TV News | Lost Girl ends run after 77 episodes

Lost Girl, the Prodigy Pictures series starring Anna Silk as a succubus who tries to forge her own path in a mortal’s world, announced its conclusion in an August 25, 2014 Shaw Media press release, as well as a video from the official Showcase YouTube account (see below). Lost Girl winds down with a sixteen-episode split season. The show debuted on Showcase September 12, 2010. In the United States of America, Lost Girl debuted January 16, 2012, on Syfy.

The first eight episodes of Lost Girl’s fifth season air on Showcase starting December 7, 2014, at 9:00 PM ET/PT. According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Etan Vlessing, the second half of the fifth season will air in fall 2015, although there is no indication that the fall 2015 run counts as a “sixth” season. Vlessing also confirms that Lost Girl will wrap internationally.

August 2014 is a painful month for Canadian television. Lost Girl’s announced conclusion marks the fourth end for a high-profile scripted Canadian series after The Listener, Working the Engels, and Seed. With Continuum’s future still undecided by Shaw Media – to the extent that Continuum show creator Simon Barry publicly wonders when a decision will be announced – there might be more cancellations in Canadian scripted television before the month bows out.
