While it comes as no surprise, it is a great relief to know Travelers is getting a third season. It’s quite common for a television series to improve from its very first episode, but Travelers just keeps getting better. While many shows hit something of a stride, a creative plateau if you will, this one keeps outdoing itself. So it’s with great happiness that we bring you the news that we’re going to keep on traveling!
One thing that’s changing, apparently, is Travelers will be exclusive to Netflix. For the first two seasons it was a joint venture between Netflix and Canada’s Showcase. The way it worked was it broadcast on Showcase first, then went to Netflix for the rest of the world to enjoy. I’m hoping this new “Netflixclusive” situation means everyone, no matter where you live, can enjoy it at the same time.
Here’s the full press release hot off the grill:

SEASON THREE OF TRAVELERS TO DEBUT ONLY ON NETFLIX
Eric McCormack, who is set to direct the season three debut, confirmed the news today:
“Before I was Will Truman again, I was a Traveler. And I am so excited to be able to tell our fans, worldwide, that Brad Wright’s subtle and stunning sci-fi drama is back for a third season. I am so proud of this show, particularly that it’s all-Canadian. From our devoted Vancouver crew, to an uber-talented young cast who hail from Alberta, BC, Manitoba and Ontario, to my producing partners and our Toronto roots, Travelers is a series as Canadian in its creation, as it is global in scope. I am counting the days ‘til I return, not just as Special Agent Grant MacLaren, and as a producer, but as the director of the 3rd season premiere. Travelers will continue to be unwavering in its dedication to Canadian talent, and in its drive to be one of the strongest, most binged shows on Netflix.”
Travelers executive producers, Brad Wright and Carrie Mudd of Peacock Alley Entertainment, added:
“Our partner Eric said it best. We’d like to add our gratitude to our viewers in Canada on Showcase – as well as the Corus and Sky Vision teams – for two extraordinary seasons. We are excited to start shooting Season 3 this March in Vancouver, and to continue the Travelers story for fans in Canada and around the world, only on Netflix.”
Some of the cast tweeted out the news and their reactions. Here are a few.
