In a interview for The Watercooler , Michelle Lovretta described her reaction to being asked to create Lost Girl:. When Prodigy our studio asked me to create a show about some kind of bisexual superhero who uses sex as part of her arsenal, my first thought was "hell, yes!
The challenge was to create a fun, sex-positive world that celebrates provocative cheesecake for everyone, without falling into base stereotypes or misogynistic or misandristic exploitation along the way Bo has lots of sex, with men, women, humans, Fae, threesomes It's also rare to have a female lead who is so honestly sexual, without judgment I think the single element I will remain proudest of is just that we've been able to create and put out into the world a sex positive universe where a person's sexual orientation is unapologetically present and yet neither defines them as a character, nor the show as a whole I felt it was crucial to also demonstrate that sex and romance aren't the only ways that Bo measures a relationship's worth, to give the show balance Fans may have noticed that Kenzi clarified her hetero orientation at the end of ep That line was necessary because I was determined to protect their platonic-yet-epic BFF-ness, so I made sure it was written in as canon.
Partly, this was to debunk the gay-panic cliche that bisexual people sexualize everyone, and are incapable of platonic friendship. But there was another, simpler and more personal reason: I think friendship is the fifth element So, hidden in amongst all the romance and cleavage and threesomes, the Lost Girl Bo and Kenzi relationship is my own little love poem to all the BFFs out there who do it right.
Series creator Michelle Lovretta   teamed with industry veteran Peter Mohan  to co-showrun Season 1. Lovretta and Mohan left on good terms after the first season to pursue other opportunities, and the Season 2 showrunner role was split between Lost Girl writer Jeremy Boxen  and another industry veteran, Grant Rosenberg. Emily Andras,  who had been involved with the series as a writer and consulting producer since Season 1, became showrunner effective Season 3.
In an interview for The Huffington Post after the announcement by Syfy that it had renewed the show for a third season, Andras described what direction she would like to see Lost Girl go in the future:. Into a world where a bisexual protagonist is non-news. I'm so proud of the comedic ambitions of Lost Girl , that it's dedicated genre [fare] that doesn't take itself too seriously, but I also love exploring the shades of gray; the moral ambiguity of characters who may live forever and their relationships with mortals who will not. In a December interview with the Writers Guild of Canada , Andras detailed the flow of the Lost Girl showrunner title,  followed with a second interview in the guild's magazine, Canadian Screenwriter.
Lauren Lewis, the theme of death, and the love triangle between "the wolf" and "the doctor". Michael Grassi,  who joined the show as a writer and consulting producer for the fourth season, succeeded Emily Andras as showrunner for Season 5. Andras moved into the position of executive consulting producer on the series. The sexuality presented in Lost Girl is an important element of the show's narrative.
The lead character, Bo, is a bisexual succubus  that survives, thrives, and heals by feeding on the chi life force of male and female humans, and Fae — either by drawing it out through their mouths, or by absorbing the energy created from sexual contact with them. Casual sex is intrinsic and depictions of sexual encounters have also included threesomes. Throughout the series, Bo has two primary romantic relationships: Dyson, a heterosexual shapeshifter Light Fae that transforms from wolf to human-like form; and Lauren, a lesbian human doctor and medical researcher who is a pledged servant of the leader of the Light clan.
As a succubus, however, Bo is unable to prevent the fundamental requirements of her nature from hindering emotional want. In Season 3, Bo asked Lauren to join her in a physically monogamous relationship, but her feeding needs ultimately made it unsustainable. Other main characters in Lost Girl are heterosexual Kenzi, Trick, Hale , while the sexual range of recurring characters varies. For example, the leader of the Dark Fae clan, The Morrigan, was seduced by Bo in Season 2, and Lauren in Season 4; the Dark mesmer, Vex, was shown initially as a BDSM submissive with a dominatrix and the first explicitly sexual disclosure about him was in a bisexual fantasy in Season 5.

The Dark valkyrie, Tamsin, seduced Dyson in Season 4; and in Season 5 offered Bo her random one-night stand male after she had sex with him, followed by her commencing a sexual affair with Bo. In the Lost Girl universe, sexuality is a natural, judgement-free affirmation of life. The sex-positive series has been praised by critics and fans for its seamless portrayal of amorous desire and groundbreaking representation of bisexuality — and for not labeling sexual orientations shown in episodes as straight, bisexual, lesbian, or gay.
In an interview with GayCalgary Magazine , Rachel Skarsten expressed what distinguished Lost Girl in its treatment of romantic relations:. One of the things we pride ourselves in with Lost Girl is, it's not about this heterosexual couple, this homosexual couple — it's just about the relationship; about two people who love each other, and I think that is one of the things that makes our show really special.
A character's sexual identity in Lost Girl is precisely what audiences see without needing explanations in the storyline.

The pilot, however, proves unexpectedly fun—a sort of diluted version of True Blood The vampire boom of the mid-aughts was followed by the zombie bonanza of the last couple of years; all in all, we're awash in various undead and otherworldly creatures But one of the reasons Lost Girl has made such a big impression on me It has fun with its premise But don't expect Lost Girl to be perfect: Bo's universe can seem constricted at times, the weekly clients and monsters aren't always interesting and occasionally the storytelling has abrupt moments.
But my occasional complaints have been overwhelmed by my growing appreciation of what creator Michelle Lovretta has done with this light drama: She's created a Hero's Journey with a self-confident woman — a succubus, no less — at the center of it Lovretta has done something subversively impressive with Lost Girl. She's built a whole show around the idea of a woman who is learning just how much she can or should take from others, and how much she can rely on herself.
