One of the Showcase network's most popular series is returning in January with season 3.

In addition to a new season starting up in 2013, a "Lost Girl" special called "Lost Girl ConFAEdential" will also be aired, with the cast and crew giving fans a glimpse into behind-the-scenes info about the show as well as a new mobile gaming app will be revealed.

"Lost Girl" follows supernatural seductress Bo (played by Anna Silk of "Being Erica," "Billable Hours"), a Succubus who feeds on the sexual energy of humans. Growing up with human parents, Bo has no reason to believe she's anything other than the girl next door – until she drains her boyfriend to death in their first sexual encounter. Once she hits the road, Bo discovers she is one of the Fae, creatures of legend and folklore, who pass as humans while feeding off them secretly, as they have for millennia. Relieved yet horrified to find out that she is not alone, Bo is faced with choosing an allegiance between the Dark and Light Fae clans. Bo decides to take the middle path between the humans and the Fae while embarking on a personal mission to unlock the secrets of her origin. With the help of her human sidekick, Kenzi (Ksenia Solo of "Black Swan," "Life Unexpected"), Bo takes on a challenge every week helping a Fae or human client who comes to her to solve a mystery, or to right a wrong. Already in a love triangle with Dyson (Kris Holden-Ried of "Ben Hur," "The Bridge," "The Tudors"), a sexy Fae working as a human police detective, and the beautiful human scientist, Lauren (Zoie Palmer of "The Guard," "Instant Star") who works for the Fae, Bo’s love life is about to get even more complicated.

The third season of "Lost Girl" will be aired on Sunday, January 6 at 9pm.
