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.
