Canada's Space Renews 'Bitten' for Second Season

TORONTO– Canada's Space has renewed the sci-fi series Bitten for a second season.
The Canadian cable sci-fi channel has ordered another 10 episodes of the Laura Vandervoort-starring series from No Equal Entertainment, Entertainment One Television and Hoodwink Entertainment. Though no official announcement has been made, a source tells The Hollywood Reporter that Syfy will likely air the second season stateside.
Production on the new episodes of Bitten will resume this summer in Toronto and Hamilton, Ontario.
The Canadian drama is based on the novels by Kelley Armstrong, and also stars Greg Bryk, Greyston Holt and Steve Lund.
Bitten follows Elena (Vandervoort) as she attempts to escape a world she never wanted to be part of (as well as the man who turned her into a werewolf), abandoning her pack and taking refuge in a new city, where she works as a photographer and hides her werewolf existence from her boyfriend.
When bodies begin turning up in her pack's backyard, she finds herself back at Stonehaven, the werewolves' ancestral domain, where she will stop at nothing to defend her pack.
Bitten is executive produced by J.B. Sugar, John Barbisan, Patrick Banister, Tecca Crosby, John Morayniss and Margaret O’Brien, with Daegan Fryklind on board as showrunner.
eOne is the worldwide distributor for the series.
