The fall broadcast season’s highest-rated new series has received an order for a second season. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that NBC announced the renewal for “Blindspot” today.
“The drama continues to follow the trajectory of time slot predecessor ‘The Blacklist,’ which earned its own early vote of confidence after its strong post-‘Voice’ showing during the 2013-14 season,” THR reports. “Of course, ‘Blindspot’s’ ratings are now well above ‘The Blacklist’s.’ The Greg Berlanti-produced series has been an exceptional performer, both on Monday nights and with delayed viewing, averaging a 3.7 rating among adults 18-49 and 12.7 million viewers.”
“Blindspot,” from Warner Bros. TV, stars Jaimie Alexander and Sullivan Stapleton.
Said NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke: “We are over the moon with the success of ‘Blindspot,’ and want to thank our producers and amazing cast for creating one of the most riveting shows on television. Jaimie and Sullivan have done an amazing job of ratcheting up the tension each week in trying to unravel the mystery of Jane’s tattoos. We literally can’t wait to see what the second season will bring.”
NBC previously handed out extensions bringing “Blindspot’s” order for its freshman season to 23 episodes.
