With it's production company owning the cable network that's airing it, there's hope that if Continuum continues to perform well in Canada-and in other countries, it won't get canned just because it failed to gain traction in America.
One can examine Showcase's track record for their original first-run produced shows.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Showcas...al_programming

For the most part, very few of Showcase's original shows have lasted more than 3 seasons. The few exceptions are:

- Trailer Park Boys (comedy/mockumentary - 7 seasons)
- Kenny vs. Spenny (comedy - 6 seasons)
- KinK (sex documentary - 5 seasons)

Of their present shows which remotely resemble sci-fi/action/fantasy, there's "Lost Girl" (season 3) and "XIII: The Series" (season 2).

Quite a few of the canceled one-season shows, were first-runs within the last 5 years or so. Many of the canceled three-season shows, were first-runs from the early and mid-2000's era.

It would be great if Continuum lasts three seasons (if not more), regardless of Showcase's past track record.
