The action drama follows Tom Keen (Ryan Eggold), Susan “Scottie” Hargrave (Famke Janssen), and Matias Solomon (Edi Gathegi) “as they aim to be a force for good and right dangerous wrongs.” The cast also includes Tawny Cypress and Adrian Martinez.
During this month’s Television Critics Association press tour, executive producer John Eisendrath described Redemption as much more of a “spy show” compared to The Blacklist. He also mentioned this show will center on a different kind of parent-child relationship:
The telling of the story has an odd, weird dynamic between a parent and a child. It’s very different from the story of who Red is; there’s a more relatable relationship for viewers here.”
And how will Redemption work with The Blacklist? Eisendrath revealed the 15th episode of The Blacklist will segue straight into The Blacklist: Redemption premiere as “Tom Keen walks from one episode into the next.”
The Blacklist: Redemption premieres on NBC on February 23rd at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
