For a second year in a row, Continuum has used Fan Expo Vancouver to launch its latest season. Last year was to debut the show and this year’s event is to offer fans a preview of season two that premieres tomorrow, April 21 at 6pm PT/9pm ET on Showcase. It premieres on Syfy on June 7.
Stars Rachel Nichols (Kiera
Camera), Victor Webster (Carlos Fonnegra), Stephen Lobo (Kellogg), Erik Knudsen (Alec Sadler), Lexa Doig (Sonya), Omari Newton (Lucas), Roger Cross (Travis) and Luvia Peterson (Garza) were on hand. As a start, creator Simon Barry got the cast to ask each other questions. Then the cast answered fan questions like do the cast consider themselves a geek or a nerd. Rachel said that she is neither but a dork. Also, we find out what sci-fi fantasy shows they liked growing up and what shows they like now. A lot answered that they liked Star Trek for shows they liked in the past. As for shows they liked now, most of the cast answered Continuum.
While the stars didn’t reveal too much about the upcoming season but they did show the friendship and camaraderie that they’ve developed.
The video below is the panel that includes a sneak peek trailer (it starts off the panel) and the first 5 minutes of the episode 1 of season 2 (this happens near the end of the panel). Apologies for the shaky camera work and yes I am running at one point in the video to ask my question (it got a great fan and panel reaction at the 26:00 mark -again sorry for the bad camera work).
