Has Fellow Travelers been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Fellow Travelers is a well written and enticing historical drama, complete with great acting and some stand-out moments along the way.

If you’ve finished watching this one, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know so far:

What is Fellow Travelers about?

Fellow Travelers is the latest Showtime drama, which follows the lives and volatile romance that ensues between two very different men. We’re in the year 1950, deep in the heart of Washington, where Hawkins Fuller is a war hero moving up the ladder at the State Department.

However, his world is turned upside down when he meets religious Tim Laughlin. The pair’s chemistry crackles immediately, and they start an affair that puts the pair of them in jeopardy.

Has Fellow Travelers been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, Showtime have not renewed Fellow Travelers for a second season. Given the nature of this series, and how it’s set up, it’ll be interesting to see if it does get the nod.

Generally Showtime, like other streaming platforms and networks, gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton etc.). Other times, it can take months before Netflix make a decision over a show’s future.

So far, Fellow Travelers e has had a good reaction from audiences and critics alike, with many enjoying the drama and romance elements of this one. The completion rate is also another point of contention, although this does also have good engagement online, according to the guys over at TelevisionStats

What we know about season 2 so far:

Not much is known about season 2 at the time of writing, given Showtime have only just dropped the first series on TV. Should this be renewed, all of our characters will likely be returning, and we’ll follow more of their turbulent journey.

However, we’ll have to wait and see what the official word is from Showtime on this one first!

  1. If people are expecting a continuation of the story with the same characters, I’d remind them that Tim would have to survive the rest of the eighties with full-blown AIDS (not to suggest that doing so would be impossible by any means, just very unlikely, given the lack of effective treatments at the time), and in the nineties, Hawk would be in his seventies and Tim in his sixties. I’m inclined to take Showtime at its word that Fellow Travelers is a limited series and take that for what it’s worth.

  2. I am now watching season one of Fellow Travelers. It is one of the most compelling series that I have watched in a long time. The storyline is excellent, and the acting is superb. I actually signed up for Showtime in order to watch all of season one. If it is renewed, I will keep Showtime for sure. I am not saying that keeping Showtime entirely depends on a second season; however, a second season of Fellow Travelers will seal the deal. It really is that good.

  3. I’m enjoying the show very much. The story line is fascinating in many levels – politically, people prejudices and intolerance but, above all the true love between the main characters. The actors are excellent!
    I certainly hope there will be a Season 2.

  4. Can’t imagine what another season would entail but wonderful writing and acting. An important and tragic story worth telling again and again.

  5. It is one of the best written programs I have seen. The acting if finaminal and the story lines are amazing. It is so relevant even in today’s world. The injustice that some humans have to endure is heartbreaking. So many unanswered questions. Please please renew!!!!

  6. Enjoying the series so much! Great writing and acting. Love the volatile but tender relationship between Hawk and Tim. Definitely want to see a season two!!

  7. Great show….acting superb….plot very interesting. I’m more than roped in and hope there will be a Season 2.

  8. I am emotionally smitten with the superb story telling . It strikes me in the gut! Brings back many memories. I would love to see a series evolve from this.

  9. Poignant, troublesome and gut-wrenching period in our history. Well acted and scripted, reflecting the hypocrisy of the McCarthy era. Racial and sexual tensions clash with the changing culture. The arrival and awareness of AIDS brings heartbreak within and without the gay community. I hope this examination of the cultural shifts and historic missteps continues into a second season.

  10. A well written story on a somewhat challenging subject including excellent characters and acting abilities. Not sure the direction it will go if there is a Season 2, but hope there is one.
