Storyline

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.

The cleverest time travel execution so far
23 October 2018 | by AntonThSee all my reviews

I just stopped watching 12 Monkeys because after six episodes I found it quite boring, flat, repetitive and full of plotholes. It might have been watchable for me if I hadn't seen Travelers first.

'Travelers' adds limitations, new aspects and hurdles to the time travel concept that manage to keep it fresh. After all, when time travel is just a matter of flipping a switch, who cares what happens anyway.

At the end of the second season, the plot gets messy and it's time to wrap up but season 3 renewal seems to be confirmed. I hold my breath!
