According to NBC’s updated schedule, the series will not air in its normal Friday 8 p.m timeslot beginning tonight and continuing May 3-17, with the show returning on May 24 and May 31 for the final episodes of its fourth season. “The Blacklist” will air in its place, moving up an hour from its normal 9 p.m. slot. The sixth season finale of “The Blacklist” is set to air on May 17.
The news comes as “Blindspot” is still awaiting word on whether or not it will be renewed for a fifth season at the broadcaster. Though nothing is official yet, the move does not bode well for the future of the drama series.
As Variety previously reported, “Blindspot” has been on the bubble at NBC previously and this season is no different. The show is averaging just a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49 in the Nielsen Live+7 numbers this season.
The series stars Jaime Alexander, Sullivan Stapleton, Rob Brown, Audrey Esparza, Ashley Johnson and Luke Mitchell. It was created by Martin Gero, who serves as executive producer along with Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter. It is produced by Berlanti Productions and Gero’s Quinn’s House, Inc. in association with Warner Bros. Television.
