NBC Uncancels Timeless, Says Writer Eric Kripke

NBC Uncancels Timeless, Says Writer Eric Kripke

NBC's freshman time travel drama has been renewed for a second season days after getting canceled, EW has confirmed.

In picking the show up for Season 2, NBC has made a decision to run with a condensed season consisting of 10-episodes and has elected to move the drama to summers beginning in 2018. Timeless is no longer canceled despite it looking that way days ago. Our only hope is an unexpected team: Rufus, a scientist; Wyatt, a soldier; and Lucy, a history professor, all of who must use the machine's prototype to travel back in time to critical events.

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

The Hollywood Reporter followed up on Kripke's announcement to confirm that Timeless will air a second season with NBC in summer 2018 and to dish a few details on why the network changed its mind. While that episode count is down from the show's 16-episode first season, something tells me Timeless fans are going to be more than pleased with a 10-episode sophomore season!

The series stars Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Malcolm Barrett, Goran Višnjić, Paterson Joseph, Sakina Jaffrey and Claudia Doumit.

Timeless is a thrilling action-adventure series in which a mysterious criminal steals a secret state-of-the-art time machine, intent on destroying America as we know it by changing the past. "Can't wait to show you more", Ryan also tweeted. Showrunner Eric Kripke, who had been active on social media to try and rally fan support for months, had hinted at the slim possibility of shopping Timeless season 2 around to other distributors, but now it seems that won't be necessary.

Are you excited to hear that Timeless will be coming back for a second season?
