Note: This series is a Canadian import and its success is more heavily determined by its performance in its home country.

Description: 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.

Why Did It End?  This series developed a devoted fanbase and a lot of good buzz, but never a large audience.  The Canadian Showcase Channel decided to end it but gave it a fourth season to wrap up its storylines.  Afterward, series creator Simon Barry had the following to say about possibly continuing the story: “I would love to explore what happens to these characters after Continuum in other mediums. It’s too early to say how that may happen, or what medium it might happen in, but the ability to build on the Continuum universe and mythology is not something that has to happen necessarily in TV or film form, but it might.”  You can read the full interview with Barry at this link.
