NBC Cancels TIMELESS Again, May Order a Two-Hour Series Finale

Last year, Timeless defied the odds by surviving cancellation after its first season. NBC had made the call to let go of Timeless, but the network quickly reversed itself after an outpouring of support from fans of the show. This year, Timeless once again came up on the bubble of renewal, and NBC has canceled it again. Unfortunately, this is one crisis that the Lifeboat team may not be able to solve.

Via The Hollywood Reporter, there is some hope that the cliffhanger ending from Timeless season 2 may be resolved in a two-hour movie that would act as a series finale. That appears to be the only option currently on the table to continue the series. As part of last year’s renewal, Sony TV gave NBC Universal a 50% ownership stake in Timeless. That may have limited the show’s options to find a new home.Timeless co-creator Shawn Ryan shared a statement on Twitter thanking the fans, the performers, and the team behind the series for their two-season run. He also expressed optimism about the potential finale movie.

Series stars Abigail Spencer and Matt Lanter also weighed in with messages of support and gratitude to the Timeless fans.

At the moment, it’s unclear how close a Timeless series finale movie is to becoming a reality. Even if it goes forward, new deals will have to be made with the performers to bring them back one last time. Or could there be a miraculous season pick-up like Netflix’s recent acquisition of Lucifer?
