“Blacklist: Redemption” has been canceled after one season, a source close to the production told TheWrap.

The show was a spinoff of “The Blacklist,” starring James Spader, which was just renewed for a fifth season by NBC.

The spinoff series starred Famke Janssen as Susan Scott “Scottie” Hargrave as the president of a security firm. It also starred Ryan Eggold as Tom Keen, a character from the original show.

NBC introduced it in a backdoor pilot in “The Blacklist” before giving it an eight-episode first season that premiered this year.

Even in its soft series debut, “Redemption” didn’t do much for the network in terms of ratings. It did, however, do better from week one to week two.

A representative for the network declined to comment on the record.

The news comes in the middle of a busy week for broadcast TV as all the main networks are announcing their renewals and cancellations. So far, NBC has renewed a trio of Dick Wolf Chicago shows — “Chicago Med,” “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago PD” — along with “Blindspot,” “Taken,”  “The Good Place,” “Great News” and “This Is Us,” as well as returning series “Superstore” and “Shades of Blue.”

Meanwhile, the time-travel drama “Timeless,” the DC Comics comedy “Powerless” and the “Wizard of Oz” adaptation “Emerald City” have already been canceled.
