Series star Eric McCormack broke the news on Twitter this morning, alluding (no spoilers) to the events of the final episode.
“A lot of you have been asking about the possibility of a Season Four,” McCormack said, “but many of you have been saying, ‘Look, if this is it, what a moving and surprising and profound ending it is.’ Well, I’m afraid it is.
“Who knows what the future holds. But ‘Travelers Program 1,’ as we call it, is complete.
“On behalf of our creator, Brad Wright, of my fellow producers and directors, designers, our writers, our amazing crew in Vancouver, and all of the cast — who I love more than they know — I want to say thank you.”

Travelers ran for two seasons as a co-production of Showcase in Canada and Netflix worldwide. For its third season the Canadian premium cable outlet exited the partnership, making Travelers a Netflix original.
The show starred McCormack as the leader of a team from the future, whose conscious minds are sent back to the present — into the bodies of people about to die — in order to avert a series of catastrophes and avert an apocalyptic future.
MacKenzie Porter co-starred alongside Nesta Cooper, Jared Abrahamson, Reilly Dolman, and Patrick Gilmore.
Gilmore followed Wright to Travelers from Stargate Universe. Travelers also saw Stargate favorites like Jennifer Spence, Amanda Tapping (“Samantha Carter”), Teryl Rothery (“Janet Fraiser”), and Tom McBeath (“Harry Maybourne”) in recurring roles.
All episodes of the show will continue to be available on Netflix.
