First some quick news: Timeless is #1 in its time slot, and has been extended by NBC to a full season of 16 episodes! From their press release:
“‘Timeless’ is a phenomenal new show that takes the audience emotionally to a completely different place and time each week,” added Jennifer Salke, President of NBC Entertainment. “We’re thrilled to be ordering additional episodes so that we can run the final six hours of the season in a row with no pre-emptions after the new year. Our hats are off to Eric Kripke and Shawn Ryan for producing one of the most ambitious new shows anywhere on television.”
“Timeless,” which stars Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Malcolm Barrett, Goran Višnjić, Paterson Joseph, Sakina Jaffrey and Claudia Doumit, has averaged a 2.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 10.7 million viewers overall in live + 7, making it the top-rated Monday drama so far this season in 18-49.
“Timeless” is undefeated in its Monday 10-11 p.m. ET slot among the ABC, CBS and NBC dramas thus far in “live plus same day” ratings through its first four weeks on the schedule.
The Los Angeles Times said “Timeless” is a “high-minded adventure thriller,” The New York Times called it “a good-natured science-fiction adventure series” and the Washington Post praised it as “thought-provoking.”
Shawn Ryan and Eric Kripke are the co-showrunners, writers and executive producers. John Davis, John Fox and Marney Hochman also executive produce.
Next Time on Timeless
Timeless will return on November 14th after a week off while Saturday Night Live: 2016 Election Special airs in it’s place. When it returns, we will be on a trip back to the 1970’s:
THE WATERGATE TAPES: What happens to Lucy, Rufus, ad Wyatt in Nixon-era Washington will expose their deepest secrets. The mystery behind the greatest political scandal of the 20th century is finally solved when Flynn (Goran Višnjic) beats our team to the punch in Richard Nixon’s Washington. While Rufus (Malcolm Barrett) and Lucy (Abigail Spencer) are set on an investigative course that leaves them both rattled to the core, Wyatt’s (Matt Lanter) tragic past erupts, and the secrecy behind Flynn’s hidden agenda begins to unravel. Also starring Paterson Joseph, Sakina Jaffrey and Claudia Doumit. Guest starring Mustafa S. Shakir and Tiffany Mack.
After last week’s amazing look into Wyatt’s past, I’m really interested in just how much more there is that is going to “erupt” in this coming episode. Plus, we will are being promised some actual time with Flynn and his agenda – which is ABOUT TIME! So while we have 11 days to wait until the next episode, have some promo photos and let’s speculate on what’s to come.
