After one season on NBC, Timeless was canceled. However the intense followers, who name themselves “Clockblockers,” prompted such an uproar that NBC renewed the present for a second season solely three days after initially canceling. On the finish of season 2, NBC pulled the plug as soon as once more, and the Clockblockers cried foul. In a form of compromise, NBC scheduled a two-hour Christmas sequence finale film that tied up free ends and gave much-needed closure to the story.
