Status: Returning, 3rd Season Streams Late 2018 / Early 2019
Starring: Eric McCormack, MacKenzie Porter, Nesta Cooper, Jared Abrahamson
Series Website: www.showcase.ca/travelers
Description:Hundreds of years from now, the last surviving humans discover the means of sending consciousness back through time, directly into people in the 21st century. These “travelers” assume the lives of seemingly random people, while secretly working as teams to perform missions in order to save humanity from a terrible future.
These travelers are: FBI Special Agent Grant MacLaren (Eric McCormack), the team’s leader; Marcy (Mackenzie Porter), a young, intellectually disabled woman in the care of her social worker, David (Patrick Gilmore); Trevor (Jared Paul Abrahamson), a high school quarterback; Carly (Nesta Marlee Cooper), a single mom in an abusive relationship; and Philip (Reilly Dolman), a heroin-addicted college student.
Armed only with their knowledge of history and an archive of social media profiles, the travelers discover that 21st century lives and relationships are as much a challenge as their high-stakes missions. Showcase.ca

Season End Status: Netflix has officially renewed this show for a third season. It had been a joint production between the Showcase channel in Canada and Netflix, and its first two seasons debuted up north before running on the streaming service. But now the show will become exclusive to Netflix where it will stream worldwide. The show has developed a very devoted following, and has had decent viewership on Showcase, though it apparently dropped off some in its second season. Netflix does not share its viewing numbers, so I am not certain how it has performed there. But apparently it has drawn enough viewership for the streaming service to elect to bring it back for a third year.
