Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. MGM rejected several scripts that was submitted.
  2. It seems likely that MGM didn't want a sequel since the original novel doesn't have a follow up and the first movie doesn't have a sequel based ending.


  • The first movie is stand-alone.
  • George Pal would make a book that serves as a follow-up to the film.
  • George Pal passed away in 1980.
  • A documentary was made in the 1990s, titled The Time Machine: Journey Back, which has a mini-sequel at the end.
