Timeless follows the adventures of history professor Lucy Preston (Abigail Spencer), scientist Rufus Carlin (Malcolm Barrett) and soldier Wyatt Logan (Lanter) who travel through time in a time machine. Fans online also started a #SaveTimeless campaign. With the economics even on NBC's most successful owned series, the Chicago franchise, challenging with lack of off-network deals and modest worldwide sales, I hear the network set strict guidelines for its bubble drama series with outside suppliers, Warner Bros. "Seriously. Airs next summer".
Or at the very least, the fan outcry - and Timeless fans are passionate enough to form a small militia - led to the show getting uncanceled, something that basically never happens.
"Timeless" was a quintessential bubble show this season, averaging a 1.1 rating in adults 18-49 on the night it aired but scoring pretty strong delayed-viewing numbers (it rose to 2.1 after a week of DVR catchup). Kripke posted, "Correction. Info moving fast. The trio must use the stolen machine's prototype to journey back in time to critical events, being careful not to affect history themselves, while working to stay one step ahead of the villain who would unravel the timeline and understand the mystery driving his mission before it's too late". "Can't wait to show you more", Ryan also tweeted.

Jews regard the area where the al-Aqsa Mosque is situated as the Temple Mount. Erdogan said Jerusalem is holy for Muslims, Jews and Christians.
Saturday, it reversed its decision - and chose to bring the show back for a ten-episode second season. "They legit heard from the fans and changed their minds!" But we're airing!" In another tweet, he wrote, "And THANKS for the fan support.
Kripke added: "So huge thanks to NBC for supporting us". We went back to the drawing board, with our partners at Sony, and we found a way to bring it back.
