BITTEN: THE FINAL SEASON REVIEWED
“Bitten” concludes, as Elena finally makes peace with being a werewolf. Everything is going great until her father returns with his Russian gang of werewolves. Slowly but surely, secrets are exposed and the family must mend itself. But, it’s a low grade Sci-Fi horror show about werewolves and family dramatics. If you had a mopey teen girl in the lead, it would already be making bank on Freeform.
This show never found a major audience due to playing to the base appeal of hardcore fandom. Laura Vandervoort still has fan appeal for playing Supergirl among other characters. It’s just that all of her major roles have that Canadian dramatic tinge. If you don’t know what that is, just watch some very Canadian TV series that break out in America. The ones that survive adapt to their lower continental neighbors. The ones that don’t survive keep that lower knock-off feel that seems to permeate most of Vandervoort’s work. That’s not to say Bitten and its ilk are bad. It just isn’t Tier 1 material.

The Plot Thus Far
With the shocking introduction of Elena’s father and half-siblings, a family she never knew existed, Season 3 of Bitten will force Elena into a vicious battle against a merciless Pack of Russian werewolves hell bent on destroying her, her family and her Pack. While Bitten’s first and second seasons brought the real-world tone of Sons of Anarchy and the darker supernatural elements of True Detective, Season 3 delves into the theme of duty vs. family also explored in The Americans and Bloodline.
