'Timeless' canceled by NBC, but talks for a movie linger

It's the end Timeless fans didn't want to see happen, but NBC has officially canceled the series after two seasons.

Created by Kripke and Shawn Ryan, Timeless stars Abigail Spencer (True Detective, Rectify), Matt Lanter (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), and Malcolm Barrett (Preacher) as members of a team recruited to travel back in time to protect the past from a mysterious criminal. With talk of NBC and studio Sony Pictures Television looking into the possibility of a two-hour Timeless movie, the actress added, "I sincerely hope we get to do the Timeless movie to wrap up the story and get one more go to wrap up the series in a powerful & elegant way!" I was proud to bring a little positivity & inclusion into this f-d up world.

NBC briefly canceled the show last season before reversing course and ordering a second run. "You've fought so hard and deserve so much more", Lanter wrote.


"Thank you for all your support Timeless fans!" Still, the network is "interested" in putting together a 2-hour movie to wrap up the series. "We don't want the journey of Lucy [Abigail Spencer], Wyatt [Matt Lanter], Rufus [Malcolm Barrett] and the others to end yet".

Reactions follow below. We'll be updating as more come in. "Our fans really need to show up", he said in early May. The network killed the show past year only to bring it back days later after Sony agreed to hand over a 50% stake in the series to NBC's sister studio Universal Television. "We saw your tweets and were inspired by you". The series averaged an OK 2.2 Live+7 adults 18-49 rating, but underperformed compared to previous dramas that had launched in its post-The Voice 10 PM Monday time period.
