‘Blacklist: Redemption’ wasn’t redeemed for a renewal of a second season

“The Blacklist: Redemption” is officially on the NBC blacklist, as the Peacock Network cancels the spy-thriller spin-off after one season.

“The Blacklist” next season as Tom Keen, a former Blacklister and trained covert operative who fell in love with his target: his wife, Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone), the federal agent who forms an unlikely alliance with the notorious Raymond ‘Red’ Reddington – aka the Concierge of Crime – to catch criminals on the Blacklist: terrorists and evildoers law enforcement and government agencies could never find.  For instance, there was not only Tom, but there was also mercenary Mattias Solomon (Edi Gathegi) and Susan ‘Scottie’ Hargrave (Famke Janssen), the head of a private intelligence firm called Halycon Aegis.

Together, “The Blacklist: Redemption” finds Tom working alongside them: Solomon, the man who shot and almost killed Liz, the mother of their daughter Agnes, and Scottie, the woman that Solomon hired … and Tom’s biological mother.  Introduced as a backdoor pilot in last season’s finale, “Redemption” follows Tom as the newest member of the mercenary team: working undercover inside Halycon to investigate the mysteries of his past.  Taking on the missions that are legally questionable yet morally justified, they are doing bad for good.

“The Blacklist: Redemption” also starred Tawny Cypress, Adrian Martinez, and Terry O’Quinn.  The series aired on Thursdays, the night that once belonged to USA Network’s “Burn Notice”, followed by CBS’ “Person of Interest” in its first two seasons.

“The Blacklist: Redemption” ended with a shocking cliff-hanger, but with Eggold coming back to the original “Blacklist”, there’s a chance that could be resolve sometime next season.

The two-hour season four finale of “The Blacklist” airs this Thursday at 9pm.
