SHOWCASE ANNOUNCES SECOND SEASON FOR FALL’S #1 NEW SERIES TRAVELERS
Created and Written by Brad Wright, Season 2 Sees All-Canadian Cast Return with Series Star Eric McCormack
Production Begins this March in Vancouver
Toronto, Canada – Showcase announced today that Travelers, the #1 new Fall series*, will return for a second season with production beginning this March in Vancouver. Produced by Peacock Alley Entertainment Inc., in association with Showcase and Netflix, Season 2 of the time-travelling sci-fi drama will air exclusively on Showcase in Canada in Fall 2017. Series Writer and Creator Brad Wright returns, along with series leads Eric McCormack, Jared Abrahamson, Nesta Cooper, Reilly Dolman, Patrick Gilmore, and MacKenzie Porter.
“From Lost Girl to Continuum, Showcase has a proven track record for delivering quality, homegrown hits,” said Daniel Eves, Senior Vice President, Kids and General Entertainment, Corus Entertainment. “Travelers is an exemplary production that spotlights Canadian talent on screen and off and it’s an honour to add Brad Wright’s latest masterpiece to our roster of critically-acclaimed original series.”
Season 1 of Travelers followed a group of people from the future who have discovered how to send consciousness back through time, directly into people in the 21st century. These “travelers” assumed the lives of seemingly random people, while secretly working as teams to perform high-stakes missions in order to save the world from a terrible future. Starring Eric McCormack as FBI Special Agent Grant MacLaren, MacKenzie Porter as Marcy, Patrick Gilmore as David, Jared Paul Abrahamson as Trevor, Nesta Cooper as Carly, and Reilly Dolman as Philip, Season 2 of Travelers picks up on the group’s haunting realization that their missions may have altered the future in ways they did not predict.
“I couldn’t be more proud of the Canadian team who worked passionately to bring this new series to life,” said Brad Wright, Writer and Creator, Travelers. “We are so excited to reunite in Vancouver this spring and start our work on the sophomore season for Showcase.”
“I’m as proud of Travelers as any show I’ve ever been part of,” said Eric McCormack. “And I’m blown away by this extraordinary young cast as any group of actors I’ve ever worked with. That the entire team is Canadian is icing on the cake, which makes my friend, Brad Wright, the cherry on top.”
Travelers is produced by Peacock Alley Entertainment Inc., in association with Showcase and Netflix, and is distributed by Sky Vision.
