Back in June, Timeless once again lamented the show's cancellation after NBC gave the time-traveling drama the boot for a second time. But those who were still holding out hope for more from their favorite characters are in luck.

When it was first announced that the series wouldn't return for a third season, it was also shared that the studio and network were considering a two-hour movie to serve as a series ender. Well, as of July 31, fans' wishes were granted and NBC revealed that Timeless would get a special two-part finale.
