EXCLUSIVE: Bo, Kenzi and co will be making another stop in the UK. I’ve just learned that Syfy UK has closed a deal to acquire the exclusive first run UK broadcast rights to the fourth season of Canadian sci-fi drama Lost Girl. The show’s fourth season, which recently began airing in Canada on Showcase, is set to premiere on Syfy UK in mid-January.
Created by Michelle Lovretta, Lost Girl follows Bo, a Succubus who feeds off of human sexual energy. Bo learns that she is part of a species known as the Fae (creatures that have only been heard of through fairy tales and horror stories). Having learned of her true lineage Bo is faced with a choice, she must choose to ally herself with one of the two clans of Fae; Light or Dark. Bo chooses not to ally herself with either and instead opts to tread a fine line between the two. She quickly partners up with a human named Kenzi and the two operate as private investigators determined to help and protect both Human and Fae, while she tries to unlock the secrets of her heritage and discover who she really is. The drama series is produced by Prodigy Pictures in association with Shaw Media and Showcase and stars Anna Silk, Kris Holden-Ried, Ksenia Solo, Zoie Palmer, Rick Howland and K.C. Collins.
The pick up of Lost Girl‘s fourth season comes after the show’s third season pulled in an average audience of 0.12 million viewers; placing above the channel’s slot-average but below the average audience for the show’s second season (0.22 million viewers). This deal for Lost Girl season four also comes after Syfy UK picked up the subsequent seasons of most of their first run programming; including Defiance season 2, Warehouse 13 season 5 and Haven season 4 – which is currently airing on the pay TV channel.
