Continuum has wrapped its fourth and final season on SyFy, and Simon Barry has been making the rounds to talk about the finale and a potential future for the series and its characters.
He teased the chances of the series continuing in a movie or another format in an interview released over the weekend.
Now he has also spoke about the ending of the series with Blastr. The finale saw Kiera returning to her time, but since she had fixed things in the past – there was no place for her in the timeline. She was already there.
Barry spoke about that decision in an interview with Blastr.
“We finally settled on the ending we used before any scripts were written. It seemed to fit what the show had been about all along. Sacrifice for an idea that is bigger than you are. We knew it would be bittersweet, but the writers and myself have always been striving to find the complicated way out of a problem, because that tends to reveal more about the truth of who we are and what Continuum had been attempting all along.”
As for the spin-off potential for the series, he teased that once again, and he revealed more about one idea he would like to explore more with a new project.
“Personally I would love to write about Kellog in his new “situation” — that would be a fun book or graphic novel to write. I would also like to explore the story of the Traveler and the larger time-travel mythology myself and the other writers came up with but were unable to execute this season. There are some great ideas that never made it to the screen. Perhaps those concepts can see the light of day down the road in other storytelling mediums.”
