The original Shudder series Deadwax gets a premiere date, and the two-hour finale for NBC's Timeless gets a slot on the schedule in our latest development roundup.

First up, Deadwax, Shudder's short-form horror series about one vinyl collector's obsessive search for a record that kills anyone who listens to it has landed a premiere date on Shudder. The horror-centric streaming service will premiere its first-ever original scripted series on Thursday, Nov. 15.

Created by sound designer Graham Reznick, who co-wrote the PlayStation hit Until Dawn, Deadwax will drop all eight of its 10-ish-minute episodes at once. The series screened in its entirety last month at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas, where Reznick explained how his obsession with all things sonic led to the creation of the series — as well as teased where the show could go in future seasons.

Next up, Timeless fans will get to celebrate the holidays a few days early this year, as NBC has announced it will air the two-hour series finale on Thursday, Dec. 20, according to TV Line.

News of this inevitable finale is somewhat bittersweet, as fans rallied to save the time-traveling series after it was canceled following its first season finale in 2017. Then, after Timeless returned for a second season, the show was canceled a second time. After which, a two-hour finale was announced to tie up any loose ends.

Although Timeless might not be gone for good, as series co-creator Eric Kripke said the TV movie "won't close the door forever."

Fans, however, can expect some closure, as the show's creative team promises "an epic, unforgettable thrill ride through the past, present, and future, with a healthy dose of Christmas spirit."
