Timeless has been in the news quite a bit recently. First, NBC renewed the TV series for a second season only after cancelling it. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has quietly settled a lawsuit with Spanish media company Onza Entertainment.
The action-adventure drama follows a history professor, a soldier, and a scientist as they travel through time to stop a mysterious criminal. The cast includes Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Malcolm Barrett, Goran Visnjic, and Paterson Joseph.
Last September, Onza Entertainment sued NBC, claiming Timeless “was “ripped off” from Spanish drama El Ministerio del Tiempo (The Department of Time). Later, NBC and production company Sony fired back, saying the time-travel genre lends itself to overlap.
Now, it appears the lawsuit has been settled, with both parties filing a joint motion for dismissal earlier this week.
What do you think? Are you a fan of Timeless? Are you excited there will be a second season?
I haven’t seen this tv series yet. I was really disappointed when the series “Time After Time” was canceled only after one season. I’ll have to watch Timeless to see how it compares.
Glad this is out of the way!
Filming for season 2 begins on November 13. 🙂
