THIS POST CONTAINS POSSIBLE SPOILERS FOR "TRAVELERS" SEASON 2. IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THIS EPISODE YET, AND DO NOT WANT TO SEE OR READ POSSIBLE SPOILERS, DO NOT CONTINUE READING THE ARTICLE BELOW OR VIEWING THE PHOTOS AT THE BOTTOM.
The second season of Travelers starts tomorrow in Canada (and soon on Netflix I'm sure). The cast & crew were hard at work getting it done back during the spring & early summer here in Vancouver.
After last seasons amazing first season, I was pretty hyped on the second season, and with the announced additions of Stephen Lobo from Continuum, Amanda Tapping from Sanctuary and Enrico Colantoni from Person Of Interest, this next season has me even more excited.
This past year, I was lucky enough to catch them out filming 4 or 5 times, but only two of those locations did I manage to get any shots from the set.
The first set I shot was early in their filming season as I caught up with the crew and cast member Reilly Dolman as Philip Pearson shooting a scene where he walks down the street talking with a pretty stunning looking red headed woman that I dont immediately recall seeing in season 1. The scene was basically just the pair walking & talking. After they wrapped the scene I was lucky enough to get Reilly to sign my cast photos which I already had Eric McCormack on from a previous interaction elsewhere.
Later on in the season I caught up with the cast again at a building in the Kerrisdale/West Side aprt of Vancouver. There I saw Eric, MacKenzie Porter and Jared Abrahamson. They were dressed as Grant MacLaren, Marcy Warton and Trevor Holden. It was all interior shooting, so i was unable to get any photos of them, but I did manage to meet MacKenzie and Jared there and got them to sign my cast photo.
As the season was winding down, I was eagerly looking for chances to catch up to them, but kept finding them at either hard to get to locations, locations where seeing them would probably be difficult, or days when it was raining it seemed. By this point I was also eagerly trying to track them down to get Enrico, but was finding the task of simply finding them, and having the time to go for them, challenging.
I managed to find them two more times on back to back days very late in their filming season. First, at the DelMar Hotel with Patrick Gilmore and MacKenzie Porter shooting scenes as David Mailer and Marcy Warton. The scene was in the hotel, so there was nothing to see, but I met MacKenzie and Patrick outside after the wrapped a scene. Managed to get Patrick on my cast item and chatted with the pair for a couple minutes. The next day, I found the same pair shooting a scene just a few blocks from the day before shoot. This time they were in an alley used by many productions just off the east end of Victory Square. The scene they shot had Marcy & David talk, before Marcy kisses him. In a funny twist, The Flash was shooting just a couple blocks from there, and 1 of the crew members came over to me and told me that they werent The Flash, when I told him I knew, and knew exactly what it was, he seemed both surprised and happy that there were people taking an interest in there show...... we'll see if that same level of enthusiasm is there if this show is around for 4 or 5 seasons. I find crew usually are pretty happy with any recognition for 1 or 2 seasons.
When season 3 starts filming, I'll be eagerly trying to track them down again. I mean for one, I still need Nesta Cooper to finish my cast items, and I still need to meet Enrico, but also, Travelers was 1 of my top 3 favorite shows to come out of 2016.
Travelers returns in Canada on Showcase TOMORROW NIGHT October 16, 2017.
It will return on Netflix soon (and hopefully in CANADA too this time.)
