The show, which was recently canceled by the network, is now being picked up for another 10 episodes. Initially thought #Timeless would be on next summer, now it may be 2018 spring. Despite an underwhelming 4.6 million viewership and 1.1 share average, the fan support for this show became evident on social media as #Timeless trended for hours after the news the show had been canceled.

Ever since Quantum Leap was given the most heartbreakingly abrupt ending back in 1993, I've been hoping that the American TV Gods could come up with another fun time travel series. Created by Eric Kripke and Shawn Ryan, Timeless had found a dedicated audience and pulled in impressive critical response, but was untimely axed after its short, 15-episode first season. NBC canceled #Timeless. We're surprised & upset.

The show will have some changes when it returns: according to The Hollywood Reporter, Kripke and Ryan went back to NBC with a family-friend pitch for additional episodes, and the studio has reportedly offered up a better financial package for the network.

Also renewed for a second season, albeit in a more conventional way, was Starz's American Gods.

Tyson Fury eyes return to the ring in July
Joshua earned $15 million from the Klitschko fight and now stands to earn more on the strength of the dramatic win. I saw him at Bethnal Green before the Olympics and he was a nobody back then - people were walking past him.


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. (Timeless is a co-production of Sony and NBC's Universal Television.) The series also ranked as the fourth-highest scripted series when all delayed viewing is factored in.

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.

Someone must've gone back in time and changed history, because NBC just made a huge reversal.
