[via press release from Syfy]

SYFY RENEWS HIT SERIES "LOST GIRL" - #1 CABLE DRAMA AMONG ADULTS 18-49 AND ADULTS 25-54 IN ITS TIME PERIOD - FOR THIRD SEASON BEGINNING JANUARY 2013

NEW YORK - June 5, 2012 - Syfy has renewed its hit series Lost Girl - the #1 cable drama among Adults 18-49 and Adults 25-54 in its time period - for a third season of 13 episodes, beginning January 2013.

During season two to-date, Lost Girl is averaging 895,000 Adults 18-49, 930,000 Adults 25-54 and 1.64 million total viewers, based on available Live +7 data.

On July 20, Lost Girl will move from Mondays at 10PM (ET/PT) to Fridays at 10PM.

Anna Silk (Being Erica) stars as seductress Bo, a Succubus (a powerful female entity in folklore) who feeds off sexual energy. Raised by human parents, Bo had no reason to believe she was anything other than the girl next door - until she "drained" her first boyfriend to death.

Bo discovers she is one of the Fae, creatures of legend who pass as humans while secretly feeding off them. Faced with choosing between an allegiance to the Dark or Light Fae clans, Bo takes the middle path between the human and Fae worlds while embarking on a mission to unlock the secrets of her origin.

Returning for season three are Kris Holden-Ried (Ben Hur, The Tudors, Underworld 4) as "Dyson"; Ksenia Solo (Life Unexpected; Black Swan) as "Kenzi"; Zoie Palmer (The Guard, Instant Star, XIII) as "Lauren"; Rick Howland (Billable Hours, Murdoch Mysteries) as "Trick" and K.C. Collins (Owning Mahowny, Doomstown) as "Hale."

Joining the Lost Girl cast this season is Rachel Skarsten (The Vow; Flashpoint) in a recurring role as "Tamsin," a thrill-seeking, sexy new Fae who ruffles many feathers. Emmanuelle Vaugier (Two and a Half Men, Covert Affairs) will reprise her role as "The Morrigan," the leader of the Dark Fae.

Lost Girl was developed by Prodigy Pictures, in association with Shaw Media and Showcase. Executive producers are Jay Firestone, Emily Andras, Plato Fountidakis, and Paul Rapovski. James Thorpe is co-executive producer, Vanessa Piazza is co-producer and Wanda Chaffey is producer.

Lost Girl is produced with the participation of the Canadian Media Fund created by the Government of Canada and the Canadian cable industry, and with the assistance of the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit and the Ontario Film and Television Tax Credit Program. This acquisition agreement was brokered by Tim Mudd of Mudd Media.

With year round acclaimed original series, events, blockbuster movies, classic science fiction and fantasy programming, a dynamic Web site (www.Syfy.com), and a portfolio of adjacent business (Syfy Ventures), Syfy is a passport to limitless possibilities.
