Last year I wrote about a Canadian show titled Lost Girl which follows the life of Bo the succubus and the werewolf detective Dyson. I haven’t heard much more about the show since then because it is only being shown in Canada and not here in the US. However, pretty soon we’ll be hearing all about it. Why? Because SyFy has picked up the ongoing show and plans on airing it in the US! Yay more werewolves for us!
According to the official Lost Girl website:
“Lost Girl follows supernatural seductress Bo, a Succubus who feeds on the sexual energy of humans. Growing up with human parents, Bo had no reason to believe she was anything other than the girl next door — until she drained her boyfriend to death in their first sexual encounter. Now she has 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 secretly and in different ways, as they have for millennia. Relieved yet horrified to find out that she is not alone, Bo decides to take the middle path between the humans and the Fae while embarking on a personal mission to unlock the secrets of her origin.
With the help of her human sidekick, Kenzi, and Dyson, a sexy police detective, Bo takes on a challenge every week helping a Fae or human client who comes to her to solve a mystery, or to right a wrong.”
Syfy has picked up the two seasons (26 episodes) of Lost Girl, which was developed and produced by Prodigy Pictures and premiered on Canada’s Showcase Television in September 2010.
“In one year, Lost Girl has electrified viewers in Canada and around the world,” said Thomas Vitale, executive vp programming and original movies at Syfy. “We’re delighted to bring this fascinating, high-octane series, which depicts a unique world and memorable heroine, to the Syfy audience.”
What do you guys think of SyFy’s upcoming show? Have you already watched Lost Girl? If not, will you start once it hits SyFy?
