With this week having seen Sleepy Hollow axed and renewals for Gotham, iZombie, The Originals, not to mention full season orders for Ghosted and Black Lightning, next up on the chopping block is the future of NBC’s Timeless.
Sadly for fans of the series, the network has moved to scrap the show after just one season.
Co-created by The Shield’s Shawn Ryan and Supernatural’s Eric Kripke, the show focussed on a team travelling through various points in time as they sought to track down a terrorist. Overflowing with conspiracy ideals and genuine character development, Timeless became a favourite of many a genre fan. Despite being praised by many, the series ultimately didn’t draw in enough eyes and ratings numbers for NBC to deem it worthy of renewing for a second season.
In fairness to Timeless, the early ratings were encouraging. The problem, though, was that the numbers simply weren’t what NBC were hoping for, with the network hoping to mirror the success and popularity of the likes of Blindspot and The Blacklist. By having their Taken series take over Timeless’ timeslot, the writing seemed sadly on the wall, and now NBC has finally pull the plugged on Timeless while renewing Taken for a second year – despite Taken not actually grabbing as much ratings as Timeless.
It was fun while it lasted, but now it seems as if Timeless has taken its last adventure.SHARE YOUR COMMENTS BELOW OR ON TWITTER @STARBURST_MAG
