Plot Synopsis

TIMELESS is a one-hour drama series that follows history professor Lucy Preston, who teams with scientist Rufus and soldier Wyatt to try and prevent master criminal Garcia Flynn from changing American history -- and possibly destroying the country -- after he steals a secret state-of-the-art time machine. The trio 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 Flynn. But can this handpicked team uncover the mystery behind it all and end his destruction before it's too late? The series opens when the trio chase Flynn to the Hindenburg disaster of 1937. While there, Lucy, Wyatt and Rufus each have to draw on expertise to save the present and protect the past -- possibly at great personal cost. Then, in the next episode, the threesome trail Flynn to the night of Lincoln's assassination, where they're horrified to learn that Flynn's linked up with history's most notorious assassin, John Wilkes Booth. Putting aside a tragedy of her own, Lucy speculates that Flynn intends to send the fragile nation into chaos by making a bad thing worse, and a debate rages among the team: should they alter history if it means changing it for the better? The second season of TIMELESS premiered Sunday, March 11, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT on NBC. Season 2 picks up right where the series left off with its heroes, as viewers continue to race throughout history with their beloved team -- Rufus, a scientist; Wyatt, a soldier; and Lucy, a history professor -- who are attempting to prevent the destruction of the world as we all know it. This season they'll find an unlikely ally in their quest to ruin Rittenhouse, a deadly organization with plans to change history and reshape reality -- even though Lucy's family has been a part of Rittenhouse for centuries. Still making every effort not to affect the past themselves, they will visit 1692, 1917, 1941, 1981 and more. Viewers will be introduced to the likes of Marie Curie, Hedy Lamarr, William Randolph Hearst and a multitude of other influential people throughout history. In the season opener, "The War to End All Wars," after barely escaping an explosion at Mason Industries, Wyatt and Rufus chase the Mothership back to a French battlefront during World War One to rescue Lucy from Rittenhouse. There, they discover that Lucy has recruited Marie Curie (guest star Kim Bubbs), the famous French scientist and the only person ever to win two Nobel Prizes, to help save the life of a wounded American soldier, only to learn that the soldier is Lucy's own great-grandfather who Rittenhouse is bringing to the present to be their leader.
On Sunday, May 13, 2018 from 9-11pm ET/PT, NBC premiered the Season 2 finale of TIMELESS, debuting back-to-back new episodes:

"The General" (9pm): When the Mothership jumps to South Carolina in 1863, the Time Team partners up with a courageous Union spy and military leader, Harriet Tubman - AKA "The General" - to thwart Rittenhouse's plan to alter the outcome of the Civil War. Back in the present, Rittenhouse hits the team where it hurts the most.

"Chinatown" (10pm): When Jiya makes a daring escape from Rittenhouse that strands her in San Francisco's Chinatown in 1888 with no way home, the fractured Time Team goes back to save her in this emotional and action-packed finale that leaves the team questioning everything.
