'Timeless' Un-Cancelled! Axed Drama Now Renewed for Season 2 at NBC

Timeless Renewed for Season Two! NBC Reverses Cancellation Decision

Timeless is no longer canceled despite it looking that way days ago. Co-creator/co-showrunner Eric Kripke initially noted that it would air in summer 2018 with 10 new episodes, but that is not set in stone.

An NBC rep says fan outcry played a factor in the decision, but per The Hollywood Reporter and others, producer Sony's offer of "the lion's share" of profits from the show helped too.

This is particularly good news as the show wasn't just a case of the week time travel mystery show: with a dense mythology and some intricate character work, Timeless would have left many strands dangling if someone hadn't picked it up.

Kripke and co-creator Shawn Ryan both tweeted the un-cancellation update, along with their current information about the air date.

She holds the record for the most spacewalks by a female United States astronaut, and today's outing will be her ninth. The tank ran out of fuel after three minutes, and White had to pull himself back to the capsule by his tether.

This renewal also is further proof that live+same day ratings are no longer the only thing that matters when it comes to keeping a show around. We went back, and I'm pretty sure we changed NBC's minds.

- Eric Kripke (@therealKripke) May 13, 2017When all delayed viewing is considered. we were the 4th highest rated scripted series on NBC this year.

Timeless becomes the lone time-travel show to survive the freshman bloodbath.

Were you one of the fans who hoped for a Timeless renewal? Television to succeed as neither is vertically aligned with a Big Four broadcast network. It's glorious news, and it's also a testament to the massive support base who fought to keep the show alive after the news first broke of NBC dropping the guillotine on it. While there is no clear indication as to when Timeless will return for its second season, at least fans can now rest easy knowing that the series will be back for more episodes in 2018.
