Syfy Channel will stick with C.P.S. Protector Kiera Cameron for another season. The network has picked up the U.S. broadcast rights to Continuum from Canadian broadcaster Showcase.
Season Two of the sci-fi series will begin on June 7, not too far behind the conclusion of Season One on Syfy (March 18). It will be comprised of 13 episodes, up from Season One’s ten.
Continuum has reportedly averaged 1.35 million viewers for the cable network (537,000 adults in the 18-to-49 demographic). The new season will move to the Friday 10 p.m. time slot.
The series follows Cameron (Rachel Nichols), a police officer from the year 2077 who is sent back in time to the present day along with a group of violent terrorists. There she attempts to blend in and joins the local police force, partnering herself with Carlos Fonnegra (Victor Webster) and young genius Alec Sadler (Erik Knudsen).
The show is set in Vancouver (where it also films), and features many familiar faces from Stargate — including Lexa Doig (“Carolyn Lam”), Richard Cross (“Captain Conner”), and Tony Amendola (“Bra’tac”) as members of Liber8. Jennifer Spence (“Lisa Park”) and Brian Markinson (“Lotan”) are also recurring.
“Season Two of Continuum will see Kiera pitted against Liber8 while trying to find a way back to 2077,” series creator and executive producer Simon Barry said. “This season will feature the best elements of Season One in addition to some new characters and storylines that expand the universe of Continuum.”
Continuum will air first in Canada, with the second season set to start on Showcase on April 21. Learn more about the show over at our sister site, SciFi Stream!
