The two-hour series finale of Timeless is less than a month away and an assortment of teasers and clues have been released, so we’ve compiled what we know so far about the highly anticipated television event!

The Setting

Abigail Spencer has confirmed that the finale will pick up immediately where the last episode of the second season left off, which was the tense moment when Lucy and Wyatt’s future selves showed up to save the day (and hopefully Rufus).

Additionally, it’s not just a coincidence that these episodes will be airing right before the holidays. It will be the same time of year in the Timeless universe as well, and the episodes will reportedly feature moments in history that occurred on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Finally, the episodes will take place across multiple continents and several centuries. One of those locations and time periods has been confirmed as North Korea in the 1950s, where the Time Team will find themselves in the church of a war-torn village.

The Final Scene

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Matt Lanter confirmed that Wyatt, Lucy, and Rufus will not be in the final scene of the finale:

“What I think is pretty cool is the end end — the very end — doesn’t end on us. It doesn’t end on the team. It’s larger than us three, or it’s larger than the team, which I think is cool. It’s a little bit of a closed chapter for our characters, but things are left open at the end of this series finale. And our characters are still around, so you never know. There’s always potential to have to save the world again.”

Lanter’s words echo a spark of hope for the fate of Timeless, a show that was revived from the brink of cancellation twice already thanks to its passionate fanbase.

Although the series finale will be a bittersweet event, fans can rest assured that these swan song episodes will certainly do the show justice. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Goran Višnjić said:

“You would never see episodes like this on television; this is really made for fans. We’re going to close all the loops. We’re going to tie all the loose ends. We’re going to come back with a storm of words that our fans love and memories from previous episodes.”

Shawn Ryan, one of the show’s creators, expressed his excitement for the upcoming event in a recent tweet.

Fans, who are equally excited, have also not given up hope for the ultimate fate of Timeless. In their latest effort to show their unwavering dedication to saving the show, Clockblockers have banded together to fund Timeless billboard advertisements that will be appearing in Times Square on Nov 28.

Fans should also be on the lookout for the Nov 30 issue of Entertainment Weekly, which is slated to include a full preview of the final episodes!

For more updates, make sure to follow the official Timeless Twitter. Production officially wrapped on Nov 15, so fans can most likely expect more teasers in the weeks to come!

The two-hour series finale of Timeless airs on Thursday, Dec 20 at 8/7c on NBC.
