After NBC executives announced that the show would be cancelled and not returning to the airwaves in 2018 to pick up where it left off with a significant cliffhanger, the show's fans put on a shock-and-awe campaign to convince the peacock network a renewal was warranted; impressed by the turnout, the brass changed their minds, granting the time travel yarn a reprieve as a summer series on the channel.
Well, an article on Deadline suggests that the show dodged yet another bullet, that of a kinda/sorta "intellectual property" lawsuit from creators of El Ministerio del Tiempo (The Department of Time), a Spanish-language drama with essential the same formula and format of travelers correcting events gone astray in time. I remember reading about the lawsuit near the start of Timeless's first season and was curious what had become of it. It looks like all interested parties reached a resolution outside of court, and that's definitely another positive development for NBC.
As always, thanks for reading ... and live long and prosper!
