It looks like we won’t be making many more time travelling trips with Dan Vassar as NBC has let the time for renewing the series slip through their fingers, according to “The Hollywood Reporter. The decision date for a pick-up on the series was December 11, with NBC execs. making no statement about the series continuing on the network.
While it is still possible to bring the series back at some later date, as time passes those chances get much slimmer.
“Journeyman’ stars “Rome” actor Kevin McKidd as a San Francisco journalist who finds himself unstuck in time. Unable to control when and where it will happen, his character finds himself revisiting different dates in his past to help others out of terrible situations.
“Journeyman” was allowed to complete production on its first 13-episodes. The last two will air soon. We can only hope that some other network owned by NBC or others see how good this show really is and give it a second chance, however unlikely that is.
NBC is yet to announce the fate of its other new SF series the “Bionic Woman.” It too slipped by the December 11 deadline for pick-up, but without any announcement one way or the other of its future on the peacock network. NBC’s third new SF series “Chuck,” was picked up to complete its entire first season.
