Taking its place this Sunday will be episodes of the Alec Baldwin hosted game show Match Game, which had a successful run during the summer of 2016. Match Game will run for the next three weeks.
Time After Time is based off the novel by Karl Alexander. The novel focuses on H.G. Wells, who travels through time after learning that Jack the Ripper, the serial killer from the late 1880s in London, has been traveling through time and is killing people in different time periods.
The show is produced by Outerbanks Entertainment, along with Warner Bros. Television. Kevin Williamson, who’s created shows like Dawson’s Creek and MTV’s Scream, and Marcos Siega were credited as executive producers on the show.
Time After Time joins Doubt, Notorious, Pure Genius and Conviction as first-year shows that ABC and CBS have either pulled from their schedules, capped their episode order or trimmed their episode order.
