June 22 (UPI) -- Timeless co-creator Shawn Ryan hopes to conclude the series with a two-hour TV movie.

Ryan, 51, spoke out in a series of tweets Friday after NBC canceled the sci-fi drama for a second time.


"This is a sad day for the writers, actors, crew and especially the viewers of Timeless," Ryan wrote. "We are all extremely proud of what we made and know that it was more than just a show for so many of our fans."

"If NBC is sincere in wanting a 2 hour movie to give much needed closure to our amazing @NBCTimeless fans, we are ready to make it. We don't want the journeys of Lucy, Wyatt, Rufus and the others to end yet. #ClockBlockers," he added.

Abigail Spencer, who plays Lucy Preston, shared similar sentiments on her own account.

"It's true. Thank you for all your support #Timeless fans! It's been an absolute joy playing your Lucy. I sincerely hope we get to do the Timeless movie to wrap up the story and get one more go to wrap up the series in a powerful & elegant way! More soon! xoxo," she wrote.

Timeless, starring Spencer, Matt Lanter and Malcolm Barrett, was initially canceled in May 2017 ahead of its Season 1 finale. The show was picked up again and completed a second season in May.

Entertainment Weekly reported Timeless was canceled for a second time following lengthy discussions. Sources said there have been talks about wrapping up the Season 2 cliffhanger finale with a two-hour TV movie.
