'Timeless' Renewed for Season 2 After Initial Cancellation

Timeless NBC changes course on Timeless, renews for second season
Elaine Woods | 14 May, 2017, 03:27

The new episodes will air in 2018.

"Timeless" lives again after a last-minute reversal by NBC. Our only hope is an unexpected team: Rufus, a scientist; Wyatt, a soldier; and Lucy, a history professor, all of who must use the machine's prototype to travel back in time to critical events.

Timeless ought to fare better as a midseason series, when competition tends to be lighter and audiences are looking for binge-worthy fare to enjoy over their summer breaks.

The renewal will not leave fans of the show hanging as Ryan and Kripke went with a Season 1 finale that ended in a cliffhanger and set up a second season.

Engineer charged in deadly Amtrak crash
The Bartlett native blamed for crashing an Amtrak that killed eight people and injured hundreds more will now face charges. A federal judge in October approved a record $265 million settlement for the accident victims.

The freshman time-travel saga spent most of the season on the bubble in spite of landing the coveted post-Voice time slot that NBC used to launch Blindspot last season.

Well, now season 2 will indeed be coming! "[Sony TV] had been offering the lion's share of the profits to NBC in exchange for the renewal as SPT believe in the show's creative and that it has a solid chance to be a long-running, family-friendly franchise", THR reporter Lesley Goldberg wrote. (Timeless is a co-production of Sony and NBC's Universal Television.) The series also ranked as the fourth-highest scripted series when all delayed viewing is factored in.

Lanter also announced the news via his Facebook page.

There have been just handful series that have been canceled and then un-canceled by the same network, including Fox's Breaking In and Lifetime's Drop Dead Diva. Since canceled are Frequency, Time After Time and Making History. While there is no clear indication as to when Timeless will return for its second season, at least fans can now rest easy knowing that the series will be back for more episodes in 2018.
