Time-travel drama Travelers has been one of my favorite streaming shows of recent years. It followed a group of time travelers sent from hundreds of years in the future to try to avert multiple catastrophes that left the world ravaged by war and environmental disaster, with humanity eking out its survival in a handful of biodomes. The first two seasons were produced by Showcase in Canada and streamed by Netflix. The third, released last December, was a Netflix exclusive.
Alas, that's where Netflix's involvement ends, with lead Eric McCormack (of Will & Grace fame) announcing that the show has not been renewed for a fourth season.
Unlike viewers of other cancelled shows, we are at least spared the misery of an unresolved cliffhanger. The third season felt perhaps a little rushed—it could have made its way to the same endpoint over many more seasons—but it ended in a way that wrapped up the story and even gave some of the characters a happy ending. But even with the story wrapped up, it left plenty of room for exploring the same universe. Moreover, it strongly implied that the future crisis had not been averted and that there was still work for the time travelers to do if a brighter future for humanity was to be created.
