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.
