NBC Changes It’s Mind And RENEWS ‘TIMELESS’ For Season 2!
This is not a joke! This is not a gag! NBC just announced they have reversed their decision on Timeless, and decided to renew it for a Season 2 after all!
It seems Sony Pictures Television, who produce the show, have been working on NBC behind the scenes to come to a financial arrangement that will work for the network… i.e. handing over a larger portion of the profits. There is also talk of moving the series from it’s current 10pm slot, to a more family-friendly 8pm time. This seems sensible to me, as I can’t see any reason Timeless would need to air in a post-watershed slot.

For those that missed it on E4, Timeless is an action-adventure series in which a mysterious criminal (Goran Visnjic – ER) steals a secret state-of-the-art time machine, intent on destroying America as we know it by changing the past. This leaves an unorthodox team consisting of scientist/engineer Rufus Carlin (Malcolm Barrett – Better Off Ted), Delta Force Master Sergeant Wyatt Logan (Matt Lanter – 90210, Star Wars: The Clone Wars) and history professor Lucy Preston (Abigail Spencer – Suits, Mad Men) who use the machine’s prototype to travel back in time to critical events. They must try to stay one step ahead of the criminal mastermind, whilst making every effort not to affect the past themselves.
