It’s the end of the
list line for The Blacklist: Redemption. NBC has cancelled the spinoff after one season, TVLine has confirmed.
Redemption, an offshoot of NBC’s James Spader-starring procedural The Blacklist, starred Ryan Eggold as his Blacklist character Tom Keen and Famke Janssen as Tom’s mother Scottie, who ran a private military corporation called Halcyon Aegis with an army of covert mercenaries.
The Blacklist: Redemption debuted in February to 4.3 million total viewers and a 0.8 demo rating, and held pretty steady over its eight-episode run. That said, among NBC dramas it only rated higher than one-and-done Emerald City, while matching Grimm’s farewell run and the already-renewed Shades of Blue.
The spinoff unofficially launched with a backdoor-pilot episode of The Blacklist (“Susan Hargrave”) in May of last year.It’s possible that Tom Keen will be reuniting with Liz and Red Reddington soon, though: NBC renewed The Blacklist for a fifth season earlier this week. UPDATE: Eggold will indeed be rejoining the mother ship.
