In this thrilling new spinoff, the world's most elusive criminals from Red's infamous list come together to form an elite mercenary team as they try to regain their self-worth after a lifetime of inflicting damage on the world. Seeking redemption for their past transgressions, this new group solves problems governments don't dare touch.
While many saw this coming, it is now official: NBC has cancelled The Blacklist: Redemption after one season. The freshman drama premiered earlier this year as a spin-off of The Blacklist, but struggled to find a substantial audience over the course of its eight-episode run.
Spin-offs of successful shows are common, with networks attempting to appeal to the existing audience of an already-popular series. But perhaps the timing for a Blacklist spin-off was a little late, as the once-breakout hit has seen its viewership dip considerably in its later years. With Redemption likely not attracting many new viewers to the franchise, its success would have necessitated a large number of Blacklist viewers to tune into the new entry.
