It’s official: Syfy is bringing Continuum back for a second season, and now we know when the time-traveling sci-fi drama will be back in action.
After spending the last few months on the Monday drama block with Being Human and Lost Girl, the Canadian import will slide over to Friday beginning June 7 at 10 p.m. with its second-season premiere.
The second season will consist of 13 episodes, up from 10 in the first season, and will continue the adventures of future cop Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) as she tracks a terrorist organization in modern-day Vancouver. It’s a smart show, and is just starting to scratch the surface of its intriguing time-travel premise.
During its first season, the series delivered 1.35 million total viewers (644,000 adults 25-54 and 537,000 adults 18-49), ranking No. 6 in adults 25-54 and No. 10 in adults 18-49 among all cable entertainment programs with at least three telecasts in its time period.
Since it’s shot in Vancouver, the series is a who’s who of small screen sci-fi stars. The show features and has featured Victor Webster (Castle), Erik Knudsen (Jericho), Tony Amendola (Stargate SG-1), Lexa Doig (Andromeda), William B. Davis (The X-Files) and Tahmoh Penikett (Battlestar Galactica), among others.
