Syfy has picked up supernatural drama “Bitten” for a third season, Variety has learned exclusively.

The 10-episode third season, which is produced by Entertainment One, will air on Syfy in 2016. Chris Regina, SVP Program Strategy at Syfy and Chiller, said of the acquisition, “’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.”

“We’re delighted that ‘Bitten’ will be returning to Syfy,” added John Morayniss, Chief Executive Officer, Entertainment One Television. “Alongside No Equal Entertainment and Hoodwink Entertainment, we are thrilled to continue this incredible journey and looking forward to sinking our teeth into what’s sure to be another nail-biting season.”

“I’m excited to continue ‘Bitten’s’ success with a pickup of our third season by Syfy and look forward to working with the talented writing and production team to bring more adventures with our Pack to life,” said J.B. Sugar, Executive Producer, No Equal Entertainment.

Based on Kelley Armstrong’s “Women of the Otherworld” novels, “Bitten” stars Laura Vandervoort as Elena Michaels, the lone female werewolf in existence; Greyston Holt as Elena’s passionate partner, Clay Danvers; Greg Bryk as the Alpha Pack leader Jeremy Danvers; and Steve Lund as flirtatious and charming Pack member Nick Sorrentino.

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.

“Bitten” is produced by No Equal Entertainment, Hoodwink Entertainment, and eOne in association with Space and Bell Media, with the participation of Rogers Cable Network Fund and Cogeco Program Development Fund and the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit. eOne handles the worldwide rights to the series. The show airs on Space in Canada, where it is the network’s most-watched original series, and was renewed in May.

    Bitten will air for one more season then Syfy is going to cancel it. Like every good show that is started some dumbass decides to end it. Does anyone in Hollywood actually listen to the public. This really just ticks me off. I am getting to where I actually hate T.V. I will enjoy Bitten as long as some dumbass allows me too. They cancel after this season, just saying. Canada is keeping Bitten for a forth season. To bad some one in Syfy doesn’t follow Canada. Give the people what they want. Not all of these stupid shows that no one watches. Getting fed up with stupid T.V… Bitten is actually a good show, I hate to see it go. I will enjoy it while I can. GRRRRRRRRRRRRR

    Im thrilled Bitten is back. Iv really enjoyed the series. Its well written and well acted. Hope it goes on and on.

  3. Wonder if they are going to follow the 3rd werewolf book or follow the books and deviate to the witches. Seems ALOT will be lost if you don’t make an attempt to follow the book order. There are only two more werewolf prominent books BUT if you skip the other books between and they attempt to follow the werewolf books you will be lost. There are characters introduced in the “witch” books that are important in the werewolf books

  4. Devon Wooten says:

    Great I am looking forward to it. READY TO BE BITTEN🐺

  5. We can only hope that series three of Bitten is better than the convoluted mess that was series two.

  6. Loretta noel says:

    What day and time does season 3 of bitten start

  7. Bitten is so good, why doesn’t American SyFy air reruns and on Demand? It is smooch better than the regular ScyFy offerings, especially the Ghost swigs respite with special effects which are so transparent.

  8. sandi says:

    Love love love bitten wish there were more episodes

  9. Gypsy says:

    I wish they would make more than just 10 episodes every season.

  10. jessica says:

    They need to put more episodes on the first and second season.

  11. I love the show bitten, just sorry we have to wait so long for next season.

  12. Claudius Valentine says:

    i hope season 3 goes back to the way 1st season was about the pact having the setting around their old mansion because season 2 sucked royally it was about the witches the wolf pact took a backseat for the female wolf and all the freaking witches {that looked very convincing as witches btw}

    but the show is about the wolf pact and should be focusing on the werewolf lore not their allies or enemies so i hope season 3 goes back to the wolf pacts mansion if they do another kidnapping having the season again about finding her with a long arc about almost nothing that we fans didnt guess already if the show doesn’t go back to the way 1st season played out then Bitten is doomed

    • Jessie says:

      The word you are looking for is pack, not pact. And if you read the books, then you’d know that the introduction of the witches is right on course for the series. If anything, the show should stop deviating from the books so much.

  13. Eliza says:

    I just love Bitten! I live in the USA. My cousin and I can’t get enough of this show. Had as both crying for what happened to Logan in the end of season 2. Cain believe we have to wait till next year, but grateful the show is still being made. Love all the hard work being put in to it.

  14. Jordan says:

    YAY!!!!!

  15. Savannah says:

    I’m so happy to hear that there going to be a third season

  16. ChrisV says:

    Very good news! I think the move to Fridays was really good for fan awareness of season 2.
