Filming on the series 3 of Being Human has recently begun, and this is the first piece of news that I've seen so far. The casting news is coming fresh off SFX Magazine:
Fresh from a mind-boggling cameo where Terry Wogan ended up being a conduit for the men with sticks and rope last series, the powers-that-be behind Being Human have unveiled another well known TV star to appear on the show in the upcoming third season.[SFX]
Following in Michelle Ryan’s footsteps by moving from the Slater family to sci-fi, EastEnders star Lacey Turner (aka Stacey Slater) will feature as a guest star in the first episode of the new series, in her first role since announcing she is leaving Albert Square.
Speaking about filming on the show – which began shooting its third season in Wales last week – she said: “It was fantastic working on Being Human, I had some great scenes with Aidan Turner, especially when his character Mitchell is facing up to some of the things he has done in the past. The cast and crew were really welcoming and I can’t wait to watch how the story comes together on screen when the series airs.”
As for what else we can expect from the new season, details are sparse so far. [MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD] We’re told that the gang have moved permanently – or as permanently as it gets for them – to Wales to try and find some normality after the dramatic climax of the second series (far be it from us to say whether a village in Wales is the best place to find that). However, their fresh start is marred by the loss of Annie (Lenora Crichlow), who manages to contact Mitchell in a desperate cry for help. Missing his friend and anxious to help her, Mitchell is mobilised into action – which is where the other Turner and a plot a smidgen reminscent to Supernatural comes in. Mitchell must enter purgatory to try and save Annie, with the help of a mysterious character called Lia (Lacey Turner), who helps him on his way.
The way series 2 of Being Human ended, things were looking very dire for our beloved Annie. Let's just hope that it wont take the whole series for her to return to the fold.
Being Human series 3 is set to return return in the fall. A US version of Being Human is also being developed by SyFy.
