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?
On Monday, February 20, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, NBC premiered the Season 1 finale of TIMELESS. In the season ender, "The Red Scare," with their lives on the line, the team chases Flynn to 1954 through the paranoid corridors of Joe McCarthy's (guest star Spencer Garrett) Washington D.C., en route to a secret, once-a-generation meeting of Rittenhouse leaders. While there, Lucy must wager the ultimate sacrifice to save history as we know it. Guest starring Daniel Di Tomasso, Johnathan Tchaikovsky and Bruce Gray.
