The first and second seasons of this hour-long supernatural series are coming your way in October and November from FUNimation.
One of those under-the-radar series that you might have heard of in recent months is the SyFy network show Lost Girl, which follows a young woman named Bo (Anna Silk) who discovers that she’s not only a succubus, but caught in the middle of an ongoing conflict among supernatural creatures that are vying to determine whether they should co-exist with or feed on the human race.
The first season will be available on DVD and Blu-ray October 23rd with the second season to follow November 13th. No word on pricing or what special features, if any, will be included in the set.
The Lost Girl announcement is part of FUNimation’s increasingly diverse forays into live-action content which has included in recent years several Japanese and Hong Kong features.

FUNimation Entertainment to release LOST GIRL on DVD & Blu-ray
SyFy Channel’s Hit Series available this Fall
Flower Mound, TX – June 18, 2012 – FUNimation Entertainment announced today that it has acquired the Blu-ray & DVD, DTO/DTR/EST, (and via digital carriers) PPV and VOD rights to the hit series, Lost Girl as seen on cable’s SyFy Channel and Showcase in Canada.
Lost Girl follows supernatural seductress Bo (Anna Silk: Being Erica; Billable Hours), a Succubus (a powerful female entity in folklore) who feeds off sexual energy. Raised by human parents, Bo had no reason to believe she was anything other than the girl next door – until she “drained” her first boyfriend to death.
Bo discovers she is one of the Fae, creatures of legend who pass as humans while secretly feeding off them. Faced with choosing between an allegiance to the Dark or
Light Fae clans, Bo takes the middle path between the human and Fae worlds while embarking on a mission to unlock the secrets of her origin.
Bo’s succubus nature tangles her in a sexy love-triangle with Dyson (Kris Holden-Reid: Ben Hur, The Bridge; The Tudors), a shape shifting Fae and homicide detective, and Lauren (Zoie Palmer: The Guard; Instant Star), a human doctor who has found a way through science to help give Bo the sexual self-control she’s been aching for.
Navigating this complicated life with Bo is her human confidante and street-smart survivor, Kenzi (Ksenia Solo: Black Swan; Life Unexpected).
Lost Girl was developed by Prodigy Pictures, in association with Shaw Media and Showcase. Executive producers are Jay Firestone, Emily Andras, Plato Fountidakis, and Paul Rapovski. James Thorpe is co-executive producer, Vanessa Piazza is co-producer and Wanda Chaffey is producer.
Season One will be released on October 23, 2012 with Season Two following on November 13, 2012.
