NBC announced today that Blindspot has been renewed for a third season. This will surely be welcome news to its fans, as the drama has seen its sophomore season ratings slip to levels that left observers questioning its chances for a return.
Blindspot premiered in 2015 as one of the year's most promising entries, with strong enough ratings to help it secure an early Season 2 pickup. And while its sophomore run started off with decent numbers, viewership started slipping a few weeks in to levels lower than many considered healthy. Its ratings have stabilized though, and remain quite consistent week after week.
Created by Martin Gero, Blindspot follows a mysterious woman who is discovered in Times Square, naked and covered in tattoos. Brought to the FBI with no memory of who she is or where she came from, the realization that her tattoos are all linked to crimes to be solved sets in motion an international plot with far-reaching implications.
