All six episodes of The Time Traveler’s Wife have aired on HBO. It wasn’t the end of the story, though. Will there be a second season?
It was clear early on in the series that six episodes would not be enough to tell the full story of The Time Traveler’s Wife*. The Season 1 finale got us to Clare and Henry’s wedding, with 28-year-old Henry finding out that he has a vasectomy in the future because his children keep time traveling out of Clare’s womb. The miscarriages are hard on both of them.
Now we’re left wondering what’s to come next. Those who have read the novel or seen the movie know that there’s more to the story. There is a daughter to meet. However, we need The Time Traveler’s Wife Season 2 for that to happen.
The Time Traveler’s Wife cancelled after one season
There is some disappointing news. HBO has made the decision to cancel The Time Traveler’s Wife. Deadline reported the sad news.
It’s not 100% clear why the cancellation has happened, but it was a HBO decision. Steven Moffat still had stories to tell in this adaptation. The only reason HBO would cancel the series is if there wasn’t the following the network hoped for.
While HBO doesn’t rely on advertisers, it still needs the TV shows to perform well. The benefit of HBO is that it can track the ratings easily through the app. The Time Traveler’s Wife aired on both HBO and HBO Max and it’s possible to track the ratings on both of these directly.
Fans will need to turn to the novel or the movie* to find out how Clare and Henry’s story comes to an end.
