After getting hooked on Lost Girl when it started airing on SyFy, I’ve been a faithful follower and advocate of this Canadian import that skirted and crossed a line that most American shows don’t cross. Back when the first season premiered on SyFy, I was pleasantly surprised that the network seemingly went against the grain and aired the first season without editing the episodes for time and content. That unedited first season was all part of the bargain that SyFy made to get the series on their network, and unfortunately would be the only season to air in that fashion. The second season aired immediately following the end of the first, but this time around, edits were made. The show suffered a bit as content was removed from what Canadian audiences viewed, as well as the lengthy 22 episode (very uncommon for SyFy) season. The edits aren’t Syfy’s fault as they are made on the production end and those edited episodes are what SyFy is given, but it’s still a crying shame. There was a bit of a hiatus (although not as long as what Canadians had to deal with) before the shortened 13 episode season three aired, but SyFy stuck by the show and ran it as part of their “Powerful Mondays” line up along with Being Human and the other Canadian import, Continuum.
In a move that will surely make plenty of viewers happy, SyFy announced today that they will be picking up the third season of the hit Canadian import Lost Girl. That’s great news especially considering that the second season is currently airing on the network as part of their Powerful Mondays programming.
