It was announced today that Netflix has renewed Travelers for a third season. Show star Eric McCormack broke the news on his Twitter account, sharing word of the show's pickup with fans and also confirming that he will be directing the premiere episode.
The series debuted in late 2016 as a co-production with Showcase in Canada, which aired the first two seasons for viewers up north. For Season 3, however, Travelers will be airing exclusively on Netflix worldwide.
Taking place hundreds of years in the future, the show follows the last surviving humans who work to prevent a terrible future from taking place by sending their consciousness back in time to the 21st century. Known as travelers, they assume the lives of random people as they undertake high-stakes missions in order to save humanity.
Look for Season 3 of Travelers later this year.

Recently I started watching some of the original (a little before my time) on Hulu and also looked into the actors and the movie. At the time, I found old controversy but no mention of a reboot.
I'm glad I am in the habit of checking back into threads of interest to me. I never know what I will learn.
And I LOVE Travelers!
Thanks for making me remember about the 60's "Lost In Space"... I was just a kid then, watching with my parents, and it was even scarier than "The Outer Limits". The new "Lost in Space" starts in a month, so I'll keep an eye on the reviews: not sure it will be as effective as the original... with a woman in the role of Dr. Smith??? Time will tell...
