Bitten is a Canadian supernatural drama television series that premiered on Syfy in 2014. Based on the Women of the Otherworld book series by Kelley Armstrong, the show follows Elena Michaels (Laura Vandervoort), the only female werewolf in existence, as she navigates life and love in the world of werewolves.
The series is set in the fictional town of Bear Valley, New York, and revolves around Elena's struggle to balance her life as a photographer in Toronto with her duties as a member of the Pack, the family of wolves she belongs to. The Pack is led by Jeremy Danvers (Greg Bryk), a wise and powerful alpha male who values tradition and loyalty above all else. Greyston Holt plays Clayton Danvers, Jeremy's hot-headed and impulsive protÃ©gÃ©, who also happens to be Elena's ex-boyfriend and the man who turned her into a werewolf against her will.
The first season of Bitten introduces viewers to Elena's backstory, as well as the hierarchy and politics of the Pack. Elena, who has been living in Toronto for the past three years, is reluctant to return to Bear Valley and face her past, but circumstances force her hand. Her best friend and fellow Pack member, Philip McAdams (Paul Greene), is killed under mysterious circumstances, and Elena feels compelled to investigate. Once she returns to Bear Valley, she is reunited with Clayton and the rest of the Pack, and must work together with them to unravel the mystery of Philip's death.
Along the way, Elena also grapples with her feelings for Philip's brother, the human journalist Logan Jonsen (Michael Xavier), as well as her complicated relationship with Clayton. The two share a powerful bond that never quite goes away, despite their tumultuous past.
The second season of Bitten delves deeper into the supernatural mythology of the show, introducing new kinds of creatures and expanding on the lore of werewolf society. Elena struggles with her position as the only female werewolf, and must prove herself to the rest of the Pack in order to maintain their respect. Clayton also faces challenges, when his estranged father Malcolm (James McGowan) comes back into his life and threatens to upset the delicate balance of power within the Pack.
The third and final season of Bitten sees Elena and the Pack facing their greatest threat yet, as they deal with the aftermath of the events of the previous season. New characters are introduced, including a powerful and dangerous witch named Sasha Antonov (Anna Hopkins), who has her own agenda when it comes to dealing with the Pack. Elena and Clayton's relationship is put to the test once again, as they struggle with their past and what their future together may hold.
Overall, Bitten is a thrilling and engaging series that will delight fans of the supernatural genre. The chemistry between the actors is palpable, and the storyline is gripping and suspenseful. Viewers will be drawn into Elena's world and will root for her as she fights to protect her loved ones and assert her place in the Pack.
