Lost Girl is a Canadian supernatural drama television series[1] that premiered on Showcase on September 12, 2010. 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), and in association with Shaw Media. It follows the life of a bisexual[5] succubus named Bo, played by Anna Silk,[6][7] as she learns to control her supernatural abilities, help those in need, and discover the truth about her origins. Following good ratings and positive reviews, it was renewed for a second season on November 12, 2010 (two months after its premiere);[8] a third season on December 9, 2011;[9] a fourth season on February 28, 2013;[10] and a fifth season on February 27, 2014.[11]

In Australia, Lost Girl premiered on Sci Fi Australia on July 14, 2011.[12] In the United Kingdom and Ireland, it premiered on Syfy (UK) on September 1, 2011.[13] In the United States, it premiered on Syfy on January 16, 2012.[14]

Introduction[edit]

Episodes begin with a cold open; followed by the opening title sequence showing the top four main actors, series creator and show title, accompanied by the Lost Girl Theme song. Over the top of the sequence and theme song is the voice-over monologue by the protagonist, Bo (Anna Silk), summarizing her story:

Life is hard when you don't know who you are. It's harder when you don't know what you are. My love carries a death sentence. I was lost for years, searching while hiding; only to find that I belong to a world hidden from humans. I won't hide anymore. I will live the life I choose.

The Lost Girl Theme song was composed by Jody Colero, Marco DiFelice and Benjamin Pinkerton.

Total episode running time is 44:00 minutes, including opening title sequence and fade to black closing credits roll.

Episodes on Syfy in the United States are 90 seconds shorter to allow for more commercial advertisement time.[15] Starting with Season 3, 30 seconds that would have otherwise been cut from the episodes for Syfy were preserved by substituting the original opening title sequence with opening credits superimposed over the first scene of each episode.

Plot[edit]

Season 1 (2010)[edit]

Main article: Lost Girl (season 1)

"It's kind of tough growing up thinking that you might have a shot at being prom queen and find out that you're part of some ageless secret race that feeds on humans." (1.02)

Bo is a Succubus who grew up in an adopted human family, unaware of her non-human nature and of the Fae world she descended from. She began to feel "different" when she entered puberty and didn't know she was not normal until she accidentally killed her high school boyfriend by draining his life energy during her first sexual encounter. When she told her parents what had happened, they broke the news to Bo that she had been adopted (see "Raging Fae"). Not knowing what she was and what she had done, Bo hated herself and ran away from home, exchanging her previous life for one without family or friends, moving from place to place and assuming a false identity whenever she killed again.

In the first episode, Bo saves a young human woman, Kenzi, from a rapist who had surreptitiously drugged her with a "roofie" in her drink. The two quickly become friends and Kenzi decides they should team up to create a Fae/Human detective agency. Confronted by the Fae leaders of the local territory with a demand for her to choose a side – either "Light" or "Dark" – Bo declares herself neutral, deciding instead to side with humans after Kenzi risks her life to find out where Bo had been taken by force and what they were doing to her. Most of the Fae considered Bo an unknown entity that should either be eliminated as a risk to their secret existence or exploited for their benefit. Throughout the season, Bo learns more about the Fae world and herself while she searches for information about her origins. Along the way, Bo also develops romantic relationships with both Dyson, a Light Fae wolf shapeshifter and police detective; and Lauren, a human doctor and scientist in servitude to the Light Fae.

Recurring characters: The Ash, The Morrígan, Vex, Aife.

Season 2 (2011/12)[edit]

Main article: Lost Girl (season 2)

"I can be more powerful than all other Fae. Everyone will kneel at my feet. There will be no more Dark and no more Light. There will be only me." (2.08)

Bo faces personal challenges with Dyson after she finds out in Blood Lines that he lied to her about knowing who her birth mother was and that he had been Trick's undercover agent, then later about his lost feelings of passion for her; and with Lauren when their relationship became complicated after The Morrígan informed Bo in "It's Better to Burn Out Than Fae Away" that Lauren had a girlfriend. At the same time that she is coping with these turmoils, a villainous and evil ancient enemy of the Fae, the Garuda, is awakened and reappears with the intent to destroy the truce between Light and Dark Fae, and reignite the Great War between them. The new Ash, Lachlan, recruits Bo to be his champion in the battle against the Garuda and she agrees on the condition that he regard her as a partner, not as his servant. Bo learns in Into the Dark that she is not only Trick's maternal granddaughter, but deduces that she has inherited some of his Blood Sage powers: if her blood comes into contact with someone's open wound, it can enslave and bind the recipient to her will (the same power that her mother, Aife, used to create male slaves). She uses her blood power to unite her team in the final battle against the Garuda.

Recurring characters: The Morrígan, Vex, Lachlan, Ciara, Nadia, Ryan Lambert, Nate, Nain Rouge, The Garuda, The Norn, Val Santiago.

Season 3 (2013)[edit]

Main article: Lost Girl (season 3)

"One hair from someone she loves. Two from someone she trusts. And three from her own head. Put them in the bottle and the Druid will do the rest." (3.10)

With Fae society in upheaval, Bo finds herself facing further changes and challenges as former ally Hale becomes the acting Ash – trying to forge a new balance between Light and Dark by appointing a Valkyrie aligned with the Dark Fae, Tamsin, as Dyson's new detective partner. Meantime, Tamsin is a secret agent working for two separate clients: The Morrígan, who wants to build a case against Bo so that she can execute her; and as a mercenary for someone who wants to entrap Bo. Matters become complicated when Kenzi is kidnapped by a crazed Kitsune who assumes her identity and deliberately sows distrust in the relationships between Bo and those closest to her, just as Bo must prepare for and go through an evolutionary Fae rite of passage that forces her to explore her past and future. Danger escalates when a human scientist convinces a despondent Lauren to join him in conducting scientific research in his private laboratory – all the while deceptively concealing his intent to harness Fae genetics for himself with the use of her expertise. The third season culminates with Bo being engulfed by black smoke and disappearing into thin air, presumably whisked away by her mysterious and powerful biological father (who may be "The Wanderer" that recurred throughout the season's story arc).

Recurring characters: The Morrígan, Vex, Tamsin, Stella, Dr. Isaac Taft, Bruce, Massimo, Aife.

Season 4 (2013/14)[edit]

Main article: Lost Girl (season 4)

"One with eyes both brown and blue. One who shifts. A valkyrie, too. One with blood that rules the world. One who sings, his life unfurled. A warrior to be her guide. A healer always by her side." (4.12)

While Kenzi, Hale, and Dyson, are all living their lives, Bo is nowhere to be found. It's later realized that they simply forgot Bo, as someone was forcing them to. Massimo has been giving Kenzi temporary powers to appear Fae. Bo finally awakens to find herself on a train, and later jumps off. A group of Fae called the "Una Mens" are introduced. When she arrives home, it is discovered that while Bo herself did not consciously choose a side, her blood has chosen Dark. Tamsin is found reborn, as a little girl, and grows up with Kenzi as her pseudo-mom. Massimo steals from Bo and Kenzi in an attempt to convince Kenzi to pay him, and Bo figures out that he is not Fae, but human. He also kidnaps Tamsin to acquire her Valkyrie hair, and after being defeated by Bo, chases after the hair into a pit of lava, where at that point he is assumed to be dead. Many of Trick's secrets and past actions are revealed, including a tie to a past life of Tamsin's, and the fact that he used his blood to "erase" someone from existence. Tamsin discovers that by not taking the soul to of a man named Rainer to Valhalla, she is part of the reason "The Wanderer" was created. Bo is able to get back on the train, where she finally meets Rainer, and brings him back to the Dal. Hale and Kenzi admit their feelings for each other. Lauren, who has been working with the Dark, somehow turns the Morrigan human. Kenzi's mother is introduced, and Hale attempts to propose. Massimo returns, and protecting Kenzi, Hale is killed. Kenzi tries to get revenge, but is stopped by Vex, who mentions that he is Massimo's guardian. Evony is revealed to be Massimo's mother, and gave him to Vex years ago when he was a boy. Bo learns that not only is her father coming, but that to close the portal, she will need to give her heart. That is revealed to be Kenzi, who sacrifices herself. It ends with Bo visiting Kenzi's grave.

Recurring characters: The Morrígan, Vex, Tamsin, Massimo, The Keeper and The Una Mens, Rainer, Crystal, Clio, Bruce.

Development and production[edit]

On November 16, 2008, Prodigy Pictures issued a press release that they had been commissioned by Canwest (Canwest Global Communications Corp.) to produce a pilot for Lost Girl, a drama about a young woman with supernatural powers.[27] The pilot was to be written by Michelle Lovretta who had previously written for the Canadian television series Mutant X. Principal photography was completed in February 2009.[28]

On August 13, 2009, Canwest issued a press release announcing that the Showcase television channel, a subsidiary of the main company, had given the green-light for a 13-episode, one-hour supernatural drama series: "A drama loaded with mystery, romance and intrigue, Lost Girl focuses on the gorgeous and charismatic Bo – a Succubus with heart. While Succubi are inhuman women who seduce and feed off their human partner's sexual energy, Bo is not your average Succubus. Raised in secret by humans, Bo tries to survive in the human, modern world without giving in to her instinctive urge to kill. Refusing to embrace her supernatural clan and its strict regimes, Bo uses her feminine wiles – along with some help from her friends – to fight for the underdog. All the while, she is on a very personal mission to unlock the secrets of her origin and find her birth mother...Leading the Lost Girl cast is Anna Silk (Billable Hours, Being Erica) as Bo. The gang of monster misfits and human helpers includes Kristen Holden-Reid (The Tudors) as Dyson, an inhuman cop involved in a love/hate relationship with Bo – he absolutely hates how much he loves her. Two-time Gemini Award winner Ksenia Solo (Renegadepress.com) stars as Kenzie, Bo's street-smart and fiercely loyal human best friend. The cast also includes Rick Howland (Bon Cop, Bad Cop) as Trick, a friendly saloon keeper with something to hide...Lost Girl will also offer a cross platform experience to viewers. Production is currently underway on the development of an interactive website, graphic novel and downloadable video game."[29][30]

Season 1[edit]

On April 6, 2010, Prodigy Pictures reported that "principal photography is underway for 13 one-hour episodes of the new original Canadian fantasy-noir series, Lost Girl. Filming will take place at a West Toronto soundstage and on location in the vicinities of Toronto and Hamilton until June 25, 2010. The series is set to air on Showcase in the fall...Lost Girl follows supernatural seductress Bo (Anna Silk), a Succubus who feeds on the sexual energy of mortals...Bo's succubus nature tangles her in a sexy, romantic love-triangle with Dyson (Kris Holden-Reid), a shape-shifting Fae and homicide detective, and Lauren (Zoie Palmer), a human doctor who has found a way through science to help give Bo the sexual self-control she's been aching for. Navigating this complicated life with Bo is her human confidante and street-smart survivor, Kenzi (Ksenia Solo)...Writers include Michelle Lovretta; Peter Mohan; Jeremy Boxen; Emily Andras; and Pamela Pinch...A companion website for the series is being produced concurrently and will launch with the show to give viewers an unprecedented, interactive experience."[31][32] The series was aimed for a September 2010 release date.

On June 22, 2010, Keyframe Digital Productions Inc.[33] reported that they had been given the contract for visual effects on the first thirteen episodes of Lost Girl.[34]

As part of the promotion of the series, an official site was opened at the beginning of August 2010 at www.lostgirlseries.com. It contained a short trailer for the series and a summary of information on the show and its characters. On August 20, 2010, "Lost Girl: The Interactive Motion Comic"[35] was released as a lead-in to the series. On the same date, a press release indicated that Lost Girl cast and crew would be making an appearance at Fan Expo Canada in Toronto on August 27–29, 2010, where they would be answering questions about the show and have promotional items available for audience members as well.[36]

Lost Girl premiered on Showcase on September 12, 2010.[37][38] The show's debut became "the highest-rated Canadian scripted series premiere of all time on Showcase."[39]

The first season episode "Vexed" (1.08) is the original pilot shown to Showcase to obtain the green-light for the series.[40]

Season 2[edit]

Showcase renewed Lost Girl for a second season on November 12, 2010, announcing "record-breaking ratings" and the "number one scripted series for Adults 25–54 across all specialty channels" in Canada.[8][41]

Season 4[edit]

Midway through Season 3, Showcase announced the renewal of Lost Girl for a fourth season on February 28, 2013, citing consistent delivery of "stellar ratings" and a "cornerstone series" for the network.[10] Later on the same day, Syfy announced it had renewed Lost Girl for a fourth season containing thirteen episodes, and premiering in 2014.[56]

On May 31, 2013, Prodigy Pictures and Showcase announced that filming had begun on thirteen episodes for Season 4, with an expected premiere in Fall 2013;[57] followed with a start of production announcement by Syfy on June 4, 2013.[58]

Season 5[edit]

Showcase and Shaw Media announced the renewal for a fifth season of Lost Girl on February 27, 2014. Vanessa Piazza, who joined Prodigy Pictures Inc. in 2009 as a producer, was elevated to the position of executive producer on the show. Michael Grassi, who became a writer and consulting producer for the series in its fourth season, moved into the position of showrunner and executive producer for Season 5.[11][63]

On April 9, 2014, Prodigy Pictures and Showcase announced the start of production on 13 episodes, with filming taking place in and around Toronto, and Season 5 premiering in Fall 2014.[64][65]

Creator[edit]

In a 2011 interview for The Watercooler, Michelle Lovretta described her reaction to being asked to create Lost Girl: "When Prodigy (our studio) asked me to create a show about some kind of bisexual superhero who uses sex as part of her arsenal, my first thought was "hell, yes!"...The challenge was to create a fun, sex-positive world that celebrates provocative cheesecake for everyone, without falling into base stereotypes or misogynistic (or misandristic) exploitation along the way...Bo has lots of sex, with men, women, humans, Fae, threesomes... and she's still our hero, still a good person worthy (and capable) of love, and that's a rare portrayal of female sexuality...It's also rare to have a female lead who is so honestly sexual, without judgment...I think the single element I will remain proudest of is just that we've been able to create and put out into the world a sex positive universe where a person's sexual orientation is unapologetically present and yet neither defines them as a character, nor the show as a whole...I felt it was crucial to also demonstrate that sex and romance aren't the only ways that Bo measures a relationship's worth, to give the show balance...Fans may have noticed that Kenzi clarified her hetero orientation at the end of ep 101...That line was necessary because...I was determined to protect their platonic-yet-epic BFF-ness, so I made sure it was written in as canon. Partly, this was to debunk the gay-panic cliche that bisexual people sexualize everyone, and are incapable of platonic friendship. But there was another, simpler and more personal reason: I think friendship is the fifth element...So, hidden in amongst all the romance and cleavage and threesomes, the Lost Girl Bo and Kenzi relationship is my own little love poem to all the BFFs out there who do it right.""[2]

Showrunner[edit]

Series creator Michelle Lovretta[66][67] teamed with industry veteran Peter Mohan[68] to co-showrun Season 1. Lovretta and Mohan left (on good terms) after the first season to pursue other opportunities, and the Season 2 showrunner role was split between Lost Girl writer Jeremy Boxen[69] and another industry veteran, Grant Rosenberg.[70]

Emily Andras,[71] who had been involved with the series as a writer and consulting producer since Season 1, became showrunner effective Season 3. In an interview for The Huffington Post after the announcement by Syfy that it had renewed the show for a third season, Andras described what direction she would like to see Lost Girl go in the future: "Into a world where a bisexual protagonist is non-news. I'm so proud of the comedic ambitions of Lost Girl, that it's dedicated genre [fare] that doesn't take itself too seriously, but I also love exploring the shades of gray; the moral ambiguity of characters who may live forever and their relationships with mortals who will not."[72] In a December 2012 interview with the Writers Guild of Canada, Andras detailed the flow of the Lost Girl showrunner title,[73] followed with a second interview in the guild's magazine, Canadian Screenwriter.[74] In an interview with SpoilerTV, she addressed the fervor of the show's fandom.[75] On March 10, 2013, after the Showcase broadcast of Fae-ge Against The Machine, Emily Andras participated in a special live question and answer session on Doccubus.com[76] with fans of the show and of Bo & Lauren. In the Q&A, Andras also discussed the selection of Zoie Palmer for the role of Dr. Lauren Lewis, the theme of death, and the love triangle between "the wolf" and "the doctor".[77][78][79] Starting with the premiere episode of Season 4, In Memoriam, Andras held a series of exclusive post-episode weekly interviews with The Loop (TV Guide.CA).[80] She discussed the process of writing Lost Girl and her involvement with the series in an interview with the popular podcast fan site, Drinks at The Dal.[81]

Michael Grassi,[82] who joined the show as a writer and consulting producer for the fourth season, succeeded Emily Andras as showrunner for Season 5. (Andras moved into the position of executive consulting producer on the series.)

Motion comics – Comic book – Mobile game[edit]

As a promotional prequel to the show's premiere on September 12, 2010, Showcase released a six-chapter series of interactive motion comics, Lost Girl: The Interactive Motion Comic, on its Lost Girl website.[109][110] The comics introduced users to Bo, the heroine of Lost Girl, and other characters in the show. The first chapter premiered on August 20, 2010,[111] and all chapters were later made available for downloading.

To promote the show's United States premiere on Syfy in January 2012, a limited edition comic book, Lost Girl: Prologue, was distributed during the Lost Girl panel on July 22, 2011, at San Diego Comic-Con 2011.[112]

On April 14, 2013, Showcase released Lost Girl: The Game, a free interactive mobile game app for iOS and Android devices.[113] The release of the game coincided with the Season 3 finale. Syfy launched the game on April 22, 2013, to correspond with the conclusion of the season in the United States.[114]

Social media[edit]

On January 6, 2013, Showcase and Prodigy Pictures held the first Lost Girl live tweeting event during the broadcasts of the Lost Girl ConFAEdential pre-show special and the Season 3 premiere on Showcase, with Anna Silk, Ksenia Solo, Zoie Palmer, Rick Howland, and K.C. Collins.[115][116]

The live tweeting event was repeated on January 14, 2013, during the U.S. premiere of Season 3 on Syfy, with Anna Silk, Kris Holden-Ried, Ksenia Solo, Zoie Palmer, Rick Howland, K.C. Collins, and Paul Amos.[117][118]

As of February 1, 2014, the show's Facebook page had 307,000 likes[119] and its official Twitter had 51,959 followers,[120] giving them a large social media presence.

Reception[edit]

Ratings for the 9 p.m. series premiere on September 12, 2010, was over "400,000 viewers (2+)" and "another 184,000 (2+)" for the episode rerun at 10:40 p.m., making Lost Girl the "highest-rated Canadian scripted series premiere of all time on Showcase."[39]

In Canada, Rob Salem of the Toronto Star described the show as one that "definitely bears watching".[121] Vladislav Tinchev, writer for the German site Serienjunkies wrote that the series would benefit from "revealing more background information about the represented world," rather than spend time on "clumsy action scenes". But Tinchev pointed out that "Lost Girl is not lost at all, and has immediately won the audience and entertains them well. And there is nothing wrong with that, because TV series need not be world-shaking events."[122]

In anticipation of its United States premiere, Brian Lowry of Variety wrote: "At first glance, Lost Girl looks like another one of those Canadian imports picked up mostly for financial reasons. The pilot, however, proves unexpectedly fun—a sort of diluted version of True Blood... but the show has wit, style and an enticing lead in the leather-clad Anna Silk."[123] Writing for The New York Times, Mike Hale said: "Like other fantasy-tinged shows on Syfy and USA, it offers the minor pleasures of formulaic fantasy and weekly puzzle solving, though in a cheaper-looking and less original package than usual...."[124] In a post-premiere review for The Huffington Post, Mauren Ryan wrote: "No one can say there's been a dearth of genre-tinged programs on television in recent years. The vampire boom of the mid-aughts was followed by the zombie bonanza of the last couple of years; all in all, we're awash in various undead and otherworldly creatures...But one of the reasons Lost Girl has made such a big impression on me...is because the Syfy show does what so many genre programs fail to do these days: It has fun with its premise...But don't expect Lost Girl to be perfect: Bo's universe can seem constricted at times, the weekly clients and monsters aren't always interesting and occasionally the storytelling has abrupt moments. But my occasional complaints have been overwhelmed by my growing appreciation of what creator Michelle Lovretta has done with this light drama: She's created a Hero's Journey with a self-confident woman — a succubus, no less — at the center of it...Lovretta has done something subversively impressive with Lost Girl. She's built a whole show around the idea of a woman who is learning just how much she can or should take from others, and how much she can rely on herself."[125]

The pairing of Bo and Lauren became popularly referred to as "Doccubus" after fans of the couple combined "Doctor" Lauren Lewis with Bo's "Succubus" species (i.e. Doc+cubus) to create the alias.[126]

Episodes broadcast by Syfy in the United States have :90 seconds cut from their original 44:00 minutes to allow more time for commercial advertisements.[15] In Season 2, the decision to edit an emotive scene between Bo and Lauren from "Scream a Little Dream" created controversy among LGBT fans of the show, resulting in the network being accused of insensitivity and censorship. Lost Girl producers responded to the backlash by issuing a public statement on the show's Facebook page[127] explaining that the edits were done in-house, and not by Syfy, for "timing and not content." As noted by Dorothy Snarker writing for AfterEllen: "With so little representation of gay relationships on TV, every little touch matters."[128][129] After this experience, beginning with Season 3, the original opening title sequence accompanied by the Lost Girl Theme song was replaced with opening credits superimposed over footage of the first scene, sparing :30 seconds from being cut from the episodes for Syfy (U.S.).

In a 2012 report by TiVo of television programs watched at bedtime, Lost Girl was rated one of the top ten, most watched shows.[130]

In a Slate magazine 2012 year-end list of 15 favorite television shows that are a pleasure to watch, Lost Girl (on Syfy) was named "Number 1" on the list, and hailed as "Sexy, snarky, and Canadian."[131]

"Bo and Lauren" was named Top TV Couple of 2013 by E! Online (E! Entertainment Television), with its competition in the annual popularity contest compared to a "David versus Goliath".[132][133]

On February 14, 2013, a CNN (Cable News Network) broadcast of the twenty, past and present, favorite couples in television included "Bo and Lauren" as couple "Number 9" in the list.[134][135]

"Lauren Lewis" was chosen "Number 1" by AfterEllen in its November 2013 survey of The Top 25 Lesbian/Bi Characters on TV (Right Now).[136] "Bo" was named "Number 7" in the list.

In an exclusive selection of the best Canadian television shows of 2013, Lost Girl was rated "Number 6" by some of Canada's top critics and television editors in Canada's Best in Show by TV Guide (Canada).[137]

HuffPost Canada TV ranked Lost Girl as the "Number 4" television show in its Best Canadian TV Of 2013.[138]

In the annual AfterEllen Visibility Awards, Lost Girl, Lauren Lewis, and Zoie Palmer won the categories in which they were candidates for year 2013.[139]

At the 2014 Canadian Screen Awards, Lost Girl won the Fan Choice Award for Favourite Canadian Show and Zoie Palmer won the Fan Choice Award for Favourite Canadian Screen Star.[140]
