Fans of “Timeless” have been worried that the show wouldn’t get picked up for a second season. The show left a major cliffhanger, which is common for showrunner Eric Kripke. This is the man who has left major cliffhangers for every single season of “Supernatural.” However, the Winchester brothers had the benefit of being more secure on their network (at least in later years), whereas “Timeless” Season 2 has always been questionable.

Strong start but weak finish for 'Timeless' season 1

There’s no denying that the show had a strong start. “Timeless” piloted with more than 12 million viewers, when the DVR ratings are included.

For an NBC show, this was excellent and it looked certain that the show would stay. That was until the next week when the ratings dropped, continuing to drop until the season finale. “Timeless” season 1 ended with just over six million viewers.

Kripke realized that the show was in trouble. At the start of 2017, he urged fans to tune in live. Sharing a post on social media, he made it clear that bubble shows like this (and like “Supernatural”) would only survive if the fans tuned in live on a weekly basis. Once a network cancels a program, a petition to bring it back is useless.

Season 2 of 'Timeless' will be pitched next month

NBC is still to announce whether the time-travel show will be picked up for another season.

The six million viewers isn’t drastically low compared to a few other shows, but it’s not as good as some of the favorites like the “One Chicago” and “Law & Order” franchises, either. The longer it takes for NBC to announce a renewal, the less likely it will be.

That being said, Kripke is still to pitch a second season to the network.

He shared that that would happened in April, so there is still some time. NBC also hasn’t announced if any of its shows will be picked up for next season, suggesting that a full decision hasn’t yet been made and “Timeless” season 2 isn’t in danger just yet.

Stay tuned for more information about "Timeless" as it becomes available.
