The Canadian import Continuum is one of the most underrated science fiction TV shows out there right now. Just as the second season is about to make its U.S. premiere on Syfy, its Canadian home network, Showcase, has renewed Continuum for a third season.
Continuum‘s third season will continue the adventures of City Protective Services (CPS) law enforcement officer Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols). Speaking to Digital Spy, Nichols (Star Trek) explained the moral dilemma her character is experiencing, knowing what the future holds for the country and what her character knows now about the criminal organization she’s trying to bring down.
‘Kiera goes through a very interesting moral crisis… because in 2077 she knows who she is and she knows what she’s fighting, she knows what’s bad and good,’ Nichols told Digital Spy.
‘She comes back to 2012 and her world is completely turned upside down and everything she believes she stood for is in question.’
At the beginning of the sci-fi series, Continuum is set in the year 2077. The United States and Canada have merged into the North American Union under the Global Corporate Congress. A series of terrorist acts against the corporate establishment gets the organization “Liber8” sentenced to death. During Liber8’s execution, they time travel back to the year 2012 to try to stop the North American Union from happening. During their escape, Cameron is accidentally pulled back in time with them. Now Cameron is the only hope to preserve the future of the Global Corporate Congress…but the question is whether she should.
Continuum is for anyone who likes time travel and ethically ambiguous characters. Continuum’s 10-episode first season is now streaming on Netflix Instant, while season two premieres on Syfy this Friday night.
