When a group of fanatical terrorists escape their planned execution in 2077 by traveling back in time to 2012, they inadvertently take City Protective Services officer Kiera Cameron with them. Trapped in a more “primitive” past, Kiera infiltrates the local police department to try to track down the terrorists before they change the course of history.
Continuum stars Rachel Nichols (Alias, Criminal Minds, G.I. Joe) as Kiera, Victor Webster (Castle, Melrose Place) as detective Carlos Fonnegra – who Kiera allies with – and Erik Knudsen (Jericho, Scream 4) as Alec Sadler, the teenaged tech genius who could be Kiera’s key to saving the future.
Continuum comes from executive producers Simon Barry (The Art of War), Jeff King (Stargate SG-1, White Collar), Tom Rowe (Tin Man), and Pat Williams (Smallville). ~ syfy.com
In 2077, governments have collapsed and corporations have taken over, forming a high-surveillance and technologically advanced police state that takes away some social freedoms such as criticism against the “Corporate Congress.” Though the citizens remain relatively free, there is a great disparity between the working class and the poor people who can’t afford food. A group that calls itself Liber8 forms as freedom fighters against the corporations and admittedly kill thousands as collateral damage for the greater good. Kiera ends up with Liber8 back in 2012 and remains focused on maintaining the timeline so she can return home to her family.
Continuum involves some of the best of sci-fi: time-travel and a dystopian future. Plus it has an awesome cast including Lexa Doig (Andromeda, Jason X) and Tony Amendola (Stargate SG-1) as two of the members of Liber8. Some of you may already watch Continuum since the first season has aired on Canada’s Showcase and premiered in September on SyFy in the UK but for those of you who haven’t seen the first season yet, Continuum is set to begin airing on Syfy on January 14 at 8/7c and promises to be a show worth watching!
