This bit of news isn’t exactly all about Aidan, but definitely related. Russell Tovey of Being Human has revealed that he, too, will be leaving the popular supernatural drama after the end of season 4. His character of George, the werewolf, will be written out of the series. In an interview by The Guardian Russell says, “Well, I’ve actually left Being Human but no one [outside of the show] knows yet. Aidan‘s left to film The Hobbit in New Zealand…and going on without him in this fourth season felt strange.” Russell plans to continue his work on the romantic comedy series Him and Her.
With the departure of Aidan Turner as the vampire, Mitchell, still fresh on everyone’s mind, and now Tovey (as George) being gone… it’s hard to imagine Being Human going on to a fifth season. In the beginning there were the three… then there were only two. And now? Is it going to be a ghost of a series?
