Lost Girl is a Canadian supernatural crime drama television series that premiered on Showcase on September 12, 2010.[1] The series was created by Michelle Lovretta[2] and is produced by Jay Firestone[3] and Prodigy Pictures Inc.,[4] with the participation of the Canadian Television Fund (Canada Media Fund) – a not-for-profit partnership between the Government of Canada and the Canadian cable industry – and in association with Shaw Media. It follows the life of a bisexual[5] Succubus named Bo, played by Anna Silk, as she learns to control her supernatural abilities, help those in need, and discover the truth about her origins. Following good ratings[6] and positive reviews, it was renewed for a second season on November 12, 2010 (two months after its premiere);[7] a third season on December 9, 2011;[8] and a fourth season on February 28, 2013.[9]

In Australia, Lost Girl premiered on Sci Fi Australia on July 14, 2011.[10] In the United Kingdom (UK and Ireland), it premiered on Syfy on September 1, 2011.[11] In the United States, it premiered on Syfy on January 16, 2012,[12] after Syfy purchased the rights to the first 26 episodes from Prodigy Pictures on May 18, 2011.[13]

The total episode running time is 44:00 minutes, including opening credits and fade to black closing credits roll.

Episodes broadcast by Syfy in the United States are edited from their original 44:00 minutes to allow more time for commercial advertisements. Starting with Season Three, 00:30 seconds that would have otherwise been cut from the episodes for Syfy (U.S.) were spared by substituting the original opening credits with credits superimposed over the first scene of each episode.

Season Five (2014)[edit]

A fifth season consisting of thirteen episodes has been confirmed to air in the Fall of 2014.[31]

Motion comics[edit]

As part of the show's promotion, a series of motion comics, Lost Girl: The Interactive Motion Comic, was released on the official Lost Girl website.[32] The first of these appeared on August 20, 2010. The plan was to release one chapter per month, for a total of six, during the Fall 2010 television season. Around the time of the release of No. 5, the individual chapters were made available for downloading as well as being watchable on the Lost Girl website. File formats included M4V, MP4 and WMV files. It used elements of traditional print comic books with animation and audio effects. Called a motion comic by the producers, it provided a story-telling medium which was hoped would provide information about Bo and other characters from the show, and give additional insight into the supernatural world of Lost Girl.
