Being Human

Syfy's addictive remake of the British hit Being Human returns for Season 2 tonight and things have gotten even trickier for the paranormal roomies now that big bad Bishop has been beheaded. "It gets dark fast," says Sam Witwer, whose 200-hundred-year-old vampire, Aidan, finds himself struggling to keep Boston's bloodsucking community under control without a leader, along with some of his own uglier instincts. "He's completely submersed in the vampire world and his old reflexes begin to re-emerge," Witwer continues, teasing that we'll get to see what Aidan — who now subsists on bags of blood from his job at the hospital — was like back when he was a "calculating, efficient killer" once a woman from his long-ago past resurfaces.

If that's not ominous enough, his werewolf buddy Josh (Sam Huntington) must face a harrowing situation with his girlfriend Nora (Kristen Hager), who may or may not be infected with the same lycanthrope curse he carries. "The way it's being played is almost like a metaphor to giving someone you love [HIV]," explains Witwer.

As for the fairer member of our creepy trio, Witwer reveals that ghost hottie Sally (Meaghan Rath) is in for a chilling change after she reconnects with some fellow phantoms at her high-school reunion. "What starts off as this cute high-school reunion story turns very [grim] later on and we get to see sides to Sally we never knew about...things we didn't know she was capable of." Sounds scary good!

Being Human airs Mondays at 9/8c on Syfy.
