Set to launch late January on space.ca, The Undoing supports the storyline for the second season of BITTEN, delving into the rich backstory of a mysterious new character revealed in Season 2, by releasing a series of “found” materials, original photos, videos, and footage from the series. A Bell Fund initiative, with support from No Equal Entertainment, Entertainment One Television (eOne), and Hoodwink Entertainment, The Undoing will populate new content throughout the season in conjunction with each new episode.
Season 1 of BITTEN tested Elena’s strength and pushed her to embrace her fierce inner wolf. From the Mutt uprising orchestrated by Pack leader Jeremy Danvers’ father Malcolm, to finding the severed head of ex-boyfriend Phillip (Paul Greene) in her bed, Elena is out for blood. Reunited with The Pack and her true love Clay Danvers, nothing stands in the way of protecting her family and hunting down those who seek to destroy them. Season 2 sees The Pack on the hunt for Malcolm (James McGowan, DEGRASSI: THE NEXT GENERATION). In their quest to capture him, they uncover a more sinister force that threatens the existence of the werewolf species.
In the Season 2 premiere episode, “Bad Blood” (Saturday, Feb. 7 at 9 p.m. ET/10 p.m. PT.), Elena and The Pack are on the hunt for Malcolm. Meanwhile, back at Stonehaven, Jeremy receives an ultimatum from the Council of International Alphas that challenges his leadership over North America.
