No Season 4 for the sci-fi drama.
February 1, 2019
It looks like Travelers has reached the end of the road. Show star Eric McCormack shared the news on social media today that Netflix has cancelled the sci-fi drama after three seasons.
"Hey my fellow travelers," said McCormack in a video addressed to his fans. "First of all let me say a huge thank you to your ravenous response to Season 3." He continued, "A lot of you have been asking about the possibility of a Season 4. 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. Who knows what the future holds, but Travelers Program 1, as we call it, is complete."
Travelers 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 aired 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.

I loved this show. I'm bummed. But rather three great seasons than no seasons at all :).
2. Netflix is becoming SyFy and I'm not OK with that. Get your sh!t together, Netflix!
