Media outlets have reported that NBC are moving forward with a spinoff to The Blacklist which has officially been named The Blacklist: Redemption.
Plans for a potential spinoff were set in motion last month and this week the shows 22nd episode of its third season served as a backdoor pilot for the spinoff. Redemption will see Tom Keen team up with Susan ‘Scottie’ Hargrave, the chief of Grey Matters, a covert mercenary organisation that solves problems Governments don’t dare touch. This puts Tom in a position of working within a world of dangerous and deadly criminals whilst during the series he will set out on a mission to learn as much as he can about his murky past.
within “a dangerous world of deadly criminals;” at the same time, Tom will go on a mission to learn as much as he can about his murky past. Ryan Eggold reprises his Tom Keen role, while Susan Hargrave will be played by Famke Janssen and also joining them for the series will be Edi Gathegi and Tawny Cypress.
It’s no surprise that NBC are moving ahead with this spinoff series and as for the name of the spinoff…meh. I’m sure for fans that watch the show, they may think that the name of the spinoff works for it once it starts.
