After weeks and weeks of fans anxiously waiting and tweeting, Showcase finally announced that Lost Girl has been renewed for a fifth season!
Showcase has ordered 13 more episodes that it says will air in “Fall 2014,” but a tweet from season 4 showrunner Emily Andras suggests that the season might start airing more specifically in September.
Update 8/25/2014: Season 5’s premiere date has been announced as December 7. Also, the fifth season will be the final season of Lost Girl. It will have 16 episodes and will air in two parts with the second half set to air in Fall 2015, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The announcement of the renewal was quickly followed by the news that the show will have a new showrunner. Emily Andras announced that Michael Grassi will be taking over as showrunner in season 5. Andras says that she will still be involved in the Lost Girl team, and a photo posted on Twitter of some season 5 scripts reveals that she wrote the second episode of season 5. In their announcement of the season 5 renewal, TV Guide Canada indicated that Andras will now be an executive consulting producer.
Michael Grassi joined the Lost Girl team in season 4 as a writer and consulting producer. He wrote three season 4 episodes: “Turn to Stone,” “La Fae Époque,” and “Waves.” Prior to working on Lost Girl, Grassi was a writer and co-executive producer on DeGrassi: The Next Generation.
WARNING: Spoilers Ahead for the Season 4 Finale
Season 4 ended on quite a dramatic note with Kenzi dead and Bo vowing to bring her back. While the season 5 announcement assured fans that the story is not over for Bo and her friends, fans are still nervous about Kenzi’s fate. TV Guide Canada confirmed that Anna Silk, Kris Holden-Ried, Zoie Palmer, Rick Howland, Rachel Skarsten, Paul Amos, and Emmanuelle Vaugier would be returning in season 5, but no mention of Ksenia Solo. However, Rachel Skarsten was not mentioned in press releases prior to season 4, and similarly the fate of her character was left as a cliffhanger at the end of season 3. It’s quite possible that the show is holding back on announcing Solo’s return to keep fans guessing about Kenzi’s ultimate fate.
A photo released on Twitter by Shaw Media executive Stephen Finney reveals the titles and writers of the first three episodes of season 5.
- Episode 501: “Like Hell, Part 1” written by Michael Grassi
- Episode 502: “Like Hell, Part 2” written by Emily Andras
- Episode 503: “Oroka Mojo” written by Alexandra Zarowny
