Is Travelers canceled?

Seasons: 3

Created By: Brad Wright

Starring: Eric McCormack, MacKenzie Porter, Nesta Cooper, Jared Abrahamson, Reilly Dolman, Patrick Gilmore

Considering how many shows Netflix releases each year, much less each month, it’s quite common to completely forget that a show exists. Unless it’s currently trending in the top 10 titles on the platform, it’s totally out of sight and out of mind. You might have forgotten the Canadian sci-fi series Travelers, which had a brief (perhaps too brief) moment on Netflix

Will & Grace star Eric McCormack stars in Travelers as Grant MacLaren, the leader of a group of “travelers” who are sent back in time to a body that’s moments from its death. Their goal is to save society from its imminent collapse and protect the impact past actions have on the future timeline. By all accounts, it’s a thrilling adventure and thought-provoking watch.

Travelers first premiered in 2018 as a Canadian co-production with Netflix. In 2018, the third and ultimately final season debuted and ended the series all at once. Even though Travelers didn’t become a worldwide phenomenon or even the binge-watch du jour of the month, the series attained positive reviews from critics and its small but mighty fanbase. Much like other shows, we’ll always wonder what could have been if it hadn’t been canceled.
