After a successful first season, the supernatural thriller ‘Bitten‘ has been picked up for a second season. The show averaged 1.1 million users per episode so the fanbase of the series based on the ‘Women of the Otherworld’ series by Kelley Armstrong should be quite happy to hear about its return! The series will have another 10-episode season run and will begin airing in 2015 with Laura Vendervoort (‘Smallesville’) in the lead role.
According to Senior Vice President of Programming at Syfy, Chris Regina, “Bitten is a fast-paced and edgy series which has found a growing and passionate fan base on our channel. We’re delighted to bring the series back to Syfy next year.”
A Senior Vice President at the show’s studio Entertainment One, Prentiss Fraser, chimes in:
“We’re absolutely thrilled with the tremendous support and enthusiasm from fans across social media since the debut of Bitten. We look forward to working with the talented cast and crew on another compelling season and continuing our partnership with Syfy in bringing the series back to viewers in the U.S. next year.”
Production of the second season will begin this summer. At this time it is unclear if the second season will stray into a more original story line or will continue from one of the follow up novels that Armstrong had written.
My wife had gotten me into this book series years ago and I’ve been enjoying the television adaptation of it. It has been long enough since I’ve read the books that there were a ton of surprises in the first series for me. While I wouldn’t mind up a bit of a ramp up on action, I can honestly say it’s been a decent watch from start to finish.
