The series was considered as NBC's hot pilots, but after "Timeless" came back from its winter hiatus, it has experienced a shocking viewership drop. Now the fate of the show is not clear, and whether or not there's going to be a Season 2 is a question that's left unanswered.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the show's executive producers said that they will be pitching Season 2 next month since that they have more stories to tell. They added that they are hopeful that their plan will be approved. The finale hinted that Wyatt is going to move on from the past, and a lot of fans would like to see where Lucy and Wyatt would go.
EP Shawn Ryan said that they are very interested as well about Rufus and Jiya's relationship. Also, "Timeless" Season 2 may shed light on whether Connor Mason can be really trusted. They are also planning to add new antagonists to the show and to go to periods of history that they haven't gone to.
Den of Geek said that showrunner Eric Kripke posted on Twitter to encourage the use of the #RenewTimeless hashtag, and for fans to stream "Timeless" from Hulu as well. He also said that although this will not guarantee that the show's ratings will improve, the chances of a Season 2 will "greatly grow."
During the Television Critics Association Press Tour in January, NBC's head, Jennifer Salke, said that they admire the series and they support it. But she also said that she was surprised that the show did not get a higher number. The show experienced a 25 percent drop in total viewers after its winter break.
Salke also did not give a specific comment about the show's fate. She said that they thought "Timeless" could benefit from an earlier timeslot. Fans can only hope that NBC will approve "Timeless" Season 2. We will have to see next month as to what the network's verdict will be.
