Another Syfy freshman show is getting a second season. On the heels of yesterday’s news that reality show Face Off will return, Syfy has just granted another round of Being Human.

Syfy notes the show has averaged 1.8 million viewers, making it the network’s most successful winter scripted series launch in six years. Also, the show has a 53 percent female audience, making it the channel’s most female-skewing series ever.

Being Human has proven to be a winner for Syfy on all fronts,” said Syfy programming president Mark Stern. “Using the original format as inspiration, showrunners/writers Jeremy Carver and Anna Fricke – along with a superlative team of writers, cast, and production – have created an amazing, compelling series in its own right. We can’t wait to watch Aidan, Josh and Sally continue their struggle to be human in the second season!”
