A drama series running on cable has been picked up for season three. Variety reports that Syfy renewed the werewolf series “Bitten.”
Produced by Entertainment One, the program received an order for 10 episodes, with the season set to run in 2016.
The Canadian production, filmed largely in Toronto, stars Laura Vandervoort as werewolf Elena Michaels, with Greyston Holt, Greg Bryk and Paul Greene also among the main cast.
Said Chris Regina, senior VP of Program Strategy at Syfy and Chiller: “’Bitten’s’ emotional and engrossing storyline, combined with some truly creepy horror moments, really resonated with fans this past season. We eagerly anticipate seeing where the next chapter of Elena and her werewolf pack’s lives leads us in Season 3.”
The Variety report adds: “The series is executive produced by J.B. Sugar for No Equal Entertainment, John Barbisan and Patrick Banister for Hoodwink Entertainment, and Tecca Crosby, John Morayniss, and Margaret O’Brien for eOne. Daegan Fryklind serves as showrunner. Executive Producers Fryklind and Wil Zmak return to write for season three. Also in the writing room are Larry Bambrick, Jenn Engels, and Garfield Lindsay Miller.”
