Powerful Mondays are back for Syfy once January rolls around.
Not only will “Being Human” return for its highly anticipated second season, but the cable channel will debut its Canadian import “Lost Girl” as the lead-out.
The series, starring Anna Silk and Zoie Palmer, will debut Jan. 16 at 10 p.m. ET. Syfy acquired two seasons of the show, consisting of 26 episodes, from Showcase Television, which has aired the show in Canada from its Toronto base.
“Lost Girl” stars Silk as Bo, a succubus who feeds off of sexual energy, who learned of her abilities when she fatally drained her first boyfriend.
The series also stars Kris Holden-Ried, Ksenia Solo, Rick Howland and K.C. Collins.
The announcement was made during the annual Syfy Digital Press Tour, taking place once again in Orlando, Fla. Earlier in the day, the channel announced it would be premiering all three of its Christmas specials on the same night. Holiday outings of “Eureka,” “Haven” and “Warehouse 13” will air Dec. 6 beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Syfy.
This will be the final Christmas episode of “Eureka,” which will end its solid run on the channel next year. The episode will take an animation approach with everything from the classic Rudolph telemovie to “South Park,” series star Colin Ferguson told reporters Monday. It will feature an all-star special guest lineup that includes Jim Parsons, Edward James Olmos, Chris Parnell and Matt Frewer.
“Haven” will do its first-ever holiday episode, where everyone in the New England town thinks it’s Christmas, even though it’s July. No one seems to notice that it’s the wrong time of year except for Emily Rose’s character of Audrey Parker. She has to work to try and set things right, especially when people start disappearing into thin air.
Eddie McClintock will be the focus of “Warehouse 13’s” “The Greatest Gift” after Pete Lattimer is hit in the head by an artifact, and finds out he was never born. It’s inspired by “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “The Greatest Gift” in an episode directed by series showrunner Jack Kenny.
All three episodes will take place outside of the shows’ continuity, meaning you will see things that you probably wouldn’t be expecting after the shows’ respective finales this year.
