'Continuum' renewed by Syfy


Given that the series deals with time-travel, I am sure the cast and crew of Continuum already knew that it would be renewed today by Syfy for a second season, but it still has to feel good to hear the news from the horse's mouth.

The network today announced a second season for the drama, which is produced in Canada. Thirteen episodes have been ordered from Reunion Pictures.

The series stars Rachel Nichols as Cameron, a police officer from the future who ends up trapped in modern-day Vancouver (where she is forced to watch Canucks games - okay, not really.). The star co-stars Victor Webster as detective Carlos Fonnegra and Erik Knudsen (Jericho) as Alec Sadler, a teen tech wunderkind.

The series airs in Canada on Showcase and will begin its second season on Syfy on June 7. The first season has been a modest hit for the network, debuting in January of this year on Monday nights and averaging 1.35 million total viewers. Not a home run, but a solid double.

In the second season of the program, Cameron continues where she left off and continues trying to stop a cataclysmic terrorist event from occurring. 

Executive producers are series creator Simon Barry, Pat Williams and Tom Rowe.

Just last week I was watching them film a scene in Vancouver as my office was on the same block. Love this show.

Just to be perfectly clear: season two of Continuum has already been filmed, and will be broadcasting in Canada, starting April 21, 2013. (So, I suspect most of those reading this will be able to watch it at that time — luckily, The Scene does not discriminate.)

Indeed, SyFy's numbers don't include US viewers that saw it from the Canadian airings (or on the Internet) - after all, many SyFy viewers are technologically literate. It sounds like SyFy will air the second season alongside Showcase, so there might be a bump in the numbers.

Doesn't really matter, the show would have went on without them anyway. All they've renewed is their license to air it in the states... a year after it's aired in canada. Even if they hadn't renewed their licence another network would have picked it up, Continuum is pretty popular.
