Syfy hopes the succubus will be the next supernatural craze as the cable network has acquired Lost Girl, a Canadian series starring Anna Silk as a demon seductress who feeds off sexual energy.
Syfy has picked up two seasons — 26 episodes — of the series, which was developed and produced by Prodigy Pictures and premiered on Canada’s Showcase Television in September 2010.
Dale (The Ghost Whisperer) stars as Bo, a bisexual succubus forced to chose between humans and the supernatural who instead opts to take the middle road and protect others while exploring the secrets of her origin.
“In one year, Lost Girl has electrified viewers in Canada and around the world,” said Thomas Vitale, executive vp programming and original movies at Syfy. “We’re delighted to bring this fascinating, high-octane series, which depicts a unique world and memorable heroine, to the Syfy audience.”
The series, which is currently in production on Season 2, hails from Prodigy Pictures, in association with Shaw Media and Showcase.
