Based on the Women of the Otherworld novels by Kelley Armstrong, Bitten stars Vandervoort as the lone female werewolf in existence. Desperate to escape both a world she never wanted to be part of and the man who turned her into a werewolf, Elena has taken refuge in a new city. But when bodies start turning up in her pack’s backyard, Elena returns to the werewolves’ ancestral domain, realizing that when push comes to shove, she’ll stop at nothing to defend her pack.

  • I hope she’s not the kind of wolf-wolf werewolf, where they get an actual wolf to play the part. That’s always disappointing.

    • Well, who/what else would play the part of the wolf then…???

      • Prostetics. Watch American Werewolf in London, The Howling, and Underworld.

      • Teen Wolf does cool prosthetic make up effects in the transformation scenes and all that.

      • Those kind of werewolves are boring. Everyone is doing them like that now.

        • The book’s from 2000, it’s not exactly copying off of more recent stuff.

          • Didn’t say it was. I’m just saying that the use of real wolves is boring to me. I prefer it when they use prosthetics, like in American Werewolf and Teen Wolf, or CGI like in The Wolfman remake and Underworld.

  • The transformation leading up to the guy in Hemlock Grove turning into a werewolf was amazing, but then he becomes an actual wolf, and that was super disappointing because it’s become cliche. In contrast, both the transformation in American Werewolf and the look of the wolf are both amazing.

  • I prefer real wolves to be honest, bigger sized ones. Anyway, I hope the tv series lives up to the books, they are my favourite paranormal romance books. Which isn’t that hard since I am not a huge fan of paranormal romance, but I loved Bitten.

  • Eh. I like Laura Vandervoort, but I’m not sure about this. I might check it out once it hits Netflix though. Too bad they didn’t cast Laura rather than Katie Cassidy on Arrow – I’ve often thought she would have made a great Black Canary.

  • I’ll still check it out, but that clip did nothing for me.

  • I’ll going to check it out hope stay true to the books but put their spin on it I just happy we have a another show with a female lead who isn’t a damsel in distress

  • Even though this is off topic I love Arrow and they doing a spin off with Flash I think that great but can we get a Woman Superhero show

    • They tried WOnder Woman and Birds Of Prey – big failures. But Buffy was basically a woman Superhero show and that worked

  • I’ve seen an extended trailer of this and a long interview with Laura and the show runner about the show and I can’t wait to check it out. My only beef with the show is that the main character is named Elena–I might keep thinking about the annoying Elena Gilbert.

  • NO NO NO! I’m sick of the idea that werewolves turn into regular dog-like wolfs. I was going to watch but now have no interest.

  • These are fantastic books with exceptional character and plot development. I really hope those qualities come through on the show. I can’t wait to watch it and find out for myself!

  • I’d love to watch, but can’t. No cable TV here and syfy is locked down so that I couldn’t pay for access even if I wanted. Oh well. Idiots.

    Just like the Olympics. They are going to force me to pay someone overseas to watch instead of accepting my money.

    Perhaps it will come to netflix or amazon prime?

    • I think Netflix does get most of Syfy’s shows. Not sure about Amazon Prime. It takes a while though. A lot of times they don’t put the last season up until shortly before the new one airs. They do have the episodes for sale on iTunes and Amazon. And last I checked they were still putting episodes on Hulu (free) with a 30 day delay. Not great, but still quicker than waiting for Netflix I suppose.
