SHOWCASE ANNOUNCES MONSTER-SIZED SLATE OF GUEST STARS FOR LOST GIRL’S FINAL SEASON
- Lost Girl Season 5, Part 1 premieres December 7 at 9pm ET/PT
Ahead of Lost Girl’s epic return, Showcase announces fresh faces joining the Fae family and raising the stakes for the series’ dramatic final season. The previously unannounced guest stars joining the cast for a fond and ferocious #Faewell include Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight, The Expendables), Luke Bilyk (My Babysitter’s a Vampire, Degrassi: The Next Generation), Noam Jenkins (Covert Affairs, Rookie Blue, Longmire), Amanda Walsh (Two and a Half Men, NCIS, Grimm) and Shanice Banton (Degrassi: The Next Generation, A Day Late and a Dollar Short). The first eight episodes of Lost Girl’s fifth and final season begin Sunday, December 7 at 9pm ET/PT.
Lost Girl follows supernatural seductress Bo (Anna Silk), the kickass, loveable succubus who feeds off sexual energy. Since realizing she is part of the Fae, creatures of legend and folklore who live among humans, Bo has forged her own path between the human and Fae worlds, while embarking on a mission to unlock the secrets of her origin.
In season five, Bo’s determination to do the impossible for the people she loves triggers an explosive chain of events that will play out over the final episodes. Bo discovers that love is not always enough to keep a family together as she and her friends face an enemy unlike any they’ve faced before. In the season premiere “Like Hell Part 1,” Bo goes to hell and back to rescue a friend while Tamsin (Rachel Skarsten) faces a foe from her past.
Kris Holden-Ried (The Tudors, Underworld: Awakening) returns as Light Fae shape-shifter Dyson; 2014 CSA Fan Choice Award for Favourite Canadian Screen Star winner Zoie Palmer (The Guard, Instant Star) as human doctor Lauren; Skarsten (The Vow, Flashpoint) as Tamsin, the reborn Valkyrie warrior; Rick Howland (Billable Hours, Murdoch Mysteries) as Bo’s ancient and secretive grandfather Trick; Paul Amos (Bastards, Captain Canuck) as the devious Dark Fae Mesmer Vex; and Emmanuelle Vaugier (Two and a Half Men, Smallville) as the Morrigan, the sultry leader of the Dark Fae.
