Bitten-syfy-cancelledDescription: Based on the Women of the Otherworld novels by #1 NY Times best-selling author Kelley Armstrong, Bitten is an emotionally charged supernatural thriller starring Laura Vandervoort as Elena Michaels, the lone female werewolf in existence. Desperate to escape both a world she never wanted to be part of and the man who turned her into a werewolf, Elena has abandoned her pack and taken refuge in a new city. There, she works as a photographer and hides her werewolf existence from her new boyfriend. When bodies start turning up in her pack’s backyard, Elena finds herself back at Stonehaven, the werewolves’ ancestral domain. Torn between two worlds and two loves, she quickly realizes that – when push comes to shove – she’ll stop at nothing to defend her pack.

Why Did It End? This show developed a small but loyal following but apparently never managed to build a wider audience. Its U.S. ratings on the Syfy channel were never very high, and apparently the numbers for the Space Channel in Canada were not enough to keep it going for an extended run. But the creative team was informed in advance that the show’s third season would be its last, thus giving them the opportunity to wrap up its major storylines.

      It’s third season has been announced as its last, though I believe fans have a campaign in place to try and extend that.

    Every time I love a show it is canceled . It is getting pretty bad the shows I like are getting 2-3 seasons. New shows with different story lines and they keep renewing crap that has been on for 12-20 seasons that has long lost it’s appeal. This makes the viewers start watching on their computers and not bothering with the TV.

    I love Bitten and it should NOT be cancelled. I want to join the campaign to have Syfy continue showing Bitten?

    I agree with Darlene, every time I find a new show I really like, it gets cancelled. I love Bitten, it’s a different twist on the usual fantasy / paranormal or science fiction that everone does any more. You can only do so many variations on a theme. I’ve also heard talk that Grimm may end up cancelled. Another one I love! Come on people, if you feel the need to cancel shows, why don’t you get rid of some of the reality shows about celebrities and their phsyco family lives! We have enough of our own problems, and don’t need to watch them get paid big bucks to air theirs!!!

    Joe and pam , biggest bitten and sleepy hollow fans both finished is very depressing. Retired couple who loved these series . but as usual they always take the bwst off. Sad sad time for these Yahoo’s to end our ahows.?

    This sucks….just start watching Bitten on Netflix. Never know this show was on TV if I did I would have watched. I’m hooked can’t get enough. I was looking to see when season 4 was going to start cause I’m halfway through season 3. Only to find out it’s been cancelled. Why do all the good shows get cancelled…? I’m tired that all the crappy shows that are still on TV never get cancelled. Again this sucks…..!!!!!!!!

    how can you tell us that elena will have twins and now continue for us to meet the baby’s and see the pack/family grow and how the changes made have effected them meaning humans knowing about them of course you cant do that you did not wrap up the ending as well as you think we are left wondering what happens now

  7. Jamie

    I love Bitten and can’t wait for a season four… Then I find out it’s cancelled?! No!!!! There are still unanswered questions! This show inspired a novel I’ve been writing now for three years… :'(
