“The Time Traveler’s Wife” To Premiere On HBO Go In May

The highly-anticipated series adaptation of The Time Traveler’s Wife, starring Theo James and Rose Leslie, is set to premiere exclusively on HBO and HBO GO on May 16.

An extraordinary tale of a moving and spellbinding love unfolds in the new HBO Original series The Time Traveler’s Wife. The six-episode science-fiction and romantic drama premieres at the same time in the U.S. on Monday, May 16 at 9 am on HBO and HBO GO, with the same day 10 pm encore on HBO. A new episode will follow every Monday.


The Time Traveler’s Wife is an intricate and magical love story, adapted by Steven Moffat (Doctor Who, Sherlock) from the much-loved novel by Audrey Niffenegger and directed by David Nutter. The genre-bending drama series expertly weaves themes of love, loss, marriage, and survival – into a story that defies the laws and logic of time.


The Time Traveler’s Wife is based on the 2003 Audrey Niffenegger novel about Henry DeTamble and Claire Abshire, who must deal with DeTamble’s ability to time travel in their marriage.


The duo is shown discussing the difficulties they’ve faced in their circumstances in the two-minute-and-a-half clip, and subsequently attempting to “change the future.”


“The danger isn’t the worst,” Leslie’s character said in the clip. “I love Henry more than I could love anybody else.… Why is love intensified by absence? ”


Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones) plays Clare Abshire, who is fiery, smart, and unstoppable – and she has had an astonishing secret for most of her life. Clare meets Henry, the future love of her life – and who, as a time traveler, is truly visiting from the future – when she is six years old. Fourteen years later, Rose enters the library where Henry, played by Theo James (Divergent), works, claiming not only to have known him her entire life but also to be his future bride.


A mystical romance unfolds that is as broad and intricate as Henry’s attempts to explain his “condition.”


In a plot that defies time’s laws and logic, the genre-bending drama series brilliantly mixes themes of love, grief, marriage, and survival.


​​Aside from James and Leslie, the six-episode series also stars Desmin Borges, Natasha Lopez, Josh Stamberg, Kate Siegel, and Jaime Ray Newman. It is helmed by former Doctor Who showrunner and Sherlock co-creator Steven Moffatt.


“It’s a story of happy never after – but not necessarily in that order,” Moffatt said in a statement to Deadline.
