The second season hasn’t even debuted in the U.S. yet, but Canadian network Showcase has already picked up Continuum for a third year.

The time-traveling shenanigans of future-cop Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) will continue for another season, which is great news for U.S. fans prepping for Syfy’s season-two premiere on June 7. The second season is airing now in Canada, and the first season of the import aired a few months ago on Syfy in the U.S.

Based around the story of a cop who travels back in time to stop a group of terrorists, the series has managed to build a pretty great mythology around the concept. It has grown into a bona-fide hit in Canada, and is gaining steam in the States as well.

Star Rachel Nichols teased Digital Spy with this tidbit about upcoming episodes:

"Kiera goes through a very interesting moral crisis... because in 2077 she knows who she is and she knows what she's fighting, she knows what's bad and good. She comes back to 2012 and her world is completely turned upside down and everything she believes she stood for is in question." 

No announcements have been made as to when/if the third season might debut in the U.S. at this point. But considering that the U.S. air dates have almost caught up with the Canadian schedule, it could be a slightly longer wait between seasons from now on.

Did you check out the first season? What are you expecting from year two (and now three)?
