You guys wanna get Rufus back, or what? NBC, which cancelled its Timeless TV show in the wake of an enormous season two finale cliffhanger, is bringing back the Lifeboat for one more trip through time. The Peacock Network announced today that it has ordered a two-part Timeless TV series finale, which is expected to air during the winter holidays. The #Clockblockers have prevailed against the malign forces of Rittenhouse, if in a smaller way than most had hoped.
An NBC action-adventure series, Timeless stars Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Malcolm Barrett, Goran Višnjić, Paterson Joseph, Sakina Jaffrey, and Claudia Doumit. As the Time Team, their mission is to prevent the destruction of the world as we know it, by villains intent upon messing with the timeline. Susanna Thompson, Annie Wersching, and Michael Rady recur in season two as members of the nemesis organization, Rittenhouse. NBC officially cancelled Timeless last month. And that was the second cancellation. The time travel drama was also cancelled, then renewed following its first season on the network.
Cancelled TV Show Timeless Renewed for a Two-Part Series Finale
Fans, who style themselves “#Clockblockers,” have been rallying hard for a continuation of the Eric Kripke-Shawn Ryan drama, since prior to the season two finale. Recently, the Save Timeless team hired a helicopter (or ‘heliclockter’) to fly a banner over San Diego Comic-Con. (Footage is sideways.)

According to executive producers Shawn Ryan and Eric Kripke, audiences can expect the “Timeless” they know and love. A focus on the unsung and underrepresented people of history. And most importantly, one final emotional story for the Time Team.
“We’re excited to tell one final chapter to this incredible story,” said Lisa Katz, Co-President, Scripted Programming, NBC Entertainment. “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.”
“While we wish we could’ve made another dozen seasons of ‘Timeless,’ this is the next best thing,” said Ryan and Kripke. “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 cast includes Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Malcolm Barrett, Goran Višnjić, Paterson Joseph, Sakina Jaffrey and Claudia Doumit.
Shawn Ryan and Eric Kripke are the creators, writers and executive producers. Tom Smuts and Arika Lisanne Mittman are co-showrunners and executive producers. Don Kurt, Greg Beeman, John Davis, John Fox and Marney Hochman also executive produce.
“Timeless” is a production of Sony Pictures Television, Davis Entertainment, MiddKid Productions and Kripke Enterprises.
