[ # ] Timeless’ time ran out
June 22nd, 2018 under NBC


NBC wanted to cancel Timeless after its first season, but the fans rallied hard to get it a second one. The show changed things up for the second season and it was for the better. Sadly, the ratings were worse. Therefore, NBC decided that they had no more time for the show about time.

The show’s creator Eric Kriptke wrote, “Gutted by this, guys, I know you are too. Behind the scenes, Sony has been trying hard to set it up elsewhere, but no luck so far. I think this 2 hour movie is our best shot. We’re ready to make it if @nbc really wants it. Let ’em know how you feel. #clockblockers.” And they he added, “THANK YOU cast, writers, crew and most all all, the #clockblockers for your brilliance & passion. I love you all. I was proud to bring a little positivity & inclusion into this f-d up world. I will keep my personal thoughts about network TV private until we get this movie made. One last thing: whether there’s a show or not, we’re all family now. We’re all #clockblockers, baby.”

The show’s other creator Shawn Ryan had this to say about the cancellation, “This is a sad day for the writers, actors, crew and especially the viewers of Timeless. We are all extremely proud of what we made and know that it was more than just a show for so many of our fans. It became a passion and a cause for many of them.We’re proud of the impact @NBCTImeless had on so many people – the students who embraced history as a result of our show, the people who were inspired by our stories of inclusion and acceptance. We saw your tweets and were inspired by you. If NBC is sincere in wanting a 2 hour movie to give much needed closure to our amazing @NBCTimeless fans, we are ready to make it. We don’t want the journeys of Lucy, Wyatt, Rufus and the others to end yet. #ClockBlockers.”

When it comes to how I feel about it, I really hope they get the two-hour movie. The show’s second season was educational besides being fun. They taught me about Robert Johnson and I have been listening to his music ever since. And that is just one of the many examples of why I loved Timeless so much. The cast, the writing and the history lessons. I learned more from Timeless than I did in high school. Granted I didn’t take history in HS, but you know what I mean.
