Is time running out for Timeless...again?
After NBC canceled the time-travel drama only to reverse the decision last May, the network is once again trying to make a decision regarding the show's future.
On a conference call with reporters on Sunday, NBC Entertainment's CEO Bob Greenblatt said the network will wait until after Timeless' season two finale airs before renewing or canceling it. Translation: Timeless fans better watch tonight!
Timeless isn't the only NBC show still on bubble-watch, as Mindy Kaling's freshman sitcom Champions, which is still airing new episodes, is also still waiting to receive word if they will get a season two.
"We try to give the producers the courtesy of letting their shows run and seeing what they do before we make a decision that's premature," Greenblatt explained. "We're going to make decisions on those after that."
He continued, "We're hopeful and realistic. We have a lot of shows and we've looked at the whole season, but we're going to take a look at those shows after they finish their runs and hopefully make a relatively quick decision on them."
Timeless co-creator Eric Kripke took to Twitter on Sunday to urge fans to watch the two-hour finale, admitting he was "nervous" about the show's future.
Report from the front: honestly, #clockblockers, I'm nervous. Could go either way. If you're a #Timeless fan, you must-- MUST-- WATCH LIVE TONIGHT at 9. We have to show a ratings spike. Spread the word! FIGHT! This is up to you now! (And its a GREAT finale). #RenewTimeless @nbc https://t.co/tw2ELKkeoV— Eric Kripke (@therealKripke) May 13, 2018
Timeless' finale airs tonight at 9 p.m. while Champions airs Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. on NBC.
(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
