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
More reality shows... um...NO. there's enough of that crap already.
Big Erns ... We care
If the creators wanted the story wrapped up they would have done it during the 2nd season. (a cancellation then renewal is a good sign your not getting a 3rd season. you go season by season after that)
