The bloodbath continues for broadcast shows ahead of the upfronts, with NBC confirming today that it has canceled “The Blacklist: Redemption,” TVLine reports. The show is a spinoff of the James Spader procedural “The Blacklist” built around Ryan Eggold’s “Blacklist” character Tom Keen.
TVLine notes that the show premiered in February to 4.3 million total viewers and a 0.8 average rating in the key 18-49 demo, with the numbers holding “pretty steady” over the series’ eight-episode run.
“The Blacklist” has already been renewed for a fifth season. Eggold is expected to return to the mother ship as a series regular.
