The Blacklist: Redemption: Canceled After One Season

at .

NBC is all about letting its marginal performers live another day, but The Blacklist: Redemption will not be one of the series on its 2017-2018 schedule. 

The network officially pulled the plug on the series earlier today after just one low-rated season. 

Scottie Has a Gun - The Blacklist Redemption Season 1 Episode 8 - The Blacklist: Redemption

The series debuted as a midseason replacement for The Blacklist with 4.3 million viewers and a 0.8 rating among adults 18-49. 

Through eight episodes, the season averaged just 4 million viewers and a 0.8 rating. The series failed to get much traction on the DVR front, with many viewers questioning why it launched in the first place.

The drama only rated higher than Friday night drama, Emerald City, which was also given the pink slip by the network. 

The Blacklist: Redemption followed Ryan Eggold's character from The Blacklist, Tom Keen as he traveled to New York to discuss his late father's estate. 

As is always the case with drama series, nothing is as it seems, and Tom was shocked to learn that his father was actually alive.

Tom was then asked to Join his mother, Scottie (Famke Janssen), on several crazy missions. 

It's unclear whether the spin-off will wrap up on the parent series because there's a good chance Eggold will make his way back to The Blacklist. 

NBC also previously canceled Timeless, while handing out renewals to This Is Us, Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, Chicago PD, The Good Place, Superstore, Blindspot, The Blacklist, Taken, Great News and Shades of Blue.
