Following the termination of the Netflix series Travelers, this article about Season 4 was updated on April 23, 2021. Continue reading for the original article, which has been updated to reflect recent developments.
You’ll never get around to watching all of the new shows on Netflix since there are so many. However, if you enjoy science fiction, Travelers should be at the top of your list. The show depicts operatives (travelers) who are sent back in time to take over the bodies of people just before they die. It’s up to them to prevent a post-apocalyptic future from occurring.
Unfortunately, that chance to save the world was never realized, as the series was terminated by Netflix before Season 4. Whatever the case, here’s all you need to know about the season that never was.
AT THE END OF TRAVELERS SEASON 3, WHAT HAPPENED?
Mac travels back 17 years into the body of his present host and sends an email to the Director, stating, “Traveler program will fail.” Send 001 instead.”
The Traveler Program version one status reads “FAIL” at the end of the finale, thus it appears to work. Version two of the Traveler Program is about to start.
WAS THE SEASON 4 OF TRAVELERS EVER RELEASED?
No. Eric McCormack, the show’s lead, confirmed the cancellation of Travelers on Twitter in February 2019.
“Many of you have been asking about the potential of a fourth season,” he said, “but many of you have also been saying, ‘Look, if this is it, what a poignant, surprising, and meaningful finale it is.'” That’s the case, unfortunately. Who knows what the future holds, but Travelers Program 1 is finished… 3468 in the twenty-first century”
TRAVELERS SEASON 4 WAS CANCELLED FOR WHAT REASON?
As is customary with Netflix’s announcements, the streaming service remained mum on the reason for the cancellation of Travelers. However, the show could have been produced by a studio other than Netflix. Several of the company’s shows, including American Vandal and numerous Marvel series, were canceled since they were not produced in-house. After two seasons on Showcase, Netflix acquired Travelers.
