‘Timeless’ Officially Canceled by NBC

Sadly, time is officially up for the fan-favorite NBC series Timeless. The network announced on Friday that the series would not be renewed for a third season leaving fans hanging in the balance of a major cliff-hanger.

This is the second time the series has faced cancelation. Last year, NBC’s announcement of cancelation was met with a fierce outcry from fans pleading with the network to save the series. Just days later, the network announced its change of heart and renewal of the series for a second season. This time, however, the decision is most likely permanent.

Cast and crew shared their reactions via their social media pages. Series star Matt Lanter wrote, “I love you #Clockblockers. You’ve fought so hard and deserve so much more.”

Abigail Spencer wrote a heartfelt thanks to the fans by saying, “It’s true. Thank you for all your support #Timeless fans! It’s been an absolute joy playing your Lucy. I sincerely hope we get to do the Timeless movie to wrap up the story and get one more go to wrap up the series in a powerful & elegant way! More soon! xoxo”

Timeless co-creator Shawn Ryan sent a series of tweets expressing his thoughts and thanking cast, crew and the fans:

Co-creator Eric Kripke echoed their sentiments. Before thanking the cast and crew, Kripke says there are plans for a 2-hour movie which would bring closure to the cliff-hanger series. He writes, “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”
