A drama series that has been canceled by NBC will have a special two-hour finale on the network on Thursday, Dec. 20. The network announced plans today for a two-part finale to send off “Timeless.”
The time travel series, which debuted in fall 2016, aired two seasons on NBC, with season two initially wrapping up back in May.
“‘Timeless’ executive producers Eric Kripke, Shawn Ryan and Arika Lisanne Mittman are promising fans an epic, unforgettable thrill ride through the past, present and future, with a healthy dose of Christmas spirit,” NBC said in today’s announcement. “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 show’s cast includes Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Malcolm Barrett, Goran Visnjic, Paterson Joseph, Sakina Jaffrey and Claudia Doumit.
Ryan and Kripke are the creators, writers and executive producers. Mittman is showrunner and executive producer. John Showalter will direct and executive produce. John Davis, John Fox and Marney Hochman also executive produce.
“Timeless” is a production of Sony Pictures Television, Davis Entertainment, MiddKid Productions and Kripke Enterprises.
