The Blacklist spinoff has found its home at NBC!


NBC has its second drama franchise for the 2016-17 broadcast season.

The network has greenlighted The Blacklist: Redemption to series, marking its sixth new drama for next season.

The Blacklist spinoff, a late-season order that aired Thursday as a backdoor pilot, stars Famke Janssen and the flagship series’ Ryan Eggold.

From Sony Pictures Television and Davis Entertainment, The Blacklist: Redemption counts the flagship’s Jon Bokenkamp and John Eisendrath as writers and executive producers alongside John Davis and John Fox. Michael Dinner directed the pilot, which co-stars The Blacklist‘s Edi Gathegi and Tawny Cypress. While NBC’s schedule will be revealed Sunday, sources say the spinoff is likely to land a slot on NBC’s midseason lineup.
