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.
