Timeless is moving to the weekend.
NBC announced Monday that the time-travel drama — which had been canceled before fans rallied to save the show — will return on Sunday, March 11, at 10 p.m. ET. Unlike the first season’s Monday night timeslot, the 10-episode second season will round out the network’s Sunday nights each week.
Created by Eric Kripke (Supernatural) and Shawn Ryan (The Shield), Timeless follows a trio of time travelers who must race through history to save the world. Season 1 saw the three heroes — scientist Rufus (Malcolm Barrett), soldier Wyatt (Matt Lanter), and historian Lucy (Abigail Spencer) — work to stop a terrorist named Flynn (Goran Višnjić). According to NBC, season 2 will see them working against the mysterious Rittenhouse organization, which was revealed to be pulling the strings in season 1 and to have ties to Lucy’s own family.
In the process, the TimeTeam will visit 1692, 1917, 1941, 1981, and other dates across time, while encountering figures like Marie Curie, Hedy Lamarr, and William Randolph Hearst. Below is the official synopsis for season 2, from NBC:
From Eric Kripke (“Revolution,” “Supernatural”) and Shawn Ryan (“The Shield”), season two of this thrilling action-adventure series will pick up right where we left off with our heroes. We continue to race throughout history with our beloved team: Rufus (Malcolm Barrett), a scientist; Wyatt (Matt Lanter), a soldier; and Lucy (Abigail Spencer), a history professor, in an attempt to prevent the destruction of our world as we all know it. This season they’ll find an unlikely ally in their quest to ruin Rittenhouse, a deadly organization with plans to change history and reshape reality — even though Lucy’s family has been a part of Rittenhouse for centuries. Still making every effort not to affect the past themselves, they will visit 1692, 1917, 1941, 1981 and more. We’ll be introduced to the likes of Marie Curie, Hedy Lamarr, William Randolph Hearst and a multitude of other influential people throughout history.
The series also stars Sakina Jaffrey, Paterson Joseph, and Claudia Doumit. Season 2 of Timeless premieres Sunday, March 11, at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.
