Axed: Timeless (again)
Time runs out for US time-travel series.
US sci-fi Timeless, which is yet to debut in Australia, has been axed by NBC for second time.
Last year, NBC reversed their decision to cancel the time travel drama after one season and picked it up for season two. The series features Goran Visnjic, Abigail Spencer, Malcolm Barrett, and Matt Lanter.
But co-creator Shawn Ryan shared his disappointment on Twitter.
“This is a sad day for the writers, actors, crew and especially the viewers of Timeless. We are all extremely proud of what we made and know that it was more than just a show for so many of our fans. It became a passion and a cause for many of them,” he wrote.
“We’re proud of the impact Timeless had on so many people – the students who embraced history as a result of our show, the people who were inspired by our stories of inclusion and acceptance. We saw your tweets and were inspired by you.”
But it has also been reported that there are discussions on a two-hour movie to wrap up storylines.
“If NBC is sincere in wanting a 2 hour movie to give much needed closure to our amazing Timeless fans, we are ready to make it. We don’t want the journeys of Lucy, Wyatt, Rufus and the others to end yet,” Ryan wrote.
Nine is understood to have the rights for Australia but yet to schedule the series.
