The dedication of the Lost Girl fan base has not been lost upon star Anna Silk.
"Leading up to our first-season finale, we did a Twitter campaign where each of us Tweeted for a day," Silk said. "So we got to be up close and personal with our fans, the people who had been watching the show.
"The day I did it, I got so many great messages, and so many very specific questions. People were very invested in every moment of the show, in every relationship. They were talking about it and debating it and were voicing their opinions in chat rooms, going back and forth.
"I love that the show has generated discussion."
More discussion is sure to ensue as Lost Girl, a slick Canadian supernatural crime drama, returns for its second season, Sunday, Sept. 4 on Showcase.
Silk is back as lead character Bo, a powerful yet well-intentioned succubus who survives by feeding off sexual energy.
As Bo gets stronger and learns more about who she actually is in season two, her resolve to stay free in the fantastical light-and-dark world of Fae will be challenged.
In the season-two premiere, Bo and Dyson (played by Kris Holden-Ried) must deal with the consequences of what the latter gave up to aid the former in her dramatic confrontation with her mother in the season-one finale.
Lost Girl also stars the irresistibly quirky Ksenia Solo as Kenzi, Zoie Palmer as Lauren, Rick Howland as Trick and K.C. Collins as Hale.
"I think we can expect more of what the audience loved in season one," Silk said. "The episodes in season two are so rich, and we meet some really interesting characters that tie things together in a really interesting way.
"People just have to watch, because I think it's going to be a great season. We built a platform to go from in season one and we've kind of brought it up to the next level.
"Every time I see a new script, I am not even close to the point where I'm going, 'Yeah, whatever.' I'm always like, 'So this is the crime we're investigating this week? Wow!' It's so fun."
Lost Girl increasingly has developed a Buffy the Vampire Slayer feel, and that's a huge compliment.
"I was a big fan of Buffy when it came out," Silk said. "I loved the camp and I loved the serious moments that could then go into something very funny. I think we have a little bit of that, too.
"I also loved the Underworld movies, and I was a big Alias fan back in the day. That delved into the supernatural and also had a really strong female character as a lead (played by Jennifer Garner)."
Well, courtesy of Silk, Lost Girl has a really strong female character as a lead, too.
"I think the core group of fans that we got very quickly is there for the long haul," Silk said.
"Of course, I hope season two gets some new people watching as well. The buzz that is out there certainly will help."
