The Timeless crew has pulled off a miracle.

According to showrunners Shawn Ryan and Eric Kripke, the NBC time travel drama has been renewed by NBC days after its cancellation. While it's unclear exactly what saved the new show, it appears fan support was a major factor.

While the show had relatively strong numbers throughout its five-month season, viewership diminished nearing the finale. Starring Abigail SpencerMatt Lanter, and Malcolm Barrett, viewers followed the trio of time travelers as they worked to save time and history.

Following Timeless' cancellation, Ryan and Kripke asked fans to #SaveTimeless on Twitter, sharing that the show might find new life with another network.

Shortly afterward, they announced the its survival, crediting fans for the bizarre change of fate.

"Can't thank the #Timeless fans enough for fighting so hard for us online and spreading the word about the show," Ryan wrote on Saturday. "Can't wait to show you more."

Timeless season 2 is now headed to TV some time in 2018.

Fans really can make a difference, guys.
