Syfy Sets Premiere Dates for Lost Girl's Final Season, Bitten, and New Drama Olympus

The time has come to start saying goodbye to Lost Girl

Syfy has announced a U.S. premiere date for the Canadian series' fifth and final season (no spoilers from you special people up north, pretty please!), so you can now go ahead and mark your calendars for Friday, April 17 at 10pm. That's when Season 5—which was expanded to 16 episodes and will air in two parts—will debut its first eight episodes, which will focus on Bo's (Anna Silk) attempts to rescue Kenzi (Ksenia Solo) from the underworld. And thank goodness, because as we all know, life with Kenzi is hardly worth living at all.

Also returning to Syfy on April 17 will be Canadian werewolf drama Bitten, which leads into Lost Girl with a two-hour Season 2 premiere from 8pm to 10pm. The series will then air in its regular 9pm timeslot beginning the following week, on April 24. In Season 2, Elena (Laura Vandervoort) and the Danvers pack will meet a coven of witches who could use their support. And if I get my way, Nick will be wearing his red pants in all 10 episodes.

Meanwhile, in "Syfy programming that's not imported from Canada" news, the network has also selected April to launch its newest original series, Olympus. A 13-episode mythological drama set in the world of humans, gods, and monsters, the series stars Matt Frewer (Orphan Black), Sonita Henry (The Fifth Element), Cas Anvar (Argo), and Graham Shiels (Guardians of the Galaxy) and "captures the dangerous courage of a few brave men and women who banished the gods to the realm of the unconscious," a.k.a. the underworld. Olympus will bow Thursday, April 2 at 10pm.


Are you sad to know this is the beginning of the end for Lost Girl? Where do you stand on Nick's pants in Bitten? And will you watch Olympus

If it ends on S5 E8, then it was a terrible ending. So much unanswered. It looked like a war was going to start and it just end there. I’m very disappointed on how this ended. It was actually a really good show.

As stated, the final 5th season is 16 episodes long, airing in 2 parts. The 8th episode was the mid-season finale only.

LOST GIRL leaving !!!! Witches of east end was cut and thankfully people reached out by signing a petition... Are y'all crazy?!!
I love Lost Girl and all the characters. It's an intriguing tv show and I swear every single time Bad ass shows come on y'all go and pull the dam plug on it . I gave up on watching seasoned shows for several years just because when I get into the shows just as other people like I said: y'all pull the plug. You and every other tv station who keeps doing this will lose in then end because people are and have grown so freaking tired of that, they say as well as I say what's the purpose when they will cut it. so TV ratings will platoe and for long everyone of you will have to start shutting down your channels and their goes your pay check. Y'all are ridiculous and I'm feeding up ..........

The TV viewing part of me will be DEVASTATED without Lost Girl!
(although not as much as if it had ended a few seasons back before it got a tad - confused- but even a confused Lost Girl is better than almost anything else on the dial-
Hope they bring back Kenzi, why couldnt it have been Lauren shoved into oblivion?!

I am still not happy that they have decided to cxl the Lost Girl series. i guess that all the fans opinions really do not matter. it makes me sad. some people might think what is the big deal it is just a tv show. however, there are people out there that do not get to travel, or go out to movies, restaurants and stuff like that. so show like this really help they let you forget the stress of life itself. they let you pretend for a while. the show is really popular and it doesn't seem logical to cxl a popular show. there are so many out there that deserve to be cxl'd that aren't. i have even written to the show producers themselves with no response. what do you all think. please respond. thank you

The TV universe was setup for me to lose A LOT of money. If somebody offered to bet me that Bitten would be renewed for a 2nd season, I'd have taken out a 2nd mortgage because that was going to be the easiest money I ever made.

It's already airing in Canada and my God, it's even more ridiculous than the first season. It was BAD in year one, I didn't think it possible to be worse.

On the up side, it makes for some good hate watching and joins The Following as a contender to Under the Dome for most absurd show on TV.

Television quality being subjective, I would have agreed with you when I first heard about The 100. Now, having watched through two seasons, I think it's easily one of the best shows on any non premium network.

In every possible facet of program making, The 100 is light years ahead of anything I listed.

i admit that the reason i dislike the 100 is because of the show that it replaces (tomorrow people) , i know it wasn't perfect but i think it could have been . and now every time i watch the 100 i just think of how without it , tomorrow people would have got at least one more season lol
I probably will give it another go at some point i think i had also gotten sick of shows being cancelled half way through a storyline (mainly Alphas) in the uk we don't really have that happen to shows , so i do get annoyed lol

Tomorrow People was like the illegitimate love child of Jumper & Push, which is cool. Every TV rotation needs its popcorn, but there was just too much on CW. Something had to go and two shows needed axing.

BUT, if you want to be upset with a show for taking The Tomorrow People's spot, it's Beauty & the Beast which incomprehensibly got renewed.

I appreciate hard feelings towards shows and networks because of premature cancellations (I've got plenty myself), but The 100 is easily the best show on CW and in the conversation for best show on cable.

Even if it was a choice between The 100 and Tomorrow People, it would be tough to choose the latter. I enjoyed TTP, but it really can't compete IMO

I hope the final season of Lost Girl goes back to the fun and games it was in the first couple of seasons... More Kenzi, Bo & Dyson... potentially Tamsin and Vex... and if Hale could be made undead? Less Lauren please, she is a total bore...

I'm already watching bitten and all I'll say is WOW season 1 was good but season 2 so far is great the addition of witches especially these one was a very smart move it's darker in a lot of ways and it's great. Same with lost girl so far so good there was a moment of pure gold in the first or second episode back which just made smile soooooo much no spoilers but it involves Kenzi, Bo and TAMSIN

"Syfy programming not imported from Canada"
Olympus is from Canada. It's a Canadian company:

And Matt Frewer, Cas Anvar and Graham Shields are all from Canada (which should have been the tip-off).

Lost Girl went off the rails S4 and this one still felt struggling to me - no spoilers. When Kenzi was in it it was better imo. Kaitlin, surely you meant that above. Grrr! Ah, the ep with her dancing in those routines and outfits. *Bliss*.
Bitten has really found its feet more in this latest run, with more of daddy bad wolf back and the witches arc. Both creepily good.
Olympus can only be filled with CGI that the channel (can't bring myself to use that name) still can't afford adequately. You know it's going to be dodgy, but dodgy in a good way..?

Yeah! I honestly hope Lost Girl feels at least a little more coherent. I'm still a little confused over things from last season.

I am so happy that the coven of witches is coming! I read the books, to a point, I think the last one I read was just from Hope's perspective (I was getting kind of annoyed, I sort of wanted to stick with books from Elena, Paige and I could deal with Eve and I might have stuck through to get to the Savannah ones, but, I was kind of like, wait, I was supposed to care about that random reporter girl? I'm not even sure that was her name), and the witches are interesting - well, once something happens to shrug off the junior league mentality.

I won't go into spoilers, I'll just say that while I am not a huge fan of this season of Lost Girl, it is much MUCH better than last one since it is at least clear what's going on.

I agree with you, last season had me completely baffled who was what with whom against whom.

Yeah, I'm still confused as to Bo's change of heart in relation to Rainier. Like there was one episode where I swear there was an important set of scenes left on the cutting room floor. Overall, it took me out of Kenzi's sacrifice because for once it wasn't obvious but it went too far in the other direction. I always sort of wondered if SyFy (the channel I watch it on) had just like forgotten a whole episode.

I felt the same way! Even though Hope and Karl were in it I still couldn't get through it. I've only read just less than half of that book (No Humans Involved) and carried on with the rest. I can't see them doing all 13 books though.

Yeah, I figure they stop before they get to the Eve POV one (spoiler.....


ghosts and all might be too much). I'm not even sure how much they get into the warlock/witch issues (I love Lucas and Paige and as the warlocks are behind the kidnappings or at least involved, I think we will since Elena backs Paige and, well, you and I know who Savannah's, who I know is in the season 2, father is). I just worry we don't get to Lucas yet because they shortened this season to ten episodes and this is all Stolen and probably a minor touch of Dime Store Magic (probably just the beginning).

I have watched 3 episodes of Bitten second season and is better than the first season, Paige, Savannah and another witch are there. The pack and the coven join againts a common enemy... not saying anything more to not spoil.

I think I remember (read the books a long time ago). I just wonder if they could do all of Stolen in a half season and at least flush out the bad guy which I know leads to Eve but it also gets Lucas you be around.

so Lost Girl is getting split in the US too? kind of weird.. it's already months and months behind Canada and it's currently on it's break there. seems like they could just air it straight through if it comes back in Canada by then.

s1 of Bitten was way too drawn out but s2 was shortened to 10 episodes so maybe it'll make the storytelling more compact. adding in characters from the rest of the books (which is what I assume they're doing) could grow the universe into being more interesting.

Olympus sounds interested so I'll check it out.

I'm very interested with Olympus since I cannot honestly think of a single show that has done Greek Mythology some justice since Xena: The Warrior Princess and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys.

Valentine used Greek gods. Sleepy Hollow had a gorgon. And Supernatural has referenced it once or twice. And of course there's Atlantis. But HErcules probably did the best with it.

Well to be fair, Supernatural was leaning way more towards Roman deities at all times. Never seen Valentine thought. I really do think Hercules had a certain old school feel about it, and yet they still managed to nail it!

Well I was thinking more since Homer but you do have a point. Xena's dealings with Aphrodite and Ares (RIP Kevin Smith) went beyond the usual comic book level treatment (all hail Sam Raimi, and Bruce Campbell certainly didn't hurt). But the richest Greek mythology isn't so much the deities as the humans and monsters - Perseus, Jason, Medea, Theseus, Achilles, Odysseus, Cyclops, Gorgons, Hydras, Minotaurs, Centaurs etc. BBC's Atlantis takes a lot of liberties with the same material but is also fairly faithful to the heroic tradition...

I think the problem with Atlantis was that it was called at Atlantis, if they wanted to do a show on Atlantis they should have stuck to the myths and legends of Atlantis, read what pluto wrote it a great story and would make a great tv show with the right writers. .

If they wanted to do a show which introduce Greece myths to a new generation of audience then they should have done that. I thought the CGI was fine.

Couldn't agree more. Sadly the low budget given to Atlantis did bring it down quite a bit since most of the mythological creatures do require quite a bit of good CGI. I mean the minotaur in the early episodes was just awfully done.

I still enjoyed season 1, but it really just introduced the characters. Those relationships are solid now. So the show focuses on the new threats and expanded mythology. So I'd say it's a huge improvement.

It also helps to remember that this is a small budget production. So they're doing an excellent job working with what they have. Once Upon a Time is a hit show on a popular US network & the CGI is pretty bad. Bitten is much better imo.
