Everything about Travelers, eh?

Showcase announces second season for fall’s No. 1 new series Travelers

From a media release:

Showcase announced today that Travelers, the #1 new Fall series*, will return for a second season with production beginning this March in Vancouver. Produced by Peacock Alley Entertainment Inc., in association with Showcase and Netflix, Season 2 of the time-travelling sci-fi drama will air exclusively on Showcase in Canada in Fall 2017. Series Writer and Creator Brad Wright returns, along with series leads Eric McCormack, Jared Abrahamson, Nesta Cooper, Reilly Dolman, Patrick Gilmore, and MacKenzie Porter.

Season 1 of Travelers followed a group of people from the future who have discovered how to send consciousness back through time, directly into people in the 21st century. These “travelers” assumed the lives of seemingly random people, while secretly working as teams to perform high-stakes missions in order to save the world from a terrible future. Starring Eric McCormack as FBI Special Agent Grant MacLaren, MacKenzie Porter as Marcy, Patrick Gilmore as David,  Jared Paul Abrahamson as Trevor, Nesta Cooper as Carly, and Reilly Dolman as Philip, Season 2 of Travelers picks up on the group’s haunting realization that their missions may have altered the future in ways they did not predict.

Travelers is produced by Peacock Alley Entertainment Inc., in association with Showcase and Netflix, and is distributed by Sky Vision.

“There’s a moodiness to the show. The narrative is gradual. The old network model was that every episode had to stand alone in case a person hasn’t seen the show. We are no longer babysitting people. It’s like, ‘Here’s the show: go!'” Continue reading.

Travelers: Eric McCormack, Brad Wright look to present
“It struck me that for the last 10 or 15 years, we’ve been putting a version of ourselves out there, all of us, in social media that may or may not represent who we really are. It’s who we project. That kind of evolved and evolved and evolved, and became one of the assembly blocks for Travelers, starting with the Marcy character.” Continue reading.

From Bryan Cairns of The Gate:

Link: Patrick Gilmore talks ordinary humans dealing with the extraordinary in ‘Travelers’
“Time travel is something I have a weakness for, whether it’s Star Trek IV or Kate and Leopold with Meg Ryan and Hugh Jackman. That excites me. Not only that, but this is also done in a gritty, realistic way that lends itself to a little more believability. It raises the stakes when you can see yourself in that world. It’s definitely a TV show that’s rooted in that. You can see yourself existing in this world. It’s not superheroes and masks. It’s a really great character piece.” Continue reading.
