Lost Girl: Renewed for Season Five

Lost Girl season fiveSyfy is still airing the fourth season of Lost Girl but the series has been renewed for a fifth season of 13 episodes in Canada where it’s produced. While the US cable channel hasn’t made an announcement yet, it’s expected that season five will air here in the states as well.

Here’s the press release from Showcase:

Showcase has greenlit a fifth season of its hit Canadian original series, Lost Girl for 13 episodes. The homegrown hit series starring Anna Silk begins production on season five this spring and is set to air Fall 2014.

Since premiering in 2010, Lost Girl has solidified itself as a ratings powerhouse for Showcase. Season four was the #1 ranked program on the channel across multiple key demos and ranked in the Top 20 of all Canadian Specialty Programs for Fall 2013 (A25-54 and W25-54, excluding sports)*. It continues to rank in the Top 20 of all Canadian Specialty Programs (A25-54) in Winter/Spring 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 (The Tudors, Underworld: Awakening) as Light Fae shape-shifter Dyson, Zoie Palmer (The Guard, Instant Star) as human doctor Lauren, Rick Howland (Billable Hours, Murdoch Mysteries) as Bo’s ancient and secretive grandfather Trick and Rachel Skarsten (The Vow, Flashpoint) as Valkyrie warrior Tamsin. Returning guest stars include Paul Amos (Sex After Kids, Murdoch Mysteries) and Emmanuelle Vaugier (Two and a Half Men, Covert Affairs).

Lost Girl was developed by Prodigy Pictures, in association with Shaw Media and Showcase. Executive Producers are Jay Firestone, Vanessa Piazza and Michael Grassi.

Lost Girl is produced with the participation of the Canadian Media Fund created by the Government of Canada and the Canadian cable industry, and with the assistance of the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit and the Ontario Film and Television Tax Credit Program.

    I like lost girl and would like to know if there is a season 5. This is one of three show I watch Haven is another and sanctuary was the other one. So please keep this show on and try and find another one that I could like.

    Can the show move on from the love triangle? I would like to see Bo have different relationships besides Lauren and Dyson. I loved that LInda Hamilton supports the show and hopefully we will see her again.

  3. Bj Johnson says

    I love lost girl and I hope that the story continues beyond season 5. I can’t get enough of the cast especially Bo, Kenzi, Tamsin Dyson, Vex and the Morrigan. I hope that they bring Kenzi back because Bo will always need her by her side no matter what.

    Hey, why wasn’t Ksenia Solo mentioned? She is an important part of the show.

    I am glad that the show has been renewed. I like the genre and idea that something/someone inherently supposed to be evil like a succubus would choose not to be.

    I came across this show by accident, and have stayed with it since then. I am a fan and was hoping that it wold get another season. Thanks goodness it is not on one of the three major networks run by idiots. Way to go SYFY
