NBC Cancels 'Timeless' After Two Seasons
The network and studio Sony Pictures Television had been in talks for weeks, leaving the show in limbo.
But there are rumors that a 2-hour series finale movie could be in the works to tie up loose storylines, although the possibility is slim.
Timeless fans know the rough journey the time-traveling drama has been through. It was initially axed after its first season, then NBC resurrected it.
At the time NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt said, "[We] heard [about] the [fan] outcry and went back to the drawing board with our partners at [producing studio] Sony."
After a year off the air, Timeless returned in March on Sunday night with 10 episodes in its second season.
The cast reacted to the news on Twitter:

Oh boy. This news sucks. Not what we expected and NOT what our fans deserved. BIG GULP!
This mama bear wants to thank our #Timeless fans for all their love and support and for creating the vibrant, compassion community we are all now a part of.
