Netflix Cancels Eric McCormack Drama ‘Travelers’ After 3 Seasons

McCormack broke the news on twitter Friday


Netflix has canceled its time-traveling drama “Travelers” after three seasons.

Eric McCormack, who starred in the drama, broke the news in a video on his Twitter account Friday.

“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.” Well, I’m afraid it is [the end],” McCormack said. “Who knows what the future holds, but Travelers Program 1, as we call it, is complete … Much love from 3468 in the 21st.”

The series was created by “Stargate SG-1” co-creator Brad Wright. “Travelers” took place hundreds of years into the future and centered on the last surviving humans who discover the means of sending consciousness back through time, directly into people in the 21st century. These “travelers” assumed the lives of seemingly random people, while secretly working as teams to perform missions to save humanity from a terrible future.

McCormack starred as FBI Special Agent Grant MacLaren. It originally aired in Canada, with Netflix picking up the drama as part of a deal between co-producers Peacock Alley and Showcase. Netflix distributed the series internationally and ultimately became the sole production company, helping it get a third season.

Wright addressed the cancellation as well on his own Twitter account, writing,”Thanks to the greatest cast, crew, directors, writers, artists and producing partners a guy could ask for. Love to you all. And to @Netflix for stepping up so we could make season 3!”
