NBC has renewed its freshman drama series Blindspot for a second season, weeks after it received an additional script order.
Blindspot, starring Sullivan Stapleton and Jaimie Alexander, is off to a promising start. The series ranks as the #1 new fall series among adults 18-49, averaging a 3.7 rating with 12.7 million viewers overall so far this season, according to “most current” averages from Nielsen Media Research through the season’s opening six weeks.
Blindspot is also one of the most time-shifted shows on television, growing by +71% so far this season in adult 18-49 rating going from its next-day “live plus same day” rating to “live plus seven day Nielsens (from a 2.65 to a 4.54) and by more than 5.7 million viewers overall (9.3 million to 15.1 million).
The series follows Jane Doe (Jaimie Alexander), a beautiful woman, with no memories of her past, who is found naked in Times Square, fully covered in intricate tattoos. Her discovery sets off a vast and complex mystery that immediately ignites the attention of the FBI, who begin to follow the road map on her body to reveal a larger conspiracy of crime while bringing her closer to discovering the truth about her identity.
Writer Martin Gero (“Bored to Death,” “L.A. Complex”) serves as executive producer along with Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Mysteries of Laura,” “The Flash”), Sarah Schechter (“The Mysteries of Laura,” “The Flash”), Mark Pellington (“Cold Case”) and Marcos Siega (“The Following”). Pellington directed the pilot episode.
“Blindspot” is a production of Warner Bros. Television and Berlanti Productions.
