Season 5 of Lost Girl will be the last

Anna Silk announced via Youtube video that the upcoming season of Lost Girl will be it's last. It will be 16 episodes split into two halves.
She also did a brief interview with EW.
I'm gonna miss the show. I'll admit last season wasn't all that great, but the I loved the first 3 seasons.

Re: Season 5 of Lost Girl will be the last

I was a latecomer to the series as i didn't start getting interested until the last half of season two, but i've been a fan ever since and gotten caught up.

I'm glad that the plan to end on a high note. That's the biggest benefit of knowing when the end is coming.

Disappointing news, but at least it's getting another season to wrap things up on its own terms.

Not crazy about the split season idea: Breaking Bad pulled it off, but as Mad Men has shown us, not every show benefits from splitting up a final season.

Re: Season 5 of Lost Girl will be the last

It depends on how significant the break in the middle is. Some shows can split it up and it doesn't affect things much. But then you get something like Doctor Who Season 6, where the "A Good Man Goes to War"/"Lets Kill Hitler" break just kinda disrupts everything like a giant rock in the middle of the season.

How are they going to do the DVDs? 1 full season set? 2 half season sets? Both?

Lost Girl is one of my favorite shows, so I'm a little heartbroken right now. Although, maybe it's for the best. The show has never quite been able to live up to the edgy, sexually charged energy of Season 1. And to be perfectly honest, Season 4 was a train wreck. And the whole Lauren/Bo/Dyson/Tamsin/whoever love triangle ("love square"? "love polygon"?) can't go on forever. Bo needs to either make a decision or just let the orgy happen.

But I'm not sure how I'll be able to cope without my regular dose of Kenzi-goodness!

Re: Season 5 of Lost Girl will be the last

BTW, I'm impressed with their timing. Just when I was shifting all of my fan energies back to Doctor Who, they start giving me Lost Girl on the brain again!

Oh, gods, don't remind me of the train...

You're right, of course. If season 5 doesn't improve considerably on season 4's writing, I doubt I'll be able to stick with it to the end.

Re: Season 5 of Lost Girl will be the last

Yeah, I'm not surprised they have announced this as the last season.

The writing hasn't really developed the series concept beyond what we got in Season 1-3. The characters themselves have been about the only reason to watch, but they just haven't found good ways to integrate them with what has passed for a plot line over Season 4.

As series goes though, Kensi, Trick, & Hale are great examples of characters with more to offer than they've really had a chance to show.

There has never been a Syfy show that has lasted more than 5 seasons, so this isn't a shock.

Last season was indeed a mess. Here's hoping they go out on a high note.

It's a Canadian import, not Syfy originated...😋

Yeah, I'll definitely miss Kenzi. I hope Ksenia Solo can get a new gig soon.

Aw, I'm gonna miss this crazy acid-trip of a show. I get a kick out of it pretty much no matter what they do. But at least we have another sixteen to look forward to.

Hate to tell you this but both Being Human shows have been over for a while now.

US finale was in April of 2014
