‘Blindspot’ Renewed for Fifth and Final Season by NBC

NBC has five series left to make a call on for next season

NBC’s drama “Blindspot” will return for a fifth and final season next year.

“Blindspot,” which airs on Fridays, stars Sullivan Stapleton, Jaimie Alexander, Rob Brown, Audrey Esparza, Ashley Johnson and Ennis Esmer. The drama joins 13 other returning series including “The Blacklist,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago Med,” “Chicago P.D.,” “Ellen’s Game of Games,” “Good Girls,” “The Good Place,” “Law & Order: SVU,” “Manifest,” “New Amsterdam,” “Superstore” and “Will & Grace.”

“Blindspot’s” renewal for the 2019-20 season comes after it was removed from NBC’s schedule for May sweeps. It will return to finish the final two episodes of its fourth season on May 24 and May 31. “Blindspot” is averaging a 0.8 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic, according to the “most current” data from Nielsen, which includes a week’s worth of delayed viewing where available.

The renewal for “Blindspot” still leaves “Abby’s,” “A.P. Bio,” “The Enemy Within,” “This Is Us” and “The Village” awaiting official pick-ups for next season.

Earlier on Friday, NBC picked up “SNL” vet Kenan Thompson’s comedy, “The Kenan Show.” Earlier this week, NBC ordered to series “Bluff City Law,” “Council of Dads,” “Sunnyside” and “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist,” to go along with the previously-ordered “Law & Order: Hate Crimes.”

“Blindspot” is produced by Warner Bros. Television, Berlanti Productions, and Quinn’s House.
