BBC America announced today debut dates for the final season of Being Human and the new zombie mini-series In The Flesh later this year. Both shows will be part of the channel’s Supernatural Saturday block. Still full of vampires, ghosts and werewolves, Season 5 of Being Human will start on June 8 at 10 PM. A Doctor Who and Torchwood alumnus, Toby Whitehouse is the head writer of Being Human with Polly Buckle producing the show’s final season. Being Human is produced by Touchpaper Wales, a Zodiak Media Company, for BBC Cymru Wales and BBC America. As one Beeb show ends, another begins, at least for the short term. The three-part In The Flesh premieres on August 3 at 10 PM. The mini-series drama deals with zombies being reintegrated into their living families and communities. Now called PDS (Partially Deceased Syndrome) sufferers, zombie teenager Kieren Walker is dealing with the same problems fitting in as his living peers, plus a whole lot more scarier issues. In The Flesh is a co-production between BBC Drama Production North and BBC America. Jonny Campbell directs with Ann Harrison-Baxter producing and Hilary Martin as executive producer
