From a media release:
Rachel Nichols and Victor Webster headline ensemble cast of the returning hit series
Reunion Pictures, in association with Shaw Media, announced today that production has started on Season 2 of Continuum, the original one hour drama-action series about a policewoman from 2077 who travels back in time and teams with a present day cop to track down escaped convicts from her future. Continuum Season 2 is slated to premiere in Canada on Shaw Mediaâ€™s specialty channel Showcase in April 2013.
Continuum debuted on Showcase to an audience of over 1 million viewers (2+), shattering all previous premiere records on the network, making it the #1 specialty series of the summer. Last summer, Continuum averaged #1 on Sundays, dominating its timeslot across all key demos. The epic first season concluded with the most-watched finale in Showcase history.*
In Season 1 of Continuum, Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols; Criminal Minds, Alias), a cop from the year 2077 found herself trapped in present day Vancouver, searching for convicted terrorists from the future, known as Liber8. With unexpected assistance from teen tech genius Alec Sadler (Erik Knudsen; Jericho, Scream 4), Kiera desperately tried to bring down the terrorists before they changed the course of history forever. In Season 2 Kiera continues her uneasy alliance with her partner, Vancouver Police detective Carlos Fonnegra (Victor Webster; Castle, Melrose Place) and grapples with the big question that closed the first season â€“ why was I sent here? While Alec struggles to understand the implications of the mysterious message he received from his future self in last seasonâ€™s finale, the Liber8 terrorists become more strategic, although just as lethal.
â€œSeason 2 of Continuum will see Kiera pitted against Liber8 while trying to find a way back to 2077,â€ says creator/executive producer Simon Barry, â€œThis season will feature the best elements of Season 1 in addition to some new characters and storylines that expand the universe of Continuum.â€
â€œWe’re absolutely thrilled about the great viewer response for the first season and know that fans are eagerly awaiting the second season,â€ says Reunion Pictures Tom Rowe. â€œSimon Barryâ€™s vision, top notch writing and a terrific cast are captivating the North American and international audiences.â€
Rounding out the cast is Stephen Lobo (Smallville, Little Mosque On The Prairie), Roger Cross (The Gates, Fringe), Lexa Doig (V, Stargate SG-I), Omari Newton (Blue Mountain State, Sophie) and Luvia Petersen (The L Word) .
Continuum is created by Executive Producer Simon Barry (The Art of War) while DGC award winner Patrick Williams (Shattered, DeGrassi:The Next Generation) is Executive Producer and Director. Reunion Pictures partners Tom Rowe, Lisa Richardson and Matthew Oâ€™Connnor are Executive Producers
