[via press release from Syfy]




NEW YORK - January 2, 2013 - Syfy's Powerful Mondays programming block returns on Monday, January 14, kicking off with the premiere of the new original series Continuum at 8PM (ET/PT), followed by the season three returns of hit programs Being Human at 9PM and Lost Girl at 10PM.

CONTINUUM - 8PM - The time-traveling police drama Continuum stars Rachel Nichols (Star Trek, Criminal Minds) as Kiera Cameron, a cop from the future who finds herself trapped in the present day. When a group of fanatical terrorists escapes their planned execution in 2077 by vaulting back in time to 2012, they inadvertently sweep along Kiera, a dedicated City Protective Services officer. With unexpected assistance from teen tech genius Alec Sadler, played by Erik Knudsen (Jericho, Scream 4), Kiera infiltrates the local police department and forms an uneasy alliance with her new partner, detective Carlos Fonnegra, portrayed by Victor Webster (Castle, Melrose Place). Though desperate to get back to her husband and son, Kiera concentrates on bringing down the terrorists before they change the course of history. Executive producers of Continuum are Simon Barry (The Art of War), Jeff King (Stargate SG-1, White Collar), Tom Rowe (Tin Man), Pat Williams (Smallville) and Reunion Pictures. The series premiere, "A Stitch in Time," is written by Simon Barry and directed by Jon Cassar (24, Terra Nova).

BEING HUMAN - 9PM - Being Human stars Sam Witwer (Aidan), Meaghan Rath (Sally) and Sam Huntington (Josh) as three paranormal roommates (a vampire, ghost and werewolf) all trying to hold onto the remnants of their human lives while sharing each other's secrets and a Boston brownstone. Kristen Hager, who has played Josh's girlfriend Nora (also a werewolf) for the past two seasons, becomes a series regular this season.

The new season of Being Human picks up 15 months after the events of last season's riveting finale which ended with Aidan buried alive as punishment from vampire leader Mother, Sally lost in a state of limbo, and Josh's plot to kill Ray, his werewolf "maker," endangering Nora instead. Season 3 features new and returning guest stars including Mark Pellegrino, Amy Aquino, Xander Berkeley, Bobby Campo and Kyle Schmid.

Being Human is a Muse Entertainment production in association with ZODIAK USA. It is based on the acclaimed series created by Toby Whithouse and produced by Touchpaper. Executive producers are Michael Prupas (The Kennedys, Pillars of the Earth), Anna Fricke (Men in Trees, Everwood) who is also showrunner and writer, Jeremy Carver (Supernatural), and Rob Pursey & Toby Whithouse. Irene Litinsky (Human Trafficking, The Phantom) is series producer.

LOST GIRL - 10PM - The victory in the final battle of Season 2 has created new alliances for Bo (series star Anna Silk) along with reinvigorating old enemies, like "The Morrigan," played by Emmanuelle Vaugier (Two and a Half Men, Human Target), whom Bo crossed in an attempt to bring peace to the Faedom. Now Bo, who until now has refused to pick a side, will be forced to make a deadly decision. Among the guest stars will be Linda Hamilton ("Terminator") and joining the Lost Girl cast this season is Rachel Skarsten (The Vow, Flashpoint) in a recurring role as "Tamsin," a thrill-seeking, sexy new Fae who ruffles many feathers. Returning for season three are Kris Holden-Ried (The Tudors, Underworld 4) as "Dyson"; Ksenia Solo (Life Unexpected, Black Swan) as "Kenzi"; Zoie Palmer (The Guard, Instant Star) as "Lauren"; Rick Howland (Billable Hours, Murdoch Mysteries) as "Trick" and K.C. Collins (Owning Mahowny, Doomstown) as "Hale." Lost Girl is a Prodigy Pictures Production in association with Shaw Media. Executive producers are Emily Andras, Plato Fountidakis, Paul Rapovski and Jay Firestone with Vanessa Piazza serving as a Co-Producer.
