Being Human
SPOILER ALERT. Well someone’s let the cat out of the bag. In an interview promoting “Him and Her” actor Russell Tovey revealed that he’s left the original UK “Being Human” which will air its fourth season early next year. It’s likely his character will be killed off sometime during the upcoming season.

“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 [with Peter Jackson] and going on without him on this fourth series felt strange.” However he says the show can definitely go on and on without him. [Source: The Guardian]
