Continuum renewed for fourth, final season

JUST when you were starting to get your head wrapped around the idea that Lost Girl is coming to an end on Showcase (read our review of the final premiere here), comes news that another Showcase series, Continuum, is also ending. So what’s the good news? Well, at least we’ll have one more season to properly send it off.

Series star Rachel Nichols confirmed the news on ET Canada Monday night, sending a flurry of fans into a bit of a tizzy.

“All great stories deserve an end. I am excited and grateful to finish Continuum with the riveting conclusion it deserves,” Nichols said. “This series finale is dedicated to the devoted fans who have loyally supported us since Day 1.”

Since the third season of the Vancouver-shot, sci-fi series ended in June, speculation has been rampant over whether the show would continue. With solid ratings, a strong online following and awards under its belt, Continuum is a bonafide Canadian hit; it was surprising to many fans when a fourth season wasn’t immediately announced. Not to mention the nervous Nellies out there who didn’t want to deal with the fact that THAT Season 3, cliffhanger finale might have been the last episode.

All we can say is thank goodness it’s not.

In addition to the strong homegrown success, Continuum is currently available in over 132 countries including the U.S., where it’s carried by Syfy.

No word yet on how the futuristic story will shape up or when exactly Continuum will return. In a press release issued by the specialty station shortly after the ET Canada interview, Showcase confirmed the final six-episode run will air in 2015 and that additional casting announcements will follow in the coming weeks.

Are you sad that Continuum is ending? Happy for one new season? Sound off below.
