I hate to say it guys, but the future of BBC’s Being Human isn’t looking so hot. One of its main stars, Russell Tovey, is quitting the show. Russell recently confirmed that he will no longer play the role of werewolf George Sands. Sad sad news.
Russell Tovey has already filmed season four of Being Human, which is due to premiere early next year, so fans have one more season with him. But he won’t return for more. Considering that one of the other original stars of the show, Aidan Turner, left at the end of season three, it does make you wonder if fans will even get a season five. Can the show survive without both Aidan and Russell? I doubt it.
Tovey announced the news to his fans via his Twitter page, saying:
“Hey my lovely witty’s, you may or may not know by now, but I am leaving Being Human officially. Thought you should all know. I’m sorry.”
In an interview he said that he believes that the show can go on without him and Aidan.
“No, with Being Human the story can definitely go on and on. Toby [Whithouse - the series' writer] still runs it and they can do all sorts, add giants and robots!”
Yeah, ok… giants and robots… that’s totally what the fans want. Not! I seriously doubt the show will go on without him and Aidan. After all, the show is about three roommates – a ghost, a vampire and a werewolf – living together and helping one another play the role of human. How are they supposed to keep that story going when there’s only a ghost left?
At least we still have SyFy’s Being Human, none of their actors have left and it’s said that they will no longer follow the storyline of the original Being Human, so that’s exciting.
What do you think of Russell Tovey leaving Being Human?
