Description:From Eric Kripke (“Revolution,” “Supernatural”), Shawn Ryan (“The Shield”) and the producers of “The Blacklist” comes this thrilling action-adventure series in which a mysterious criminal steals a secret state-of-the-art time machine, intent on destroying America as we know it by changing the past. Our only hope is an unexpected team: a scientist, a soldier and a history professor, who must use the machine’s prototype to travel back in time to critical events. While they must make every effort not to affect the past themselves, they must also stay one step ahead of this dangerous fugitive. But can this handpicked team uncover the mystery behind it all and end his destruction before it’s too late? NBC.com

Status: (Updated 2/25/17) This show improved for its season finale, but those numbers are still low for an expensive NBC entry and its fate is definitely in doubt at this point. It basically squandered its strong lead-in from The Voice in Fall, then slipped pretty low in the ratings without the boost that show was providing when Timeless returned in January. This is currently a Call to Action show, and fans are staging a campaign to convince NBC to bring it back for a second season.  More on that at this link.
