Showcase has unsurprisingly renewed Continuum for a 13- episode second season.
Barbara Williams, Senior Vice President, Content, Shaw Media, expressed her joy in a press release:
“We are proud to green-light such a prolific ratings hit and original series for a second season, and to continue Kiera’s journey through time for our dedicated viewers.”
The serial-procedural follows Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols), a cop from the year 2077 who winds up in present-day along with a group of criminals known as Liber8. Unable to get back to her own time, Kiera must work with her unwitting partner detective Carlos Fonnegra (Victor Webster) and tech whizz Alec Sadler (Erik Knudsen), to prevent Liber8 from changing the future and destroying any chance she has of getting home.
Having carved out a solid base from which to build, the 13-episode second season –which begins production in Vancouver in 2013 — will hopefully see the show move from to strength to strength.
UK viewers will also be able to catch Continuum on Syfy from September 27.
UPDATE: Following the Season 2 pickup in Canada, Continuum is set to air in the US on Syfy.
