Lost Girl is a new Canadian series that started airing on the Showcase Television network on September 12 of this year and in the short time that it has been on the air it has created not only created a fan frenzy on the net but has also performed quite well in the ratings, becoming the highest-rated Canadian scripted series premiere of all time on Showcase.
Unfortunately, the series is currently not available on any cable or major network here in the States nor does it seem to be airing anywhere else, save Canada. But promo clips and fan videos can be seen at You Tube and, for now, the episodes can be viewed online here and here.
The series follows the life of Bo (Anna Silk from Being Erica), a succubus, who grew up in an adopted human family, unaware of her non-human nature or of the “Fae” (supernatural being) world. A succubus is a female Fae that feeds on sexual energy, sometimes with fatal results for humans. Bo’s powers only became apparent to her when she killed her first love, forcing her to flee her home.
As the first season of this supernatural series progresses, Bo is investigating the Fae world, learning to control her powers and developing romantic relationships with both Dyson (Kris Holden-Ried from The Tudors), who just happens to be a police detective and werewolf as well as a human doctor named Lauren (Zoie Palmer from The Guard). She is also searching for her biological mother in order to learn why she was abandoned. She also works with her dedicated “sidekick” Kenzi (Ksenia Solo from Life Unexpected), a “reformed” pick-pocket, running a private investigation service.
Leading up to the season finale, five cast members will participate in a Twitter event where they take over the Lost Girl Twitter page for a Q&A session with the fans. Up first is Zoie Palmer (Dr. Lauren) on December 6, then K. C. Collins (Hale) on December 7, followed by Rick Howland (Trick) on December 8 and then Kris Holden-Ried (Dyson) and Anna Silk (Bo) on December 9 and December 10 respectively.
If you live in Canada, you can catch up on the series via the show’s website here and watch the season finale on Sunday, December 12, at 9pm EST.
The show is slated to return in the fall of 2011 with a 13-episode second season. Lost Girl was created by Michelle Lovretta (Instant Star and Sorority Wars).
