Travelers Season 3 Details
The newest poster art for Travelers season 3 brings a new style to the Netflix-only production of this Canadian show.
The once-again Will of Will & Grace, Eric McCormack, returns to the role of Grant MacLaren for Travelers Season 3, and we’re biting our fingernails waiting to see where things will go from that rather-too-cliffhanger-y Season 2 finale. At least, we’re relieved to find out that we won’t be left hanging.
After the March announcement of the Travelers Season 3 renewal, McCormack provided the following message to fans:
“Before I was Will Truman again, I was a Traveler. And I am so excited to be able to tell our fans, worldwide, that Brad Wright’s subtle and stunning sci-fi drama is back for a third season. I am so proud of this show, particularly that it’s all-Canadian. From our devoted Vancouver crew, to an uber-talented young cast who hail from Alberta, BC, Manitoba and Ontario, to my producing partners and our Toronto roots, Travelers is a series as Canadian in its creation, as it is global in scope. I am counting the days ‘til I return, not just as Special Agent Grant MacLaren, and as a producer, but as the director of the 3rd season premiere. Travelers will continue to be unwavering in its dedication to Canadian talent, and in its drive to be one of the strongest, most binged shows on Netflix.”
Magda Apanowicz (Continuum, Caprica) expressed her excitement on Twitter that she would be joining the cast for Travelers season 3. She joins other Continuum alumni such as Jennifer Spence, Ian Tracey, and Patrick Gilmore in the Vancouver-based series.
Production on the third season began on March 26, 2018 and wrapped on July 6.
