Saved mere days after cancellation last year, the Sony produced time-travel drama Timeless has been cancelled for a second time by NBC.
The drama saw NBC reverse its cancellation after its first year due to public outcry by its loyal and very vocal fan base. The shows first season had sixteen episodes, while the second season was shortened to only ten episodes.
The second season two part finale that aired on May 13th had over 4 million viewers. I
t was a cliffhanger where future versions of Wyatt (Matt Lanter) and Lucy (Abigail Spencer) appeared to tell their younger selves it was time to save Rufus (Malcolm Barrett).
NBC has cut a check for Eric Kripke (Supernatural) and Shawn Ryan‘s (The Shield) time travel series Timeless. We’ve got the trailer for the new series and it looks interesting. Abigail Spencer (Oz the Great and Powerful) stars along with Matt Frewer (Orphan Black), Goran Visnjic (Extant), Matt Lanter (Ultimate Spider-Man), Paterson Joseph (Jekyll) and Malcolm Barrett (The Hurt Locker). Are you ready for more Time jumping adventure? (more…)
He’s currently in post production on The Avengers, he just wrapped up his secret little adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing and now inn an effort to seemingly be the hardest working film nerd on the planet, Joss Whedon is laying the ground work for his next project. Vulture recently talked to Mad Men actress Abigail Spencer and she spilled the beans that she’s involved, “His next movie, I start that next month. It’s my first time [doing a project with Whedon], but I’ve always wanted to work with him. I’m so excited to do it.” Of course there is next to nothing for details however she did say this “It’s the most romantic film in the history of time. It’s a supernatural romance.”
Whedon is no stranger to the supernatural, both Buffy and Angel were deep in that vein (vampire pun), so it will be interesting to see how this new unnamed project unfolds. When we know, we’ll be telling you.
