”
Calm Before The Storm
There won’t be a quiet reprieve any time soon, though. Promos for season 2 of “Being Human” promise plenty of “temptations” and “unleashing the beast.” Clearly, Aidan and Sam have desperately attempted to suppress their animal instincts, so such teasers are meant both literally and symbolically.
“Sally is grasping for a person, so when you’re that vulnerable, it’s very easy to let bad things in,” reveals Huntington. “They definitely do for her in a big way. With Aidan, “she” comes back and that brings him in deep with the vampires. Aidan is doing everything he can to stay sane which is proving to be very difficult. The funny thing is for Josh, he’s witnessing someone be tempted and desperately trying to reel them back in. It’s a little different for him. Just like in season 1, there’s a couple of times he embraces the wolf and uses its power in his favour.”
“The promos are metaphorical and a play on words,” notes Kane. “Unleashing the beast ties directly to Josh and the people he comes into contact with. For Aidan, it’s figuratively as well, because the deeper he goes into his vampire past, the more the monster inside is going to be released. In fact, the more bad choices Aidan is going to have to make, he’s going to get darker and delve into the darkness a lot more before he’s allowed to maintain his own freedom.”
“Aidan forgets himself a little bit,” says Witwer. “He takes many steps back from what he’s trying to accomplish in terms of rediscovering his humanity. He’s put in bad situations that aren’t entirely his fault. Unfortunately, some of those things are brought home. It’s a nasty season.”
For Sally, incident after incident have begun to take a toll on the young spirit:
“By the end, there’s a level of post-traumatic stress that builds up,” offers Rath. “It’s a lot to handle. My idea of Sally and her life is she didn’t really believe there was anything after. Maybe she believed there was a heaven or hell, but she never thought about it. Ghosts never occurred to her. She keeps hitting these new lows.” (Bryan Cairns – The Huffington Post)
