It took Blake Calhoun more than two years to turn Continuum from an original idea into a full-fledged web series. Luckily for fans of the series, the gap between seasons one and two is not nearly as broad. Calhoun has released nine new episodes of Continuum through pay-to-view platform JTS.TV, where they can be seen by purchasing a monthly pass for $3.99
The entire first season is available for free viewing on JTS.TV; more conveniently, it also has a home on YouTube, where the second season will end up during the summer. The original run features sterile, 2001-esque sci-fi visuals and solid acting from web series notables such as lonelygirl15′s Melanie Merkosky and industry vet Taryn O’Neill. If that sounds like your kind of show, expect season two–which begins at the cliffhanger that ended episode nine–to provide more of the same.
Calhoun is best known as the creator of Pink, for which he won the Streamy Award for Best Director at the inaugural ceremony. Continuum picked up its share of praise as well, including a Streamy nomination for Best Editing.
Continuum‘s second season will be available ad free on JTS.TV (which also offers critically acclaimed web series such as Clutch and Compulsive Love) for the next three months. After that, it will become available through online VOD services before finally finding its way to YouTube later in the year. Therefore, viewers will have to be patient if they want to watch the series for free. Of course, if you’ve been following Continuum since its inception, I’m guessing patience is one of your strong suits.
