Toby Whithouse on possibility of ‘Being Human’ return

Posted Filed under

Being Human creator Toby Whithouse has revealed that he’d only bring back the show if he had a “stunning and revolutionary idea”.

The supernatural comedy-drama launched on BBC Three in 2008 and the fifth season concluded in 2013.

Whithouse told BBC Writersroom: “We all know shows that have outstayed their welcome, or been cynically resurrected. And no one would thank me – least of all the Being Human fans – if I went back with anything other than a stunning and revolutionary idea.”

He added: “Anything less would demean the show. And I haven’t had that idea.”
