The full ensemble includes Abigail Spencer as Lucy Preston, Matt Lanter as Master Sergeant Wyatt Logan, Malcolm Barrett as Rufus Carlin, Sakina Jaffrey as Denise Christopher, and Paterson Joseph as Connor Mason. While fan campaigns helped to resurrect shows such as Star Trek, Firefly, and Farscape in various ways, most stories simply come to an end, remembered only when they appear on a streaming service.
Someone must've gone back in time and changed history, because NBC just made a huge reversal. While the show's creators, Shawn Ryan and Eric Kripke, reportedly announced they were shopping Timeless around to other networks, the Timeless fandom went into overdrive on social media with hashtags like #SaveTimeless to demand the show's renewal. "Seriously. Airs next summer".
Season two of the drama will return with 10 new episodes in summer 2018 after producers Sony TV fought hard to keep the show going. It's most certainly a happy ending for the show, but there's reason to remain a bit anxious that Timeless could still be on the NBC bubble with its below-average 10-episode Season 2 order.
That would be the Saturday 10 AM PT joint announcement by Ryan and Kripke on Twitter.
Correction. Info moving fast.
The series begins with mysterious criminal Flynn stealing a secret state-of-the-art time machine, intent on destroying America as we know it by changing the past. "Can't wait to show you more".
"We woke up the next morning, all of us, and heard from fans and the outcry, and we thought let's figure out how to bring it back", he says. And THANKS for the fan support.
"Timeless", a family friendly show, features chracters that go abck in time during major historical events.
