Showcase’s breakout new series “Travelers” has been renewed for a second season.
With production on the upcoming season set to start this March in Vancouver, lead actors Eric McCormack, Jared Abrahamson, Nesta Cooper, Reilly Dolman, Patrick Gilmore, and MacKenzie Porter have all signed on to return.
“From ‘Lost Girl’ to ‘Continuum’, Showcase has a proven track record for delivering quality, homegrown hits,” said Daniel Eves, Senior Vice President of Kids and General Entertainment at Corus Entertainment. “‘Travelers’ is an exemplary production that spotlights Canadian talent on screen and off and it’s an honour to add Brad Wright’s latest masterpiece to our roster of critically-acclaimed original series.”
“Travelers” is a science-fiction series that tells the story of a group of people from the future who are sent back in time to prevent the collapse of society. The “Travelers” assume the lives of random people before their actual time of death in what’s known as transfers of consciousness.
The series first premiered on Showcase Oct. 17 in Canada, followed by an international release on Netflix in December.
“Travelers” airs on Showcase Mondays at 9 p.m. ET.
