Well, there’s a much bigger audience for this news than there was when I mentioned that the second of Lost Girl was coming, so hopefully there are a lot of you out there that are glad to hear that Season 3 is getting underway.
It’s timely news as well, now that Syfy kicked off Eureka! last night, which hopefully gave Lost Girl even more of a boost. It’s also timely, because I know there are some folks out there who started to wonder when Syfy began talking about Season 2 of a rebroadcast show that didn’t actually have a Season 3 yet.
I love Syfy for airing the show, but it’s tricky for some fans who may find themselves unsure how much they want to invest in a show, when the network you’re watching it on isn’t really in control of what happens.
At any rate, while it’s fun to throw out some general good news at American audiences, this is really Canada’s good news for the moment, and the hit show promises to show us a side of Bo we haven’t seen before.
Check the full release below.
Prodigy Pictures, in association with Shaw Media, announces start of principle photography on the third season of Lost Girl. Production will take place in studio and on location in Toronto.
After becoming a supernatural success in its first season, Lost Girl returned to Showcase with a stellar sophomore season heating up winter as the channel’s #1 ranking program.* Kicking it up a notch for season two, Lost Girl had its first-ever Pre-Show that aired before the phenomenal finale. Owning the #1 spot, the season two finale rated highest amongst all Specialty programming for the night winning all key demographics.**
Slated to premiere on Showcase this fall, season three promises more twists and turns for TV’s favourite succubus, “Bo” (Anna Silk: Being Erica, Billable Hours). This season sees Bo make a romantic choice, but finds the road to commitment riddled with obstacles. Throughout the season, unexpected jeopardy stalks Bo and those she cares about. Though Bo battles many foes, her greatest enemy will prove to be the one that resides within her.
Returning for season three is Kris Holden-Ried (Ben Hur, The Tudors, Underworld 4) as “Dyson”; Ksenia Solo (Life Unexpected; Black Swan) as “Kenzi”; Zoie Palmer (The Guard, Instant Star, XIII) as “Lauren”; Rick Howland (Billable Hours, Murdoch Mysteries) as “Trick” and K.C. Collins (Owning Mahowny, Doomstown) as “Hale”.
Joining the Lost Girl cast this season is (Rachel Skarsten: The Vow; Flashpoint; Birds of Prey) in a recurring role as “Tamsin”, a thrill-seeking, sexy new Fae who ruffles many feathers. Emmanuelle Vaugier (Two and a Half Men, Covert Affairs, Human Target) will reprise her role as “The Morrigan”, the leader of the Dark Fae.
“We’re really looking forward to delivering another electrifying season,” said Jay Firestone, Executive Producer. “Viewers will see a side of Bo that they haven’t seen before.”
