From a media release:
Reunion Pictures, in association with Shaw Media, today announced that production is underway on season three of Continuum, Showcase’s Canadian original action-drama about a policewoman from 2077 who travels back in time to track down escaped convicts from her future. Season three of Continuum is slated to premiere on Showcase in March 2014.
In season three of Continuum, Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols; Criminal Minds, Alias) faces the immediate consequences of Alec Sadler’s (Erik Knudsen; Jericho, Scream 4) betrayal at the end of season two – when he disappeared in a flash of light with the time travel device Kiera hoped might send her home. Alec’s impulsive decision sets in motion a chain of events, which pushes Kiera into a shocking alliance with a former enemy.
Kiera must also contend with a newly strategic Liber8 organization, and a growing darkness in her police partner, Carlos Fonnegra (Victor Webster; Castle, Melrose Place). Ultimately, all roads lead through young Alec Sadler, and with his genius never having been more tested, his choices force Kiera – and everyone – to examine all they hold dear.
“Season three of Continuum will raise the stakes and expand the universe of our show in ways that will surprise and engage our fans,” said creator/executive producer Simon Barry. “Kiera’s journey brings her experiences that test her beliefs and challenge her resolve. The future is not what it used to be.”
New to the cast this season is Rachael Crawford (Alphas,The Firm) who joins as a guest star in a multiple episode arc. Returning cast include Stephen Lobo (Smallville, Little Mosque On The Prairie), Lexa Doig (V, Stargate SG-I), Omari Newton (Blue Mountain State, Sophie), Luvia Petersen (The L Word) and Terry Chen (Bates Motel, Combat Hospital).
Continuum is created by Executive Producer Simon Barry (The Art of War) while DGC Award winner Patrick Williams (Shattered, Smallville) is Executive Producer and Director. Reunion Pictures partners Tom Rowe, Lisa Richardson and Matthew O’Connnor are Executive Producers.
Filmed on location in Vancouver, BC, Continuum is developed and produced by Reunion Pictures. International distribution is handled by Endemol. The series is now seen internationally in over 50 countries.

Is Continuum juggling too many plots for its own good?
Continuum’s second season continues to blow me away. Every episode has been fantastic. But at the same time, I keep suspecting that this show doesn’t really have a coherent mythos, and all this complexity will eventually collapse under its own weight. Friday night’s “Second Wave” provided a bit of evidence. Continue reading.

How does time travel work in Showcase’s ‘Continuum’?
Continuum hasn’t defined its rules for time travel. On the one hand, no set rules means that the show can put things into place as needed and as the story progresses. But on the other hand, the audience doesn’t know what is at stake for the characters if we aren’t sure how their actions affect the future (or the past). What we can do is look at possible time travel theories based on what happened in the show so far. My go-to process with new time travel stories is to figure them out by using older stories where we know how time travel works. Continue reading.
