Travelers ending after three seasons

The Travelers‘ mission is complete. Star Eric McCormack made it official on Friday afternoon, confirming the sci-fi drama will not return for a fourth adventure.

“Travelers Program One, as well call it, is complete,” McCormack said on the show’s Facebook page. “On behalf of our creator Brad Wright, my fellow producers and directors, designers, our writers, our amazing crew in Vancouver, and our cast—who I love more than they know—I want to say thank you. All three seasons of Travelers will continue to be available for you to re-discover and, hopefully, bring some others along with you.

“But, for now, Protocol 5,” he continued. “Much love from 3468 in the 21st.”

“Well, all good things…,” Wright tweeted on Friday afternoon. “Thanks to the greatest cast, crew, directors, writers, artists and producing partners a guy could ask for. Love to you all. And to
@Netflix for stepping up so we could make Season 3!”

Created by Brad Wright and executive-produced by McCormack, Wright and Carrie Mudd, Travelers starred McCormack, MacKenzie Porter, Nesta Cooper, Jared Abrahamson and Reilly Dolman as a group of agents sent from the future to change the path of humanity by putting their consciousness into the bodies of others. Patrick Gilmore, Leah Cairns, Jennifer Spence and Ian Tracey were all part of the cast.

Travelers most recently won a Banff Rockie Award for Best Science Fiction, Fantasy or Action Program at the Banff Television Festival. It also captured Leo Awards for Best Direction for William Waring and Best Guest Performance by a Female in a Dramatic Series for Spence.

“I think our show is definitely sci-fi, but it has a lot of really heavy relationship issues and interaction as well. Add in the mystery aspect as well and I think that brings in people who would never probably watch a show like ours. I feel like I’ve not only had to play one cool character, but a host of them because of how the arc has developed.” Continue reading.

From Victoria Ahearn of the Canadian Press:

Link: Eric McCormack sees ‘many parallels’ between ‘Travelers’ and today’s world
“We’ve seen post-apocalyptic visions for decades — they usually involved man destroying himself, usually with the atom bomb or something. But now what we’re seeing is two-fold: It is climate change, it’s very much what we’ve done to ourselves without admitting it, and even now our government isn’t admitting it down here, which is just incredible.” Continue reading.

“Well, what ended season two was the realization that the secret was out. The Traveler program, that there were people from the future among us, was about to hit the world. So it was a cool cliffhanger, but with all streaming shows you got to wait for a year. Season three is very much about how we as an organization quell all the rumours.” Continue reading.

From Merrill Barr of Forbes:

Link: 10 years ago, ‘Flashpoint’ opened the door For ‘Wynonna Earp,’ ‘Orphan Black’ and ‘Travelers’
In the summer of 2008, amidst the fallout of a damaging writers strike in the first half of the year, America broadcast networks were desperate for content. For CBS, one solution ended up coming from a strange place: Canada. What resulted from an unassuming find meant to just fill time was a series that would break the door down for shows such as Orphan Black and Wynonna Earp to thrive a decade later. That find? Flashpoint. Continue reading.
