The cancelled drama's story will get a proper conclusion.
July 31, 2018
Just over a month after NBC broke the hearts of #Clockblockers by cancelling Timeless for a second time, it has been confirmed that the show will indeed be returning for a two-part series finale.
The news will surely delight fans of the time travel drama, who were left hanging after a major cliffhanger at the end of its sophomore run. At the time of its cancellation, there were rumors of a possible return to properly wrap up its story but the likelihood of it actually happening was unknown.
Timeless premiered in 2016 with a good amount of momentum behind it. Created by two veteran producers, the series was given a high profile time slot on Monday nights along with heavy promotion. While it was well-received by critics, a solid start in the ratings was not long-lasting, and the show was cancelled for the first time at the end of its freshman run.
NBC eventually had a change of heart and decided to bring the show back for a second season, but its sophomore numbers only further declined. It wasn't much of a surprise when the network cancelled the show once again, but fans were nonetheless upset. And while a third season will not be happening, this two-part finale will provide at least a sense of closure.
Look for the Timeless series finale to air sometime during the holiday season.
I know you wanted more seasons. But this 2 hour finale will let us end the story right & #SaveRufus. EVERY convo I had with @Sony & @nbc was about the fans. Giving them the ending they deserve. Cause they spoke so loudly. Thank you, #Clockblockers #TimelessSavedAgain @NBCTimeless pic.twitter.com/g7n79fdSua— Eric Kripke (@therealKripke) July 31, 2018
I loved being introduced to people that I could then research. Grace Quackenbos Humiston and H. H. Holmes were 2 I found of particular interest. I was also nudged to learn more about Katherine Johnson among many others.
I realize this show is entertainment, but they managed to weave in enough real history that they encouraged me to research multiple things/people that were both known and unknown to me. I appreciated that very much.
Kudos, Timeless, for making an interesting show.
Plenty of "real" seasons end. Most actually don't have a cliffhanger. If they took it away the first season and the show had to fight to get a second season they should have realized it was not going to last. So many of the fans did and stopped watching. They treated it like they owned the network. They did not. If they cared about the show they could have wrapped it with room to make a 3rd season. They must not have cared about the fans or the story.
I find it hard to watch anything new for fear it gets canceled, at least this way we get a proper ending.
