Everything You Need to Know About 'Travelers' Season 4

Their conscious minds have traveled back in time to save the world.

Netflix is packed with so many new programs, you’ll never get around to seeing all of them. But if you’re a science fiction fan, you’d do well to put Travelers at the top of that endless list. The series follows operatives (travelers) whose conscious minds are sent back in time to take over the bodies of people in the moments before their deaths. It’s up to them to save the world from a post-apocalyptic future.

Season 3 hit Netflix a couple weeks ago, so there’s a decent chance you’re already gearing up for Season 4. Here’s everything you need to know about the future of Travelers and what you can expect from the show in 2019.

Spoilers for Travelers Season 3 below.

What Happens at the End of Travelers Season 3?

In another attempt to save the world, Mac travels back 17 years into the body of his current host and sends an email to the Director, “Traveler program will fail. Do not send 001.”

It appears to work, as the finale ends with the status of Traveler Program version one reading “FAIL.” However, Traveler Program version two is just about to begin.

When Is the Travelers Season 4 Release Date?

The series has yet to be renewed, so we don’t know if there will be another season.

The first two seasons aired weekly in Canada, premiering in October 2016 and October 2017. Netflix released the third season in December of this year. It’s unknown if the streaming service would want to stick to that pattern if it renews the series.

When Will a Season 4 Trailer Be Released?

Netflix released the Season 3 trailer on December 3, a week and a half prior to dropping the new episodes. If there is a fourth season on Netflix, it’s likely a similar pattern will be followed and fans should expect a trailer in the weeks leading up to the Season 4 release date.

How Many Episodes Will There Be in Season 4?

We don’t know. There were 12 episodes each in Seasons 1 and 2, but Season 3 only consisted of 10. We can assume that if there is a Season 4, that it will have 10-12 episodes.

What’s the Season 4 Plot?

Since the series has yet to be renewed, we don’t really know. We can assume that it will likely follow what a second version of the Traveler Program will look like, but it’s unclear if the same characters will be back. The reset of the program due to the events of the Season 3 finale means that there are several ways this could play out.

It’s even possible that events of the first three seasons could play out in different (but perhaps slightly similar) ways.

Travelers Seasons 1-3 are now streaming on Netflix.
