Reunion Pictures, in association with Shaw Media, recently announced that production has started on  Season 2 of the hit Showcase show "Continuum."

The drama-action series profiles a policewoman from 2077 who travels back in time and teams with a present-day cop to track down escaped convicts from her future.

"Continuum" debuted on Showcase to an audience of over 1 million viewers, shattering all previous premiere records on the network and making it the #1 specialty series of the summer. Additionally, the epic first season concluded with the most-watched finale in Showcase history.

In Season 1 of "Continuum," Kiera Cameron (played by Rachel Nichols of "Criminal Minds" and "Alias"), a cop from the year 2077 found herself trapped in present-day Vancouver, searching for convicted terrorists from the future, known as Liber8. With unexpected assistance from teen tech genius Alec Sadler (Erik Knudsen of "Jericho" and "Scream 4"), Kiera desperately tried to bring down the terrorists before they changed the course of history forever. In Season 2 Kiera continues her uneasy alliance with her partner, Vancouver Police detective Carlos Fonnegra (Victor Webster of "Castle") and grapples with the big question that closed the first season – why was I sent here? While Alec struggles to understand the implications of the mysterious message he received from his future self in last season’s finale, the Liber8 terrorists become more strategic, although just as lethal.

“Season 2 of 'Continuum' will see Kiera pitted against Liber8 while trying to find a way back to 2077,” said creator/executive producer Simon Barry, “This season will feature the best elements of Season 1 in addition to some new characters and storylines that expand the universe of 'Continuum.'”

"Continuum" Season 2 is slated to premiere in Canada on Shaw Media’s specialty channel Showcase in April 2013.
