TORONTO, Aug. 6, 2014 /CNW/ - Space announced today that production has begun on Season 2 of its most-watched original drama series ever, BITTEN, featuring a new coven of witches. Commissioned by Space and produced by No Equal Entertainment, Entertainment One Television (eOne), and Hoodwink Entertainment, the 10-episode, second season of the one-hour thriller is set to premiere in 2015 on Space. Shot on location in Toronto, Hamilton, and Hespeler, Ont., Season 2 sees the return of Laura Vandervoort (SMALLVILLE, Ted) as Elena, the world's only female werewolf; Greg Bryk (A History Of Violence, ROOKIE BLUE) as the Alpha Pack leader Jeremy Danvers; and Greyston Holt (ALCATRAZ, Durham County) as passionate Clayton Danvers. Season 2 of BITTEN was acquired for U.S. broadcast by Syfy.

Season 2 also introduces a coven of witches who turn to the Pack for support. Tammy Isbell (SAVING HOPE) stars as the calm and level-headed coven leader, Ruth Winterbourne; Tommie-Amber Pirie (Michael: Tuesdays & Thursdays) is cast as Ruth's daughter, the outspoken spitfire, Paige Winterbourne; and Kiara Glasco (COPPER) stars as the young and impressionable, Savannah Levine. Returning to BITTEN are Steve Lund BEING ERICA, HAVEN as Nick Sorrentino and Michael Xavier (THE BEST YEARS) as Dr. Logan Jonsen.

"It's been truly gratifying to witness BITTEN become the success story we hoped it could be," said Corrie Coe, Senior Vice-President, Independent Production, Bell Media. "We had always hoped that fans of Kelley Armstrong's books would become fans of the television series, and it's wonderful that an even wider audience embraced the first season. Working with such talented cast, crew and production partners, we have no doubt that Season 2 will intrigue and delight an already rabid fan-base, and recruit new members to The Pack."

"We're thrilled to return to production with our brilliant cast and crew as well as our new coven of witches played by the talented trio Tammy, Tommie-Amber, and Kiara," commented Margaret O'Brien, President, eOne Television, Canada. "With the incredible support of our partners No Equal Entertainment and Hoodwink Entertainment and our broadcast partners Space and Syfy, this is sure to be another heart-stopping season."

"We are incredibly excited to be back in action and look forward to satiating the appetites of hungry fans by bringing more Pack adventures in Season 2," said J.B Sugar, Executive Producer, No Equal Entertainment. "Together with my partners at eOne, Hoodwink, and Bell Media, we are extremely proud of the cast we have built and couldn't be more pleased to be adding Tammy, Tommie, and Kiara to our talented ensemble."
