'Continuum' Season 4 Release Date, News: Sci-Fi Cop Drama Renewed for A Shortened Season
It has been a few months since fans of the hit science fiction cop drama series "Continuum" last heard about whether the show would be getting another run on the small screens or not.
To the delight of the many, recent news now indicates that "Continuum" had been renewed for another season's showing and it is scheduled to kick off in 2015.
Earlier this week, actress Rachel Nichols, who plays Kiera Cameron in the series, took to her social media to confirm the news.
"The rumor is true: #CONTINUUM gets a final, fourth season. Six episodes to be shot this spring and air in 2015," her Twitter post read.
And like it's done in the past, Syfy network will be importing the drama for American viewers.
TV.com, however noted that the upcoming season installment of "Continuum" won't only be comprised of a few segments but this will also mark the end of the series.
"Unfortunately, with the good news also comes some bad news: Continuum's upcoming fourth season will not only be shortened to six episodes, it will also be the show's last," the media publication stated.
Feeling the disappointment, Nichols spoke once again to the fans with the statement:
"All great stories deserve an end. I am excited and grateful to finish Continuum with the riveting conclusion it deserves ... this series finale is dedicated to the devoted fans who have loyally supported us since day one," she said.
"Yes, the words LAST SEASON and ONLY SIX EPISODES are a disappointment to many," she later went on to her Twitter again. "But look at the bright side: CONTINUUM gets a proper ending!"
Senior Vice President of Content at Shaw Media Christine Shipton meanwhile shed more light on the issue.
"Continuum's award-winning success on Showcase is a testament to the quality of our Canadian original productions ... with executive producer Simon Barry at its helm, the fourth and final season of Continuum is bound to deliver a heroic conclusion to the futuristic series," Shipton said.
