Good news for fans of the Canadian supernatural drama 'Lost Girl:' Syfy has re-upped their order of the series, renewing the show for a fourth season of thirteen episodes.
'Lost Girl,' which debuted on the Canadian network Showcase in 2010, was picked up by the American network Syfy and became an immediate hit. The production specifically delayed the debut of the third season so that Canadian, American and Australian audiences (or anyone watching online around the world) could watch new episodes at the same time, rather than try to prevent spoilers from up north (ala the hit British series 'Downton Abbey,' which airs in the UK well in advance of the American PBS episodes). Now that 'Lost Girl' fans are united, the show has only grown in popularity.
The current third season, which concludes next month, is averaging 1.3 million viewers on Syfy, including meaty chunks of a key demographic. The series stars Anna Silk, a Canadian actress who received her big break with the role; prior to 'Lost Girl,' Silk was best known to Canadian audiences for her appearance as a flight attendant in a Nicoderm commercial. Now, Silk is an international sensation, receiving invitations to appear at popular culture conventions oceans away.
'Lost Girl' stars Silk as Bo, a succubus who grew up in a human family, unaware of her supernatural nature and of the underworld of mystical beings living amongst us every day. Her succubus powers only become apparent to her when she accidentally kills her first love by draining him of his life energy, an act which forces her to flee her home. Bo exchanges her previously normal life for one without family or friends, moving from place to place whenever she kills again.
