lost-girl-cancelledDescription: Lost Girl follows supernatural seductress Bo, a Succubus who feeds on the sexual energy (sometimes called “chi”) of humans. Growing up with human parents, Bo had no reason to believe she was anything other than the girl next door – until she drained her boyfriend to death in their first sexual encounter. After years of running, Bo discovered she was Fae, creatures of legend and folklore, who pass as humans while feeding off them secretly and in different ways, as they have for millennia. Relieved to find out that she is not alone, yet horrified, Bo decides to take the middle path between the humans and the Fae while embarking on a personal mission to unlock the secrets of her origin.

With the help of her sidekick, Kenzi, her grandfather, Trick and her on-again/off-again love interests, Dyson and Lauren, Bo’s journeys into the world of the Fae is met with danger at every turn. Syfy.com

Why Did It End? The fifth season of this show was announced as its last before it began as the cast and crew had apparently decided that five years and 77 episodes was enough to tell Bo’s story. Canadian series do not necessarily shoot for the extended runs that we see in the States, and this show has still achieved a decent enough episode count and will likely live on in syndication worldwide.

      Lost Girl is coming back for a fifth and final season. It has already started airing in Canada and will air on Syfy at some point in 2015.

    My husband and I really love this show. We were hoping this would go on for at least 2 more seasons. We don’t agree with this season being the last.

    I am a big fan of Lost Girl and understand, much to the dismay of many fans its in its final season. That is bad enough. However, can we get a date please? Instead of “sometime in 2015” . I missed the entire 4th season because of that kind of wishy washy bull!

        Had no idea this was cancelled.. 🙁 until I saw Zoe going to another show.. Sick of shows that are really good cancelled all too soon.. Why should fans even get involved in any show with always the threat of them being cancelled.. Some only last a few episodes.. I think reading is better than TV any day… !!!!

          Lost Girl was not necessarily cancelled, they just decided to end it with its fifth season. It will go out on its own terms (rather than getting cancelled with loose ends) and non-U.S. shows do not necessarily target extended, 100+ episode runs.

    L G scheduled for cancellation ? Too bad, this series is well written with great production values and has characters that are very likable and sexy. I don’t think type casting will be an issue, the cast has shown both dramatic and comedic prowess. Really too bad. I’ll miss them. Looking forward to season five.

    I love Lost Girls. The problem was that you couldn’t set the DVR to auto record because the dates were off and I missed a bunch of episodes! It’s almost as if this show was set up to fail. Sorry it’s been cancelled and I’m trying to catch up on missed episodes via Internet, but viewing isn’t as good as on my big screen and surround sound.

    This show tanked after Ksenia Solo left it, plain and simple. She was the heart and soul of the show, bringing an actual work ethic and nuanced performance to the program, rather than standing around with her mouth open slightly in yoga pants and a bustier.

    Lost Girl is my favorite show. It always is comforting when I am sad, mad or happy. It is one of the only shows I can watch over and over again. How can you beat 2 bad-ass Chicks Fighting to survive, while fighting against rules that are unfair and sometimes unjust, with added mystical lore. It brings all your childhood fairy tales to life, with a twist. I am deeply sorry to hear that the show is being cancelled. A true loss. 5 Seasons is considered a success. My only question is WHY!!! What happened in season 5? You took a mid-season break that lasted forever, and the show did not get much promotion. Seems like Lost Girl got lost in the wind, my tears are being blown away as I type this. There will never be another Lost Girl for me!!

    I can’t believe this is the last season. I won’t!! Please bring it back, it’s so unfair. So many of my favorite shows are being cancelled. Pretty soon, I won’t have anything to watch. 🙁
