backpackers2CW Seed’s Backpackers is making the jump from online to primetime, with 10 original half-hour episodes set to premiere this summer on the CW. In the digital series Backpackers, best friends Ryan (Noah Reid) and Brandon (Dillon Casey) race across Europe in search of Ryan’s missing bride-to-be, while also struggling with the eternal twenty-something question of what to do with their lives. The first four episodes will contain material previously released as digital episodes on CW Seed. The last six episodes specifically will be written and produced for the network. A premiere date and time will be announced later.
