Canadian actor Colantoni will play the mysterious Vincent, an individual who may or may not be a friend of the travellers.
With production now underway in Vancouver, Colantoni broke the news from the Travelers set with McCormack. Stephen Lobo (Continuum) will appear as a recurring character and Amanda Tapping (Sanctuary) will return to direct multiple episodes and guest star.
“Travelers is an exemplary original production bursting with Canadian talent on screen and off,” said Lisa Godfrey, vice-president Original Content, Corus Entertainment. “We attribute this talent to the series’ success here in Canada on Showcase and are very proud to be working with this incredible team on a second, action-packed season.”
Travelers follows a group of people from the future who have discovered how to send consciousness back through time, directly into people in the 21st century.
These “travellers” assumed the lives of seemingly random people, while secretly working as teams to perform high-stakes missions in order to save the world from a terrible future.
Season 2 picks up on the group’s haunting realization that their missions may have altered the future in ways they did not predict.
