Canada's Showcase has greenlit a fifth season of the Toronto-lensed supernatural series "Lost Girl" for 13 episodes. Starring Anna Silk, production starts on Season Five Spring 2014, set to air Fall 2014.
"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, Content, Shaw Media.
"We’re looking forward to season five building on the exciting and fantastical plotlines."
"...'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.
"Throughout the fourth season Bo was plagued by memory loss that left her with more questions than answers, especially upon learning of her inexplicable decision to officially join the Dark Fae.
"The season's emotional journey exposed Bo and her friends to new loves, heartbreaking losses and shocking betrayals, all leading to the season finale that saw her battle a darkness within herself..."
Also returning to the cast are series stars Kris Holden-Ried as Light Fae shape-shifter 'Dyson', Zoie Palmer as human doctor 'Lauren', Rick Howland as Bo's ancient and secretive grandfather 'Trick' and Rachel Skarsten as 'Valkyrie' warrior 'Tamsin'. Returning guest stars include Paul Amos and Emmanuelle Vaugier.
"Lost Girl" was developed by Prodigy Pictures, in association with Shaw Media and Showcase. Executive Producers are Jay Firestone, Vanessa Piazza and Michael Grassi.
