Time After Time: Season 1
Using the 1979 novel and movie as a launching point, Time After Time chronicles the epic adventures of a young H.G. Wells.
At the age of 28, the 19th century scholar has yet to publish any of his landmark science fiction novels, but his idealistic thinking and radical ideas have led him to actually create a time machine. When his longtime friend—the charismatic (and secretly psychopathic) John Stevenson, aka Jack the Ripper—finds himself cornered by the authorities at Wells' London home, he escapes to present-day New York City, using the time machine. Naturally, Wells follows, but instead of the Utopia he imagined, he finds a world more aligned to Stevenson's temperament. Fortunately, Wells meets up with Jane Walker, an assistant curator at a museum staging an exhibition on H.G. Wells, the Father of Science Fiction. As Wells and Jane come together, they will not only play a dangerous endgame with Stevenson, but also find themselves involved with the incredible characters and scenarios that inspired Wells' War of the Worlds, The Invisible Man, The Island of Dr. Moreau and more. An epic love story charged with danger and adventure, Time After Time gives an unpredictable spin on the mythology of H.G. Wells by looking at the world of today through the eyes of yesterday.
