The uncertantly did not last long however, as just moments after the broadcast, BBC Three's Twitter account announced:
"**EXCITING NEWS** #BeingHuman WILL return for a fifth series!! (sic)"
Moments later, the show's official twitter page confirmed the news again, tweeting:
"There will be a 5th series of #beinghuman - how bloody amazing! Happy dance!"
However, the news was not all sweet. Show creator Toby Whithouse has since confirmed that actress Lenora Crichlow, Being Human's only original cast member, would not be returing.
"Sometimes, you have to just respect that a story [and] a character has come to a natural end. Lenora completely understood that and completely agreed with it."
Series 5 will consist of 6 episodes set for transmission in 2013.
