NBC Cancels The Blacklist: Redemption

The Blacklist may be getting another season, but its spin-off will not. Variety reports that NBC has decided to cancel the spin-off of the popular James Spader drama, The Blacklist: Redemption.

Redemption starred Famke Janssen (an actress who probably looks very familiar) as the long-lost mother of Ryan Eggold's Tom Keen who leads a private military organization called Grey Matters that takes on deep-cover assignments. The twisty series was created by The Blacklist's Jon Bokenkamp and John Eisendrath. The series wasn't as much of a ratings hit as its predecessor, averaging a 0.8 in the key 18 to 19 demo, resulting in its cancelation. Deadline reports that Eggold will now rejoin The Blacklist as a series regular following the spin-off's cancelation, although there are no reports yet on the future of Janssen's character.

NBC has canceled a number of series this season, including the DC Comics comedy Powerless, Wizard of Oz drama Emerald City, and the fan-favorite Timeless. Renewals have been been handed down to the majority of their Chicago-set series, with new seasons of Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, and Chicago P.D. on the way. (Chicago Justice is still up in the air.) They also handed renewed Blindspot, The Good Place, Shades of Blue, Superstore, and Taken, along with giving a two season renewal to breakout hit This Is Us.

New series for next season at NBC include the Will and Grace revival, the Jason Katims high school musical theater drama Rise (formerly titled Drama High), the Anne Heche-starring military drama For God and Country, and the Glenn Howerton-starring Lorne Michaels/Seth Meyers comedy A.P. Bio.
