‘Timeless’ Saved From Cancellation as NBC Reverses Course With Season 2 Renewal

This is not a drill: NBC has topsy-turvy march on a preference to cancel Timeless.

The network has renewed a Sony Pictures Television-produced time transport play for a second season. 

It’s misleading when deteriorate dual of a play will air. Co-creator/co-showrunner Eric Kripke primarily remarkable that it would atmosphere in summer 2018 with 10 new episodes, though that is not set in stone. Spring 2018 is also a possibility. 

Producers Sony TV fought tough to keep a uncover going after a initial termination with both Kripke and co-creator/co-showrunner Shawn Ryan carrying pitched a family-friendly take on deteriorate two. Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that a eccentric studio had been charity a lion’s share of a increase to NBC in sell for a renovation as SPT trust in a show’s artistic and that it has a plain possibility to be a long-running, family-friendly franchise. Early hum has a play relocating from a former 10 p.m. container to a intensity home during 8 p.m. as a uncover has been a favorite for co-viewing with relatives and children. (The Smithsonian also hosted a row for a show.)

The beginner time-travel tale spent many of a deteriorate on a burble in annoy of alighting a desired post-Voice time container that NBC used to launch Blindspot final season. The Shawn Ryan-Eric Kripke play did not get a full-season pickup, with NBC instead opting for a 16-episode season.

Initially, NBC opted to replenish Blindspot after Warner Bros. Television offering an tenure interest in a array and larger financial incentives. Sony primarily offering a financial inducement for a uncover to lapse though sources contend NBC eventually suspicion about some-more of a artistic and a form of programming they’d wish to deposit in and picked it adult but changing a terms of a co-production. (Timeless is a co-production of Sony and NBC’s Universal Television.) The array also ranked as a fourth-highest scripted series when all behind observation is factored in.

Timeless becomes a sole time-travel uncover to tarry a beginner bloodbath. Since canceled are Frequency, Time After Time and Making History.
