TORONTO (December 19, 2013) – Hot on the heels of being named 2013’s Channel of the Year by Playback magazine, Space takes on the New Year with a killer line-up of returning favourites and new signature series. Kicking off 2014 is Space’s action-packed, original thriller BITTEN, premiering Saturday, Jan. 11 at 9 p.m. ET. Based on the New York Times best-selling novels by Canadian author Kelley Armstrong, BITTEN is set in a world where werewolves live undetected amongst humans. Toronto’s Laura Vandervoort (SMALLVILLE, Ted) sinks her claws into the role as the world’s only female werewolf, Elena Michaels, in this dead sexy, one-hour original series.

The BITTEN pack left to right: Joel Keller as Pete, Paulino Nunes as Antonio, Steve Lund as Nick, Michael Xavier as Logan, Laura Vandervoort as Elena, Greyston Holt as Clay, and Greg Bryk as Jeremy

Fan favourites return to Space in January with the Season 4 premiere of BEING HUMAN beginning Monday Jan. 13 at 9 p.m. ET. Following its most-watched season in history on Space, FACE OFF returns with a sixth season of make-up magic and creature creations, Tuesday, Jan. 14 at 9 p.m. ET.

Keeping things real on Tuesdays is the all-new, competitive series OPPOSITE WORLDS, premiering Tuesday, Jan. 21 at 10 p.m. ET. In this edgy, 12-episode unscripted series, 14 people from all walks of life are mixed together in two opposing teams. Each team lives in a separate world, one in the “past”, and one in the “future.” Two episodes each week see competitors battle to the finish, with live elimination rounds airing Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET, beginning Jan. 22.

Below is a chronological listing of Space’s January programming. All programming is subject to change (all times ET; visit Space.ca to confirm local broadcast times).

BITTENSpace Original Series – Premieres Jan. 11 at 9 pm ET

Shot on location in Toronto, Hamilton, and Hespeler, ON, the series follows Elena’s (Laura Vandervoort) dangerous struggle between the new life she’s created and her loyalty to The Pack. In the premiere episode entitled “Summons,” after the mauled body of a girl shows up on the outskirts of Bear Valley in upstate New York, Elena Michaels (Laura Vandervoort), the world’s only female werewolf, is forced to choose between her new “human” life in Toronto with new love, Philip (Paul Greene) and her previous life with The Pack, at Pack Headquarters, Stonehaven. Even though it’s been a year since she abandoned her life among the werevolves, Elena still feels the sting of having forsaken her old world, while trying to build a new and “normal” life.

BEING HUMAN – Season 4 – Premieres Monday Jan. 13 at 9 p.m. ET

Season 4 picks up four months from last season’s shocking finale. For Aidan (Sam Witwer, The Clone Wars), Sally (Meaghan Rath, Cyberbully), Josh (Sam Huntington, Superman Returns), and Nora (Kristen Hager, Wanted), the past is about to come back to haunt them. Aidan and Nora struggle to save Josh, who is trapped in his wolf form.

At the same time, an unbelievable visitor collides with Aidan, forcing him to make impossible choices between the people he loves the most. Meanwhile, Sally, having been dragged down into her death spot by Witch Donna (Amy Aquino, White Orleander), finds herself trapped and at the mercy of her foe. Sally’s newly imbued magical powers could change everything.

FACE OFF – Season 6 – Premieres Tuesday Jan. 14 at 9 p.m. ET

Returning to the makeup room for the sixth season, FACE OFF introduces 14 new makeup artists in what will be FACE OFF’s boldest season yet. The contestants will face extreme challenges that will inspire them to create the most magnificent characters and creatures in FACE OFF history.

OPPOSITE WORLDS – Season 1 – Premieres Tuesday, Jan. 21 at 10 p.m. ET

The future team lives in a dreamland where every desire is met with a push of a button. The past team, however, live in a constant struggle for survival. Each week, players compete in a series of challenges to determine who lives in the past, and who lives in the future.  Adding to the drama is a glass wall dividing the house into the two distinct environments, allowing the teams to watch, envy and dread each other’s every move.

Viewers can tune in for the live elimination episodes on Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. ET, beginning Jan. 22.
