Werewolf drama Bitten picked up for third season by Syfy

We heard the werewolf drama Bitten would be coming back for a third season on Canadian network Space a few weeks ago, and now Syfy has cut a deal to bring the series back to the U.S.

Variety reports Syfy (Corporate owner of Blastr - Ed.) has officially picked up the series for Season 3, which will consist of 10 episodes and air in 2016. Syfy has aired the first two seasons of the series, so it’s not much of a surprise to see year three on the way. The wolf-y series stars Laura Vandervoort as Elena, the lone female werewolf in existence.

“Bitten’s emotional and engrossing storyline, combined with some truly creepy horror moments, really resonated with fans this past season,” Chris Regina, SVP Program Strategy at Syfy and Chiller, said. “We eagerly anticipate seeing where the next chapter of Elena and her werewolf pack’s lives leads us in Season 3.”

The show started off a bit paint-by-numbers, but the mythology deepened in year two and the steamy drama has gained a decent following. The series is based on Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld novel series.
