British supernatural series Being Human has been canceled, BBC announced Thursday. The show will wrap up its fifth and final season (or series as our friends across the pond call them) later this year on BBC Three.

Series creator Toby Whithouse promised an “epic, thrilling and shocking finale” in a post on the show’s official blog. Hal, Tom and Alex will face off with their most fearsome adversary yet: the Devil himself.

About a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost living under the same roof, the format was adapted to an American series of the same name, which is currently airing its third season on Syfy.

The six-episode fifth season kicked off earlier this month on BBC Three. An air date for the finale has not yet been scheduled.

[CORRECTION Feb. 8 4:47 p.m. ET: An earlier version of this post stated that season 5 of Being Human had begun airing on BBC America. The fifth season has in fact not begun airing in the U.S., and a premiere date has not been set by the network, EW has confirmed.]
