Travelers is a science fiction television series created by Brad Wright, which was first aired on Netflix in 2016. The show is set in a post-apocalyptic world in the future, where a group of time travelers, known as Travelers, has been sent back to the 21st century to save humanity from a certain doom.

The plot of the series revolves around the lives of the five travelers - Marcy Warton (played by Mackenzie Porter), Trevor Holden (played by Jared Abrahamson), Carly Shannon (played by Nesta Cooper), Philip Pearson (played by Reilly Dolman), and Grant MacLaren (played by Eric McCormack). These travelers are sent back to the 21st century from the future to prevent the collapse of society and to change the course of history.

The show is filled with action, adventure, and a lot of time travel, as the travelers navigate through the complexities of the past and present to achieve their mission. As they travel back in time, they inhabit the bodies of people who are already dead, but whose deaths have not yet occurred, and then assume their lives to carry out their mission.

The first season of the show sets the stage for the mission of the travelers, with the main focus being on their interactions with their host bodies, their relationships with each other, and their attempts to change the course of history. As the series progresses, the travelers reveal more of their backstory, and their connection to each other becomes stronger.

One of the show's unique features is the way it uses technology to enhance the travelers' abilities. They receive updates and mission briefings via computer links, and they also use advanced technology to collect information and analyze data. The travelers also use the information they have gathered to predict how certain events will unfold in the future, allowing them to change the past in profound ways.

Another notable aspect of the show is the extent to which it explores the human psyche, and the ethical considerations that arise when one is tasked with altering the future. The travelers are forced to make difficult decisions that test their loyalty to each other and the effectiveness of their mission.

Despite its heavy sci-fi nature, Travelers is also a character-driven series, with each traveler being a well-defined individual with a unique personality, strengths, and weaknesses. They all have their own personal struggles and demons to overcome, which makes them more relatable to the audience and adds depth to the show.

In conclusion, Travelers is an excellent science fiction series that explores complex themes such as time travel, technological advancement, and the human psyche. The show is filled with action, adventure, and drama, and the characters are well-rounded and relatable. The series has since been discontinued after three seasons due to low viewership, but it remains a fan favorite, and a must-watch for any sci-fi enthusiast.

Travelers is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (34 episodes). The series first aired on October 17, 2016.
