Timeless Has a Two-Part Series Finale!
Everyone loved the new and interesting TV show created on the premise of time travel. It had common plot-lines to time travel themed stories but this one had a twist. A terrorist played by Goran Visnjic steals a time machines and goes back in time to mess with history in a way like we’ve never seen before. So, Homeland security paired up three people together to save the world from the unwanted consequences of Goran’s actions.
The team consists of a historian and anthropologist Lucy who’s serving as the brains of the operation, a military soldier Wyatt Logan to be the muscle and Rufus Carlin the computer programmer. The show has some fun moments such as using current names such as Dr. Dre and Nurse Jackie as aliases in the past when interacting with people but also some compelling ones in the latest episodes where everything is connected to the final event. The audience was pleased to see such character development taking place and finally talk about the beloved character Connor.
But despite it’s uniqueness, the network decided to cancel the show. When it was picked up by another one, it got cancelled for the second time. Though, today it has been stated that there will be a two-hour movie wrap to give the show the farewell it deserves. Obviously, NBC and Sony TV were discussing this in detail before the decision to get a finale was reached.
The writers of Timeless broke the news today on Twitter,
We're going to give NBC and our fans a really satisfying conclusion to this 28 episode tale. All you have to do is look at Star Trek to see how fandom can increase over the years and revive shows. Our advice is to get folks to watch #Timeless on Hulu and watch on NBC in December! https://t.co/llLIWkUdCs

It’s going to be available on Hulu in December. Even though the show wasn’t something entirely out of the box and had similar themes to shows we’ve previously seen, fans still couldn’t let this one go. They had proper campaigns in hopes of getting the TV show to be picked by another studio. Unfortunately, it wasn’t picked up but the audience was given this special finale.
Lisa Katz, the co-president of NBC shared that she was excited to give another final farewell to the show and added that,
“A huge thank you to all — our cast, crew, producers and partners at Sony – who have worked so very hard, and to the fans who kept us on our toes and made sure we did our very best week after week.”
The shows creators talked about the fact that they did want to create as many seasons as they could with Timeless but sadly this wasn’t the case. They still wanted to honor the show and will give it the best ending they deem fit to please the audience and give everyone the closure they want.
