Hopefully by now you’ve heard that Lost Girl has been renewed for a fifth season! (Though if you haven’t, we are pleased to be your source for all the two-day-old breaking news that’s fit to print.)
That’s right, Bo and company will be back in Fall 2014 on Showcase in Canada. Here’s a press release from Shaw Media, which is Showcase’s parent company. (No word yet on when episodes will air on Syfy in the USA, though we have high hopes they can be on the same or next night.)
You’ll notice a few things in the press release.
(FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVEN’T SEEN ALL OF SEASON 4 AND DON’T WANT SPOILERS.)
Ksenia Solo is not listed among the returning cast. We hope this is just to throw us off the track! (The astute people at Drinks at the Dal noted in their post about Season 5 that Rachel Skarsten hadn’t been named in the press release announcing Season 4, since Tamsin’s fate had been up in the air (literally! (pun!)) at the end of Season 3.) The first episodes of Season 5 could indicate that the crew will be traveling to Hell/Hel in search of Kenzi, so fingers and toes crossed.
Also, Emily Andras tells us via twitter that she will continue to be involved in writing the show and informing the story arc, and that Michael Grassi will be assuming the role of showrunner for Season 5. We at UNALIGNED are big fans of Ms. Andras (new hashtag: #Fandras!), and we are also big fans of the episodes that Mr. Grassi wrote for Season 4. You can follow Señor Grassi on twitter at @thatthingofwhen
Big shoes to fill! These shoes, specifically:
The Shaw Media press release also announces that Vanessa Piazza is returning as an Executive Producer, which I think is a new role as well! Congratulations! And Jay Firestone, designer of Lauren’s necklace gift to Bo, will also remain as Executive Producer. Yay!
Okay, we hope that you’re as psyched as we are about SEASON 5!!!
