We were very disappointed when NBC cancelled its time travel drama Timeless. Now the producers and cast talk about the moment they learned it had been renewed.
From Entertainment Weekly:
The cast of Timeless was just as shocked and thrilled as the show’s fans when the series got a surprise renewal — just days after it had been canceled — for a second season.
Stars Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Malcolm Barrett, and Goran Visnjic, along with executive producers Shawn Ryan and Eric Kripke, stopped by EW’s video studio at Comic-Con to talk to EW SiriusXM radio host Jessica Shaw and PEOPLE/Entertainment Weekly editorial director Jess Cagle about that happy surprise as well as what fans have to look forward to in season 2.
“Shawn and I got the call at 9:30 a.m. on a Saturday,” Kripke said. “Shawn was in his Jacuzzi, as he does on Saturday mornings.”
Kripke was taking his kid to soccer practice, but they both stopped everything when NBC informed them that they regretted the cancellation and that they wanted the cast and creators to announce it themselves, on Twitter, in 15 minutes.
