BBC promises more Supernatural Saturdays this summer

Last Saturday, BBC America’s (http://www.bbcamerica.com) "Supernatural Saturday" kicked off with the return of Doctor Who and the premieres of Orphan Black and The Nerdist. Geeks rejoiced and united and trended the line-up #1 in social media and provided the channel with one of its biggest nights ever.

The good news is, when these shows end their seasons, two new shows will continue the Supernatural Saturday thrill ride. BBC America just announced in a press release that "the channel will premiere new co-production In The Flesh and the final season of the hit original Being Human series this summer as part of Supernatural Saturday."

As we previously reported, the three-part drama In the Flesh -- created and written by Dominic Mitchell -- is set "after a zombie uprising where treated zombies are rehabilitated back into society." In the Flesh premieres on Aug. 3 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

We’re obviously big fans of vampires, ghosts, and werewolves. As such, we're looking forward to the U.S. premiere of BBC America’s Being Human on June 8 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. This is the final season of the show, with ghost Alex (Kate Bracken) werewolf Tom (Michael Socha), and vampire Hal (Damien Molony) still trying to fit into our human world:

So fear not, our geek lust will be satisfied during the warmer months ... cheers to you, BBC America!
