'Timeless' Saved From Cancellation As NBC Reverses Course With Season 2 Renewal
This is not a drill: NBC has reversed course on its decision to cancel Timeless.
The network has renewed the Sony Pictures Television-produced time-travel drama for a second season.
It's unclear when season two of the series will air. Co-creator/co-showrunner Eric Kripke initially noted that it would air in summer 2018 with 10 new episodes, but that is not set in stone. Spring 2018 is also a possibility.
Producers Sony TV fought hard to keep the show going after the initial cancellation with both Kripke and co-creator/co-showrunner Shawn Ryan having pitched a family-friendly take on season two. Reports suggesting that the independent studio had been offering the lion's share of the profits to NBC in exchange for the renewal as SPT believe in the show's creative and that it has a solid chance to be a long-running, family-friendly franchise. Early buzz has Timeless moving from its former 10 p.m. slot to a potential home at 8 p.m. as it has been a favorite for co-viewing with parents and children.
Timeless becomes the lone time-travel show to survive the freshman bloodbath. Since canceled are Frequency, Time After Time and Making History.

The creator was asked about the future of his Emmy-winning FX anthology at ATX Festival, where he indicated that the Season 3 finale (airing on Wednesday, June 21) could very well serve as the show's swan song.
"There's only a certain amount of storytelling you can tell in that vein. And i love telling stories in this vein, but I don't have another one yet, "Hawley said, "So watch the 10th hour [of Season 3] because it might be the last."
Better to leave this series while it is still doing well than let the show drag on with stories that ain't worth jack shit.

The Game of Thrones alum will play Steven Crane, the oldest Crane sibling and a supernatural author who wrote a memoir about his family's time living at Hill House.

During their stay, they experience strange and unexplained events - particularly the shy, reclusive Eleanor Vance, who begins losing touch with reality, whether due to supernatural activity or her own imagination.
