Journeyman To End After 12th Episode
Kevin Falls, creator of Journeyman has confirmed that the first series of the show will most likely end after the twelfth episode.
Falls admitted that due to the never ending writers strike and the average ratings of the show, the team are prepared to wrap it up at episode number twelve.
“Episode 12 is the end of our order,” Falls told premiumhollywood.com, “and let’s not kid ourselves. It’s a long shot that we would get a back nine, given the strike and our questionable numbers.” Falls referred to the extra nine episodes NBC would have to order to make up a full season.
Falls added that Episode 12 is written in such a way that it could constitute an end to the series should it be canceled. “It wouldn’t answer every question, but it would give you a lot to chew on,” he said. “We would give you some answers, and we’d withhold others.”
As the future of the show is uncertain, he said, “we didn’t want to turn over every card. But I think people will find it satisfying, and it’s really good.”
In the upcoming 12th episode, Dan (Kevin McKidd) encounters another time traveler. “And you’ll get some of the answers to what goes on,” Falls said.
