The Lifeboat is officially making one last trip through time and space — and the stars of Timeless couldn’t be happier about it.
Per the Peacock Net, the entire cast — including Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Malcolm Barrett, Goran Višnjić, Paterson Joseph, Sakina Jaffrey and Claudia Doumit — is on board for the finale, and several stars of the beloved series quickly took to social media with their reactions to the news.
Spencer, who stars as Lucy Preston, thanked fans (aka Clockblockers) in a Twitter video for supporting the show so passionately — and she was so excited about Tuesday’s announcement, she spilled her coffee while celebrating:
Barrett (who plays Rufus Carlin), Lanter (who plays Wyatt Logan) and Goran Višnjić (who plays Garcia Flynn) all got into character for their Instagram video reactions, in which they reference Season 2’s cliffhanger ending:
Jaffrey and Doumit — who co-star as Denise Christopher and Jiya, respectively — were also overjoyed after news of the wrap-up movie broke:
As recently as July 2, co-showrunner Shawn Ryan had told fans that the chances of Timeless finding a new home were very slim, given “considerable economic obstacles” and the actors’ expiring contracts, though discussions of a wrap-up movie were said to still be taking place despite the grim update.
“While we wish we could’ve made another dozen seasons of Timeless, this is the next best thing,” Ryan and co-showrunner Eric Kripke said in a statement Tuesday. “We’re thrilled to take the Lifeboat out for one last spin and bring closure to our story. The studio, network, cast and crew are all doing this for one reason only: the fans. Because they deserve it. Because the fans made this happen and we thank them for their passion, support and helicopters. So? You guys want to get Rufus back or what?”
