BBC America Sets Premiere Dates For Outcasts And Bedlam

Ahead of Saturday’s sixth-season premiere of Doctor Who, BBC America announced debut dates for Outcasts and Bedlam.

A post-apocalyptic space opera, Outcasts centers on a group of pioneers who leave Earth to settle on another planet. It stars Eric Mabius (Ugly Betty), Liam Cunningham (Clash of the Titans), Hermione Norris (MI-5) and Jamie Bamber (Battlestar Galactica) in an eight-part story that “explores survival, sex, politics and the drive for power in a new post-Earth era.” The sci-fi drama premieres Saturday, June 18, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Bedlam, which stars Will Young (Skins), Charlotte Salt (The Tudors) and Joanna Page (Gavin & Stacey), is set in Bedlam Heights — an apartment building converted from a pre-Victorian lunatic asylum — whose residents experience the darker side of the building’s history as spirits return to reclaim what’s theirs and seek revenge. Bedlam premieres Saturday, Oct. 8, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

BBC America also announced that it will co-produce another season of Being Human.

    It was very disappointing to find out that they cancelled Outcasts. I wasted time watching yet another good show, that will never be properly finished. It was a very interesting as in storyline and characters. The main antagonist Julius was the best I’ve seen in awhile.
    I usually wait to see how dedicated the network and producers are to their product, before I watch the shows. I think I’m going to go back to that practice.

    Outcasts was fantastic. Rough opening but built up to become a very good show that gets canceled with a cliffhanger. Great cast, interesting plot twists and much better than “Earth 2″.

    Spolier Alert: It was a ship filled with nothing but clones of Scarlett Johansson. That is the way I like to remember the ending in my head.

    Outcasts was a good show..but the key word there is WAS. the only real hope is that BBC looks at figures in america and then decides to go for a second series…which they are not producing now. But then most of the stuff they actually run on BBC america is old stuff…not sure I would invest in it ..though it is fun! As long as you go in knowing it will end with things hanging…unless there are sudden overseas ratings
