The Blacklist is poised to lose one of its biggest villains to… The Blacklist.
The potential offshoot will star How to Get Away With Murder‘s Famke Janssen, whose character, Susan “Scottie” Halsted, will be introduced in series’ May 5 episode. The May 12 episode, meanwhile, will serve as the official backdoor pilot for the spinoff.
Rumor has it that Blacklist regular Ryan Eggold will also have a major role in the project, with Tom and Scottie’s relationship mirroring the mothership’s Liz (Megan Boone)/Red (James Spader) dynamic.
A source, meanwhile, stresses that there is currently no series commitment for the spinoff. A decision will likely be made in May.
