In The Flesh And Being Human Get Summer Premiere Dates On BBC America
Following BBC America’s premiere of Orphan Black as part of the Supernatural Saturday lineup, the network has announced this summer’s Supernatural Saturday premieres. This includes the final season of Being Human and a BBC drama production co-produced by BBC America called In the Flesh.
Being Human returns to the schedule first, hitting the network on June 8 at 10 p.m. ET. The fifth season of the series will follow ghost Alex, werewolf Tom, and vampire Hal as they deal with problems as mundane as cleaning the house and taking on new jobs, as well as more exciting stuff with supernatural government agencies and the like. When the BBC announced that Season 5 would be the show’s last back in February, the network promised an “apocalyptic end,” which is good news for fans of the series.
In the Flesh will hit the schedule a few weeks later, on August 3 at 10 p.m. ET. As the title sort-of implies, that series follows a teenaged zombie who gets reintegrated back into normal, non-infected society after the disease takes hold. That premise has a few similarities to the recent theatrical release, Warm Bodies, but it also seems a whole lot less comedic, with months of medication and rehabilitation thrown in. If you want to see what In the Flesh is about, you can check out the trailer for the series. With the success of shows like The Walking Dead and movies like Zombieland and Warm Bodies, it seems like BBC America is hoping for a pieces of the zombie pie.
Stay tuned for more news on BBC America’s summer premieres.
