Unfortunately, it appears that The Time Traveler’s Wife has met an untimely end after just one season following its late June finale. HBO will not be moving forward with a second season.
The six-episode drama series, which premiered on the network in May, was based on the novel by Audrey Niffenegger, following the story of the intricate, magical, and emotional love story between Clare Abshire (Rose Leslie) and Henry DeTamble (Theo James), a couple with a huge problem in their marriage … time travel.
At 6 years old, Clare meets Henry, the future love of her life — and who, as a time traveler, is actually visiting from the future. Fourteen years later, when a beautiful redhead wanders into the library where Henry works claiming not only to have known him all her life but to be his future wife, a magical romance ensues that is as sprawling and complicated as Henry’s attempts to explain his “condition.”
The Time Traveler’s Wife also starred Desmin Borges, Natasha Lopez, Caitlin Shorey, Everleigh McDonell, Brian Altemus, Jason David, Michael Park, Jaime Ray Newman, Taylor Richardson, Peter Graham, Kate Siegel, Josh Stamberg, Chelsea Frei, Marcia DeBonis, Will Brill, and Spencer House.
HBO’s take on Niffenegger’s story comes in just over a decade after the 2009 film starring Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana.
