Continuum Season 2 Gets a U.S. Premiere Date, Moves to Fridays on SyFy

SyFy will continue feeding its budget-friendly habit of importing scripted Canadian TV with another round of Continuum, which aired its Season 1 finale in the U.S. last week. The network announced the Season 2 pickup today, along with a a premiere date: Friday, June 7 at 10pm. 

The series, about a hottie cop from the future who time-warps to the present day to hunt down a group of anti-corporate terrorists, is produced by Canadian broadcaster Showcase, and was renewed by that network last August. Season 2 will run for 13 episodes and premiere in Canada on April 21, about two months ahead of its U.S. debut. 

Note that the series will be switching timeslots in its return, as its Season 1 spot of Mondays at 10pm is now earmarked for Warehouse 13 (which returns for the second half of Season 4 on April 29). Continuum will pick up Fridays where Merlin leaves off; the wizard will wrap his five-season run on May 31.

From what I've gathered around these parts, ya'll seem to like Continuum quite a bit. But how many of you are familiar with the series because of SyFy, as opposed to learning of it through the internet/your Canadian friends? Will you be watching Season 2? And if so, will you be waiting to see it Stateside or "acquiring" it through other means?

    I was excited to hear that Syfy picked up the Pilot and first season to continuum even after limited marketing to promote the series. As of yet have not heard if they will buy season 3. Don't know where the majority of you are from but here in the US when a show gets moved to a Friday spot it is usually the kiss of death before cancellation. Such was the case with Fringe, Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles, Firefly, and Dark Angel to name a few. After watching the first and what has been broadcasted of the second season I am quite pleased. In my opinion the show is picking up steam and does have a lot to offer. I hope other viewers see it that way and stick around to get at least two more seasons...five and even more.

    Syfy? Nooo... I was rather surprised today, when I saw that tv.com lists Continuum as a Syfy show. I hope the editors fix this soon.

    watching it now on Netflix. I've heard of the show online before SyFy ever picked it up, and when I finished Season 1 I don't know whether or not I'll download the Season 2 episodes or wait til next month when it premieres on SyFy.

    I heard about it through word of mouth as well; SyFy had nothing to do with it.

    By the by, it's an excellent show -- well written, morally ambiguous -- and I look forward to seeing what they can do with season 2.

    very happy to hear it..continuum has proven to be a great show,entertaining,suspenceful and well acted and executed...i have to say..while broadcast continues to mostly disappoint,cable has one great series after another...wonder why??? there is good wife,ncis and the ncis la,but i don't see them as much any more,elementary and supernatural..otherwise i look mainly at cable offerings and ther are a whole lot..hard to keep track of sometimes...there needs to be a sched with everything cable,with times etc...

    I learned about Continuum here and elsewhere but I did not see it on Syfy. Watched it on "the internet" lol

    I didn't realize that SyFy had picked this up! I'm quite happy that they're looking outside of the US for good programming. Showcase is an awesome network. Similar to USA/TNT networks here.

    Found out about it online, LOVED IT (and, of course, Rachel Nichols, who is hotness personified!), and will be staying home on Fridays now for Season 2 ..... instead of wandering the streets!
