Filming has begun in Vancouver for the fourth and final season of Continuum! It kind of snuck up on us since the writers room only had to come up with six episodes. In fact, the mind-blowing news is that, although Showcase announced a “Fall 2015″ release for the season premiere, we recently found out that the final episodes will air starting July 26th! Don’t Rachel Nichols and Erik Knudsen look rather melancholy on the first day of shooting, knowing it’s their last season? Happy-sad! Can’t wait to start talking about Continuum again!
The fourth and final season of Continuum has been announced, and obviously the feelings are bittersweet. What happened to delay this announcement? Why are there only six episodes? When will the final episodes air? Will they have enough time to wrap things up? Will it fit with Simon Barry’s original vision? And what’s going on with the podcast? Mike and Dave attempt to answer these questions and more in our Season 4 renewal discussion.
Well, it was neither what fans feared nor what they most hoped for. Shaw Media announced that Continuum will be back to wrap up its story for a final season, but it only has six episodes to do so. Sci fi fans are always thankful when a storyline is able to be wrapped up, but half a dozen hours just doesn’t seem like enough time given the scale of what’s come before.
However, we couldn’t be more happy to be returning for a bittersweet few more episodes of the Continuum podcast along with the show! The writers will be back to work this winter, and filming takes place in the spring of 2015. We do not have word on when the episodes will air, but our best guess is late summer. You can read more about the renewal on Showcase’s Blog.
Dave and I will be making our podcast plans soon, so stay tuned for more announcements.
When we asked Continuum fans to call in with their reasons why Showcase and Shaw should renew Continuum, we had no idea what to expect. Wow, did you guys deliver! A week’s worth of voicemails gave us voices from all over the world, and all unanimously believe the time has come for the waiting to end. We want a season four!
Thank you to those who called in and contributed to this podcast. We heard from the following towns and a few more which were not identifiable. Thank you so much! Let’s hope our voices reach the right ears!
Falls Church, VA
Las Vegas, NV
New Westminster, BC
It’s time to let your voice be heard! We can’t take the not knowing! Tell us why Showcase should renew Continuum by calling our voice hotline: 773-LIBER88 (that’s 773-542-3788) and leave a one-sentence statement that completes the phrase, “Renew Continuum because…” When we get enough responses, we’ll edit them all together into an inspirational podcast. Because, come hell or high water, we will not give up as long as there’s a shred of hope. RISE UP, and join us!
Sorry for our extended absence! We’re busy over at Golden Spiral Media with our Extant and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. podcasts. But Continuum will always be our first love, and we were not alone at Dragon Con 2014. The Continuum fan panel room was filled – even more than last year when there were actual guests from the cast – with avid fans of the show and even a few listeners of our podcast! Enjoy this discussion between our four panelists: Ryan Guthrie, Tricia Ennis (AllGeekToMe.net), Kevin Bachelder (TuningIntoSciFiTV.com), and me (Mike)!
