Spring is right around the corner, and fortunately, so is the premiere of Bitten and the final season of Lost Girl. Also on the schedule is the premiere of new series Olympus. I was admittedly not too sure about that one, but with the writer of TinMan, Alice, and Neverland on board, and a pretty interesting cast, I’m going to check it out.
We’ll also be getting a new unscripted ghost hunting series, Haunting: Australia, and of course a new Original Movie, Lake Placid vs Anaconda.
Here are all the deets:
