Travelers is set hundreds of years from now when 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.
Season 2 picks up on the group’s realization that their missions might have altered the future in ways they did not predict.
Travelers, which debuted in Canada in October, was the highest-rated new fall series across Canadian Specialty, according to Numeris data. The series’ first season was released by Netflix in December
The show stars Eric McCormack, Jared Abrahamson, Nesta Cooper, Reilly Dolman, Patrick Gilmore and MacKenzie Porter. Leah plays Kathryn MacLaren.
