CALLING ALL CLOCKBLOCKERS!  On December 20, 2018, NBC will air the (maybe?!?) series finale of fan favorite show, Timeless. The two hour holiday-style movie, titled “The Miracle of Christmas,” is written by  Lauren Greer, Arika Lisanne Mittman and directed by John F. Showalter. It appears the regular entire cast of the show will appear in the 2 part episode.  Timeless stars Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Malcolm Barrett,  Goran Višnjić, Paterson Joseph, Sakina Jaffrey, Annie Wersching, and Claudia Doumit.

From the pictures, it looks like Rufus will be rejoining the group sooner rather than later but otherwise, this is the only episode description I can find: “The series finale promises fans an epic, unforgettable thrill ride through the past, present and future, with a healthy dose of Christmas spirit.”

After the jump, we give you all 20 photos for Part II of the episode (that are available as of the time this is published).
