The canceled NBC drama series Timeless will air its two-hour series finale on December 20 at 8 /7 central.
Executive producers Eric Kripke, Shawn Ryan and Arika Lisanne Mittman promised fans in a press release, "an epic, unforgettable thrill ride through the past, present and future, with a healthy dose of Christmas spirit. Spread across three centuries and two continents, the finale will test Lucy, Wyatt and the entire Time Team like never before as they try to #SaveRufus, preserve history and put a stop to Rittenhouse once and for all.”
The first season of the time-traveling series was originally canceled after one season back in 2017. However, after a fan uproar, the series was uncanceled but was axed again in June. NBC greenlighted the series-wrapping movie in late July.
Producer, Sony Pictures Television, had shopped the series to other networks in the summer but was unable to find a new home for it. Timeless creators, writers and executive producers Shawn Ryan and Eric Kripke said at the time, “While we wish we could’ve made another dozen seasons of Timeless, this is the next best thing.”
The series follows a soldier (Matt Lanter), a history professor (Abigail Spencer) and a scientist (Malcolm Barrett) who are trying to prevent a mysterious criminal from using a stolen state-of-the-art time machine, intent on destroying America as we know it by changing the past.
Original cast members returning include Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Malcolm Barrett, Goran Višnjić, Paterson Joseph, Sakina Jaffrey and Claudia Doumit.
The first hour of the show’s finale will be written by Lauren Greer (who penned the episode “The Day Reagan Was Shot”), and showrunner, Arika Lisanne Mittman (“Stranded,” “The Red Scare”), will handle the second hour. John Showalter, who directed the four previous Timeless installments, will direct both parts of the finale.
