We know there are plenty of big hitters on Netflix. But there are some gems that seem to fly under the radar and Travelers is one of them. The show first aired in Canada in 2017. Two seasons were streamed before Netflix took over the rights to it. They then commissioned Travelers Season 3 which will stream exclusively on Netflix.
For fans of the show the good news is that an air date has finally been given for Season 3. Get ready to binge watch because it drops on December 14th!

If you haven't already seen seasons 1 and 2, then you absolutely have to. That is, of course, if you want to have any hope of following the storyline. My handy review of it is here. The premise of the show is simple. Time Travelers have come back, from hundreds of years in the future, hoping to stop a catastrophe that marks the demise of human kind.
These travelers inhabit the bodies of people who are on the brink of death. This allows for a seamless transition into the host. They must then both live the life of the person who's body they are now in as well as team up each other, against ‘the faction' to carry out life saving missions. I know, I know, it all sounds totally implausible – except that it's not – at least in the context of the show.
All of the main cast are back including Eric McCormack, Mackenzie Porter, Jared Abrahamson, Nesta Cooper, Reilly Dolman and Patrick Gilmore. For those of you already up to date with the time traveling goings on, season 3 promises to be even more exciting.
Our Travelers are pushed to the limit as they deal with loyalty, trust and death. The Director, the AI-powered entity that dictates their missions, is growing in power. And their existence is now out in the world. Each team member will face their own personal breaking point, all while trying to stop the Faction. Which, by the way is trying to take down the Director. And they must hunt down the elusive rogue agent Traveler 001.
I cannot wait! Roll on Travelers Season 3!
