Timeless Uncancelled by NBC: Season 2 Ordered by Network

While Timeless was still on the bubble, Sony TV is believed to have offered guaranteed profits - which is one of the avenues pursued by networks these days, along with ownership stakes, license fee reduction and domestic/international distribution rights - but couldn't get to the level required by NBC.

I plan on watching the first episode of Timeless to see what fans love so much about this show. While there is no clear indication as to when Timeless will return for its second season, at least fans can now rest easy knowing that the series will be back for more episodes in 2018. The company said that the next season would air in the more family-friendly eight P.M. timeslot and, at show creators Eric Kripke and Shawn Ryan's suggestion, would be geared toward a younger audience. "Once it came off the schedule in midseason, we thought, 'Well, we love it, but can it grow and do we have a place for it?' - all those questions you ask when you're looking at the renewal of a show that is a borderline".

This renewal also is further proof that live+same day ratings are no longer the only thing that matters when it comes to keeping a show around.

Timeless is the only time-travel show to survive the past week, as Time After Time, Frequency, and Making History were all done away with.

In a post on Twitter, none other than show executive producer Eric Kripke confirmed that the NBC show will be returning despite their previous decision. That makes things incredibly hard for indie studios like Sony and Warner Bros.

Kripke's announcement of the show's twist of fate was appropriately on theme: "The #TimeTeam went back 3 days, and changed history".

"I just wanted to hop on and tell you that I think the mission was successful", he says as Wyatt in the video.

Lanter also announced the news via his Facebook page.
