Syfy Channel has picked up the rights to air the third season of Continuum, the Canadian hit that features several former Stargate actors.
The series was renewed for Season Three in June by its home network, Canada’s Showcase. Like Season Two it will reportedly be comprised of 13 episodes.
The season premiere in the U.S. drew 1.42 million viewers (up slightly from the first season). After slipping a bit, last week’s episode was back up to 1.33 million viewers, and so far this year the show is averaging 728,000 viewers in the key Adults 18 to 49 demographic for Syfy.
Continuum stars Rachel Nichols as Kiera Cameron, a police officer from the future who has been sent back in time to the present day — along with a group of ruthless terrorists. With her knowledge of the future, her tech, and her training, Kiera must protect present and stop Liber8 from altering the future she knows.
Victor Webster and Erik Knudsen co-star.
The show also features Stargate‘s Lexa Doig (“Carolyn Lam”), Jennifer Spence (“Lisa Park”), Roger R. Cross (“Captain Conner”), Brian Markinson (“Lotan”), and others from the Vancouver film community. Amanda Tapping (“Samantha Carter”) directed Season Two’s penultimate episode, which aired last week in Canada.
Catch new episodes of Continuum Fridays at 10/9c on Syfy Channel! Season Three is expected to begin next spring.
