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.

    I think that is a lie, no, that is not true, I know this is a lie. The Continuum series was canceled for reasons we can only speculate on. The show was the most popular show internationally and the Canadian marked, if it was slow, would not have changed the financial success of the show. Have a look at the stats at IMDB on it popularity, those stats don’t lie, scifi com or however is behind this misinformation most certainly do.

    So why did they cancel the show? Simple, it opposed globalism. That’s all there is to it.

      No lies here. Just passing along the information based on the research we did on the show. If there was a dark and nefarious reason for cancelling Continuum, we welcome you to present the evidence.

    Well, I do not watch a lot of TV, but this show got my attention from the first episode. I have a couple of minor complains regarding performance, however the story is awesome. I agree with David Schiffer. There is something very shady here. Some giggling show like “2 broke girls”, that is not even funny, is surviving 6 seasons. And they canceled Continuum because of lack of audience? Oh, common! Maybe something did not work with actors, but if not, I support the assumption that Continuum has presented too powerful idea.

    I saw the series in over 2 till 3 weeks. The end was rather disappointing. So Many questions , so little Answers. I saw the series on Netflix and tel everyone this is a serie you have to see. It’s how the future could be and what responsibility’s we have. I can not imagine this show had to little watchers. Please make a film as a final of a follow up. The end was not satisfying. A very direct and nothing sayong end. Sorry About that because the serie was very good.

    Just finished binge watching as a late runner up as it’s 2018. I queried why there weren’t any more episodes and found this link. I agree with other posters that I too find it strange about the cancellation of this Scifi series. There are certainly questions that need answers. The said research on stat number of viewers vs popularity of the show,does not make sense. Excuse the pun but there seems to be a glitch in the fabric of time on this one… Perhaps the idea of futuristic revolutionary terrorism is about to collide sooner than we thought.
