Season 2 of Syfy‘s time-traveling police drama Continuum premiered to 1.42 million total viewers in early June, slightly better than the first-season debut numbers for the Canadian import, which had already been renewed for a third season north of the border. That made today’s news of a renewal by Syfy all but certain. The network said today it has ordered 13 episodes to air in 2014. The series, starring Rachel Nichols and Victor Webster, is a Showcase original series produced by Reunion Pictures in association with Canada’s Shaw Media.
Speaking with Crave Online at San Diego Comic-Con, G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu discusses the planned follow-up. He says that it’s certainly possible for Scarlett (played by Rachel Nichols in 2009′s The Rise Of Cobra) to return in the threequel, despite not being seen in the second film. “There’s definitely a possibility that we’ll get Scarlett back. I think there’s a lot of characters that we can get back. The G.I. Joe world is a large world and we’re with one section of it. In mind it was never “Oh we’re getting rid of everyone and that’s that!” This is another part of the universe and I’m sure we’ll get her back. She has some of the most interesting storylines, especially with Snake Eyes.”
Chu also confirms that the movie will likely be shot in 3D, rather than doing a post-conversion (the last-minute decision to do so for Retaliation pushed its release back several months), and he teases how the third film will further explore the G.I. Joe mythology now that a more solid foundation has been laid down. “The reason I love G.I. Joe is because it goes everywhere and it stretches and it pulls. There’s never been a mythology like that hefore where it mixes military, ninjas, androids, and crazy political things between the Cobra. I just love that. All the doors are open for us. We started with the foundation of G.I. Joe Retaliation to clear the slate, to get to where this world lives and we have ninjas flying next to military guys. Now we can take the next step, now we can go on an adventure somewhere else and we can just keep building until you are literally like “What the hell is going on here?”

Nichols, who spent one season on “Alias” and one season on the short-lived “The Inside,” said year two of “Continuum” has afforded her the opportunity to expand her character.
“The writing is fantastic on this show,” she said. “Season two has a lot of – there are a lot of sort of deeper emotional points. And there are – there’s more of a definition between her relationship with Carlos (Kiera’s Vancouver PD partner), and that gets obviously deeper. And her relationship with (Alec) and (former Liber8 member Kellog) goes through sort of a lot of ebbs and flows. I mean … Kiera and Alec this year, you know, go – they have their highs and they have their lows, and that’s something that was very – was not really present in season one.”
When Kiera first arrived, in 2012, she met Alec, who, audiences soon discovered, would grow into a Bill Gates-type figure. The two quickly bonded as they tried to figure out who or what sent Kiera and a handful of Liber8 members back in time.
At the end of season one it was revealed that future Alec was responsible for the time jump.
“You know, he was her No. 1 guy, so to speak, and she was his No. 1 girl, and that relationship suffers this season,” Nichols said.
Overall, Nichols said season two is about further expanding the “Continuum” storyline.
“And just the, you know, finding out sort of more about who (Kiera) is and where she comes from and the state of the world at the time that she left, and what she’s discovered about the present day is constantly changing her impression of, you know, the battle versus good and evil, right versus wrong,” she said. “It’s just that season two is – there was a lot of setting up to do in season one, so season two definitely has the moments of more sort of – more discovery for her character and how she feels with – how she dealt with her life in the future, and how she’s doing with the life in the present day.”
Continuum has been renewed for a third season.
Further episodes of the Rachel Nichols sci-fi drama have been green-lit by Canadian network Showcase.A second season of Defiance has also been confirmed, alongside a series commission of Battlestar Galactica exec Ron Moore’s new drama Helix.
Continuum stars Nichols (Criminal Minds, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) as Kiera Cameron, a law enforcement officer who pursues a gang of rebels from the future of 2077 to the present-day.
“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.”
Continuum – which airs on Syfy in the UK – will premiere its second season on Showcase on Friday (June 7).

Details on the project come from Bloody Disgusting, which has a summary dubbing Becoming a “dramatic supernatural thriller.” Bartha stars alongside Rachel Nichols as Alex and Lisa, respectively, a couple on a road-trip retracing family roots. While out in the middle of nowhere, they come into contact with an ancient evil entity that takes over Alex by replacing his identity one piece at a time. Alex may still look like the love of Lisa’s life, but deep down he’s harboring “dark and disturbing plans” for her and is ready to manipulate her using their mutual trust and love.
Clearly Bartha and Nichols are the highlights of this production. The plot is fine, but there’s no spark that makes it truly gripping. As it stands, describing it as a combination of the “naturalism of Blue Valentine” meets “the tension of The Shining” seems like it could be a stretch. Then there’s the issue of this rather silly teaser poster that looks more like straight-to-DVD artwork than a theater-worthy rendering. The team behind this one is going to want Bartha and Nichols front and center as much as possible, but I’d like to bet there’s a more aesthetically pleasing way to sell them along with the film’s road-trip-with-an-evil-entity plot.
Becoming is still without an IMDb page, making it tough to track, but apparently the Canadian production is in post so we could see some footage from the film soon. With G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Conan the Barbarian and Alex Cross, Nichols has been plagued with some subpar material lately and Bartha’s been living in the Hangover bubble – so it should be interesting to see what the duo can do with such different and possibly very character-driven material. Fingers crossed for a big step up from P2 (another Rachel Nichols misfire).
