About Lost Girl
Lost Girl is a Canadian-produced television show that premiered on Showcase, a specialty channel in Canada, on September 12, 2010. It was the highest-rated Canadian scripted series premiere of all time on Showcase. Lost Girl is filmed in Toronto and airs on Sundays at 9 pm on Showcase.
Created by Michelle Lovretta, Lost Girl centres around Bo, who is part of a society of supernatural beings called The Fae. Specifically, Bo is a Succubus, who feeds off the sexual energy of others. Having been raised by human adoptive parents, Bo’s true nature was unbeknownst to her until she was found out by The Fae after a kill. Upon discovering her true identity in Season 1 as well as the existence of The Fae, Bo refused to choose between the Light and Dark Fae and has been steadfast in her decision to remain unaligned.
The show also features Kenzi, Bo’s street-smart sidekick whom she encounters in the pilot episode, Dyson, a shape-shifter who belongs to the Light Fae but works in the human world as a Detective, Lauren, a human doctor who serves the Light Fae, Hale, a Siren who is Dyson’s partner on the force, and lastly, Trick, the former Blood King who now owns and bartends at the Dal Riata.
The first season of Lost Girl had 13 episodes, and was met with impressive ratings. The show ranked number one on the channel for adults 25-54 and was the top scripted series across all specialty channels for that age group. The second season has averaged close to 400,000 viewers to date, with an unprecedented 22 episodes being produced. In December 2011, Showcase announced that Lost Girl has been renewed for Season 3, which will begin production in Spring of 2012.
Lost Girl was picked up by the Syfy network in the summer of 2011 and has since premiered in countries including the UK and Australia. The show is set to premiere in the U.S. on January 16, 2012.
