TORONTO (December 9, 2015) – After gallons of blood spilled, hundreds of shirts ripped, and countless Muttsslain, Space confirmed today that its hit original series BITTEN returns for its third and final season February 12 in a new Fridays at 10 p.m. ET timeslot. Iconic genre star Laura Vandervoort (SMALLVILLE, Ted) returns to helm the sexy thriller as the embattled Elena Michaels, the world’s only female werewolf. Season 3 of the 10-episode, one-hour series delves into the theme of duty versus family, and the lengths one will go to keep both intact. Space also revealed today a chilling sneak peek at Season 3 of BITTEN.
Season 3 picks up several months after the harrowing battle in the Season 2 finale. Bolstering their ranks in the wake of the carnage The Pack is on the hunt for a dangerous group of traitorous Mutts lead by former Spanish Alpha, Eduardo Escobado (Mishka Thébaud, SAVING HOPE). Meanwhile, Elena struggles with Pack Alpha Jeremy Danvers’ (Greg Bryk, A History Of Violence, THE BOOK OF NEGROES) new draconian leadership style, and makes a shocking and surprising discovery about herself.
“With the incomparable Laura Vandervoort at the helm, BITTEN was a ferocious drama from the get-go and we are so proud to have seen it make its mark in the television landscape from its home on Space,” said Tracey Pearce, Senior Vice-President, Specialty and Pay, Bell Media. “Along with the many devoted fans, we cannot wait to see what happens with Elena and the rest of The Pack as the BITTEN saga finally culminates in Season 3.”
“We are grateful to our broadcast partners at Space for three seasons of support,” said Executive Producer and Director, J.B.

“Alongside J.B., the entire cast and crew and our incredible broadcast partners, we are excited to deliver this powerful upcoming season to the show’s loyal fans who are chomping at the bit for more,” said John Morayniss, CEO, eOne Television.

But, when an unknown werewolf sniper takes a shot at the Alpha, The Pack must adjust course to track down those responsible. Meanwhile, Elena is accosted by a mysterious stranger who challenges her with a shocking claim.
Season 3 of BITTEN also sees the return of Pack members Clayton Danvers (Greyston Holt, ALCATRAZ, DURHAM COUNTY) and Nick Sorrentino (Steve Lund, BEING ERICA, HAVEN).
