Plot Synopsis

Hundreds of years from now, the last surviving humans discover the means of sending consciousness back through time, directly into people in the 21st century. These "travelers" assume the lives of seemingly random people, while secretly working as teams to perform missions in order to save humanity from a terrible future. These travelers are: FBI Special Agent Grant MacLaren, the team's leader; Marcy, a young, intellectually disabled woman in the care of her social worker, David; Trevor, a high school quarterback; Carly, a single mom in an abusive relationship; and Philip, a heroin-addicted college student. Armed only with their knowledge of history and an archive of social media profiles, the travelers discover that 21st century lives and relationships are as much a challenge as their high-stakes missions. On Friday, December 23, 2016 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, this time-traveling sci-fi drama had its U.S. premiere, as Netflix released the 12-episode first season. Season 2 of TRAVELERS had its U.S. premiere on Tuesday, December 26, 2017 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Netflix released the 12-episode second season. In the new season, FBI agent Grant MacLaren and his team investigate a mysterious fellow traveler while resisting the Faction, a renegade splinter group from the future. Held in custody, MacLaren's team tries to escape and destroy the quantum frame, while an eccentric traveler confesses his story to a psychiatrist. MacLaren and Walt pursue a mysterious, unexpected group of new travelers, while Marcy helps David recover from trauma and Philip makes a new friend. Three months after the team's last assignment, the discovery of bodies at a construction site alerts the travelers to a global pattern of killings.
On Friday, December 14, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released the U.S. premiere of the 10-episode third season of TRAVELERS. With the truth about their existence exposed to the world, MacLaren and his team must cover their tracks, partner with the FBI, and find Traveler 001. Season 3 opens with MacLaren, his team and their loved ones regrouping at a safe house protected by the FBI, but doubts and betrayals may sabotage the rest of their mission. MacLaren and Yates adjust to their new partnership while protecting a TV show host whose inflammatory rhetoric about Travelers has led to tragedy. Certain that his team erased his memory of the previous day, MacLaren retraces his steps in the case of a disturbed youth with a horrific future.
