Syfy loves shows that revolve around paranormal characters and Bitten does just that. The Canadian produced show was renewed by Space, now we know the second season of 10 episodes will be on American TV. The series follows a werewolf who wishes to live the life of a normal woman, but finds herself stuck in family drama and fights. The series follows her double life. The show’s first season didn’t do bad with around 11 million users per episode, which is clear why Syfy wants the slice of the pie.
How do you feel about Bitten returning? I am excited and happy that it will be. It is a different show with a spin on the current paranormal trend. I think if they promoted it correctly, they would find another hit on their hands and perhaps gain some respect in terms as a TV show airing network.

Space has finally ordered a second season for Canadian werewolf drama, Bitten...
One of the dangling threads of this year's spate of TV renewals and cancellations can now be snipped off or tied in a bow, or whatever happens to dangling threads when they no longer dangle: Bitten is returning for season two.
The Canadian supernatural series comes adapted from the first book in Kelley Armstrong's Women Of The Otherworld series, and follows the story of Elena Michaels, the only known female werewolf in the world. Elena's singularity, as you'd imagine, causes her to be the focus of a great deal of attention in the werewolf community, and to get into a great deal of trouble.
The first thirteen-part season aired earlier this year, with Laura Vandervoort in the lead role. Described by the network as a "sexy, high-octane thriller", Bitten is currently Space's most-watched original series. We'll »
