Timeless tells the story of a mysterious criminal who steals a secret state-of-the-art time machine, intent on destroying America as we know it by changing the past. The 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? Written by ahmetkozan

Did You Know?


A 2016 lawsuit claims that the series was plagiarized from The Ministry of Time (2015), a Spanish series about (in the lawsuit's words) "the adventures of a three-person government team (consisting of one woman and two men) travelling through time to thwart undesired changes to past events". At one point, the creators were courting Sony to make a US version. NBC and Sony argued that this premise is sufficiently generic that no individual can claim ownership, and that otherwise the shows are entirely different. The case was settled out of court in May 2017. See more »


As with most productions about time travel this one gets the time implications wrong. As soon as the time machine is in the past, whatever had happened has and people in the present won't know what it was. So if they go back with the lifeboat they would not know how it originally would have taken place.

Also there's no reason why the time machines would come back days later than they left. The time spent in the past doesn't influence what time they come back to. See more »

Wishing season 3 would start NOW!!!
14 May 2018 | by tstar-73641See all my reviews

I fell in love with this show right away. At first right it reminded me of Quantum Leap , but much better with a way better cast ( no offense Scott Bakula ) It seems like tv is being taking over by all the reality crap and singing shows. We need more of something like Timeless, besides it's teaching history to the kids who watch it. My Granddaughter is only 10 and she loves watching it and researching the actual events after watching the show. She thinks is soooo cool! Please keep this show moving forward and if ratings are a problem, then maybe a better time slot and day would work better. I have to record it cuz it's on to late for me. 4 am comes way to soon.
