Timeless’ Renewed or Cancelled: Will Abigail Spencer’s Show be Back for Season 2? By Daniel S. Levine

I have been researching Timeless’ destiny but have been coming up empty handed. That is, until today. A Bing search yielded this article, about 7 days old. At the very least, I now know that Timeless is on the “bubble”. By now, most shows have either been renewed or sent to cancelation hell. NBC has certainly gotten hopes up by ordering more episodes. The series complied and Timeless managed a full season with an unfinished story. Timeless’ basic storyline is not a new idea, but a fresh take on time travel. It has an ensemble of excellent actors backed up by script writers weaving their magic for each foray into a different time in history. We have a team with established chemistry: Lucy Preston, Rufus Carlin and Wyatt Logan. The plotline from IMDb states: “A trio travels through time to battle a master criminal out to alter human history in this drama.”. This master criminal is Garcia Flynn. This series has kept me glued to my tv and DVR. The ratings in that coveted 18-49 demographic have been fairly stable with some slight dips. I think that speaks well for a freshman drama. NBC, please don’t let Timeless slip down the “bubble” into cancelation oblivion! – M Barnett

Although the ratings for the show haven’t been great, its creators are confident that there will be more episodes in Fall 2017 and that’s how they wrote the season one finale…

After a presidential campaign notable for its demonization of racial, ethnic, and religious minorities – and now under a presidency that is continuing that dangerous trend – some people are feeling more validated and emboldened than ever. On public forums like Twitter, there’s been an uptick of harassment and threats (see here and here, for example) from racist, sexist, homophobic, and anti-Muslim individuals. And some of their victims have felt they have no choice but to quit the platforms and silence themselves….hatespeech
