May 14 (UPI) — Days after the co-creator of “Timeless” revealed NBC had canceled his freshman drama, the network announced it has renewed it.

“We’re coming back for more. #Timeless returns for Season 2 on @NBC,” the show’s Twitter account said Saturday.

“It’s true! NBC heard from the fans, went back in time and changed history! #Timeless is getting a Season 2! #TimelessResuscitated!” the sci-fi program’s co-creator Shawn Ryan confirmed.

The show cast Abigail Spencer as a college history professor who travels into the past alongside a soldier (played by Matt Lanter) and engineer (played by Malcolm Barrett) to track a master criminal (played by Goran Visnjic), who has stolen a time machine.

Co-creator Eric Kripke said Wednesday he and the “Timeless” family were “surprised and upset” to learn the show had been canceled.
