No Season 2 for the time travel drama.
May 10, 2017
It is being reported that NBC has cancelled Timeless after its first season. This is sad news for fans of the show, as its final episode in February left with a cliffhanger that will now go unanswered.
The action drama premiered last fall as part of the network's fall line-up with a lot of momentum behind it. The show was created by two veteran producers, had a high profile time slot airing after The Voice on Monday nights, was heavily promoted, and received high critical praise from early reviews. While its premiere episode got off to a solid start, ratings slipped in subsequent weeks leaving only a limited audience who kept tuning in.
Signs the show was in trouble started to become apparent early on. When NBC added additional episodes to the show's freshman run, only three were ordered. Co-creator Eric Kripke also cautioned fans on his Twitter page, writing that its live viewer ratings likely needed to improve to warrant another season.
Timeless followed a team of time travelers who were chasing down a mysterious criminal intent on changing the past in order to destroy America. The team worked to keep up with the dangerous fugitive to stop his path of destruction, while being careful not to let their actions adversely affect the past.
nananana hey hey good bye
We really thought that NBC would back this show, butnow we don't want to take a risk with another new series this fall, on NBC, only to have it canceled as well.
My entire extended family, as well as co-workers, enjoyed watching it, but I guess we will look for our next family hour on Netflix or Amazon Prime.
Thankfully, we have a smart TV.
We will miss NBC, having watched shows for over 50 years, but every good thing must come to an end.
Thanks for the memories.
Saw it coming when there was no word for so long though. Really disappointed, especially after that insane cliffhanger. Maybe I'm just slow but I didn't see it coming at all and I was really excited for where they would go. Blah.
george you are wrong. At first NBC ordered 13 episodes then upped it for 3 more for a total of 16 which is what they got. NBC did not order 16 episodes and then up it 3 more so no NBC did not order more. NBC ended it on a cliffhanger not the creators of the show.
