Good news time travel fans! The Travelers TV show has been renewed for season 2 on Netflix and Showcase (Canada). The time-travel sci-fi drama stars Eric McCormack, Jared Abrahamson, Nesta Cooper, Reilly Dolman, Patrick Gilmore and MacKenzie Porter. The second season production will begin in March in Vancouver.
Netflix says, “They’re from the future but they’re living in our time. These seemingly ordinary people are secretly working to save us all from a tragic fate.” its reported that Travelers season two will drop to Netflix in 2017, after it airs on Showcase in Canada, this coming Autumn.
This was one of my favourite shows on Netflix last year and I highly recommend it, as it's not the usual time travel show.
So here are my 5 reasons why you should check this show out.
1) It's very tightly scripted, very little fluff in the story and the characters are well rounded especially since you, as the viewer, find out about the character at the same time as they do. There are enough twists and turns to keep you guessing along the way.
2) It's not your standard time travel show. In fact it's set in 2016, and without giving any of the plot away, thats a good thing so there's no need for different expensive sets or costumes.
3) It's Canadian, which, if you are familiar with television shows, is a very good thing. They tend to do great Sci-fi on quite small budgets. This show is no exception.
4) It's created by Brad Wright (Stargate), who has experience with Sci-if shows - good enough reason for me to watch.
5) The cast is great, there are many faces you will recognise from other Canadian shows, most notably Continuum. Plus of course the five main characters Eric McCormack (Will & Grace) being the most recognisable. But each of these characters are great in their respective roles and they all bring something to the story.
So will we get more answers in season 2? Well, I would hope we do since the first season left us on a cliffhanger so I'm hoping at the very least that is resolved. Plus, we need to find out more regarding what really did or does happen in the future and how this "cell" can stop it.
