It’s the end of the road for time travelling cop Kiera Cameron. Showcase announced Monday night that Continuum has been renewed for a final six-episode season.
“All great stories deserve an end,” Nichols said in a press release. “I am excited and grateful to finish Continuum with the riveting conclusion it deserves. This series finale is dedicated to the devoted fans who have loyally supported us since Day 1.”
Production on Season 4 is set to begin in Vancouver in early 2015 with broadcast of the episodes later in the year. The renewal comes amid months of speculation regarding whether the sci-fi series would return or not. Now we have the answer.
Created by Simon Barry, Continuum stars Rachel Nichols as Kiera Cameron, a cop from 2077 Vancouver who is sent back to present-day stop a group the terrorist group Liber8 from affecting the future. Aiding Kiera in her mission is Vancouver cop Carlos Fonnegra (Victor Webster) and computer whiz Alec Sadler (Erik Knudsen). Opposing her were Liber8 members Matthew Kellog (Stephen Lobo), Sonya Valentine (Lexa Doig), Lucas Ingram (Omari Newton), Travis Verta (Roger Cross), Jasmine Garza (Luvia Petersen) and Julien Randol (Richard Harmon).
Season 3 of Continuum ended in a cliffhanger, with an special ops army troupe from 2077 arriving in Vancouver to lay waste after Kiera and Brad activated the beacon and the death of evil Alec at the hands of good Alec. The episode was the No. 1 program of the night in key demos for all of Canadian specialty programming.
Continuum has been lauded with numerous award wins, including a Canadian Screen Award for Best Visual Effects for a Program or Series and Leo Awards for Best Dramatic Series, Best Supporting Performance by a Female in a Dramatic Series, Best Stunt Coordination in a Dramatic Series and Best Screenwriting for a Dramatic Series.
It airs in over 132 countries.
