Those of you in the U.S. may have heard that Syfy recently acquired the Canadian hit Lost Girl (maybe even because I told you). Today, Showcase has announced that the second is being extended by nine episodes, long before the September premiere.
That’s pretty interesting news for a show about a succubus. It was also announced that the show will be making its way to Comic-Con this year, with Anna Silk leading a panel discussion. It’s all very cool from where I sit, though I haven’t managed to catch this show, because there is some great television in Canada, and I’m happy to see any of it reaching down to us, however it does it. Plus, I like to see a network keeping an eye on the pulse of the show, and keeping the faith. An updated order before the second season airs is an interesting, unusual, and very cool move. Check out the full details below.
Currently in production for season two, Showcase orders up nine more episodes of the supernatural drama series, Lost Girl, in advance of the season premiere on Sunday, September 4th at 9pm ET, for an unprecedented 22 episodes in total.
Plus, Comic-Con fans are in for a treat as Lost Girl succubus, Bo (played by Anna Silk) leads a panel discussion at the highly regarded event along with Emmanuelle Vaugier who stars as “The Morrigan”, the leader of the Dark Fae. Joining Anna and Emmanuelle on Friday, July 22 at 7:30pm room 24 ABC are Executive Producer Jay Firestone (Prodigy Pictures) and Creator, Michelle Lovretta. A limited edition of the Lost Girl comic book, a prequel to the series, will be given out at this year’s Comic-Con panel.
Season one of Lost Girl premiered on Showcase in September 2010 with record-breaking audience numbers and continued to draw viewers in each week.
During its run in Fall 2010, the series ranked number one on the channel for adults 25-54 and was the top scripted series across all specialty channels.
This past May, Syfy acquired season one and two of Lost Girl.
Raised by human parents, Bo had no reason to believe she was anything other than the girl next door — until she “drained” her first boyfriend to death.
Bo has since hit the road alone and afraid. She discovers she is one of the Fae, creatures of legend and folklore, who pass as humans while feeding off them in secret, as they have for millennia. She is faced with choosing an allegiance between the Dark or Light Fae clans. Bo decides to take the middle path between humans and the Fae while embarking on a personal mission to unlock the secrets of her origin, protecting humans along the way.
Lost Girl co-stars Kris Holden-Ried as Dyson, a shape-shifting Fae, homicide detective and Bo’s love interest; Ksenia Solo as Kenzi, Bo’s human confidante and street-smart survivor; Zoie Palmer as Lauren, a human doctor who competes for Bo’s heart; Rick Howland as Trick, the mysterious owner and bartender at The Dal Riata tavern, with a secretive past that is yet to be unlocked, and K.C. Collins as Hale, a handsome male “Siren” who is the eternal bachelor, ultimate wingman and Dyson’s partner on the force.
