Hiatus Helper: Kristen Hager Talks Season Four of Syfy’s Being Human [INTERVIEW and PHOTOS]
[WARNING: Spoilers for Being Human season four]
Syfy’s Being Human is months away from debuting season four. Yes, we have to wait until early 2014 to get any new episodes. But that’s okay. We’re here to help. For this Hiatus Helper, we talked to Kristen Hager [Nora] earlier this summer at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con where she teased what’s going down next year for reporters, writers and bloggers.
On it being hard to top the amazing season three
KRISTEN HAGER: Honestly, I’ve seen the outlines for the first four episodes. So beyond that I don’t know what’s going to happen. I agree that it’ll be hard to top but, already from what I know of season four, I think I can talk about the fact that the theme this year is destiny, and how everything happens for a reason, and we’ll really go back to what worked so well in season one, which was the camaraderie between these roommates. And we’ll go back and sort of explore everyone’s storylines and how we all ended up here together and why we’re all sort of meant to be together. The reason the show is so great is because when the main characters are interacting with one another — that makes the show so strong and there’s going to be so much of that this season. There are really some special storylines that are gonna happen. And there’s also some characters that are from our pasts that I can say most likely will be back.
Married life for Nora and Josh
KRISTEN: Basically season four starts off three months after season three ended. And I know that I’m allowed to say that Josh has been trapped as a werewolf. That’s the big — that’s our newest conflict to overcome. And so we really haven’t had time to be together. Basically Nora and Josh see each other for a half ‘n hour every full moon because he’s stuck as a wolf all month and then when it’s a full moon he’ll convert back to human form — conveniently when I transform into a wolf. So we have this half ‘n hour together. So I think our entire married life has added up to being like an hour and a half. So needless to say I think things are the most difficult they’ve ever been for Nora and Josh. So I’m very much willing to do whatever it takes to figure out how to get him back. So married life — hopefully they’re gonna actually be able to experience life together as a married couple.
On Nora turning to Aiden during this time
KRISTEN: That’s another fantastic plot point. Especially after I was hated so much in season three. I got the meanest tweets from people so angry with Nora. And even I, like when I first read the scripts, I was like ‘I can’t say this. People are gonna hate me!’ And so I’m very happy to say that Aiden and are BFFs. We’ve had some time. We’ve had the three months together just the two of us struggling to try to figure out how to get Josh back and also still — Sally’s missing — wondering where she is so –Â we’ve definitely had time to get to know each other. So yeah, Aiden and Nora are in a very good place in season four, which is great.
Being Human returns to Syfy in Jan. 2014.
