Production Starts on Finale Season of Shaw Media’s Original Hit Drama Series Continuum
Season Four Premieres July 26 on Showcase
Rachel Nichols, Victor Webster and Eric Knudsen Lead Ensemble Cast for the Critically Acclaimed Show
(Vancouver, Canada) – Reunion Pictures, in association with Shaw Media, today announced that production is underway on season four of Continuum, Showcase‘s Canadian original action-drama about a policewoman from 2077 who travels back in time to track down escaped Liber8 convicts from the future. The six one-hour episode conclusion wraps production in late May and premieres July 26, 2015 on Showcase.
In season four of Continuum, Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols, Criminal Minds, Alias) and the mysterious time traveler, Brad Tonkin (Ryan Robbins, Falling Skies, The Killing) must battle the Future Soldiers who arrived in a flash of light in the last moments of season three. Meanwhile, Kiera’s alliance with the remaining members of Liber8 challenges her relationship with both Carlos (Victor Webster, Castle, Melrose Place) and Alec Sadler (Erik Knudsen, Jericho, Scream 4).
Kiera must also face off against Kellog (Stephen Lobo, Arctic Air, Smallville), who is using every option available to him to become the ruler of a dark future built in his image. Ultimately Kiera is put to the test when the dream of potentially reuniting with her family is reignited.
“The final season of Continuum is built around the opportunity for Kiera to finally get home, and poses the question: what are we prepared to compromise to achieve our ultimate goal?” said creator/executive producer Simon Barry. “Kiera must put those she loves at risk to pursue a dream that she thought was impossible.”
“We are happy that fans all over the world will now receive the highly anticipated conclusion to this critically acclaimed series,” said Reunion Pictures’ Tom Rowe. “Under the creative direction of Simon Barry, Executive Producer/Director Patrick Williams, and our stellar cast, the final season promises to deliver some fascinating answers to the complexities of Continuum‘s present and future worlds.”
Returning cast include Roger Cross (Motive, Arrow), Omari Newton (Blue Mountain State, Sophie), Luvia Petersen (The L Word), Brian Markinson (Mad Men, Arctic Air)and Terry Chen (Bates Motel, Combat Hospital).
Continuum is created by Executive Producer Simon Barry (The Art of War) while DGC Award winner Patrick Williams (Shattered, Smallville) is Executive Producer and Director. Reunion Pictures partners Tom Rowe, Lisa Richardson and Matthew O’Connor are Executive Producers.
