Moments after it was announced on Friday that Timeless would not be returning for a third season, the cast of NBC’s little-show-that-could took to Twitter to thank fans for their support — and to discuss (fingers crossed!) a potential wrap-up movie.
Co-star Abigail Spencer (aka Lucy Preston) added, “It’s true. Thank you for all your support #Timeless fans! It’s been an absolute joy playing your Lucy. I sincerely hope we get to do the Timeless movie to wrap up the story and get one more go to wrap up the series in a powerful & elegant way! More soon!”
Other reactions, like that of Sakina Jaffrey (aka Denise Christopher), were a little more blunt — and came equipped with visual aids:
One of the series’ creators, Eric Kripke, tweeted, “Gutted by this, guys, I know you are too. Behind the scenes, Sony has been trying hard to set it up elsewhere, but no luck so far. I think this 2 hour movie is our best shot. We’re ready to make it if @nbc really wants it. Let ’em know how you feel.” He added:
Co-creator Shawn Ryan tweeted that this is a “sad day for the writers, actors, crew and especially the viewers of Timeless,” adding:
The show’s writers also offered their condolences via their official account, tweeting, “We’re so sorry the news isn’t better. We have fought so hard for the past weeks and will continue to fight to be able to tell more of this story. Thank you so much for your amazing fandom. It has meant so much to us.”
