NBC has announced plans to bring back its recently cancelled series “Timeless” for a two-part series finale. The telemovie will allow a resolution of the cliffhanger at the end of the second season and offer a proper conclusion to the story.
The series follows Rufus (Malcolm Barrett), a scientist; Wyatt (Matt Lanter), a soldier; and Lucy (Abigail Spencer), a history professor, who attempt to prevent the destruction of our world as we all know it by an organisation known as Rittenhouse who is using time travel to manipulate history.
Lisa Katz, co-president of NBC Entertainment scripted programming said in a statement: “We’re excited to tell one final chapter to this incredible story. 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.”
Creators Shawn Ryan (“The Shield”) and Eric Kripke (“Supernatural”) also commented on the two-part series finale, saying: “While we wish we could’ve made another dozen seasons of Timeless, this is the next best thing. We’re thrilled to take the Lifeboat out for one last spin and bring closure to our story. The studio, network, cast, and crew are all doing this for one reason only: the fans. Because they deserve it. Because the fans made this happen and we thank them for their passion, support, and helicopters. So? You guys want to get Rufus back or what?”
The second season premiered in March this year, no word on when the finale will air.
