Man, Wyatt Logan and his team have changed history yet again: Timeless is coming back for a second season at NBC, despite the network cancelling the time-travel drama just days ago, TVLine has confirmed.
Star Matt Lanter broke the news via a Facebook video he shot in character. (Watch it below, or click here.)
“I just wanted to hop on and tell you that I think the mission was successful,” he says as Wyatt in the video. “We went back, and I’m pretty sure we changed NBC’s minds. So yeah, we’ve got more episodes coming. See you real soon.”
NBC axed its sixth-rated drama four days before that decision was reversed; at the time, series co-creator Eric Kripke tweeted that he and co-creator Shawn Ryan would try to find another home for Timeless, but the “odds are long.”
A Peacock net insider tells TVLine, “We heard the fans and didn’t want to be on the wrong side of history.”
Ryan tweeted on Saturday that the show may return as early as Spring 2018.
Co-creator Eric Kripke exuberantly thanked fans, as well as those involved in the renewal decision. He also confirmed that Season 2 will consist of 10 episodes.
