First Look: Timeless – Season 2 Premiere Photos and Preview!

Are you ready Clock Blockers?!?! You made this happen. Your Tweets, Your Posts, Your Hashtags … You Spoke and NBC listened and Season Two of Timeless premieres on March 11.  We’ve have the good fortune to see the season premiere, “The War To End All Wars”, and can tell you, you will NOT be disappointed.

The official episode description of the season premiere, “The War To End All Wars”: “After barely escaping an explosion at Mason Industries, Wyatt (Matt Lanter) and Rufus (Malcolm Barrett) chase the Mothership back to a French battlefront during World War 1 to rescue Lucy (Abigail Spencer) from Rittenhouse. There, they discover that Lucy has recruited Marie Curie, 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. ”

Season 2 opens with a bang and keeps the action going full tilt for the full hour. If this is how the whole season goes, fans are going to be besides themselves with joy and I can’t imagine we don’t see a Season 3.  Timeless, on March 11 — be there!

Housekeeping Note: Pop Culture Review will be covering Season2 of Timeless with our patented deep dive recaps and reviews and we are putting together a Season 1 refresher for those that need it.  Also, we highly recommend you Binge all of Season 1, available now on Hulu!
