Rachel Nichols has expressed hopes that her sci-fi series Continuum will continue past its fourth season.
Continuum – which stars Nichols as time-traveller Kiera – will premiere its third season tomorrow night on Syfy.
“In season three, we build the story and the idea of time travel,” the actress told Digital Spy. “[There’s] different timelines and people coming from different timelines – everything’s going to get more complicated, but in the best sense of the word.”
A fourth and final season of Continuum – spanning six episodes – will start shooting in March for a late 2015 broadcast in Canada, but Nichols told DS that she remains “optimistic” about the show’s future.
“I’d like to see the fourth season be such an incredible success that maybe we can get a little bit more out of it,” she admitted. “Maybe there are some legs to it somewhere else and I think that the fans would be in support of that.
“I know that we’re gonna do everything possible to make season four even more electric and thought-provoking than prior seasons, so of course I’d like to be optimistic and think that perhaps this isn’t the end.”

Nichols added that she was “disappointed” with the decision to wrap up Continuum but “very grateful” that the series was granted its final six episodes.
“I don’t want the story to end and I know there’s so much more to be told,” she explained. “I know the show creator Simon Barry has so much more in his head that he could do with the show for years to come, but those aren’t the decisions that I get to make.
“But at least we’re being given a chance to give the show the proper end it deserves, and give the fans answers to at least some of their questions… I can’t promise that all of their questions will be answered!”
