The future does not appear to be bright for a drama series set in the future. Netflix has canceled “Travelers,” starring Eric McCormack, after three seasons.
McCormack announced the cancellation in a video clip posted to his Twitter account.
“A lot of you have been asking about the possibility of a season four, but many of you have been saying, ‘Look, if this is it, what a moving and surprising and profound ending it is,’” McCormack said. “Well, I’m afraid it is [the end]. Who knows what the future holds, but Travelers Program 1, as we call it, is complete.”
Variety notes: “The series is set hundreds of years in the future where technology has developed a means of sending people back in time to the 21st century to help save humanity from a grim future. McCormack plays an FBI agent and team leader of the ‘travelers.’ Mackenzie Porter, Patrick Gilmore, Jared Paul Abrahamson, Nesta Marlee Cooper and Reilly Dolman also star.”
The series is written, created and executive produced by Brad Wright, with John G. Lenic and Carrie Mudd also executive producing. McCormack is also a producer.
The show is produced by Peacock Alley Entertainment Inc., in association with Netflix.
