NBC’s resurrected sci-fi thriller Timeless returns for season two (thanks to a successful campaign by fans) on March 11, 2018. Season one earned mostly positive reviews from critics, and genre fans latched on and threw their support behind the time-travel series. Ratings weren’t quite what NBC expected and the network initially cancelled the series before abruptly changing course and renewing Timeless after a passionate and persistent campaign by fans.
When the show returns it will be with Abigail Spencer (Rectify), Matt Lanter (Star-Crossed), Malcolm Barrett (Dear White People), Goran Višnjić (ER), Paterson Joseph (The Beach), Sakina Jaffrey (House of Cards) and Claudia Doumit (New Girl) in starring roles.
Timeless was created by Shawn Ryan and Eric Kripke who serve as writers and executive producers. Tom Smuts (Bosch), Arika Lisanne Mittman (Elementary), Don Kurt (Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams), Greg Beeman (Falling Skies), John Davis (The Blacklist), John Fox (The Blacklist), and Marney Hochman (The Chicago Code) also executive produce. Smuts and Mittman are the co-showrunners.
The Timeless Season 2 Plot: Season 2 of this thrilling action-adventure series will pickup right where we left off with our heroes. We continue to race throughout history with our beloved team: Rufus (Barrett), a scientist; Wyatt (Lanter), a soldier; and Lucy (Spencer), a history professor, in an attempt to prevent the destruction of our world as we all know it. This season they’ll find an unlikely ally in their quest to ruin Rittenhouse, a deadly organization with plans to change history and reshape reality — even though Lucy’s family has been a part of Rittenhouse for centuries.
Still making every effort not to affect the past themselves, they will visit 1692, 1917, 1941, 1981 and more. We’ll be introduced to the likes of Marie Curie, Hedy Lamarr, William Randolph Hearst and a multitude of other influential people throughout history.
A Look Back at Season 1: Timeless is an action-adventure series in which a mysterious criminal steals a secret state-of-the-art time machine, intent on destroying America as we know it by changing the past. Our only hope is an unexpected team: a scientist, soldier and history professor who must use the machine’s prototype to travel back in time to critical events. While they must make every effort not to affect the past themselves, they must also stay one step ahead of this dangerous fugitive. Can this handpicked team uncover the mystery behind it all and end his destruction before it’s too late?
