During the 2016-17 television season, the second season of NBC’s Blindspot TV show was a middle-of-the-pack ratings earner. While it didn’t do poorly enough to get cancelled, after it was renewed for a third season, it was moved from Wednesdays to Fridays. Is the Peacock Network just biding time ’til it has a good sized syndication package, or can this series regain some momentum on a less competitive night? Will Blindspot be cancelled or renewed for season four? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
An action thriller, Blindspot stars Sullivan Stapleton, Jaimie Alexander, Rob Brown, Audrey Esparza, Ashley Johnson, and Luke Mitchell. After amnesiac “Jane Doe” (Alexander) is found in Times Square, FBI Agent Kurt Weller (Stapleton) and his team work to decipher her intricate tattoos. Despite a web of conspiracy and corruption, they begin to uncover the clues therein, as well as Jane’s identity. The third season on NBC kicks off 18 months after the events of the season two finale. Although they parted ways thanks to a series of mysterious circumstances, the team must reunite to handle a new crisis.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.
