Canadian network Showcase has renewed their original drama series Lost Girl – which airs on Syfy in both the US and the UK – for a fifth season.
The speciality net, which is owned and operated by Shaw Media, has ordered a further 13 episodes, in line with the episode order for season four. Production on the fifth season is slated to commence in the Spring for a Fall 2014 premiere.
“Rooted in folklore and mythology, Lost Girl has inspired a passionate and dedicated fan following with its deeply engaging characters, richly imagined universe and boundary-pushing storylines,” said Barbara Williams, Senior Vice President of Content for Shaw Media. “We’re looking forward to season five building on the exciting and fantastical plotlines.”
Created by Michelle Lovretta, Lost Girl follows supernatural seductress Bo (Silk), a tough yet loveable Succubus who feeds off sexual energy. Since realizing she is part of the Fae, creatures of legend and folklore who live among humans, Bo has resisted choosing an allegiance to either the Dark or Light Fae clans. Instead, she has forged her own path between the human and Fae worlds, while embarking on a mission to unlock the secrets of her origin. The drama series is produced by Prodigy Pictures in association with Shaw Media and Showcase and stars Anna Silk, Kris Holden-Ried, Zoie Palmer, Rick Howland, K.C. Collins and Rachel Skarsten.
