'Timeless' Cast and Writers on Second Cancellation: 'Gutted by This, Guys'




 

"Timeless" fans, the writers and cast of the show are just as saddened by the cancellation as you are.

"Gutted by this, guys, I know you are too," showrunner Eric Kripke said on Twitter. "Behind the scenes, Sony has been trying hard to set it up elsewhere, but no luck so far. I think this 2 hour movie is our best shot. We're ready to make it if @nbc really wants it. Let 'em know how you feel."



Back in May, Kripke sent out an SOS to fans urging them to watch live to get the ratings up, to avoid being canceled. NBC made the decision to cancel the show on Friday, after a resurrected second season didn't deliver the best Nielsen ratings.

Star Abigail Spencer also chimed in after the cancelation, retweeting Kripke's message and posting one of her own.

"It's true. Thank you for all your support #Timeless fans! It's been an absolute joy playing your Lucy," she said. "I sincerely hope we get to do the Timeless movie to wrap up the story and get one more go to wrap up the series in a powerful & elegant way! More soon! xoxo."



"I love you #Clockblockers. You've fought so hard and deserve so much more," Spencer's co-star Matt Lanter said on Twitter after the news broke Friday.



Co-creator Shawn Ryan said Friday was "a sad day for the writers, actors, crew and especially the viewers of Timeless."

"We're proud of the impact @NBCTimeless had on so many people - the students who embraced history as a result of our show, the people who were inspired by our stories of inclusion and acceptance. We saw your tweets and were inspired by you," he added in a series of three tweets.







While the writers and actors seem pretty game for a movie to wrap up the story, fans are pretty adamant about wanting a weekly show, somewhere. And if this cycle of cancelations and renewals has taught us anything, it's that getting canceled doesn't necessarily mean it's canceled forever. "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" was canceled at Fox and then picked up at NBC, and "Lucifer" was canceled at Fox and then picked up at Netflix, for example.

Here is a sampling of disappointed fan tweets:
