From a media release:
SHOWCASE SETS DATE FOR HOTLY ANTICIPATED RETURN OF CONTINUUM
- Season two world broadcast premiere on Sunday, April 21 at 9pm ET/PT
The wait is finally over. Showcase’s number one series, Continuum, returns this spring as announced earlier today by Rachel Nichols in a video released to fans via @showcasedotca. The critically acclaimed drama nominated for five Canadian Screen Awards, including Best Dramatic Series, stars Nichols (Alex Cross) as Kiera Cameron, a cop from the future who finds herself trapped in present-day Vancouver. Featuring 13 hour-long episodes, the second season of Continuum premieres on Sunday, April 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT exclusively on Showcase.
Debuting to over 1 million viewers (2+)*, the first season of the critically acclaimed series saw Kiera Cameron (Nichols) searching for convicted terrorists from the future, known as Liber8, with the help of Vancouver detective, Carlos Fonnegra (Victor Webster; Castle). With unexpected assistance from teen tech genius Alec Sadler (Erik Knudsen; Scream 4), Kiera desperately tried to bring down the terrorists before they changed the course of history forever in the explosive finale.
In search for answers, the highly anticipated sophomore season continues Kiera’s uneasy alliance with Detective Carlos Fonnegra, and sees her grapple with the big question that closed the first season – why was she sent there? While Alec struggles to understand the implications of the mysterious message he received from his future self, the Liber8 terrorists become more strategic and even more lethal as they seek to ward off what they see as the seeds of a disastrous future.
Rounding out the cast are Stephen Lobo (Smallville, Little Mosque On The Prairie), Roger Cross (Fringe, Arrow), Lexa Doig (V, Stargate SG-I), Omari Newton (Blue Mountain State, Sophie) and Luvia Petersen (The L Word).
