Continuum wrapped its fourth and final season on SyFy on Friday night. The series, which starred Rachel Nichols, was cancelled by the network back in December. However, it was given a short six-episode fourth season to wrap its storyline.
Even though the series has come to a close, Simon Barry is not ready to leave the series completely behind. In an interview with TV Goodness, Barry revealed that the abbreviated season forced him to cut part of the story he wanted to share out. He knew the end game he wanted, but he was forced to take a more direct route to get there because of the six-episode limit.
However, he is willing to share that backstory via other formats – whether it be another series, a novel, a graphic novel, or some other medium.
“We did have a plan to show the Traveler’s story and branch out and tell his story in much more detail and [explore] how his journey connected to the larger Continuum mythology. Unfortunately, the time to play that out just wasn’t available to us in the last season, so we had to shortcut it and see what we could use as opposed to building a backstory [that would take up] real estate we needed for our main characters. Hopefully, there will be an opportunity to tell some of the story of the Continuum universe in other formats, whether that’s a novel or graphic novel or other forms of storytelling that haven’t been invented yet. I think at a certain point other components will get their due, but we couldn’t squeeze it into our last six episodes. I would have loved to, but there wasn’t time.”
Barry is definitely willing to continue the story of Continuum if there is an interest. No one has approached him yet though.
This is not the only mention Barry has made about a future Continuum project. He also teased the possibility of a film in a video shared on Facebook.
