Is it really time for "Timeless" to end, or can the series find life elsewhere?
Show co-creator Eric Kripke confirmed that NBC canceled the time-traveling drama after its first season, which averaged 4.6 million viewers with a 1.1 rating in the advertiser coveted 18-49 demographic. As TVLine noted, the Season 1 finale ended on a cliffhanger, so fans hope that the story can continue somewhere else. Otherwise, why did they invest so much time and effort into the plot and characters only to have the rug swept out from under them, yet again? It doesn't exactly inspire confidence to try another new show, since networks will probably continue this same bait-and-drop pattern.
Here's a message from Kripke, with the promise of more to come from him later:
Actress/SNL-er Leslie Jones is a fan of the show and shared her disappointment with the cancellation:
Its true. NBC canceled #Timeless. We're surprised & upset. Get you a longer response later. Odds are long, but trying to find another home.— Eric Kripke (@therealKripke) May 10, 2017
Other viewers echoed her comments, calling it one of their favorite new shows of the year, and Twitter is now filled with frustrated fans.
WTF?! WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO TO KEEP A GOOD SHOW ON TV?! @NBCTimeless was an excellent show!!! Y'all making a huge mistake!!!— Leslie Jones (@Lesdoggg) May 11, 2017
#Timeless cancelled? How do these great sci-fi shows die after 1 season (cough cough Firefly), but other trash never freaking ends?— Dean Hoffman (@DeanthePolitic) May 10, 2017
