In a rather stunning reversal, NBC has essentially un-cancelled TIMELESS, created by Shawn Ryan and Eric Kripke. The cancellation of the series was announced on May 10, but today Kripke announced on Twitter that the show had been renewed. Although there’s a bit of a twist — the renewal is for 10 episodes only and they will air in the summer of 2018 (or possibly the spring, as the actual date is still up in the air). Still, the news must be a relief for TIMELESS fans.

Shawn Ryan confirmed the renewal as well on Twitter, although he later said that the exact return date is unknown.
A lot of info flying. Initially thought #Timeless would be on next summer, now it may be 2018 spring. Who knows? Just know we're back!
