NBC can make time for Timeless, after all. In what’ll sound like borderline miraculous news for fans of the recently axed series, the rookie series is returning for a second season.
The Hollywood Reporter reports (as they are wont to do from Hollywood) that Timeless is returning to the Peacock Network just days after the same network decided to part ways with the sci-fi time-travel drama. It wasn’t unreasonable to imagine Timeless and its stars Abigail Spencer, Malcolm Barrett and Matt Lanter could see a second season on a different network, but this sort of reverse course renewal from the same network? That’s wild. And the sort of thing that stings like a dagger in the hearts of die-hard fans of other canceled too soon shows. (WHERE WAS THIS THINKING WHEN M.A.N.T.I.S. WAS ON THE AIR?)
