Several familiar faces are headed back to a TV near you in Continuum, a brand new science fiction series debuting this week on the Showcase channel in Canada.
Rachel Nichols (Alias) stars in the series as Kiera Cameron, a cop from the year 2077 who is swept back in time to the present day. Her mission is to stop a group of eight fanatical terrorists from the future, who are plotting to wipe out the future world as she knows it.
Tony Amendola (“Bra’tac”) also appears in at least the first episode, as a terrorist leader. Also watch for Brian Markinson (Caprica), who played the artificial lifeform Lotan in SG-1‘s “Scorched Earth.”
Nichols recently appeared opposite Jason Momoa (Stargate Atlantis) in Conan the Barbarian. She played Rachel Gibson in the final season of Alias, and has also appeared on Criminal Minds and the feature film G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.
As the series shoots in Vancouver, British Columbia, more familiar faces from our favorite Vancouver shows are certain to show up in the 10 episodes that make up Season One.
Take a look at the trailer for Continuum below! The series premieres Sunday, May 27 at 9/8c on Showcase in Canada. We’re hoping for word on when viewers in the U.S. and elsewhere might be able to see the series.
UPDATE: Here’s a new, extended trailer for Continuum —
