The Season One finale of the time-traveling, love story The Time Traveler’s Wife left the audience on a cliffhanger. Henry, the time traveler whose DNA is scrambled, wrote a letter to Alba, his wife in the future. He let her know that he will be leaving soon and she needs to wait for him until he comes. Then he left and never came back.
The season only covered the first part of Audrey Niffenegger’s book about the time travel romance between Henry and Claire. The series also has a second book which has more episodes adapted on more screen time for Henry. This also helped to make the ending more understandable.
Introduction to The Time Traveler’s Wife Season 1
The time traveler’s wife is a story about love, complications, and the power of relationships. It follows the life of Henry DeTamble, an academic who never wanted to fall in love with Clare Abshire, a woman he first meets at an airport bar. As they grow closer over the years ultimately resulting in their marriage, Clare begins to experience unexplained seizures which she believes are caused by her ability to time travel while Henry struggles with his understanding of her condition and how it will impact their future together.
The story begins with a scene at an airport bar where Henry is telling a woman he doesn’t know about his condition. He says that he has been stuck between two places for the past thirty-six hours and is eager to get home. As the camera pans away from him, we see that he is in fact time traveling and the woman he was speaking to is Clare Abshire, his future wife.

The storyline of The Time Traveler’s Wife Season 1
Henry DeTamble is a man living with a genetic disorder called Chrono-Displacement (or “Chrono”) that causes him to travel involuntarily through time, appearing in places and times he is not supposed to. Henry has gaps in his memory and sometimes, he wakes up and finds himself in places where he does not belong. He also is unable to change the past nor does he know how to tell the future. This makes his life complicated, but at times, it also allows him to watch and gather information about various events and people.
Henry has a different relationship with time as compared to many of us. It is with time that he can make decisions, especially when it comes to women. Vernon, his best friend for most of his life, grows irritated at Henry’s inability to choose the correct time to meet up with Claire after she has gone back to the future from the year 1989. Vernon thinks that time is a series of predestined events and it would make more sense if Henry would follow what he was supposed to do. However, Henry presumes that every moment in time is unique and should be lived. He constantly says that one can not think about what should be or know what will happen.
The second season of Time Traveler’s Wife Seems Likely | Screen Rant
One day, the brilliant screenwriter and author Audrey Niffenegger told us that she was going to do a second season of her brilliant show, “The Time Traveler’s Wife” — but she had one condition.
She wanted no more than six movies per series. That is, with three seasons in total. Niffenegger said “three was good” because they would be long enough to satisfactorily explore their characters and worlds without being too long.
And anyways, the third movie is the one that would deal with time-traveling and mind-splitting. And we don’t want to overdo it, right?
But now it seems like pushing Niffenegger to do another series is a good idea. Because she’s working on a new novel called “Kindred”. And you know what this means: she might be ready to take hold of her past works and give them another shot.
So, what do you think about The Time Traveler’s Wife Season 1?
