17 Things We’re Hoping For in the Timeless Finale Movie

Goodbyes are hard, but sometimes, you're lucky enough to get some closure. In this case, NBC gifted Timeless fans with closure for the holiday season. Following the outrage from dedicated fans, the network greenlit a two-hour series finale movie that will air on December, 20. Related: Get HBO via Prime Video Channels for Addictive Dramas, Hilarious Comedies & Hit Movies! This is technically the second time NBC "saved" the series, but as we reach the homestretch, we're wondering if the time-traveling squad will reverse the damage done on the Timeless Season 2 cliffhanger and save their beloved friend, Rufus. Here's what we're hoping the finale movie addresses before we permanently send Lucy, Rufus, and Wyatt off in the time machine! 1. Rufus' Rescue We left off on a major cliffhanger: Rufus died, and future Wyatt and Lucy emerged from the time machine to help the present-day squad save their friend. Rufus' rescue mission will surely be the focus of the film because we need our dynamic trio reunited before the hour is up. 2. Fun with the Dopplegangers The addition of future Lucy and Wyatt opens up a lot of possibilities. For one, they know what happens in the future which means they will be very insightful when it comes to providing answers to some of our other lingering questions. Plus, it'll be entertaining to see both sets of characters interact with one another and see how they've grown as heroes. Future Lucy does look pretty badass! 3. Two Places at Once? Throughout the two seasons, all of the time traveling was done to time periods where Lucy, Flynn, Wyatt and Rufus didn't already exist. So how were future Lucy and Wyatt able to travel to a time period where they not only existed, but they were able to confront their past selves? Were they able to find a glitch in the future? Did they invent a new time machine with advanced capabilities? How would this not cause some kind of time warp? Answers, please. 4. The Mystery of the Journal Again, traveling back to a time where you exist used to be frowned up, but since it is now a possibility, does that mean future Lucy was the one who traveled back in time to give Flynn the journal? Why was the journal so important in the first place? Why did she give it to Flynn of all people? And did future Wyatt know about it? 5. Wyatt or Flynn? It's no secret that both these men harbor deep feelings for Lucy. Can you blame them? She's lovely. The love triangle must have resolved in the future, so we need to know if Lucy picked Flynn or Wyatt. Both have their pros and cons: Lucy and Wyatt have more chemistry, but their love story was cut short by Jessica's resurrection. On the other hand, Flynn understands Lucy on an emotional level, but his motivations have always been to bring back his wife and kids. Truthfully, I'm fine with either love interest just as long as Lucy is happy. 6. What Happened To Wyatt and Jessica's Baby? Jess..

The Big Bang Theory Adds Lindsey Kraft for Final Season Arc

Zack is coming back to The Big Bang Theory, and he's bringing a brand new wife along for the ride. According to TV Line, Brian Thomas Smith will return to The Big Bang Theory as Penny's ex-husband before it signs off for good in 2019. Lindsey Kraft will take on the role of the newest wife in Zack's life, and it sounds like there's going to be trouble in store for the couple. “Zack and his wife want a baby, but when Zack is infertile, they ask Leonard for help,” reads the logline for The Big Bang Theory Season 12 Episode 12 which is slated to air January 10. Related: The Big Bang Theory: Ending After Season 12! Kraft will appear on the series in a recurring capacity. The actress has previously appeared on The Conners, Grace, and Frankie, and Living Biblically. The Big Bang Theory remains a hit for CBS, with The Big Bang Theory Season 12 currently averaging a 2.3 rating in the adults 18-49 demo. While that figure represents declines of almost 20 percent year-to-year, it remains the highest rated comedy series on TV, all the while being the highest-rated and most-watched series on CBS. It will end with 279 episodes, solidifying itself as the longest running multi-camera series in television history. The show's demise was revealed back in August, just hours after star Mayim Bialik tweeted about the first taping of the season. In a joint statement, Warner Bros. Television, CBS and Chuck Lorre Productions said, “We are forever grateful to our fans for their support of The Big Bang Theory during the past twelve seasons." "We, along with the cast, writers and crew, are extremely appreciative of the show’s success and aim to deliver a final season, and series finale, that will bring The Big Bang Theory to an epic creative close.” We think it's fair to say the series will leave a hole on the network's schedule, and all eyes will be on spin-off Young Sheldon to see if it can continue to be a success without the robust lead-in.

SMILF Boss Frankie Shaw Investigated Over Misconduct Claims

SMILF Season 2 is slated to launch next month, but the show's star, creator, writer, and director Frankie Shaw has been investigated over abusive on-set behavior, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The bombshell report states that it has all paved the way for one of the show's stars to exit the series after SMILF Season 2. That actress is Samara Weaving who plays Nelson Rose on the hit Showtime comedy. Nelson was under the impression that a sex scene for the series would be shot on a closed set, and that monitors would be switched off. However, it is alleged that Shaw instructed the monitors to be switched on, and Weaving was apparently unaware of them being turned on until she found out after the filming of the scene was over. Related: SMILF Season 1 Episode 1 Review: A Box of Dunkies The actress turned to Disney and SAG-AFTRA in the aftermath with a complaint about what was going on throughout the production of the critically acclaimed show. The report also states that Weaving had an issue during the production of SMILF Season 1 in which she had a no-nudity contract, and there was apparently an incident on the set in which Shaw took Weaving into a trailer and complained about her not wanting to do nude scenes. Rosie O'Donnell went on to turn to Showtime and a producer of the series because she was concerned about what was going on. But a statement was later issued on behalf of O'Donnell in which she praised Shaw for being "an immensely gifted young talent," and adding that "I love acting on SMILF." Another big topic in the explosive report focused on writers who allegedly complained to the Writers Guild of America about black and white writers being placed in different rooms. In a statement to THR, Shaw said, “I work daily to create an environment in which everyone should feel safe, and in which I can continue to grow as a leader and manager." "I am now and always have been open to hearing and addressing all concerns and issues that fall within my control. It pains me to learn that anyone felt uncomfortable on my set." "I sincerely hope we can work together to resolve any and all issues, as I am committed to creating a workplace in which all people feel safe and heard.” ABC Studios also issued a statement a statement on the matter, insisting that it is “committed to a safe work environment, and when we are made aware of issues we address them appropriately." "Complaints were brought to our attention after season two production wrapped, and we are investigating. We will take appropriate steps going forward if season three is ordered.” Related: SMILF Season 1 Episode 8 Review: Mark's Lunch SMILF started its life as a short film, but Showtime swooped in to order a series adaptation of it.

Elementary Canceled After Seven Seasons at CBS!

It's the end of the line for Sherlock and Joan. CBS has announced the upcoming seventh season of Elementary will be the last for the Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu-fronted series. “A lot of parties came together and talked about their positions on the show — both in terms of business and in terms of creative — and we all decided that this was an opportune time to say goodbye to a show that has been very, very good to us,” CBS Entertainment President Kelly Kahl said in a statement to Deadline. Related: Elementary Renewed for Season 7 Added EP Carl Beverly: “[Series creator] Rob [Doherty] set out to tell a story, and it feels like he has accomplished what he had set out to do." "The actors, the crew and the cast feel that way, and we feel that. So are grateful and celebrating what we had and looking forward to the future.” The renewal for Elementary Season 7 was a surprising one, especially when you consider the fact that the ratings have not been strong for the series in several years. Elementary Season 6 averaged just 3.8 million total viewers and a 0.5 rating in the demo earlier this year. However, the show has a lucrative syndication deal that has raked in a lot of money for CBS over the years. That deal brings in as much as $3 million per episode produced, and that's before international sales are taken into consideration. On domestic ratings alone, the series should have been canceled several years ago, but the power of CBS owning the series combined with the syndication deal has allowed the show to remain on the air for longer. Elementary Season 7 will span 13 episodes and will bring the story to a close. Elementary Season 6 concluded with Sherlock and Joan making their way to the U.K. signaling a big change in the storylines for the series. What are your thoughts on the cancellation?

Tell Me a Story Scores Season 2 Renewal at CBS All Access!

Kevin Williamson has more stories to tell at CBS All Access. The streaming platform today announced that Tell Me a Story has been renewed for a second season. Tell Me a Story Season 1 launched back in October to mixed reviews. It has a 54 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. "The first season of TELL ME A STORY turned conventional fairy tales on their heads, interweaving and modernizing three classic stories into a compelling thriller for today’s audiences, in a way only Kevin Williamson can,” said Julie McNamara, Executive Vice President, Original Content, CBS All Access. “We can’t wait to surprise and entertain viewers with a whole new set of tales next season.” Related: Tell Me a Story Season 1 Episode 6 Review: Guilt Set in modern-day New York City, Tell Me a Story Season 1 interweaves “The Three Little Pigs,” “Little Red Riding Hood” and “Hansel and Gretel” into an epic and subversive tale of love, loss, greed, revenge and murder. The cast includes James Wolk, Billy Magnussen, Dania Ramirez, Danielle Campbell, Dorian Missick, Michael Raymond-James, Davi Santos, Sam Jaeger, Zabryna Guevara with Paul Wesley and Kim Cattrall.

Riverdale Round Table: Will The Town Survive Being Quarantined?

The River Vixens suffered a seizure at Riverdale High, Jughead reunited with his mother and sister, and Betty freed the patients from the Sisters of Quiet Mercy on Riverdale Season 3 Episode 8. Below, TV Fanatics Becca Newton, Brandon Vieira, and Kat Pettibone debate Betty's future as the Gryphon Queen, the true origin of Gryphons and Gargoyles, and the consequences of the town now being quarantined. What are your first thoughts of Riverdale Season 3's midseason finale? Becca: My thoughts are all over the place, but it's Riverdale, so that seems appropriate. Anyway ... Luke Perry is so underutilized, and Fred really needs to stop giving into Archie's choices so easily. Archie's journey into the wilderness is the plotline I'm least excited about resuming. I'm doubtful the payoff will be worth the screen time. How JB is portrayed is pretty much how I imagined her. Riverdale went in a different direction with Gladys than what I was hoping for, but I'm glad they didn't abandon the idea of Jughead and Gladys being more similar in personality than Jughead is to FP, even if how they're demonstrating that is not the way I wanted. Gina Gershon is already proving to be a great addition. As entertaining as watching Betty and Ethel square off agast each other was, it was good to see Betty snapEthel out of the brainwashing and their team up. I hope Ethel continues to be a prominent player in the episodes to come. Related: Enjoy UNLIMITED access to thousands of Movies and TV shows with Amazon Prime Video. WATCH ANYWHERE. CANCEL ANYTIME! Brandon: It wasn't my favorite episode this season, but it was a pretty darn good one. It really set up a lot of what we can expect moving forward and I'm pretty excited about all the possibilities. I'm glad to see that a Varchie reunion isn't in the works anytime soon and perhaps a "Veggie" (Veronica and Reggie) coupling may be in our near future. Plus, I'm glad to see Betty saving the day and kicking some butt sans Jughead. I may be one of the few that thinks this, but Betty needs to move on from Jughead. She can do so much better. Luckily, the way the story for both characters panned out tells us that Bughead will be separated for an even longer period of time. While Jughead's family reunion was nice, the best part of the midseason finale was the Veronica and Cheryl team-up, with an assist from Kevin. I would like it if these three continued to work together moving forward. Oh, and Riverdale needs more Kevin, like ASAP. Kat: It was dark, but it was one of the best "finales" they've attempted. Although it brought up a lot more questions (that will hopefully be answered in Riverdale 3B), it also answered some in a way that actually made sense. There was context to back up most of their reveals, and that's not something we've always seen from the show. I thought both the Betty and Archie/Jughead storyli..

17 Most Exciting Renewals and Saves of 2018!

It's always exciting when our favorite shows receive a renewal, but things don't always work out the way we'd like. TV shows are renewed and canceled all the time, that's television for you. Which ones make the cut depend on a variety of factors, and a network's decision to not renew a series is seldom an easy one. Related: Enjoy UNLIMITED access to thousands of Movies and TV shows with Amazon Prime Video. WATCH ANYWHERE. CANCEL ANYTIME! But sometimes when one network loses hope in a show another one finds potential and ends up saving a series from certain death, giving it a brand new lease on life. As yet another amazing year of television draws to a close, let's take a look back at the most exciting renewals and saves of 2018! 1. Last Man Standing Last Man Standing's cancellation at NBC last year came as a huge shock, especially considering its following and that it was a strong ratings performer for the network. Thankfully, FOX flew in to save the day and brought the Baxter family back to our screens for its seventh season without missing a beat. 2. Lucifer One month following the series' surprise cancellation after three seasons at FOX, Lucifer fans rejoiced as Netflix saved the series from being sent to the depths of hell. Season four will consist of ten episodes and is slated for a 2019 return. Thank the Lord (of darkness?) for streaming services. 3. The Good Place Since its debut in 2016, The Good Place has consistently pulled in solid numbers for NBC, but the same could have been said about Last Man Standing's stint on the network and we know how that turned out. ABC knows they have a clear winner on their hands and it's exciting to know that it will be receiving a fourth season. The number one NBC comedy series has definitely found itself in a good place. 4. Brooklyn Nine-Nine If Law & Order and The Office had a love child, you'd get Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The NBC series found a winning formula by mixing a police procedural with single camera comedy. There hasn't been anything else quite like it on television, which is what made FOX's decision to cancel the series after five seasons so dissapointing. Fortunately, NBC pounced on FOX's mistake and gave Brooklyn Nine-Nine a second chance at life. The series returns for its sixth season on January 10, 2019. 5. Gotham The Batman origin series returning for a fifth season was up in the air, but luckily, it received a final season order at FOX. While it's unfortunate that Gotham will be coming to an end after hitting its stride in seasons three and four, it's comforting to know that the series will be given a proper ending. 6. The Resident The Resident has quickly found a following and FOX's medical drama has seemingly left a positive impression on the network. FOX has since ordered a full-season pickup, giving the series a full 22-episode second season. View Slideshow

The Walking Dead Star Slams Rick Grimes Storyline: It Sucked!

The Walking Dead has come up against a lot of criticism over the years, and the latest serving of it comes courtesy of former series regular Michael Cudlitz. The popular actor was unimpressed with the way Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) retaliated to the evil ways of Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). "Let’s be real clear, if he was gonna kill anyone other than me and I had a choice, it would be Rick," Cudlitz said at Walker Stalker Con Atlanta, reports Comicbook.com. "Because how many more people was that asshole gonna get killed? "'Hey, I got a plan, let’s show up to where all the Saviours are with 500 weapons, have them step 15 feet out into the balcony unarmed, and shoot the windows out above his head.' You all know that sucked." Related: The Walking Dead: AMC Greenlights Three Movies If you watch The Walking Dead online, you know that Cudlitz starred as Abraham on the AMC hit. He was brutally killed off on The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 1 at the hands of Negan. That season largely focused on the aftermath of Negan's actions as Rick and his people tried to find a way to get the upper hand on the supervillain. On The Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 1, Rick turned to his allies and attacked the Sanctuary aka the place the Saviors once called home. "It was like the A-Team showed up,” Cudlitz said. “He’s right there! He’s right there! He walks out the door. It’s not even like he peeks out. He’s like ‘Well, Rick! Ha ha ha! We better run!’” Cudlitz admitted that “didn’t care for that moment, in case anyone isn’t aware of that.” “It’s like one of those things where you’re so into something, and then you’re like, ‘really, guys?’” Cudlitz said. “I get pissed off because I love it.” Cudlitz need not to worry about Rick's actions anymore because Andrew Lincoln exited the series during The Walking Dead Season 9. However, the actor will be staying with the franchise since AMC has ordered a trio of movies to follow Rick wherever he ends up after being taken away on a helicopter and presumed dead by his friends and family. Okay, The Walking Dead Fanatics. Do you agree with Cudlitz? Hit the comments below. The Walking Dead returns Sunday, February 10.

TV Ratings Report: God Friended Me Picks Up Steam
